    The Democrat infighting is reaching epic levels in recent days, and Blue Dog Dems are being pushed from the party.

    Here is Democrat Congressman Bart Stupak's take...

    ___


    “Throughout this debate, even when the House leaders have acknowledged us, it’s always been in a backhanded way,” he laments. “I’m telling the others to hold firm, and we’ll meet next week, but I’m disappointed in my colleagues who said they’d be with us and now they’re not. It’s almost like some right-to-life members don’t want to be bothered. They just want this over.”

    And the politics of the issue are pretty rough. “This has really reached an unhealthy stage,” Stupak says. “People are threatening ethics complaints on me. On the left, they’re really stepping it up. Every day, from Rachel Maddow to the Daily Kos, it keeps coming. Does it bother me? Sure. Does it change my position? No

    Nancy Pelosi's big tent extends from Bolsheviks all the way out to Neo-Marxists and Fascists.

    The more they push this at us the more votes they will lose. So keep on pushing, the people are getting an education.

    Indeed.

    The extremism and utter arrogance from within the Democrat Party leadership has proven stunning.

    How many billions are being promised to obtain votes - billions taken from the taxpayer funded "stimulus" slush fund?

    Even Tip O'Neil would be sickened by this display...

    So everybody's just ignoring the recent "cleansing" of the GOP that just took place where tea partiers were attacking GOP politicians that weren't "conservative enough". This is political party base time... primary time. It happens every election cycle, it's how American politics works. Sometimes the parties move to the middle like the GOP had to do in 2008 (but didn't do to well at) and sometimes the parties have to move to their base. Damn you people have to turn shit that happens EVERY four years into an f-ing soviet conspiracy theory. STFU already Jesus Christ.

    Good riddance. Stupak is a nutjob. Let him run as a Con next time.
    He was paying $600. a month rent, including maid service, in a townhouse in DC, and refuses to come clean about it.
