    TR, Eisenhower, Nixon, Reagan — all too liberal for the modern Republican party.

    Roosevelt fought for the 99%. He was against corporations as persons, against child labor (hey Newit!), for a progressive income tax, for health care, and for conservation and National Parks. Amazing how far the Republican party has sunk in its quest to only represent the 1%.

    Actually, no. The Republican Party never forgave TR for running as a third party candidate in 1912, thereby assuring a Dem victory. Repub friends he’d known for decades were crossing the street to avoid speaking to him, it was that bad.

    Again, almost too silly to warrant a response; however, this Democratic party isn’t even CLOSE to being socialist. The modern Democratic party is right of Eisenhower, and that includes President Obama. I know that stupid people like to try to throw the S word around like it’s some kind of Scarlet Letter, but if you can put aside the labels for a minute (and I know you can’t) you’ll see that the progressive movement is pointing out that this country is run by corporations for whom profit is not only the bottom line, but the ONLY line! People lose out when profits rule and these corporations have purchased our government. Deregulation has crashed the economy and thrown millions of people out on the street, people with no healthcare, people with starving children. Deregulation is threatening to take away the environmental protections we’ve fought so hard to win. If corporations get their way, the rivers will be catching on fire again, and cancers will increase.etc., etc., etc. Drop the labels and try thinking for a change you idiot!

    Neither party is what they were in the ’50’s. The Republicans became the opposite of TR, and the Dems lost their KKK folks. Not all bad, not all good, however, today’s “Republicans” aren’t EITHER party of the 50’s, more like 30’s, in that country on the other side of the Atlantic.

    …just think what the repubs would’ve done to FDR had he said after Dec. 7…"’i don’t know where the Japanese fleet is & I don’t care.’

    @wbr

    If name calling is the best you can do you’d be better off discussing politics with a six year old. They communicate on that same level. If you have any substance lets hear it. Incoherence isn’t spoken here.

    The only Socialist in the federal government (Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders) says that Obama is nowhere near socialist.
    TR’s Progressive Party Platform of 1912 is too liberal for the Democratic party today. It included, for example, universal healthcare and taxing the rich.
