    Well the American revolution was also different in nature then a hypothetical modern one.

    There's a good argument that the American Revolution wasn't even a revolution. It was just the people who ran the place realizing that they didn't have to pay rent to the old landlord anymore.

    Pretty much. There's a substantial difference between gaining independence and replacing an existing government.

    Especially when you have major outside help.

    Hey look, it's a very quiet pretty major Obama accomplishment. Yet another thing that would not happen under Republicans!

    Herbert Hoover got 40% of the vote in 1932. Friendly reminder.

    Good God, can we stop with the "Obama's really a conservative!" tripe?

    He got the legislation passed that could realistically get passed given the BS in the Senate. He works quietly in the background and got done what could be done on health care. There are a whole host of other liberal things that have been accomplished. You really think conservatives would have passed the Ledbetter Equal Pay Act?

    The reason Dems come to the table with a compromise is that they have worked out what they can pass with their own members. The dem caucus is much less rigid and conforming than the GOP caucus.

    Well, on the world stage, Obama is a conservative, or charitably, centre-right.

    The Republicans are far Right, to an overwhelming degree. The American political climate is just super crazy.

    Tide goes in. Tide goes out.
