Look at the party.
Oh, I have. Believe me.
You have Dean declaring his pure hate for the other party.
I suppose you're referring to this quote: "I hate the Republicans and everything they stand for," which Dean apparently said a few days ago. I can't find that quote in any mainstream news source other than the NY Daily News, which is sort of like only being able to find it the Limbaugh Letter. It looks as if the NYDN picked that up and ran with it, and then NewsMax picked it up, then the freepers.
Like I said, trouble it, no one else seems to have reported it. At all. Google shows the lineage I just described. Google News
You have Kennedy declaring defeat in Iraq and advocating a course of action that will demoralize the troop, send Iraq into chaos and hand the terrorists a win.
So Kennedy, um, disagrees with Bush? And that's a problem for the party? Disagreeing with Bush? You beginning to get my point here?
Make you wonder which side Kennedy is on?
If you are suggesting that Kennedy is siding with the terrorists, it is your duty as an American citizen to report him to the FBI. I expect that since you're willing to float such ideas, you're either going to do that or have done it already.
If you haven't, it's just cheap rhetoric that deliberately makes light of all this, and, if this is the case, you ought to be ashamed of yourself.
The "progressives" are the reactionaries by refusing to consider reforming any of the failing social welfare programs.
Really? When you say "reform," I assume you mean "dismantle entirely." Imagine that the democrats not wanting the social programs to be dismantled. Again: the problem is that they disagree with Bush.
The party is more worried about the rights of terrorist than the people killed by them.
This is absurd. Please prove to me that the Democrats have institutionally said somewhere that they are no longer as interested in the rights of Americans as they are in the rights of terrorists.
And frankly, I'm proud of the democrats for asking questions about terrorists' rights. Our country has set up internment camps where people are being imprisoned without charges or access to a lawyer. Our gov't will not tell us how many people is has done this to. Our gov't will not tell us who these people are.
This ought to worry you, but apparently it doesn't, since you're fulminating about Ted Kennedy.
It's just a shame that the extreme elements of the party overshadow the common sense side.
Common sense about what? Disagreeing with Bush?
