    So which one do you assign yourself too? A or B?

    Or maybe he is a slave to the elites in government and is just selling out for power (to keep his position).

    When it comes to politics there are only two answers.

    A) People can take care of themselves and live via a small local or state government.

    B) People need federal government or federal government intervention to live and dictate outcomes.

    If you subscribe to A) you're not a progressive.

    If you subscribe to B) you are a progressive.

    When nothing has an answer, then everything is possible including, and most likely corruption.

    3. If you didn't notice... It's country club republicans wringing their hands.

    4. Reagan would have made it today... why? Because he could articulate Conservatism so even Demokrats could understand it. Reagan was a pragmatist who got almost everything he wanted because he was a master negotiator. I like that kind of pragmatism... putting the opposition on their knees. You should learn his history.

    5. We don't need to be pragmatic and concede to Demokrats on their failed ideas. We need to take them down... roll back the absurdity that has all but destroyed a great country. Just wait if we lose status of being the world's currency... it won't be pretty. The result of failed Socialist policies pushed by the drug dealing Demokrats.

    Ignorance is a valuable tool for Demokrats... that and ignoring the Constitution... the two go hand in hand. Add a compliant press corps(e) and you've got a weapon of mass destruction... as Demokrats have proven.
    Wow! Obviously a little more skooling would have helped you.... I think its spelt 'democrats.'

    Your romantic, not particularly accurate understanding of Reagan is cute.

    ... and given that the Cons have a moving definition of socialism that makes for a good game of wack-a-mole. For example, they want to tell you Obama is a socialist, but his policies remain well to the right of the politics of all of Europe and Canada, and that all of Western Europe and Canada have socialized medicine, higher taxes and much more robust social programs than the US, yet are not failing, but doing exceptionally well and in some cases better than the US... calling socialism an abysmal failure is.... what was the word you used? Ignorance? Yes, that is what that is.

    The rest of your post: not worthy comment.

    I believe you should change your "Lean" to Hard Left... Demokrat.

    Obama's policies aren't right of Central Europe. His home in Europe is with the far and moronic left... you spend/waste 6 trillion in 4-years... you're among the loony left. You tell businesses to make payroll by taking bank loans... you're a business illiterate. You claim you'll put coal power stations out of business, you're a nut case leftist... and with Obama there are endless examples of his leftist idiocy.

    Obama told Merkel they should spend more, she told him to stuff it. And Merkel... though center right, would be an old school D... which there are none anymore. America's D party is a bunch of far left radikals.

    And Reagan... you obviously have zero idea of the man. He took on the country club Republicans during the era where the leftist idiocy was in vogue. He would have made it today espousing his beliefs... Why? Because he was right, and he didn't water down the message, and wouldn't water down his attack on our Amerikan Evil Empire.
