5. The (D)edicated (L)eague of (C)onservatives
Edited on Sat Apr-25-09 08:18 PM by Dragonfli
Insistence on supporting and replicating republican policies makes them just as dangerous to our country as the republican rein has been these past eight years.

The fact that they are pro-corporate anti-labor republicans in drag is seldom even hidden and not lost on those of us that support the FDR style Democratic policies we need if we are to repair this country.

I believe they had very little to do with the victories achieved in the last few elections.
The victories were largely the result of a coalition of grass-roots canvassers, Howard Deans DNC, union activists, anti-war activists and a long overdue awakening of the people to the failures of the very policies that the DLC support.

It takes some balls for the republicans masquerading as Democrats to take credit and assume power over this.
This is of course exactly what I expected of them.

They are going to give it back to the republicans again if they keep blocking labor and supporting republicans at which time of course they will blame the liberals they fought for those failures.
