Yeah, yeah, I know. I’ll give you a minute to unbunch your undies.
But with the sliding scale of Liberalism turning into the proverbial slippery slope….and the polls as they are….
Think about it….if the Repubs win the House, what will the reaction of the Congressional Dems be?
The same reaction they have upon waking up each morning….to move to the Right.
So as un-Liberal as Obama obviously is…and….
So other than a few ‘nuts’ like Kucinich…(who do such nutty stuff as suggesting we change things that are obviously NOT working)
Who would be more Liberal than, lol, Obama?
Not Reid, hell not anyone in the Senate, since Feingold, like the rest of us, have pretty much given up on rolling back the death of the Constitution. Maybe Franken?
We do have a few stalwarts in the House, in the Progressive Caucus. But of course the HIR fight showed just how tough and effective they are. They gave up their voice, their effectiveness and their power when they caved on the Public Option Holdout…and it is doubtful they will get it back.
So that leaves, LOL, Nancy “off the table” Pelosi and a few stalwarts….surrounded by people who have to start campaigning again right after this campaign ends….who will undoubtedly take the lesson of losing the House as telling them that they too have to move to the Right to win.
Times are tough when a guy who actively rejects the Liberal label is the, or at least one of the, most Liberal figures in government.
Let’s Hope the nihilists are right….I guess….and that if things DO get bad enough, The People will start to get radicalized.
Because despite the fact the “The Republicans will be worse” meme is a fear tactic talking point of the Obamacrats…it is also correct. And maybe that IS what it will take to break us out of the path we are on now. “Allowing” the Repubs to destroy what little Liberalism there is left in the government of the good old USA and intimidate the spineless Dems even further down the path to the Right. A path that makes lemmings look like fucking geniuses.
The current Republicans are perhaps the most hated political party in the history of the US. And this batch of democrats apparently can’t even summon enough substance or guts to beat these hated, lying, idiot, corrupt, torturers.
We need a miracle.
Either an immediate miracle of the Dems actually DOING something to turn this election around…or a long term miracle of a vast awakening by the American People, spurred by the Repubs gaining power, shutting down government and impeaching Obama, that will cause them to stir from slumber.
A slumber that…and this is just an amazingly absurd indictment of America as a whole, actually moves them to put Republicans back into any kind of power, just two short years after Bush.
Truly Amazing. Just how bad do you have to screw the pooch to have THAT happen? THAT is just exactly how pathetic these Dems are. They are actually going to LOSE to THESE Republicans.
Which, sigh, will just move the Dems….you guessed it…..even further to the Right. Making Obama look like, ONLY BY COMPARISON, some sort of flaming Liberal, even as he tries to prop up and save The Crumbling American Empire.
Wow, I am just flabbergasted at the thought.
What the hell do we do now?
