Every Republican in the Senate voted against the unemployment benefits bill. Yet, they are all in favor of making more war in Afghanistan....Deadlines? Who said anything about deadlines?

Meet the new dirtbag boss same as the old dirtbag boss - only slicker.....

At least we knew George W Bush was a scumbag from the outset. Obama cloaks himself better at it than Bush did.

Bush was US policy without the mask. Obama wears his.

All those people who gathered at Grant Park on election night 2008 with tears of hope and joy to hear Obama address them, and all those watching on TV that night - all those people - Obama has stabbed in the back with his asinine post-partisanship nonsense.

Newsflash to Obama Adminstration - you don't control the message no matter how hard you try and you won't control the message - ever - as long as we have a monopoly media and as long as you keep trying to be Republicans when you were elected to be Democrats.

Now Obama has his Catfood Commission looking into ways to screw over Social Security. With Democrats like this who needs Republicans?


Obama is a one-term President. Mark my words.

Another pointless thread attacking Obama, instead of attempting to find a solution.

The fall of the US didn't happen over the last 2 years, no matter how much you may wish it to be the case.

Perhaps another neo-conservative administration is in order for the US.

Here's the solution:

a) Withdrawal from Afghanistan not escalation or continuing COIN.

b) Social Security shouldn't be a sacrifical lamb offered at the altar of bipartisanship. He wasn't elected to do that by anyone.

If/when Obama loses the next election it will be because he didn't act Progressive enough on issues that matter to real people.

He has the power of the bully-pulpit to go over Congress' head and go straight to the American people to push his agenda (like Reagan did and FDR did). He won't do it.

He is a Conservative Democrat.

Unfortunately, the suffering hasn't reached a point where there can be real change we can believe in.

It may take a Republican to end the wars just as it may take a Democrat to destroy or seriously harm Social Security.

Then what are you complaining about? The situation should make you happy. Democracy in action. Or do you just like to hear yourself complain?

Income Inequality Has Gone Up

The chairman of the White House Council of Economic Advisers, Jason Furman, recently wrote in the Washington Post that "Last year saw the largest single-year reduction in poverty since the 1960s."
