Great news, folks. At DU, it is open season. Remember the rules about insulting Dems ...
... undermining campaigns, etc?

No more!

You can now call the President of the United States a dipshit, actively rally against his presidency, and openly announce your desire for his defeat in 2012 and suffer no consequences. Fear not the ALERT because it is AOK.

Hello, Sarah Palin!

3. I am with you on that -- IBTL!
Call the president a dipshit? That won't get locked, regardless of the number of alerts.

5. You mean we can't call Democrats "dipshits" anymore?
Or does this just apply to the President? It doesn't apply to Ben Nelson or Joe Lieberman or any of the Bluedogs?

6. How about "holding accountable"? Is that now off limits?

9. "Holding accountable" = "Sarah Palin 4 Prez"
Never post this:

http://www.thedailyshow.com/watch/tue-june-15-2010/resp...

Instead, post list of accomplishments with things like "Directed a commission to look at" and so forth. Do not count cutting Head Start and Pell grants as accomplishments, or... SARAHPALINSARAHPALINSARAHPALIN

15. Obama did not cut Pell Grants. Period. Why spread this bullshit?
They confuse the acts of Congress with the acts of the President.

11. It's sickening isnt it.
I really wonder about some of these people on this board. If they are an example of being "progressive", I want nothing to do with it.

13. Yep. Don't forget "Democrats suck!". I've seen thread titles

14. Useless things at the new DU: Supreme Court Nominations, Planned Parenthood, Lilly Ledbetter...
Winning in 2012.

20. Sure it is.
Edited on Sun Apr-10-11 08:45 AM by JTFrog
The Supreme Court nominations are not worth voting for the Democratic Nominee in 2012 "if" it's Obama. Saving Planned Parenthood was really just another sell-out and Lilly Ledbetter was just another appeasement.

And we'd be better off not Winning 2012 because then we could move further to the left in 2016. :crazy: :crazy: :crazy:

I have indeed heard this shit right here at DU over the past week. :shrug:

21. Somehow I have a little trouble believing
that Barack Obama's re-election chances hinge heavily on whether or not he is criticized on DU.
