Yes, they aren't patriotic.

Via Best of the Web, Michael Tomasky gives a glimmer that some Democrats are coming to their senses. I disagree that government entitlements have been good for our people or our government. But Roosevelt's public works projects created jobs and circulated money and maintained a climate of hope. The main problem with the New Deal is that it became the template for Democrat politics ever since, when they were no longer needed. The expansion of bureaucracy has run on and on, until is almost impossible to stop.

Now the generation that knew FDR is dying out and the Anti-war Boomers seem to have taken over. They'll run the party into the ground, unless someone with some sense rescues it.
