What does rep Brian Baird (D-Wash) think?

This is interesting indeed

"It's been an authoritarian, closed leadership. That style plus a general groupthink mentality didn't work when Tom DeLay called the shots," Mr. Baird says. "We've made some of the same damn mistakes, and we were supposed to be better. That's the heartbreak."

  •  The day I start listening to a politician tell me how to think is the day I stop voting and just let them appoint themselves


    So, how do you do this exactly, sweet, and be the entire cheering section, marching band, choir, and amen section for the democratic party no matter what crap they put forth?

  • When President Obama was elected in 2008, Mr. Baird was again optimistic that Democrats could bring real reform. But fierce Republican partisanship and the White House decision not to focus on job creation as its "number one, two and three" priority dashed that hope

    That part makes sense. He sounds reasonable.

    But....yourspecial kid....he is getting out of politics...he will not be running...why would he "SING a song the people want to hear" ? He is just giving his opinion and it wouldn't get him votes anyway...you will see that IF you read it.
