  •  because we have a progressive agenda (0+ / 0-)

    Right?

    •  I would hope so (0+ / 0-)

      but when one speaks of 'daily kos kool aid' I have to  rather wonder what the agenda is

      I mean if for example I started saying that I know I would get massive amounts of hides for that and several people would be calling for me to be banned (though to be fair they would be more repeating themselves)

      I don't think it unreasonable to be perplexed by such a comment

        I've been here a lot longer than you, so if you don't like my comments, why do you come here?

        What we need is a Democrat in the White House.

        1. the poster has a progressive agenda

        2. the Demoocratic Party does not, and hasn't since the 70's, so

        3. the poster points out all the ways in which the Dem party does not have a progressive agenda, so that

        4. people will see that, and then

        5. work to make the Dem Party progressive again, either by changing the candidate's mind or by electing a different candidate.

        Some people here, alas, have a different agenda.  It goes:

        1. elect anyone with a D after their name.

        2. if the person elected is crappy and non-progressive, wave a blue pennant and refer to number one.

        "More AND better Democrats" is fine, so long as the Dems we elect are actually better.  When they're not (as happens quite often) then those two aims are in conflict, and we get the never-ending pie fights that you somehow always find yourself involved with.

        •  yeah that would be nice (0+ / 0-)

          if that was true but I rather doubt it for that poster

          More like

          Bad mouth anything Obama does nevermind the facts or actual truth.

          •  I think you are quite mistaken (0+ / 0-)

            But I do understand that you have a different agenda.

            PS--Obama is not the problem, and never has been.  The problem is that the Dem Party is not progressive and hasn't been since the 70's.  So it simply doesn't matter who is President--the party is not on the side of progressives anyway. If we dug up the zombie corpse of FDR and elected it to office, it wouldn't change a thing.

            •  not about agenda at all (0+ / 0-)

              when a commenter talks about 'daily kos kool aid' I think that speaks more then enough to the commenter's intentions

              And frankly if you or dkmich think the party isn't progressive enough (and that really is a separate discussion) the way to fix that isn't by comments like that one

              You have a good day as I don't see this discussion being any more productive.
