307. The problem Plain And Simple is the Corporate Conservative DLC Dems
We've all heard the stances of the Progressives like Sanders, Feingold, Kucinich, etc. with regard to Health Care, War, Wall Street Bailouts. It wasn't the GOP that reduced Health Care reform to a windfall for private insurance at the expense of the middle class. NO, it was the Right-Of-Center *Centrist* DLC Dems. It isn't the Progressives pushing for more and longer wars, rather they have actively spoke against them, but the DLC plods along successfully pushing their Conservative line while publicly boasting how they really don't care what the Progressives think.

The DLC is a cancer on the Democratic Party and it needs to be excised, sooner rather than later. Is there anyone out there that still wants to tell me that Obama is not a dedicated member of the DLC? I recall whenever I mentioned that Obama was likely a card carrying DLC member during the primaries I was lambasted on DU by the Obama pushers and DLC bots as quickly and harshly as if I had posted a pro-Kucinich article or statement. Well all you pro-"O" folks that chastised folks like me for making such a connection back then, it looks like I get the last laugh after all...of course, I ain't laughing.

Bottom line for me is, if you support the policies and direction espoused by the DLC, then GET THE FUCK out of the Democratic Party. We don't need you Corporate ass kissers, and the Country can no longer afford your politics. I promise to do my part to help you quickly exit the party at every primary opportunity.
