  •  Democrats are *not* increasingly liberal. At all. (1+ / 0-)

    Obama is clearly several steps to the right of where Richard Nixon was in 1972. What passes for liberal in the Democratic caucus today would be unremarkable centrist two decades ago.

    It's the lunatic Republican party, starting with the Reagan takeover from previous sensible centrists and accelerating under the control of the malignant Newt Gingrich (for whom no tactics were too slimy, no slander too low), that is responsible for what's wrong with U.S. politics and governance.

    It's hard for Congress to reach agreement because the Republican caucus is populated by incorrigible lunatics who have absolutely no comprehension of the mechanics of representative government, or how compromise works. They can't govern because they don't know how. For evidence I offer every single act of the Bush/Cheney administration.
