pretending to be a Dem., D. Karl Inderfurth opined on Wash. Journal


this a.m. he praised smirk a number of times and was "extremely pleased" that smirk made it to Afghanistan. and he dodged caller questions about drug smuggling.

he thinks it's a good idea to sell India gene modified/suicide seeds.

and catch this: he teaches a class at university and he teaches the world is flat economy book. that bunch of neo con crap on the top 10 sellers list.

may he be voted out of office - (if only we had honest elections)

dodo bird suck up.

1. What Do You Think About Dem Leadership?
Edited on Sat Mar-04-06 12:32 PM by John Barrett
I agree that Inderfurth is another corporate lackey and Clinton was just as bad with his NAFTA.

How many think that Democratic Party leadership is even remotely competent? The smirking POTUS is an incompetent fool, who along with many of his comrades in Congress, are destroying our country with corporatism and cheap labor, both outsourced and in sourced. Eighty-Five ( 85% ) of the country clearly sees and opposes it, while Dean and many others in the Democratic leadership position can't even come up with a cohesive party policy that captures the frustration of most working American middle class.

Their outright incompetence in this regard is beyond the pale of comprehension. As someone said on C-SPAN this AM the only thing that the Democratic Party is good for is to oppose the Republicans, which is a sad commentary.

The issues are extraordinarily broad and range from the military industrial complex, to the FDA that unilaterally supports the food industry and big pharma, to the trade policies that obviously favor India and China, to our open insecure borders so that corporate America can have cheap labor.

If the Democrats established a Contract With America that CLEARLY outlines a party position which opposes these many diverse anti-middle class / pro-corporate policies of the GOP they could capture the hearts and minds and votes of most Americans.

3. This Is The Here And Now
Edited on Sat Mar-04-06 02:29 PM by John Barrett
I agree that the validity of both elections is very questionable.

I'm trying to think in the here and now, and Democratic leadership needs to do the same. If the past elections were corrupted then Democrats must strive to win with undisputable margins. The key issue being winning Congress in 2006.

The real important things to Americans are healthcare, loss of jobs, declining wages, Iraq, declining standard of living, loss of US status and many other related economic issues. They aren't the things that have divided the country that Democrat leadership often gravitates towards.
