"forever blur the differences"
Edited on Mon Jul-25-11 11:17 PM by LoZoccolo
Oh come on. Part of the reason we're in this mess - according to some - is because progressives protested and sat out the 2010 election in order to shake off some blue dogs (which were elected by other Democrats in the primary, by the way, or at least not challenged). I don't believe that, but they used to like to claim that. And don't tell me that the blue dogs voted like the Republicans unless you can name one that did - otherwise I have no reason that you actually looked it up. Also, 80% of the remaining blue dogs voted against the Cut, Cap, and Balance bill, against the Republicans. Every blue dog had a significant partisan voting record, but if you want to name one that didn't, and go on to name five bills where they voted against the Republicans which still aren't important to you, then I will believe that you actually researched this claim that they are not better than the Republicans to you (this information is not difficult to find by the way, and I'll give you a hint that a major newspaper has already compiled it for you at their website).

Do you realize that Obama actually committed more money to the stimulus than the New Deal, even adjusted for inflation? Did you actually know that? Do you really think that he wouldn't reverse some of this damage that the Republicans are inflicting if he didn't have to work with a Republican-dominated House of Representatives, when he has shown in the first two years that he is willing to increase spending when he is in a position to do so?
