One thing you said this weekend that I've been thinking about...
"Rush does a disservice when he says Dems want America to fail because they love America but just don't get/understand how things really work."
I paraphrase but you get my meaning.
I agree that what you say is true about the Dem base...the voters. I'm not sure I agree about the the big guns in the Party. I'm not ready to let them off the hook. A writer at Townhall last week said that he'd talked to a Repub ME senator until he was blue in the face about tax cuts but she couldn't change her position because of a segment of her electorate.
She chooses to take her stance because of her base in spite of the facts.
If Rush refers to Leadership, I'll agree because they know, or should know, better.
