Re: Obama says he's out of touch, but offers no concessions: President Obama’s first reaction to the republicans after the midterm results: Let us find “common ground.” Absolutely amazing – but not surprising. Everything he gave them for the last two years only further empowered their resolve to destroy him – and any possible remaining chances for Progressive change. The “common ground” during that span was incessant corporate (Blue Dog) appeasement, which reflected Obama’s actual standing. Consequently, his original base was torn – in stages of revulsion. Anything learned? : “What the American people want is for us to mix and match ideas.” Wrong! The majority of citizens wanted the “Change” they were promised – not the same status quo, step-by-step sellouts prevalent since the Reagan years, or updated methods of watering down every measure to the point where the industrial/financial/military circle (neo-cons/neo-liberals) may as well have put forth/planned them themselves – yet openly.
Your support of the program is invaluable. Producing the Thom Hartmann Program is a labor of love for the team, but doesn't come without cost. We supply the program to non-profit, community and volunteer radio and cable stations across the US. However, this isn't cost-free and being a supporter through Patreon means you can help us to meet some of the bills, to allow us to continue free supply to the non-profit sector.
As a way of saying thank you, we would like to give you something back for your support at various levels. Every weekday, the live Thom Hartmann Program three hour program is recorded exclusively for Patreon supporters. Unedited, the full three-hour video will be right here on the Patreon page, within a couple of hours of the end of the live program. And we're also providing extra videos exclusive to sponsors.
