    Democrats' Civil War: The Fight Within the Party - The Daily Beast

    Yes, the GOP is certainly seeing grand divides among its ranks, with Tea Party supporters pulling in different directions, but now the liberal wing of the Democrats are beginning to show intolerance for the centrist direction of this administration....????? HUH?

    obama is quite centrist. the left wanted single payer, he settled for a muddled private/public insurance deal. the left wanted gitmo closed, patrito act repealed, and iraq war ended pronto. none of that happened. left wanted prosecution of bush/cheney. that didn't even come close to happening. there are tons more examples, but Obama is quite centrist, he just looks far left after having GW around for 8 years.

    Man if this administration went any further left it would bring those in the right up in arms. Why can't these people be happy they have everything they wanted. Needless to say it is just for a short term though. After the 2010 election it will be the start of repealibng the mess created by obama and company.

    I've been seeing this for a while. We have 1-party rule in America, yet Obama continues to blame the Republicans for blocking anything he's for. It's :cuckoo:.

    Obama a "Centrist" ??

    Those Dems are definitely not reading this board.

    Yes, Obama has made concessions to the right. Dropping the public option from healthcare, keeping Gitmo open, increasing drone attacks, increasing the troops in Afghanistan, agreeing to more offshore drilling

    I think when the "rubber meets the road" Democrats, even Liberals, will realize that unless that accept the Dem candidates they will end up with people like Angle and Rand Paul. It should be obvious, just as obvious as the Tea Party should see the disadvantages of splitting the GOP vote in November.

    But the Obvious is not so Obvious...obviously.

    Failing to get enough votes from DEMOCRATS is hardly a concession.

    As though lying and war mongering are exclusive traits of the right.

    With full knowledge that it is states which stand in the way of most offshore drilling, and when there's plenty of oil to be found ONshore.

    Like I said...This "centrist" crap is comedy gold coin! :lol::lol::lol:
