     - I think he has hired them because instead of fighting against them  harun   Dec-10-08 08:44 AM   #24 
        - Or maybe he generally agrees with them.  QC   Dec-10-08 09:09 AM   #30 
           - Only Obama knows, but my opinion is he is as appalled by them  harun   Dec-10-08 09:57 AM   #31 
           - I agree.  Laelth   Dec-10-08 10:23 AM   #37

                          - Why don't you show a little effort and accept the challenge I issued first?  wyldwolf   Dec-10-08 01:10 PM   #49

                                - 6th dodge of the question and counting. Or should I take your dodges as an acceptance?  wyldwolf   Dec-10-08 01:22 PM   #58 
                                   - nth time you have made the challenge without providing any evidence of your claim  Billy Shears   Dec-10-08 01:37 PM   #64 
                                      - despite all your dancing around, I'll assume you have accepted the challenge...  wyldwolf   Dec-10-08 01:39 PM   #65 
                                         - False. He actually dissapproved of Clinton's 1996 legislation on Welfare.  Billy Shears   Dec-10-08 01:54 PM   #67 
                                            - We're not done with the first issue. You're saying Obama lied in his book "Audacity of Hope?"  wyldwolf   Dec-10-08 01:57 PM   #69 
                                               - no, he didn't.  Billy Shears   Dec-10-08 02:04 PM   #71 
                                                  - So you're picking an older quote over a newer one in his book? So he was lying in his book?  wyldwolf   Dec-10-08 02:07 PM   #72 
                                                     - have you even provided a quote? or are we supposed to just take your word for it?  Billy Shears   Dec-10-08 02:13 PM   #75 
                                                     - yep, in post 70.  wyldwolf   Dec-10-08 02:16 PM   #79 
                                                     - so because he refused to attack Clinton later, that somehow negates his lack of support for the Bill  Billy Shears   Dec-10-08 02:29 PM   #84 
                                                     - oh, because he contradicted your quote later, you'll just go with the 11 year old quote  wyldwolf   Dec-10-08 02:30 PM   #85 
                                                     - he didn't contradict anything  Billy Shears   Dec-10-08 02:43 PM   #90

                                                     - but I'm not eviscerated by your ability to dodge and spin  wyldwolf   Dec-10-08 05:02 PM   #106 
  - Call them out, never give them a moment's peace. Rouse the citizenry to taunt them & pelt them with  scarletwoman   Dec-09-08 09:10 PM   #8 
  - Vote every last fucking one of them out in the primaries.  Sebastian Doyle   Dec-09-08 09:12 PM   #9 
  - No. Just no. I'm fucking delighted that Tom Udall won in NM  cali   Dec-10-08 08:51 AM   #29 
  - post a thread about it on DU?  paulk   Dec-09-08 09:20 PM   #11

  - Short of tar-and-feathering them, what's the best way to get rid of the whiney progressives?  wyldwolf   Dec-10-08 08:46 AM   #25 
  - ooh! I'll answer that! Put them in a round room and tell them there's a clue in the corner!  wyldwolf   Dec-10-08 08:49 AM   #26 
  - lol, MrB would have loved that one!  mtnsnake   Dec-10-08 10:08 AM   #34 
  - There is no such thing as a non-progressive Democrat  Billy Shears   Dec-10-08 12:54 PM   #40

        - awww, don't feel bad. this Country is just moving away from the Right  Billy Shears   Dec-10-08 01:12 PM   #50 
           - aww, don't feel bad. Centrists keep getting elected.  wyldwolf   Dec-10-08 01:13 PM   #51 
              - eLet's see how many Centrists are left after 8 years of a Progressive Obama Administration  Billy Shears   Dec-10-08 01:25 PM   #59 
                 - All of them will be left after Obama's Clinton-like Third Way Presidency  wyldwolf   Dec-10-08 01:26 PM   #60 
                    - why can you not just let the World move on?  Billy Shears   Dec-10-08 01:57 PM   #68 
                       - that would be up to the electorate, not you or I, and currently...  wyldwolf   Dec-10-08 01:59 PM   #70 
                          - you just cannot accept that Obama is not of your ilk, can ya?  Billy Shears   Dec-10-08 02:09 PM   #74 
                             - you must have a problem with the electoral process and the fact "progressives" don't win  wyldwolf   Dec-10-08 02:14 PM   #76 
                                - Obama is a Progressive.  Billy Shears   Dec-10-08 02:19 PM   #81 
                                   - he's a centrist  wyldwolf   Dec-10-08 02:20 PM   #82 
                                      - if he is the centrist you wanted, why was he not your Primary candidate?  Billy Shears   Dec-10-08 02:35 PM   #87 
                                         - umm.. because I had another preference?  wyldwolf   Dec-10-08 02:38 PM   #89 
                                            - exactly. You wanted a Centrist, not a Progressive.  Billy Shears   Dec-10-08 02:45 PM   #91 
                                               - and I got a centrist  wyldwolf   Dec-10-08 02:47 PM   #95 
                                                  - we'll see about that.  Billy Shears   Dec-10-08 04:13 PM   #101

     - Lieberman turned down the job he was offered?  Laelth   Dec-10-08 04:05 PM   #100 
  - feed them a massive dose of LSD and allow them to witness themselves unfiltered.  Billy Shears   Dec-10-08 12:59 PM   #44 
  - Hard to say. Whenever they get defeated politically, they think it's  mmonk   Dec-10-08 01:04 PM   #46 
  - or whenever they get defeated, they just say the winner was already on their team  Billy Shears   Dec-10-08 02:15 PM   #78 
  - Here's an idea. Why don't we get rid of the ultra-right instead?  TOJ   Dec-10-08 01:14 PM   #52 
  - We can do both.  Sebastian Doyle   Dec-10-08 01:33 PM   #62

  - Uh, yeah  brentspeak   Dec-10-08 05:00 PM   #105 
     - Why? I got it right the first time. nt  JamesA1102   Dec-10-08 05:43 PM   #110 
  - I think it would first be prudent to identify what is reprehensible about the DLC  Hippo_Tron   Dec-10-08 04:46 PM   #104 
  - to listen to the netroots over the last 6 years...  wyldwolf   Dec-10-08 05:04 PM   #108 
  - Outnumber them.  JNelson6563   Dec-10-08 05:18 PM   #109 
  - Probably the best way is for Obama to effectuate a progressive agenda.  AtomicKitten   Dec-10-08 06:16 PM   #111 
  - and when he doesn't, it will be funny watching heads explode here  wyldwolf   Dec-10-08 06:19 PM   #112 
     - it speaks volumes that hopes for a better America dashed would amuse you  AtomicKitten   Dec-10-08 06:23 PM   #113 
        - "speaks volumes" is such a cliche.  wyldwolf   Dec-10-08 06:26 PM   #114 
           - If wanting do better than we did in the 1990s is "revolutionary," viva la revolution!!!  AtomicKitten   Dec-10-08 06:35 PM   #118 
              - that's the problem.. Nothing is ever good enough. Some people live to complain  wyldwolf   Dec-10-08 06:37 PM   #120 
                 - So, what's up with your preemptive whine? The show doesn't start til 1-20-09.  AtomicKitten   Dec-10-08 06:40 PM   #121 
                    - no whine here. What you here is amusement  wyldwolf   Dec-10-08 06:42 PM   #122 
                       - Your smug 'tude is what's funny since your DLC candidate lost the election.  AtomicKitten   Dec-10-08 07:10 PM   #123

  - The DLC has become a boogeyman.  Barack08   Dec-10-08 06:30 PM   #116 
  - I recommend a Third Way  izzybeans   Dec-10-08 06:32 PM   #117
