    "Absolute Failure": DNC Passes Perez Resolution Reversing Ban on Donations From Fossil Fuel PACs

    Just two months after the Democratic National Committee (DNC) wascelebratedby environmentalists for banning donations from fossil fuel companies, itvoted 30-2on Friday to adopt aresolutionfrom Chair Tom Perez that critics said effectively reverses the ban and represents “an absolute failure by the DNC.”
    When Democrats take the House this fall (and there is no doubt they will), the American people can sing once again "Meet the new boss, same as the old boss".

    This is yet another proof that at least ONE third party actually competing for power is desperately needed.

    This is an example of the good being the enemy of the perfect. In a perfect world, the DNC can tell potential donors to take a hike. In the real world it takes money to run campaigns. In this world the Democrats have a far better environmental record than the Republicans.

    Are some Democrats for fracking? Yes. It does keep natural gas prices down. I don't see taking fossil fuel companies money as a betrayal. I see bowing to lobbyists, regardless of industry, as a corruption of the public trust but until we get rid of the requirement of large amounts of money for campaigns, this is what we have.

    The mental gymnastics in this thread will be fun to watch.
