108. I've been waiting patiently for you to come up in here and drop some knowledge!
Edited on Mon Apr-04-11 04:49 PM by Liberal_Stalwart71
This is a strategy that the Republican Party has perfected since Watergate.

Get people disinterested in politics and hope that that'll keep them home; or, that people will blame the government for their woes.

What's the outcome? DUers hoping that the government shuts down. Democrats becoming "Reagan Democrats." Blue Dogs and DLCers siding with Republicans on taxes, war, and corporate greed.

This systematic brainwashing of Americans--even liberal Americans--has worked brilliantly for the Republican Party.

As they sit on the Senate floor, blocking every single piece of legislation that the House Democrats put forth, they are banking on rank-in-file Democrats like Fearless and others to blame the president. And the president, only.

I continue to witness DUers take shots at the president rather than the Congress or the Senate Republicans who blocked every good idea emanating from the White House.

People become disenchanted, disillusioned, disengaged. Meanwhile, the Teabaggers are riled up and really to work to elect more wingnuts to office.

I'm so jealous of how the Republicans operate and stick together.

I'm not suggesting at all that we act like them, operating in lockstep.

I do, however, wish that Democrats were more realistic than they are and understood how the political process actually works.
