    Is it time for a Tea-Party-esque split from the Democratic Party?

    Democrats suffered massive losses during this election, but all I could say was..."Ehhh". They offered "Change", but delivered nothing much. The Administration went against "us" on DADT. And, they completely squandered their majority, while they had it.

    Thoughts?

    I think that is a very valid proposition. It might just leave 'middle-of-the-road' Dems and Repubs to govern without alienating those who voted for yet another "Change" yesterday.

    Go for it.

    But what will they be called? I'd suggest "The Paris Commune Party."

    Think about all of the "change" that could have happened if the Republicans wouldn't have said NO most of the time. You really can't blame this on Obama. People expect miracles overnight. Had the Democrats only publicized this job growth chart, constantly, in TV advertisements, the election outcome would have been different. I mean look at this. Why on God's green earth didn't they plug accomplishments in TV ads. That's their fault!

    Creating a faction party to get people riled up and afraid worked for the Republicans, maybe the Democrats should give it a shot.

    Let's face it, Democratic leaders have the brains, Republican leaders have the balls. Anyway we can combine the two?

    I think we were stabbed in the back by Rahm Emmanuel. I expect that it was his fucked up advice that got Obama to play it all the way he did. When it became apparent to O and everybody else that it was all going to go down in flames, he split for Chicago.

    Exactly. Rahm was still acting like it was 1993. Asshole.




    It was kind of curious that Rahm Emanuel and most of Obama's economic advisers sneaked out the back door all of a sudden.

    I think that it is time to evict both the democrats and the republicans from all levels of American government. The politicians from both two parties are just out for their own self aggrandizement. It is time for a change all right, it is time to try the alternative political parties and see how they would work.

    jprichva, Milwaukee had several Socialist mayors during the middle 1900s and it was a very safe, clean, and progressive city. The demoquacks took over city government during the 1960s and 1970s and Milwaukee began taking a nosedive similar to most other older northern American cities.
