Obama: Worried That Progressives Are Creating "Circular Firing Squad" With Purity Tests And "Rigidity"

She's not alone in her concerns.

Pelosi, Obama, Hillary, and many other Dems... all are in favor of FDR-ish policy, but they don't want to destroy their chances of getting steps in the right direction from the majority of voters by demanding end results immediately.

Think of the voters as your conservative old Grampa who might be willing to give you a car for your 18th birthday... as long as you don't demand a new Corvette. Take the used Pontiac and then werk your way up.

Or think of them as as the majority of workers who, I think it was Danforth that pointed out, are not particularly ready to give up pretty good company insurance for maybe not as good public insurance. Turn O-Care into a alternate program comparable to ins to that they already have, insure the ones left out, then offer it to everyone.... for example.

lmao... Dulli and Mattress, the white racist pairing made in Trump Heaven.

"Woods Tears Up Augusta and Tears Down Barriers
By LARRY DORMANAPRIL 14, 1997

It has been 50 years, almost to the day, since Jackie Robinson broke down the racial barriers in baseball. Now, a last vestige has fallen in golf, brought down in record fashion here in the middle of the Old South, by a young man of color.

Tiger Woods, 21, who is of African and Thai heritage, today became the youngest golfer in history to win the Masters at the Augusta National Golf Club. In doing so he shattered myths and broke records and again altered the face of the game.

Woods's final round of 69 gave him a total score of 18-under-par 270, the lowest in the 61-year history of the event, breaking the record held jointly by Jack Nicklaus and Raymond Floyd. His 12-stroke victory over Tom Kite, 47, was the widest margin ever in the Masters -- indeed, the widest in any major championship conducted in the United States -- and it made him the first man of African heritage to win a professional major championship.

This one, though, means the most to Woods, not merely for the remarkable way in which it was accomplished, but for its social significance. A black golfer did not play in the Masters until 1975. Augusta National had no black members until 1990 when Ron Townsend, a broadcasting executive, was admitted after a controversy over the lack of black members at Shoal Creek, where the P.G.A. Championship was played that year.

By winning today, Woods finished what other people had started.

''It means so much,'' Woods said. ''I'm the first, but I wasn't the pioneer. Charlie Sifford, Lee Elder, Teddy Rhodes, those guys paved the way for me to be here. I thank them. If it wasn't for them, I might not have had the chance to play here.''

Despite a stellar record, Sifford was never invited to play in the Masters. Elder was the first black man to play the event, in 1975. Rhodes never played on the PGA Tour because of a Caucasian-only rule that was not rescinded until 1960."

Dulli has one of Lee Travino's grand kids in a cage as we speak. She's awaiting deportation to San Francisco.
