  •  Now that Obama is in Jimmy Carter territory... (9+ / 0-)

    ...with his approval ratings, maybe we can be spared the lectures about "pragmatism" and "11-dimensional chess" and "ponies" and how intelligent he is and all the rest of that crap from his defenders.

    He had the biggest mandate of any Democrat since LBJ in 1964 and his incompetence and fealty to Wall Street, Big Oil (with a special reach-around to BP), Big PhARMA, the health insurance industry, the hospital industry, General Petreaus, the military-industrial complex, the for-profit education complex, the prison-industrial complex, the national security state, the Tea Party and the Lieberman/Baucus wing of the Democratic Party have taken him into Jimmy Carter/GHW Bush territory.

    It takes some doing to screw the pooch like that.

    Republicans actually have a chance to control both houses of Congress and the White House again, just four years after letting Osama blow up the WTC, drowning a city, miring the country in two simultaneous Vietnams and blowing the economy to smithereens.

    THAT is what Obama has accomplished. And neither Lily Ledbetter nor DADT nor that fucking health insurance reform bill make up for that.

    Barack Obama: So morally bankrupt that he thinks people who tortured other people to death should get a pass. Likes to prosecute whistleblowers, though.
