Rank-and-file Democrats have no principles.

New poll confirms what I've always suspected.

The poll shows that 53 percent of self-identified liberal Democrats — and 67 percent of moderate or conservative Democrats — support keeping Guantanamo Bay open, even though it emerged as a symbol of the post-Sept. 11 national security policies of President George W. Bush, which many liberals bitterly opposed.

More here. And here.

Obama is a backstabbing piece of shit Wall Street whore, but he's infinitely better that Mitt Romney, the dog abuser.

I'm hoping Obama will have a safe lead in MN so I can vote for a third party candidate this year.

It's hard to see how Obama is better than Romney in any meaningful way. I'd probably enjoy going to a Bulls game with Obama more than I would with Romney. Obama would probably spring for a few beers. But aside from that, there's little discernible difference. They both would initiate oil-grabbing wars, declared and undeclared. They both would trample the Constitution. They both would nominate ideologues to the bench. But Obama doesn't wear magic underwear, so he's got that going for him, which is nice.

I wish you people were right about oil-grabbing wars. We could use more oil. Obviously America never got it.
