      and much more convenient to say that it is all the GOPs fault and that the Democrats in DC always act with our best interests at heart.

      •  about the same level of difficulty, I would say (1+ / 0-)

        the reality is that the Democrats (like the Republicans) represent a broad swath of the political spectrum and have divergent views on many issues.  Given the leanings of many on this site it's obvious that centrists and conservative Dems would come in for plenty of ire.

        But the issue with the sequester isn't about progressive vs. conservative.  It's not corporatist vs. populist.

        It's healthy, functioning government vs. neo-anarchic obstructionism.  And on that subject there's not much daylight between Reid & Obama and the opinion-makers on this site.
