Anyone hear Randi Rhode' show today, 8-1-11?
On her show today, Randi Rhodes was outlining the terms of the debt ceiling deal (very clearly) and saying it could work well for Democrats. She doesn't think the deal process was a good idea--it should have been a clean upgrade, but in the overall context, she feels Obama has bested the Republicans. So far, she's the only progressive I've heard saying that.
I won't repeat the details here, only point people to her website to download the show or find it elsewhere online: http://www.therandirhodesshow.com/main.html
I'd love to hear her and Thom discuss all this on the air, though I realize that Thom usually likes to debate guests with opposing views (conservatives). Perhaps he will continue to oppose the deal, hence, disagree with Randi. My bottom line is, I am looking for any rays of hope.
I am hoping her view proves correct, but I worry that it won't.
PLEASE LISTEN TO HER PROGRAM BEFORE RESPONDING. Otherwise this is pointless.
