I know this conversation has already been repeatedly presented, but the myopia of the White House on this issue, even by "on-the-record" types like Gibbs and Axelrod, is just mind-boggling.

1. You could change the word 'Union' to the word "Gays"
and it would be just as valid

6. They should pull support from the party and just support candidates...
Edited on Sat Jun-12-10 12:53 AM by cascadiance
... that continue to work for Unions, kind of like the way people like me donate money now. I only give to candidates I like. DCCC and DSCC can go take a hike. And now that they kicked out Howard Dean from the DNC, the DNC can take a hike too. Tell Obama and party leadership that this will continue until they pass EFCA!

Folks like Grayson, Sanders, Weiner, Kucinich, etc. will get my money.

8. How long
does one stay in an abusive relationship? Should you just ignore the first shiner and suck it up?

Such a good provider. Deep down really loves me. Yeah that sounds about right. Until the next time, and the next.

I am getting pretty fed up already with a lot of what is going on. I seem to keep second guessing my changed primary vote but what is done is done.

9. Rahm may have just lost
the 2012 election for BO. This is a giant wedge issue. If DLC won't support labor over corps, they're done.

In a state like Arkansas, if almost 50% of the Dems are progressives, do the math. Other states are very likely to be more.

Does anyone have any idea what the state by state ratios are for progressives v. conservative Dems?
