    I find it difficult to believe that Democrats are that satisfied with the direction the countries moving in, the economy, unemployment, national debt, spandex government control health care and blah,blah, blah...

    That really isn't the point of my post. The point is, why do they support and justify what can't possibly be good for the country? We all saw this when Clinton was President, without going into specifics they rationalized the unjustifiable.

    Now it seems, Obama and the Democratic leadership are getting the same blind eyed treatment from both a great percentage of the media and Democrats in general.
    Does it just come down to hero worship, fear of failure, winning at any cost, beating the Republicans or is it true and honest belief, WHAT, it's a conundrum to me?...:eusa_think:

    Color me slow, but what specifically is your question, and what specifcally do you feel the Democrats and/or Obama are doing wrong?

    Democrats are interested in getting, maintaining, and extending power. This is what they are doing now. All the legislation passed will accomplish that goal. They are not interested in the good of the country. THey have forgotten what that means. It wasn't always so. I remember Muskey, Humphrey, Scoop Jackson, Moynihan and others. You might disagree with their policies but you could not question their integrity. The current crowd is totally different.
    Read the latest stuff from McGovern and he sounds like Reagan. Maybe the GOP ought to run McGovern for president in 2012.
    Plenty of people are still drinking the Obama Kool Aid that "this clean articulate black mean (what racist described him that way?) will solve all our problems."

    How?
    She is brighter and better organized and has better political instincts. But she reminds most people of their ex wife.

    I started a thread not so long ago that was "should people pass an IQ test in order to vote". Now, you can't really pass such a test, but you can be tested.

    Now if people based their opinion on voting on your first sentence (not necessary Hillary, but any politician), then they should vote. The whole reason I put the premise out there, is if people based their vote on your last sentence. Unfortunately, some people do...

    I think this president is still too wet behind the ears. Granted HRC didn't have much more official experience, but I am pretty sure that she would not have made the foreign policy gaff BHO made this week. I rank foreign policy as a high priority. I think she has a better grasp on reality as well.

    I suspect she would have been more like Bill, governing from the center and pushing coalitions with the republican traitors, er liberals.
    But in a contest with McCain I am not certain she would have won.
