    America's poor should not be driven farther into poverty. That is pure liberalism. The GOP will hurt the poor. Look into their track record and get ready to hold your nose and vote.

    It's The SCOTUS, Stupid!

      But let's not pretend Obama has exactly prioritized the poor.   And that's the area where Obama is most different.   Sigh

      •  Nothing pretend about it (0+ / 0-)

        You are simply looking for reasons to be disappointed it seems.

        cheers,

        Want to end too big to fail banks? Then move your money and they will no longer be too big.

          But not being a koolaid drinker I can see what is staring me in the face

              Non enforcement against wall street
              The campaign to scuttle Kyoto and Durban
              Pushing Bush's illegal ozone regs
              Signing on to Stupak amendment
              Freezing workers salaries
              Expanding coal and oil leasing beyond te rate Bush did
              Extending Bush tax cuts
              Putting social security o the table
              His anti-science policy with respect to contraception
              Focussing on austerity rather than jobs
              Hiring the board of Goldman Sachs to run the economy
              Advocating against progressives and progressive policies generally
              A more aggressive anti-immigrant policy than Bush
              Assassinating US citizens without warrant
              Fudging marriage equality (although I'll grant partial credit for his "evolution")
              His anti-Endangered Species policies

              That's a start.  Yes he has some good accomplishments but a quarterback who follows up a 7yard pass with an interception every three plays does not win the game
