"Say it Ain't So"
There is a whole contingency here on DU, Dem. Underground, that are caught up in the details, that they fail to see how truly far we have fallen as a party.
Either people have a very short memory or they are not old enough to remember how the Democratic Party used to be.
Frankly, it's down right comical what the Democratic party has turned into.
If one were to compare and contrast the party of Carter to the party of Obama, it would be terrifying.
What we have now is a centrist right leaning Dem pres. Anyone who tries to reinterpret that is just not paying attention.
If we actually had a real party for the people, an FDR type party, people today would freak out. They honestly wouldn't know what to do with all of their rights as a person and as a worker.
But alas, we are now controlled by the corporations. Each and everyday we have to make yet a new allowance for our degrading lives.
I'm tired of calling a shit sandwich; steak.

Btw speaking of "Shit sandwiches" Just this evening I heard a new automated announcement on the subway.
Basically it went, "...it is a crime to panhandle, (beg), on all trains, and stations."
"Please do not give."
"Help us maintain an orderly system,...thank you."
