Are fringe liberals on the path to losing credibility forever?

It has always been difficult for the left to gain respect in a center-right America. The left has always been "placed in the corner", as idealistic, self-righteous brats, who are not to be taken seriously. But in recent years our ideas has been gaining more and more traction in the mainstream and some of the stereotypes are starting to fade.

But with this recent uproar, and overall criticism of Obama, who is regarded around the world as one of the most progressive presidents America has ever elected...can the far left be taken seriously anymore? Already we are seeing people from both sides and all over the world, sorta rolling their eyes at liberals like "whats wrong with these folks, can they ever be satisfied?"

Are progressives undermining their credibility forever by over-bashing a progressive president?

16. Thank you for this...

Apparently people get real upset here, when we're trying to have a rational discussion.The first clue to the inability to have a rational discussion it the rampant swearing on DU and the name calling. When you can't argue with facts........

24. Perhaps its time to look in the mirror then...

If my "right wing tripe" gets supported on a democratic site...who really needs to do the self-evaluation here? lol

27. You would get far more disagreements if most of the liberals have not been banned already

You have to have had something before you can lose it.

Truthspeak, your first mistake was assuming that you were talking to rational people.

The second mistake was telling the truth.

And your third was challenging their fantasy world; they'll rip our guts with a fork just for doing that alone.

DU is where the ultra fringe go, and they take pride in being stupid/crazy.

The one thing that will get you in trouble on DU is speaking truth to the powerless.:D
