Considering that at least half of this site wants Elizabeth Warren over Hillary Clinton proves that many on the left still hold delusional positions.

Because Warren won't run? Has to be it. Warren is a far better choice as a person, although the right will see her as a much bigger threat to their corporate overlords than Hillary would be.

It could never happen anyway.  It would take congress and the president together to do that.

Let's see
1) More rights for GLBT folks? Check
2) Obamacare? Check
3) No new wars? Check.
4) Republicans pissed off? Check.

Whole lotta concern trolling of liberals going on lately.

Maybe the left should go on an apology tour.

So, the link to the original piece wasn't enough, we need a link to a MJ article excerpting the piece?  Swell.

for example, by responding more aggressively to the Great Recession or by pounding relentlessly on the theme of middle-class economic distress.

Wow, good non-ideas. *eyeroll*

It has nothing to do with left or right.  The strings on the puppet are pulled by the same puppeteers as they have been for now 100 years.  Vote whatever.

Why, it's almost like a number of liberals have figured out that the most commie extremist Marxist leftist that ever lived in the WHITE House is a moderate centrist. When the counter-voice is so far to the right that they've almost reached MAX_INT and flipped to the far left, even the center looks like it's falling off the commie cliff into satan's grasp.

All we did was elect a Democrat twice, maintain a majority in the Senate, and overwhelmingly vote for Democratic candidates for the HoR.

Why can't you libs do more to obstruct Republican obstructionism?

Oops, my bad. I see the author of TFA is refuting the original Salon piece.

That's what I get for NRTFA.

stpauler:
2) Obamacare? Check    Sure, we could have had single payer or a public option plan, but the "lib'rullest lib'rul to ever lib'rul" made sure big pharma and insurance companies got to stick their snouts in the trough first.
3) No new wars? Check. And, we're leaving Afghanistan when, again?
4) Republicans pissed off? Check. It doesn't take that much to anger a Republican. Hell, read a book without moving your lips, and 9 out of 10 Republicans who watch you do it will assume you think you're better'n them.

OK fine, I"ll admit it.  It's MY FAULT that Obama isn't the lefty leftist lib I wish he was.  I myself had all the power to change him and everyone else in American politics, but I just didn't do it.

Sorry.

Don't be silly. It's the same folks who gave Obama his time machine; so they aren't any older, they just travel back and forth through time with no paradoxes.

You know, if you're not going to RTFA, you could at least look at the source. That way, you can decrease your chances of saying something that makes you sound like a blindly partisan tool. HINT: It's Mother Jones, who are not exactly known for their love of Republicans or Republican policies.

I'm totally aware of MoJo, thanks.  This "holy crap did you notice Obama's a centrist?!?!?" pearl-clutching is retarded.  From day 1 the guy was talking about compromise and reaching across the aisle.  Only idiots ever believed that he was ever a far-left liberal.  In fact, only idiots believe that far-left liberals even exist in American politics at the federal level.

Fox spewed "MOST LIBERAL PRESIDENT EVAR" talking points for years, and people are just now realizing they were lying/stupid the entire time."

Why take her from somewhere that she can actually try to do some good, and put her in a position that she won't be able to get anything done?

Seriously, if anyone thinks she'd get more (or anything) done as President, they haven't been paying attention the past 6 years.  I hope she stays in the Senate for years to come.

sprawl15: why are you asking me to explain quotes from your posts


I don't keep a catalog of everything I've ever said so I can figure out what context some excerpt was said in. For example, both of the following contain that string:

The idea that rape is a silencing tactic is ludicrous on it's face.
As currently condoned and implemented by the patriarchy, rape is a silencing tactic.

Outside of the larger context of whatever discussion that appeared in, the string "rape is a silencing tactic" is pretty vague. I can assure you, however, that I don't consider rape to be some kind of organized strategy or getting people to stfu and gbtw.

So I guess the question is, why did you bother tagging me with a string you don't seem to understand?

You need to understand that what goes on inside your head is going to be incomprehensible to most sane people so if you have a point it's probably best to actually write it out rather than leave us to read the tea leaves of your apparently random quotes.
