Bad Democrats

Here's where we slam Democrats who talk the talk about standing up to George Bush, then vote with Republicans anyway. You expect perpetual Bush-o-crats like Joe Lieberman, Chuck Schumer, and Landrieu to be indistinguishable from Republicans, but joning them in selling us out now are Obama, Reid, and Dodd.

CAFTA: So Where's the Party Discipline?

If this many Republicans had crossed Bush on a vote this big the way these Democrats sold-out the American worker, there'd be a few Repubs sitting in basement offices suddenly. But apparantly screwing the worker is no big deal. If you think wages are low in China, wait till Big Business gets to take jobs where people living in a cardboard box are considered the lucky ones; Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras. Run for Congress!

So far a list of Democratic senators who have voted with Republicans on such Bush administration triumphs as drilling in the Arctic Wildlife Refuge, tort reform, and bankruptcy includes: Bayh (D-IN), Bennett (R-UT), Biden (D-DE), Bingaman (D-NM), Cantwell (D-WA), Carper (D-DE), Conrad (D-ND), Dodd (D-CT), Feinstein (D-CA), Inouye (D-HI), Johnson (D-SD), Kohl (D-WI), Landrieu (D-LA), Lieberman (D-CT), Lincoln (D-AR), Nelson (D-NE), Obama (D-IL), Reed (D-RI), Reid (D-NV), Rockefeller (D-WV), Salazar (D-CO), and Schumer (D-NY).

Read your "American Dream" swiftly yesterday. Much was very well put. On target sarcasm. But the ending, a little too supportive of the current mentality. Current mentality deserves no support...only replacement!
