O'Bama and O'Malley (two good strong Irish names) are better described as Leftist rather than Liberal. Leftism takes the worst parts of liberalism, like tax and spend policies, over-regulation, and expansion of the nanny-state and combines it with restrictive social measures like warrantless monitering and searches of Americans (thanks Patriot Act) the assassination of US citizens, and enforcing the War on Drugs. It is really the worst of both worlds.

The GOP take over of the House was the best thing that could have happened to America because it brought stalemate. The government that governs least, governs best. I tip my glass to divided government, may there never be a time when the Dems or the GOP have control of all three branches of government. The results would be the same, wild spending, policies forced down American's throats, and expansion of Federal power.

FDR, LBJ, Truman... The world is a totally different place now. Bringing them up in current politics is like trying to have Alexander Graham bell run Apple.

Obama care will be the hardest thing that's ever happened to employers, which is the biggest thing this country needs more of, and O'malley continues to tax small businesses and everyday people so illegal aliens can get in state tuition.... A tuition that keeps going up because he can't stop over governing. And Virginia is cashing in big time!

Can't wait till o'malley runs for pres, Herman Cain will enjoy how many infidelity scandals emerge.

War on drugs: Started by (GOP) Nixon 40 years ago. Completely ineffective.

And I really think you should check out some of the European leaders if you think Obama is so far left. The guy is in the middle.

Compared to most of Europe, Noam Chomsky is a moderate

And yeah, the GOP did start the War on Drugs and the Patriot Act. At best, I would hope the "liberals" would work to fix those things, but to no avail. I am sure you have noticed that the Federal Government never relenquishes power once they have obtained it, regardless of party, ideology, or promises. Didn't President Obama promise to close Gitmo?

Not these "liberals." Not far left enough. LINO? Is that a word?

It is now!

I have used the acronym DINO before, although I admit that Blue Dog sounds cooler.

Plus Dino to me makes me think of Dean Martin, who was actually pretty dang cool.

Blue Dog does have a nice sound to it but I always think of George Rodrigue's popular paintings:
