Huh? Who are the progressives if not Bammy, Nancy and Harry. I hadn’t noticed that any of these idiots had compromised on anything.

Delusional. This is the most aggressively arrogant, self-centered, and selfish administration and Congress I’ve ever seen. Also the most incompetent. Dangerous combination.

“Progressive” is a matter of opinion, depending upon your definition of progress. If we say that liberals are progressives, we admit that their ideas cause progress. However, liberal ideas harm our country.

Progressives criticize White House, Democrats

Is that anything like the pot calling the kettle black?

Who can keep up with all this mostly left-wing usage of phony terminology to identify themselves? At the end of the day aren't they basically atheist socialists?

I guess Obama had just one too many “Republican ONLY” meetings with the Democrats shut-out during health care bill discussions. /sarcasm

Just like they “compromised” on ObamaCare, right?

Just like they “compromised” on Kagan’s nomination, right?

Just like they “compromised” on “Don’t ask, don’t tell”, right?

They see Bambi as being too cozy with corporations. (Recipient of largest contribution from BP, for example, which could explain his slow response to the spill...they’re mad about that).

These progressives need to form a third party and split the socialist vote. That’s a third party we can believe in!

Another ‘disinformation’ campaign.
Just like saying the Republicans are obstructionists with a Dem super majority.
How stupid is the American public?

(a purely rhetorical question, Look who’s in the White House)
