The Democratic Party does have ideas!

I am pretty sick and tired of hearing people say, “Democrats don’t have any ideas! They don’t have any plans for how to make things better. All they can do is bash Republicans.” This is patently false; the Democratic Party has a Six-Point plan for 2006: The Democratic Party is committed to keeping our nation… Read More »

Just look at the way so many Democrats caved in the run up to the war,” Clooney said Monday in a… Read More »
