    Yet another neoliberal President.
    I would like you to back up your statements. "He believes health care is a right." Does he? Has he brought any justice to the banks or Wall St? Instead, he brought in a bunch of Wall Streeters to manage the economy. The debacle continues, and we can easily see a great collapse under Obama as we saw under Bush. Has he brought any justice to the greatest foreign policy debacles in US history? Torture, illegal spying, lying us into a $2 trillion war? The Obama administration is at least as aggressive as Bush in asserting executive privilege.
    Is he the same as Mitt Romney? No, of course he isn't, but his ideological weakness caused the loss of the Democratic majorities, and has turned off a generation of voters. Now he throws us "gay marriage" to try to resurrect some interest as being something other than yet another neoliberal fixer like Bill Clinton. But somehow, I am supposed to be a happy cheerleader so these guys can figure that as long as they are running against radical nut jobs, they can be as conservative as they want to be. I cringe at the Democratic down ticket prospects in November.
