    What's it going to take for most people to recognize that President Obama isn't on the side of the working class, poor and elderly?

      ...you start realizing it was either him or the austerity faeries of Mitt Romney.

      Statements like yours are reactionary and childish. Go back to your progressive dreamland while the rest of us deal with reality...

        ...and whatever other cuts are coming down the line when the Debt Ceiling fight begins in earnest.

        How are you lot going to sell that as a victory?

          ....that's when he'll REALLY sell us out...unlike this time when all he did was get Republicans to vote in favor of raising taxes on the wealthy and extending unemployment benefits without touching the social safety net...

          Yes, yes...NEXT TIME...

        Believe me I can respond with the best of them, but I'm not...yet.

        I'll just say that if I wanted Republican policies, I would have voted for a Republican.

        I know.  I know.  The Republicans made him do it all.

        through one set of policies or another.  Neoliberal or conservative, it doesn't seem to matter.  The poor and middle class are getting the shaft by the party that is supposed to give a damn.

        The reality is, is that this situation is not tenable for the long term.  You cannot build a lasting house on a crumbling foundation no matter how thick the walls or well-engineered the rest of it is.
