Overall, though I do not agree with everything Thom Hartmann and Norman Goldman say...I agree with them more often than I disagree. And, while Republicans have shown themselves to be 99% in the pockets of the corporations and wealthy elite, while the Democrats have "only" shown themselves to be 75% in those same pockets...Hartmann erred a bit today. He said that, since the 1880s Republicans have ONLY supported and fought for policies that helped and supported the corporations and the wealthy. I think the robber barrons of TR's and Lafollette's day might not agree with such characterizations. And, despite their flaws, it was Richard Nixon who signed the Environmental Protection Act, which created the Environmental Protection Agency, into law...and George H.W. Bush (a.k.a. Bush41) who renewed The Clean Air Act. Though Republicans of the last ten years have gone so far to the right they make Arlen Specter and Bob Dole look like a couple of communists...Hartmann over-stated his case quite a bit.
