    How can I defend this Democratic party? What is it, really? Is it secretly as corporate-friendly as it appears?

    She couldn't make it past the second sentence without lying...

    (anonymous) agitated american (most likely a stealthy dailykos staffer)"Our county Democrats are preparing to promote the party to the county with a populist message, despite being so outnumbered."


    She's dead right on TPP and Obama's ulterior motives in trying to push it.

    I've been aware for years that the true party lines are not drawn where people assume. Democrats are almost as bad as the Republicans in their alliance with Corporate America. There are some exceptions, however, with Bernie Sanders being the biggest.

    I would like to know where the lie is in the OP's second sentence.

    Democrats/Progressives/Socialists = 32% of voters
    Republicans/Conservatives = 26% of voters
    Moderates & Independents = 42% of voters

    Before you seize on minutiae, Phyllisflex, the anonymous author/dailykos staffer wasn't talking about Moderates/Independents anywhere in the article so don't try to inject them into this like she was.

    southbeach1500 saidIt's clearly Bush's fault!


    It's all part of the racist elitist Bush/Cheney conspiracy with 9-11.

    Ask Hillary.
