147. Ther gaping hole in your rebuttal is that...
...many of those "Lifelong Dems" you attempt to marginalize and discredit
have 10 year histories at DU,
have been loyal DEMOCRATS for over 40 years,
and have consistently opposed BAD POLICY whether it was the Republicans or the Democrats who were responsible for it.

Many of these ""Lifelong Dems" have a long posting history at DU decrying the corrupting influence of Corporate Money in the Democratic Party, and documenting the betrayal of the FDR/LBJ Democratic Values that have been trash canned by the "New Democrat Centrist Party".

Many of these "Lifelong Dems" have lived long enough,
and worked inside the Democratic Party long enough to KNOW the difference between the Party of FDR,
and what passes as the Democratic Party today.

You disclosed that you had no involvement with politics before 2000,
yet you attack those who have been involved for over 40 years.
Is it because you are a noob at politics
that you can't see the complete abandonment of the New Deal of FDR and The Great Society of LBJ ?
It IS glaringly apparent to those of us who were involved BEFORE the 1990s and the era of "Centrism" brought to us by the DLC.

Many of these "Lifelong Dems" want only to see the Party return to those traditional Working Class Democratic Party Values that made our Party GREAT.

These "Lifelong Dems" have been consistent.
It is NOT about a person, it IS about The Policy.
Its ALL in the archives.

"There are forces within the Democratic Party who want us to sound like kinder, gentler Republicans.
I want a party that will STAND UP for Working Americans."
---Paul Wellstone

You will know them by their WORKS,
not by their excuses.
