The Democratic Message For 2010

Marc Ambinder, The Atlantic

Apr 28 2010, 7:06 AM ET

“We have more accomplishments to run on than any Party in a long time,” Kaine’s expected to say.

  • We’ve gone from recession to recovery.
  • We’ve made more progress in the war on terror in the last eight months than was made in the preceding eight years.
  • We’ve strengthened our relationships with our allies around the world.
  • Two million people or more have jobs today who wouldn’t have without the bold action taken by this President and Democrats in Congress.
  • We have the first Latina and only the third woman ever on the Supreme Court.
  • We’re using science and fact in policy making instead of ideology and politics.
  • We have the most transparent Administration in modern history, with tough ethics standards, and we are wringing the influence of special interests out of the policy making process.

Oh, and Republicans == bad.

  1. Inspiring words which will surely lead us to victory in November.

  2. nothing else matters.  But so far as I see, power is more entrenched than ever, and DC is political theater to mask foregone conclusions.  Manipulation is at an all-time high, saturating virtually our every decision.  It’s amazing to watch how Democrats have sold their principles for the money and power on a variety of fronts.  

    The difference we make is marginal at best.  The one hope is that regulators who care about regulation may have an effect before long to start to turn the ship of state in a more proper course.

    But if Obama does as before, as is his history and pattern, there will be no change as promised, except in name.

    “We have more things we need to accomplish than any Party in history,” Kaine would say if he had the balls.

    • We’ve gone from jobless recession to jobless recovery.
    • We’ve expanded the war of terror more in the last eight months than was made in the preceding eight years.
    • We’ve strengthened our relationships with our allies around the world. We now have more warlords on the payroll than ever before.
    • Two million people or more besides temporary census workers would have jobs today if it wasn’t for the bold action taken by this President and Democrats in Congress!
    • We have the first republican Latina and only the third woman ever on the Supreme Court.
    • We’re pretending to use science and fact in policy making instead of ideology and politics and at least half the electorate has bought it.
    • We are most transparent Administration in modern history, with no ethical standards (tough!), and we are wringing the influence of special interests out of the policy making process and paying them off instead. Anyone with half a brain  can see right through us, and anyone with half a brain supports us!!
  3. …. this grateful that I don’t have to rewrite that into…  what language was he intending ?….  Oh, thank you fate, FSM, Creator, God Goddess Buddha Allah Jehovah Geebus Sun Moon Stars Galaxy Universe.

  4. Eight months ago I had problems sleeping at night. I would lie awake in a state of some anxiety, wondering if the terrorists were going to make a successful attack on the homeland.

    Now that more progress has been made against Al Qaeda in the past eight months than in the previous eight years I have been able to get in my regular seven hours.

    It’s important to have CiC who has the intelligence to win the war on terror.

    I say thank you not just for myself but for my two daughters, ages 4 and 6…”

    —–the DNC’s dream voter, they don’t exist, at least in human form.

    Well I guess so I saw through his bullshit at his first obvious tactic to kill the public option.  

  5. I am so radicalized by this administration which is in no way Democratic or democratic that I am freakin rooting for Godot or maybe Nadar or Maybe None of the above.    

  6. finally finally finally ran outta patience with their lying ass fucking excuses during the health care bullshit

    ( THANK YOU JANE and many others)

    I really really really … HOPED ??

    ((ha ha ha ha ha … what a fucking idiot ))

    that the political incompetents would feel so horrible for being so goddam incompetent, so disgusted with themselves, so shitty, that they’d put a kib0sh on the rahm-0-sell-0uts 0n 0ccaisi0n … and guess what – that kib0sh sc0re is ZER0!

    I’m 50 – in the 90’s I was busy transitioning from … cooking on fishing boats in Alaska 20 years ago, cuz cooking on the beach was offering me 22 or 24k a year, to getting my math b.a. on a shitload of debt, to finagling myself into the seattle dot.bomb thing AND even working database support for 2+ years at microsoft!

    I just didn’t have time to watch every political burp and fart … I barely remember that fucking repeal glass- … seagull whatever, I was so goddam busy trying to get more skills / avoid head hunting bosses.

    THANK YOU SELL-OUT-O-FUCKS! I’ll piss my money and my time away on … WWF??… before your fuckers ever get another penny or second. At least Vince McMahon is a bonafide con man.

    rmm.  

  7. of folks here are either going to vote republican, throw away their vote, or stay home.  No wonder progressives can’t get anything done.
