      that means something.

      We all have to stop the emoprog/Obamabot bullshit - it's a waste of everybody's time.

      We have to give each room to fight the battles we can, not the battles we want each other to fight.

      The only exception I make for this is anyone who is seriously talking about a primary challenge or working towards a third party (which is fine down the line, but not right now).

      A primary challenge won't move Obama to the left, because he's already moving left. The White House is a hell of a lot more concerned about losing the general election than losing a primary fight.

        We're so used to having the ol' Democratic Party Circular Firing Squad that we slip back into old habits.

        As one of the respondents, I want to thank you so much for taking our voices to Washington to be heard. I got more involved with the Obama campaign than I ever have in a political campaign before, and it hurt me on an emotional level that after the election was won, my voice seemed to get lost (I'd say it was somewhere around the two-year-old level, because I know I certainly didn't merit or deserve any special listening...but there wasn't even a comment form I could shove my frustrations into a black hole over).

        I'm glad they've shown they can hear us. Now we have to drag them where we want them to go.

        How does the Republican Congress sit down with all the butthurt over taxing the wealthy?
