clambam: There is a tiny element of truth in Bob Dole's comment about Obama in 2009. With full control of the House and Senate, Obama could have and should have called for the launch of a full-scale Congressional investigation of repub misdeeds under the Bush administration, culminating in lengthy prison sentences for the banksters and oil CEOs and treason convictions for Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld. He could have and should have immediately withdrawn all American troops from Iraq and Afghanistan, calling it "a criminally incompetent  error perpetrated by the previous administration which we have no obligation to continue," cut the military budget by two thirds and applied the money to the Stimulus. When Joe Wilson called him a liar during the State of the Union address, he could have and should have had the ushers drag Wilson out of the room and thrown into jail, overnight, and afterwards announced extensive base closings in South Carolina with the comment "The closings have to occur somewhere and Joe Wilson volunteered his state." Obama could have and should have shown some balls but in five years he never has, so we'll just have to limp along with him until the Democrats can install someone tougher in 2016.


Yes yes let us stoop to the level of a Republican that will show em.

swahnhennessy: whidbey: Yep, when Bob Dole comes off looking like a friendly moderate, you know your political party is utterly farked.

When was Dole never a friendly moderate?


yeah the one surprising me is Jan Brewer and her stance on the medicare expansion.

and it's sad that Bob Dole had to go and ruin his appearance by saying Obama wouldn't compromise and reach across the aisle. That's just wrong and he knows it.

OgreMagi: The constant attacks on reproductive rights is one of the reasons I could never join the GOP.


That's mostly hype. A few regulations to try and stop guys like Kermit Gosnell from existing and the media turns it into the Handmaid's Tale. Even a law that allowed religious exemptions for contraception coverage gets flat out lied about and claimed that it forces people to admit to employers if they use birth control.

A lot of posters can say Kermit Gosnell is a monster but most of what he did is the result of their ideological arguments being followed. Birth a live baby and sever it's spine? Ask Obama why he opposed the Born Alive Act. Open a clinic and not get inspected? Ask Gov Ridge why he backed off on the inspection.
  

Bith Set Me Up: That's how big business suckered in all the Teatards. The Tea Party has always been American big businesses' useful idiots.


Yea, like remember the time where big business convinced the US gov't to bail them out by floating them billions of dollars and the Tea Party came out in favor of that? Bunch of suckers. Wait... that was the opposite of what happened.

You may want to research the term "useful idiot" because you're fighting hard and being pretty useful to a cause you claim to despise.

Lee Jackson Beauregard: Show me some right wing that isn't about "racism, exploitation and xenophobia". Then we'll talk.


Let me short circuit this. There is no way to prove this to you because you'll see it in every choice presented. So I'm not going to engage in a futile proof with you.

Hell, saying that America needs to do something about the millions of illegal immigrants because it's taxing the system and it gets met with "OMG! You hate Brown People!"

The Beatings Will Continue Until Morale Improves: Well, duh.

When the John Brich Society attempted to take over the GOP in the 80s, the Republicans soundly rejected them as lunatics. Now rebranded as the teabaggers, the GOP leadership has embraced them.


the reason they weren't able to take over the GOP in the 80s is that the media wouldn't give them the time of day. today, thanks to the erroneous concept of "balance," in which you have to give voice to both sides of any debate, no matter how harebrained or bizarre, the tea party's influence far outweighs its actual numbers.

I think it's unfair to compare these Tea-Party people to the Birchers, Klansmen, Neo-Nazis, ect. of the past.   The old school extreme right didn't want to eliminate government, they wanted to shut-out the people they didn't like:  Niggras, Catlicks, Joos, homos, ferinners, Messicans, commies etc.  The US, and what it had to offer, was for real Muricans.

Compare the above to the current lot of dimwits that have hijacked the GOP.  These people want to eliminate government services for everyone.  The don't want their own children educated.  They are outraged by being given health care and threaten to commit acts of violence over this humiliation.    They would rather see classrooms full of tots gunned down than submit to a background check.   It's really a masterstroke of the 1%.  H.K. Mencken had it right when he said, "Democracy is the worship of jackals by jackasses."

A smart man once observed, "Democracy isn't four wolves and a sheep voting on what to eat. It's one wolf and four sheep - only the wolf has convinced two of the sheep that if they don't vote for mutton, they'll lose the opportunity to become wolves themselves."

This is what happens when Americans stay at home, watch Fox News, only talk to their friends with the same media-infused opinions, and willfully blind themselves to the way things work in the rest of the world.

Yes, there is a "rest of the world" and you won't see it presented the way it is (as opposed to the way it fits American preconceptions) on CNN or Faux. And those billions of folks are not dying to ape the 'murken way of doing things.

Look around a little and you'll get a better idea of just how far the Democrats have "shifted to the left".

Words sure do mean something strange where you come from.

The funny thing is that JFK, LBJ, Carter, and Clinton would all have little problem winning the nomination in the modern Democratic Party. But Eisenhower, Nixon, Reagan, Bush Sr., and even Dubya couldn't. Yet it's the Democrats who shifted, not the GOP.

The Democratic Party may not be "The Left" compared to Europe, but there are leftists, and even far-left personalities. Of course, at some point, extremes are so distorting it's hard to categorize them on a one-dimensional scale. In fact, you'd probably need a z-axis for the likes of Chomsky.

Every Democrat on your list opposed homosexuality and abortion when they ran for office. JFK was also in favor of tax cuts and increased military use. LBJ loved sending the military abroad. The only Democrats on that list that would have a shot would be Clinton and Carter and that's only because their position "evolved".

Of course, JFK and LBJ were anti-communist so that right away disqualifies them as being too right-wing.

Not so.  The GOP can still be right wing, just not as crazy as it currently is.  They can still stick up for religion, just not exclusively Christians.  They can still advocate for celibacy before marriage, but no longer interfere with sex education.  They can be pro military, but also accept reduced spending on it.

Obama loves sending the military abroad, doesn't he? And JFK cut taxes from 90%. You won't find many Democrats who think 90% is the right rate. LBJ wanted to massively expand social programs. JFK might have had trouble, though, I'll grant you that. Homosexuality was largely a non-issue and Carter certainly supports gay marriage now. As far as abortion goes, Carter was no pro-life marcher. Bachman even accuses him of playing both sides, so you can't say he opposed it.

Compared to the difficulties Republican presidents would have had, the Democratic issues are hardly insurmountable.

20 Of The Most Embarrassing Moments In The History Of The Democrat Party

1) The Trail of Tears (1838): The first Democrat President, Andrew Jackson and his successor Martin Van Buren, herded Indians into camps, tormented them, burned and pillaged their homes and forced them to relocate with minimal supplies. Thousands died along the way.

2) Democrats Cause The Civil War (1860): The pro-slavery faction of the Democrat Party responded to Abraham Lincoln's election by seceding, which led to the Civil War.

3) Formation of the KKK (1865): Along with 5 other Confederate veterans, Democrat Nathan Bedford Forrest created the KKK.

4) 300 Black Americans Murdered (1868): "Democrats in Opelousas, Louisiana killed nearly 300 blacks who tried to foil an assault on a Republican newspaper editor."

5) The American Protective League and The Palmer Raids (1919-1921): Under the leadership of Woodrow Wilson, criticizing the government became a crime and a fascist organization, the American Protective League was formed to spy on and even arrest fellow Americans for being insufficiently loyal to the government. More than 100,000 Americans were arrested, with less than 1% of them ever being found guilty of any kind of crime.

6) Democrats Successfully Stop Republicans From Making Lynching A Federal Crime (1922): "The U.S. House adopted Rep. Leonidas Dyer's (R., Mo.) bill making lynching a federal crime. Filibustering Senate Democrats killed the measure."

7) The Tuskegee Syphilis Experiment (1932-1972): Contrary to what you may have heard, Democrats in Alabama did not give black Americans syphilis. However, the experimenters did know that subjects of the experiment unknowingly had syphilis and even after it was proven that penicillin could be used to effectively treat the disease in 1947, the experiments continued. As a result, a number of the subjects needlessly infected their loved ones and died, when they could have been cured.

8) Japanese Internment Camps (1942): Democrat Franklin D. Roosevelt issued an executive order that led to more than 100,000 Japanese Americans being put into "bleak, remote camps surrounded by barbed wire and armed guards."

9) Alger Hiss Convicted Of Perjury (1950): Hiss, who helped advise FDR at Yalta and was strongly defended by the Left, turned out to be a Soviet spy. He was convicted of perjury in 1950 (Sadly, the statute of limitations on espionage had run out), but was defended by liberals for decades until the Verona papers proved so conclusively that he was guilty that even most his fellow liberals couldn't continue to deny it.

10) The West Virgina Democrat primary is rigged by John F. Kennedy (1960): From an interview with the late, great Robert Novak.

John Hawkins: You also said that without question, John F. Kennedy rigged the West Virginia Democratic primary in (1960), but that the Wall Street Journal killed the story. Do you think that sort of thing is still occurring with great regularity and do you wish the Journal had reported the story when it happened?

Robert Novak: In my opinion, they should have. They sent two reporters down to West Virginia for six weeks and they came back with a carefully documented story on voter fraud in West Virginia, buying votes, and how he beat Humphrey in the primary and therefore got the nomination. But, Ed Kilgore, the President of Dow Jones and publisher of the Wall Street Journal, a very conservative man, said it wasn't the business of the Wall Street Journal to decide the nominee of the Democratic Party and he killed the story. That story didn't come out for many, many years - 30-40 years. It was kept secret all that time.

11) The Bay of Pigs (1961): After training a Cuban militia to overthrow Castro, Kennedy got cold feet and didn't give the men all the air support they were promised. As a result, they were easily defeated by Castro's men and today, Cuba is still ruled by a hostile, anti-American dictatorship.

12) Fire Hoses And Attack Dogs Used On Children (1963): Birmingham, Alabama's notorious Commissioner of Public Safety, Democrat Bull Connor, used attack dogs and fire hoses on children and teenagers marching for civil rights. Ultimately, thousands of them would also be arrested.

13) Stand In The Schoolhouse Door (1963): Democrat George Wallace gave his notorious speech against integrating schools at the University of Alabama in which he said, "segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever."

14) Escalation In Vietnam (1964): Lyndon Johnson dramatically escalated our troops' presence in Vietnam while he simultaneously put political restrictions in place that made the war unwinnable. As a result, 58,000 Americans died in a war that ultimately achieved none of its aims.

15) Chappaquiddick (1969): The Democrats' beloved "Liberal Lion" of the Senate, Ted Kennedy ran off the road into a tidal pool with passenger Mary Jo Kopechne in the car. Kennedy swam free and then spent 9 hours plotting how he would reveal the news to the press while she slowly suffocated to death.

16) Democrats Deliver South Vietnam To The North (1975): "In 1975, when there were no Americans left in Vietnam, the left wing of the Democratic Party killed the government of South Vietnam, cut off all of its funding, cut off all of its ammunition, and sent a signal to the world that the United States had abandoned its allies." -- Newt Gingrich

17) The Iranian Hostage Crisis (1979-1981): 52 Americans were held hostage by the government of Iran for 444 days. After Jimmy Carter's disastrous, failed rescue attempt, the hostages were finally released after Ronald Reagan's inaugural address.

18) Bill Clinton turns down Osama Bin Laden (1996): In Bill Clinton's own words, "'Mr. bin Laden used to live in Sudan. He was expelled from Saudi Arabia in 1991, then he went to Sudan. And we'd been hearing that the Sudanese wanted America to start meeting with them again. They released him. At the time, 1996, he had committed no crime against America so I did not bring him here because we had no basis on which to hold him, though we knew he wanted to commit crimes against America.' - Bill Clinton explains to a Long Island, N.Y., business group why he turned down Sudan's offer to extradite Osama Bin Laden to America in 1996." Had Bill Clinton accepted Sudan's offer, 9/11 would have likely never happened.

19) Bill Clinton was impeached (1998): Clinton became only the 2nd President in American history to be impeached after he lied under oath about his affair with Monica Lewinsky.

20) America loses its AAA credit rating (2011): The United States was first given its AAA credit in 1917, but it couldn't survive Barack Obama's record breaking spending. In 2011, America lost its AAA credit rating.

0Icky0: Mrbogey: Of course, JFK and LBJ were anti-communist so that right away disqualifies them as being too right-wing.

Some of us are not actually afraid of North Korea and Cuba. We recognize that communism has lost.
But on the Right, they still wet their pants every day in fear.


That's because the Right considers anyone who is not of the Right to be Communist.

Man, it's getting to the point where you can't advocate for the nationalization of an industry and wealth redistribution without people calling ya a commie. What happened America? You used to be cool.

ib_thinkin: OgreMagi: When Obama first took office as President, some republicans asked to meet with him to work out some differences.  He responded with, "I won."

As I remember it, they presented him with a list of policy demands. You say "work out some differences," and I say, "delude themselves into thinking that November 2008 couldn't possibly have just happened."


It wasn't budget demands per se, but you are pretty darn close. Link.
