    Well, Gingrich’s Contract on America lasted two years before the voters realised what they’d been sold…

    I sure hope history doesnt repeat itself. Unfortunately, it probably will due to the far “right” (far wrong) corporate owned media spewing lies and fabrications on a public that has no time to learn the truth on its own.

    …and in 2008 you could have put a donkey in place of the elephant. Neither of the parties have learned a single thing, and a combination of seemingly short-term memory and shiny object voting facilitates this voting one failed party in, getting tired of it, voting the other failed party in, getting tired of it….lather, rinse, repeat.

    “They’ve learned not to allow their enemies to split their vote so the donkey wins.”

    • Oh.. cause that’s totally not happening in places like Alaska right now.

    No one has learned anything. You’dve thought Dems would have learned not to be so spineless. But no.

    Where is the D yelling “bush did it?” Where is the D yelling “it is for your own good?” “Tax the evil rich” That Donkey should be sulking in the corner.

    Someone explain the actual differance between the donkey and the elephant to me. It is like two brothers pointing at the other yelling “He did it, not me!” When does the country come to the realization that we actually do not need either of these self-serving parties. At this point it seems that no federal government would be better than the debaucle we have now.

    You got that right; dumb and dumber.

    @sidl - Other than the religious vitriol there really isn’t much of a difference. Both sides will take money from one group of people and give it to another. It’s just a matter of whom is which.

    We just have to get out and vote. There are way more Progressives in this country than Regressives (“conservatives”). That was demonstrated in 2008. Unfortunately, the Regressives are scared you-know-what-less as they believe the lies they’re being told by Beck et all, and they’re out in force. I was going to compare them to the cockroaches in my neighborhood, but that’s mean- they’ve drunk the “tea” and we should have compassion..

    We need to take the Democratic party back from the bribe-takers in our party and leave the Republican party to continue it’s steady implosion.

    VOTE 2010!! http://www.transclassical.com/blog

    @sidl… you’re correct. Except there is at least one difference. The Democrats- those not on the take from the corporations- say, “they did it- now let’s fix it” and the Regressives- almost all on the take- say, “they did it- now let’s not do anything at all. Let it rot”.

    Also- who did do it? I guess it depends on what “it” is, right? Clinton, for all his f-ups with NAFTA, still managed to set up a fairly strong economy. Bush dismantled that right off, occupied two countries at the cost of $trillions and got us right to where we are. Now, Obama and the Democrats face this weird “threat of filibuster” thing coming from the party of “Nyet” and we wonder why things are moving so slow.

    Democrats - not perfect, not even close. Republicans - not your friend (unless you’re very wealthy). That’s the difference.
