    That's the extent of the True Left?

    No wonder you feel as if you have no representation. There's no one to speak with you.

        I still do support Occupy.

        They are single-handedly behind the pivot to jobs and the improvement in President Obama's poll numbers.

        You see, any careful reading of history would confirm that President Obama is the most leftist President in History. More leftist than FDR. More leftist than LBJ. And I can argue those assertions very well.

        But I also know that the Occupy crowd has a long way to go to achieve their version leftism.

        Movements lead Presidents, Presidents don't lead movements.

            That's what it's worth.

              Everyone in this era is a conservative, except those who actually have a future in mind which one can be progressive about.

              I may not agree, but a lot of the folks who are working hardest for a Democratic victory in November seem convinced of the notion. It's almost as if people in different parallel universes share access to Daily Kos in common.

                Even Rubinism is a tough taskmaster.
