wow... that was... brutal


i saw clinton's speech. he still is a charmer.

i dont get the republicans very much but they must be the equivalant of european conservatives.

at least they are not tea party or what's it called, that seemed ultra conservative bordering on other things

they include tea party

One of the comedy central people found an older lady at the democratic convention that repeatedly referred to them as "teabaggers". :p I don't think she had any idea.

I'm not sure how we would compare to Greek parties, so I'll go by the more Northern European countries ...
Our liberal Democrats are pretty equivalent to many European conservative parties actually. The Republicans are more equivalent to whatever Europe calls the party that thinks the conservatives are too far left. The Tea Party hopefully doesn't even exist in Europe ... or anywhere else in the World.

Actually The Tea Party was alright for like the first few days, but it very quickly got taken over by whackjobs.

well greek parties dont have "christian" - anything next to them (like some other countries do)

other than that there're pretty similar (ideologically).

the only party that thinks that conervatives are too left wing are either nationalistic or even more to the right... (fascist/nazist/racist)

I was talking with a friend about the US and integration policies.
I think that even the republican party pretty much squashes any other "equivalant" european party in tolerance. (aka it's far more tolerant)

otoh when obam tried to do something with universal health care, there were protests accusing him of being... socialist, communist...
that was really "shocking" over here and incomprehensible as a reaction.

i guess there are different shades of "different" between republican party and european ones. :)
