  •  Another indication that Obama just doesn't get it (0+ / 0-)

    He could nominate Rumsfeld for Sec of State and Republicans would say he's too liberal. Why doesn't Obama understand this?

    I don't know what to say except that anyone who was expecting President Obama to come out as a stealth progressive after re-election better be ready for some head shaking times over the next four years when his first moves after the election are proposing to cut social security and backing off a tax hike for 250k, allowing Graham/McCain to nuke the Susan Rice nomination, and floating a Republican and Sec. of Defense when Penetta hasn't even decided to give up his seat yet. It's clear that his only action is a reaction. If progressives aren't putting pressure on him and making constant demands you can expect we will receive nothing except warmed-over Heritage Foundation leftovers for the next 4 years.
