Elizabeth Warren would be the greatest President since Roosevelt, and maybe better. I just don't know if she could win. I mean, everyone knows, the American people are pretty darn stupid. It might be a bit too much for them.
@OldBob Actually, it's Bill Krystol's father, who laid it out explicitly -- slander government, make it dysfunctional, demonize Democrats as traitors and degenerates, and when the day comes that the GOP gets the power it needs, to reach for that holy of holy grails -- the destruction, once and for all, of Social Security. I'm not kidding.

@TomPiper I'm scared to be optimistic. I'm afraid I'll be like Charlie Brown, when the evil Lucy invites him to kick a football, then snatches it away at the last moment so he falls on his ass.
If only it was a corpse, the GOP. But it's like the Mafia. Or maybe gonorrhea. It always comes back, and as long as there are horrible, repulsive antisocial people in the world, who hate humanity, there will always be a Republican Party, or something just like it to take its place.
@Jack Nextdoor @johnmkelly1 @IntelligenceisAVirtue @Sinixstar You can't reason with these people. Total waste of time. They hate the world and everyone in it. And their vision is like looking through a straw. Just talking with them is demeaning.

@Jack Nextdoor They act like they've got dementia, like old time end stage syphlitics, before antibiotics. Awful. Paranoid and hateful. Discussion with them is pointless.
@Jack Nextdoor I truly didn't appreciate how vile they are until now. I'd seen them on television, but I didn't know until I communicated with them here on this board. They make me feel like I need a shower. Hateful, strident and just plain vile.
@first last @vickee @seattleeng Oh, my God, Tea Baggers truly are unteachable.
I'm not going to argue with you. You're a vicious old idealogue and you're on your way out, with the rest of your awful demographic. In other words, we'll be glad when you're gone, you rascal you.
Then the rest of us are going to be blinking in a kind of shell shock, looking at one another saying, "Where the hell did those goddamn people come from." And good riddance too.
@Yourmamatoo Nobody complained about TARP until a Democrat was in office. And as far as immigration, yeah, well, everyone knows you're talking about the White Nationalist wing of the GOP, that hates people of color. So why state the obvious? It was your President, W., and if you had any honesty or guts, you'd own up to it.
@ericg771 @vickee @seattleeng Here here.
Yeah, the last time the GOP threatened to tank the economy, the price was keeping the Bush tax cuts intact.
Stop listening to GOP propaganda -- it's like a dog eating its own feces. It's why Romney and the Repugs thought they were going to win last year. It's awful. You're awful.
@johnmkelly1 @Kirien @vickee Yeah, well, that's how insurance works, and will bring America into the modern age, where we don't have to pay three times as much for health care as the rest of the world, with 50 million uninsured, 100 million under insured and come in 24th as far as outcomes at the doctor's office.
Gee, it would be great if you didn't combine an inability to do simple arithmetic with a mean spirit, but that's just who you people are, I guess.
@Yourmamatoo Nothing TSRVT said pertained to issues of cowardice or valor. It was simply pointing out that you people are mean spirited and very dumb, which most assuredly represents a retrograde form of humanity.
@Sinixstar @ddpablo @vickee These Right Wingers scream about how Christian they are, which I guess they have to, to delude themselves about who and what they really worship - Ayn Rand -- completely. And there's nothing Christian about Ayn Rand.
@vickee @ddpablo You're welcome to feel any way you want about abortion, and to make your opinions known, as long as you recognize that it's nobody's personal business except the person considering whether to have one or not. That's the American way.
@ChristopherRogerPutnam @vickee @dtorney Nothing is wrong. It's a wonderful idea, but I would prefer a stuffed head in a rural diner somewhere
@vickee @smjhunt @Kirien Are you aware that your Republicans racked up 16 trillion in debt with unfunded drug program, Iraq War and tax breaks for billionaires? Do you remember? Do you? Do you think we're going to put this on the backs of regular people, because of this party you insist is so good for America? No, we are not going to take food from the mouths of children, we are not going to let you get away with keeping the minimum wage stagnant for 40 years, so we have to issue food stamps so Americans don't die in the street, yes, we are going to institute Universal Health Care like other civilized countries and yes, we are not giving you irresponsible crazy people the keys ever again.
@johnmkelly1 @mwbright @first last @Laurel Kaskurs DeFalcoNobody folded on the Democrats' side. What are you talking about, sitting their grinning like a chimpanzee?

@johnmkelly1 @LindaReynolds @NykHolt Oh, you people, whose definition of freedom is the right to suppress people you don't like. Well, too bad. Tens of millions of Americans are going to be able to get health care now, and nobody on our side cares what you think. Just go away already.
