Obama is obsessed with Republicans' approval like an abused pet, but will he ever be anything more to them than "That One Black President?"
The message so prominent in the president Obama campaign for his election has to be attributed to Marshall Ganz. In reference to an article in the nation February 21, 2011 by Sasha Baranski. The man behind the message.
For the very first time since listening and watching Thom since 2005, I am really disappointed. He stated that the reason Obama rolled over on the debt deal was because the outcry from citizens wasn't enough. Come on!!!!! Thom himself quoted several nationwide polls that CLEARLY showed more than 85% of citizens demanded that the rich and corporations start paying their fair share!!!!!

Thom, you asked rhetorically what the differences between the parties are anymore. Here's how I see it. Corporate leaders rule everything.

I am flying out to the midwest tomorrow. I am hoping that, despite not getting paid, the fine folks at the FAA are more dedicated to the public safety than is John Boehner (who is getting paid!).
In 2008, I campaigned for Barack Obama. I donated (repeatedly, as much/often as I could afford to) to Barack Obama's campaign. I voted for Barack Obama and celebrated so very much when he was elected. Now, Barack Obama wants me to be "In" on his 2012 Presidential bid.
I am OUT.
Are you sick of how our country is turning to fascism and an elite aristocracy to rule and control the working people without their input? Do you want your Democracy back?
There will be an Egypt style march on DC on 6 October to protest the corporate oligarchy that has captured our government. Join us and stay until we see results. Take the pledge. They can only rule us if we let them.
Thom you need to let people know about this.
