    have chained CPI is that the insane portion of the right wing hates Obama so much they're not willing to give him a success on anything. We keep being saved from crappy policy by a bunch of insane racists.

    Reality also tells me that the Overton window phenomenon is real, and basically both parties are now agreeing on economic views that start with Reaganomics and go rightward from there.

    But hey, believe whatever you want to, and if you support your beliefs by looking down on others as being insufficiently sophisticated about the political inside game, you will not be alone.

    if necessary for years; if necessary, alone

      with me, so I don't fear aloneness.  

      Was Reagan serious about building a strong middle class?  I did not know that.  Good on him!  I missed his support of financial regulations and strong unions and a strong manufacturing base and green energy and training people for today's jobs and reducing the cost of health care as well.  I was probably just busy then.

      I'm not looking for a love that will lift me up and carry me away. A love that will stroll alongside and make a few amusing comments will suffice.
