10. we should work with moderate Republicans on immigration reform

 

we should work with moderate Republicans on tax reform. We can easily work with Republicans on a host of issues if there were a critical mass of moderates on both sides encouraging such cooperation.

No, instead I'm being screamed at that moderation means equivocating in the face of racism or attacks on homosexuals or women. Uh, no. Moderation doesn't mean giving in. It means not being an extremist "I'll take my ball and go home if I don't get 100% of what I want."

Oh, and using a word like fetishist to describe political moderates? Yeah, pretty incendiary and not helpful to any political discourse. If people with your attitude started to hold sway over Democrats, it would be the snake eating its tail syndrome similar to what Republians and extremists in Tea Party are putting themselves through.
