    The Republican Party's new "Pledge to America," already battered by liberals, is now facing criticism from an unlikely source — some conservatives

    Other conservative bloggers called it "milquetoast" and "smoke and mirrors."


    The plan also pledges to honor "traditional marriage" and faith-based organizations.

    If all else fails, attack the gays. The old Republican stand by.

    You can read it here. Add another trillion to the deficit giving millionaires and billionaires tax cuts. Do nothing about jobs going overseas. It's the same old story. Nothing new. America will put these people in office. You watch.

    After November, the Republican base will crow, "We Won!"

    Then what?

    And don't forget, they want to privatize SS, the VA and Medicare. Wonder how that will play. Wall Street needs some more money to play with. They don't have enough. Buying politicians is expensive.

    We already know how the private VA worked out. Wounded troops living in quarters of filth. Remember Bush investigated that.

    When are you going to realize there is no such thing as a fiscally responsible politician?

    I've given up on voting.

    repugnantcans and dimocrats are exactly the same so why bother.

    I'll work to see a third party but I won't vote in any elctoral race that only has a choice (non choice) between repugnantcans or dimocrats.

    They are NOT the same. The Republican party is 90% white and mostly Christian. They vote in lockstep.

    Democrats are basically everyone else. Truly a party of coalitions. This is why Democrats have a difficult time getting their "agenda" passed. Because first, they have to agree on an agenda. Then they have to work to get the votes for it.

    Republicans do what they are told and believe anything, no matter how far fetched or strange.

    There is an enormous difference between these two parties.
