    There is an interesting article written by a reasonably liberal political commentator that addresses the Republicans current situation and makes comparisons to the situations the Democrats were in after the 1988 election. I do agree with the cartoon as far as the Republicans being out of touch with much of the electorate today, but one shouldn’t forget that Obama is a superior politician. I am a Libertarian and disagree with both parties in many ways, but don’t count the Republicans out, they still carried close to half the country. Link to the article:

    I would love to see people toning down the rhetoric though, it’s poison to any constructive change.

    After 2016, Dems 2 best politicians will be out of office. They’ll need someone with the guts to continue Howard Dean’s 50-state strategy, or they could be quickly marginalized to the west coast and the northeast. Not sure the current group has it in them.

    Remove the log from your eye, then help us with the speck in ours.
    O won because he frightened women, bought votes with food stamps and he’s black.
    He’s a Chicago thug.

    Well, I suppose one can hardly blame them. They pine for their homeland of Oldwhitemanistan- of the old white man, by the old white man, for the old white man, as God* intended. They’re just furious that America is no longer that nation.

    Just when I thought narrowminded’s post was the most ignorant on this particular thread, along comes Ima—-

    “Worthless people”…yep, you are a shining example of Christianity, you sad little person.

    Jesus wept.

    “How to win friends and influence people”
    .
    Old book, good information on how not to be like Miss Ima.
    .
    You seem intelligent, probably married an intelligent man. But he treats you like an idiot, and uses short words and no thinking before he speaks. You copy.
    .
    It may be all you know but there is a world full of people that are not like that. Polite thoughtful people that enjoy company and think of what life offers.
    Look around, lurk and listen in public places to how other couples conduct themselves.
    It can be nice to be alive if you let it.

    Maybe just calculate the value of the property and let them pay an exit fee.

    Every time I see the Confederate battle flag, I wonder if the person using it even knows what the actual flag of the Confederate States of America looked like. So far, when asking, I’ve never found one of them that knows the difference.


    It makes me think also of the right-wing “Christians” we see here, and in so many places in the U.S. today. They’re ready to battle, and kill, but don’t get the real message, or know the real “story” of their own “religion”, let alone any others that they want to wage war on.

    Ima: btw you might want to find “An End to Evil, how to win the war on terror”, by David Frum and Richard Perle, written in 2003. It contains all the lies you like to spread, and makes the final conclusion that destroying Islam, the U.N., and every nation on Earth EXCEPT Israel and the United States, is the only answer. It’s total Cr*p, but right up your sewer, ’er, alley.


    While Frum (a Canadian speech writer for “W”, who invented the term “Axis of Evil”) obtained U.S. citizenship in 2007, and has “mellowed” considerably in recent years, which got him thrown off his job at AEI, Richard Perle hasn’t changed a bit, and still runs AEI.


    Frum, and another true conservative, Andrew Sullivan (a gay Roman Catholic of staunch faith no less) DO often speak today of actual conservative values, while dropping the hatred and insanity coming from the “ultra-right” and neocons, who don’t know what “conservative”, or even “Republican” (capital “R”) mean.

    Hey people Romney had a near miss.
    Barry is shaking in his flip flops.
    1% of the vote is not a mandate.

    A troll is someone who posts comments that they are unable to back up with facts. When they are called on their bologna, they resort to personal attacks. Trolls don’t contribute to discussions, and lma generally doesn’t contribute.

    Case in point on being a troll. Where on earth did you get this nonsense and why don’t you look up the facts before repeating it?

    63% of Democrats in the House voted for the Civil Rights Act. 70% of Democrats in the Senate voted for the Civil RIghts Act. 98% of Northern Democrats voted in favor, only 85% of Northern Republicans supported the Civil Rights Act.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Civil_Rights_Act_of_1964#Vote_totals

    The Civil Rights Act would not have passed without Republican votes, but the bill was proposed by JFK and pushed through Congress by LBJ. The Democrats provided more votes for the Civil Rights act than the Republicans did, in both Houses.

    This was the last decent moment of the Republican Party, as far as I’m concerned. Republicans embraced the “Southern Strategy” as a means to power. Segregationist Democrats either reformed their views as Robert Byrd did, or switched parties like Strom Thurmond.
