“I thought that Democrats had philosophical disagreements with the opposing party.
Krugman says it well: ...it’s a collision of fundamentally incompatible world views...

Obama appears to be the embodiment of spinelessness. I wonder how many democrats voted for impasse? Impasse will lead to failure and failure to loss of power. Obama will go down as the greatest disappointment precisely because so much was expected from him.”

“Obama signalled during the primaries that he has no intention of ending employer-based health insurance. He CAN'T, he's in the pocket of the health insurance industry, who are one of the biggest profit centers left in the country (along with the oil companies).

So if we WANT single payer, we should FIGHT for it, which is why I switched from being an Obama precinct captain to being a Ralph Nader supporter. Ralph is, and always has been, a supporter of single payer health care. That's a fight we are going to have to win, or we will never be able to compete with European nations and despots. Why? Because we are adding the cost of health care to every product we sell.

Health care should be a birthright... read the Preamble...

“who ripped off our country?

the smartest guys in the room in fact and indeed, you see - your basic thief steals knowing that the law is against him and pays for his stupidity, insolence, audacity, criminality, what have you. The smart guys (Robert Rubin amongst them) successfully lobby congress to decriminalize their actions before they engage in what moments before had been a crime? Here, Joe Biden, as well as Bill Clinton, etc, are at the heart of the matter (Glass Steagall Act).

So, what does Paul have to say about all of the Democrats who went along with Phil Gramm, and Sandy Weill in paving the road to a smooth distraction of the World Economy?

If we ignore the bipartisanship at the highest eschellons of Government as being the fountainhead from which the lawful larceny sprung - we will indeed deserve what we get.

I know Republicans to be thieving enablers of Legalized Grand Larceny. Do the Democrats know that without their ranks colluding, this crap could not have happened? Will the blinkered partisan Democrats come to heir senses, or is this whole crap a big charade?”

“Pining for some long lost monarchy Mr. Heilbrunn?

First he was against Burris, then he demurred? - steady as he goes?

Personally, I'll give more weight to Ideas generated by the shrill one, than Larry Summers, his mentor Rubin and acolyte Geithner.

On one of the most important issues facing the President Elect you'd be happy with a sweeping decree based on kissing up to Wall Street and the wingnuts?

I think it's your type of Democrats that make their type of Republican Presidents possible.”

But what does it mean - spin, propaganda, bs, ?

Q; Should Democrats tolerate that kind of bull?
A: They do!

so, it is incumbent upon progressive to point out that 'mind-melding' with your opposition is tepid as piss at best.
You want lies to rule.... Laurie Kellman will spin you silly into the arms of corporate soma.”

“why is it so damn difficult for people to realize that the mess is a feature of Bipartisanship and not a flaw?

while the Republicans were moving the Goalposts way left the 'Left' did not scream bloody murder, filibuster, close down congress, hoard air time, etc... they just f&*!# went along.

is the Left going to march all of it back?!? - you know they won't and yet you'll continue voting for the shell game.

Shame on the DemocRAT Voters! - snookered yet again!”

When did the R's ever move left? Don't you remember the RINO hunts? The Republicans purged their own party of moderates. That's not moving left.”

“"a prosperous, stable Russia is in everyone's interest"

oh, really?

seems to me that anyone paying attention would notice that the American Administration has been all out to create as much chaos, political and financial all over the world, as to benefit a select group of Invested interests. They thrive on Chaos winning coming and going. The cynicism is sick and not only tolerated but supported by the American elites of both parties!”

“Why not question, If not the right then at minimum the hypocrisy of responding, after all:

Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser blockaded the Straits of Tiran on May 21st and 22nd to all shipping from and to Eilat; the area was open to Israeli ships under UN supervision since 1957, and Israel repeatedly stated that such a blockade will be considered as casus belli.”
