    He's a Blue Dog. When Republicans say, "B b b b but Democrats have ALL the power", this is the kind of guy we are talking about. The Democrats are a coalition, not monolithic - like the Republicans.

    What's worse, this guy says Britain, Germany, France and Japan don't have government run health care when clearly they all do.

    Just the fact that he is loose with the facts, clearly, makes him a Republican in Democratic clothing.

    Facts have always had a liberal bias. That just goes without saying.

    I never could understand the Republican complaint about "spreading the wealth". Under Bush and the Republicans, with the tax breaks for the rich, all the tens of billions of dollars on no bid contracts for big companies in Iraq, the no bid contracts after Katrina, the energy policy that led to the biggest profits in the history of the world, after all that enormous transfer of wealth from the middle class to the top 1%, Republicans start complaining when a tiny bit moves back.

    It's like the Republicans hate the middle class. They want the middle class destroyed. Even more odd, the country is built on the middle class, not the top 1%. I really think they are insane. What else could it be?
