    Excerpt:
    When will Democrats ever learn that giving in to bullies never works - never - not in a million election cycles. As every schoolyard victim knows all too well, when you give in to a bully he or she will just keep coming back, continually upping the ante - until, finally, after much misery, the victim is left with no choice but to either accept the pain and humiliation indefinitely or to finally fight back.
    Bullying, of course, has been the right wing's political weapon of choice for well over a decade, but rarely has it been more starkly on display than in the last few weeks. The town hall bullies, backed up by both corporate
    special interests and the right wing noise machine, have been making quite a splash. Recent polling suggests that their lies, as transparently foolish as they seem to those of us on the left, may actually be carrying the day.

    they don't learn. they r too nice.

    they keep believing logic will work against fear, bigotry and ignorance.

    it never works.

    they need to fight fire with fire.

    [SIZE=+1]Why Blue Dogs fight Obama [/SIZE]

    Link Excerpt:
    The seven Blue Dog Democrats holding up health care reform legislation in the House Energy and Commerce Committee have received tens of thousands more dollars from insurance weasels than other Democrats on the committee, a new report finds. An analysis by the Public Campaign Action Fund finds a fairly strong correlation between private industry donations and opposition to health care reform. Lawmakers in both the House and Senate who voted against proposed legislation this congressional cycle, the report found, received roughly 65 percent more money from health and insurance interests than those who supported the bills. The back-stabbing Blue Dogs are Reps. Mike Ross (Ark.), Baron Hill (Ind.), Charlie Melancon (La.), Jim Matheson (Utah), John Barrow (Ga.), Bart Gordon (Tenn.) and Zach Space (Ohio).

    Facts definitely have Liberal bias.

    You don't always need to fight back against the Republicans. They can't stop lying. Eventually, the facts catch up and there they are, once again covered in mud.

    Remember, Republicans are like pigs. They drag you down into the mud and roll around and get dirty, but the pig "likes" it.

    Everything they have touched for the last eight years has turned to "mud". Whether it's the economy or made up war or the incompetence of Katrina.

    They let Bin Laden go. They invaded the wrong country. They ruined the economy. Hey, they had BOTH HOUSES and the Presidency. If they wanted to fix health care, they would have. Instead, they turned it into "wealth care" and they don't want to see all that hard work go to waste.

    Look at Texas. Now it's mandatory to teach Bible Studies in public schools. Look at that 8 day health clinic in LA. Republicans hate that kind of stuff. How many were there helping out? Instead, they were at town halls screaming "Don't touch my health care". When the ones screaming outside were asked if they had health care, many said "no". But if they did, they don't want the government to touch it. Go figure.

    Somehow, the rich, elite Republicans have convinced those worse off to defend them. Even though they hurt their followers, they still get them to defend policies that would hurt them even more.

    You know that the Republican base believe the Christians living in Iraq now have a better life. They don't even know that the Christian religion that had been there two thousand years is nearly wiped out by the very people we "liberated". The people that throw shoes at our president. Good one. Job well done.

    I don't know what they were trying to do, but whatever it was, it worked.

    This is typical liberal spin and bullshit.

    Libs have been on the attack since the 2000 election. You now have the Senate, Congress, POTUS and the media and still you pussies can't stop whining.

    My God you're embarrASSing.

    I agree with you - fight like your ememy fights.
    First the Dems need to purge those in their own party that work against the interests of the party ... the Republicans are a very united party.
