2. Thank you, Enthusiast. Regardless of what the internet is full of,
Edited on Sun Sep-01-13 10:51 AM by No Elephants
whoever unrecc'd my post has to have been registered at DU2.

I was not among the most popular at DU2 because I was in the group that began criticizing Obama's decisions when he was still stocking his nominees with Republicans and right of center Democrats. So, the group of DUers who cannot tolerate criticism of Obama might unrec on general principles. And, we know from past experience that a couple of posters who fit that description do lurk here from time to time.

Then again, Republicans (the ones who consciously know they are Republicans) would also unrec my posts on general principles. And there were certainly on DU2 as well.

I just remembered something.

During the Bush administration, I took an internet test designed to see where in the political continuum from left to right one falls.I believe in God and I love my country (as distinguished from the acts of the USG). On the other hand, I believe in the Sermon on the Mount, too. I think those things may explain why the test found me to be ever so slightly left of dead center (and I do mean dead). That is how I used to see myself until I posted about Obama. On DU, I'm way to the left of Marx, apparently.

Thing is, to see me either as Republican (because I criticize Obama) or as to the left of Marx (because I criticize Obama and other New Democrats), you have to be pretty far to the right. Then again, how much difference philosophically, really, is there between New Democrats and Republicans who consciously know they're Republicans?
