Response to YoungDemCA (Original post)

25. There are plenty of issues the party has moved Leftward on.

We have the party endorsing gay rights and Obama being the 1st incumbent president in history to do so, they've endorsed paycheck fairness for men and women, supported a bi-racial man as their party's nominee in 2008 for the 1st time, Obama has accomplished what past Democratic presidents have attempted in health care reform, Democrats have supported raising top tax rates, Obama appointed the Supreme Court's first Latina justice, Democrats have supported stronger environmental laws, plus there are even some in the party who support marijuana legalization.

To people on here who claim that the party is moving to the Right, it's not so much the case that it is moving Rightward--it's that the GOP continues to move Rightward and has become increasingly unwilling to cooperate in Congress. Congress Republicans are to blame for our problems, not moderate or Blue Dog Democrats. Even those type of Democrats vote with us at least 70% of the time.
