  •  These are your opinions, not facts. They hinge (0+ / 0-)

    on assumptions about BO's motive on fiscal policy and the liberal-ness of voters which are at least disputable.

    I could as easily argue that Bernanke was re-appointed bc 1) the need for continuity in the midst of crisis, and 2) he has turned the spigot wideopen on the only kind of stimulus possible after the ARRA, monetary.  It is my opinion that those are 2 of the correct reasons for this. As evidence I pt to the horns Thugs have painted on B for doing his job rather than joining them in sabotaguing BO's 1st term economy.

    Likewise, while I sometime agree that his positions are not as liberal as they could or should be, I note that for many polls show support for the components which disappears once you identify it as BOs plan.  Racism, tribalism, religious and theocratism among other things trump reason, even rational self-interest, for far to much of the electorate.

    And, oh btw, he only beat a walking plutocratic robotic charicature by 6 pts.

    As for your ad hominem, go f-- yourself.  You obviously know nothing of my views.  Go read some of my comments since 2004.

    •  He was re-appointed because he implemented (0+ / 0-)

      policies which Bush and Obama both approved.

      Continuity isn't what the people voted for in 2008.

      He's done such a piss-poor job as President that only beat Romney by six points.  That's not because racism somehow massively increased in four years.

      It's because he had nothing to run on but "this other guy is horrible".

      I know everything I need to know about you - you have nothing to offer but defenses of the indefensible.  The President completely ignores poverty, does fuck-all to create jobs, continues Republican policies at home and abroad....

      And all you've got is some half-baked notion that the same people who elected him on a moderate progressive platform in 2008 have turned into stupid slavering racists.

      I don't give a fuck what you had to say when Bush was fucking this country over.  Right now, you're a right winger defending a right wingers pursuit of right wing policies.

      income gains to the top 1% from 2009 to 2011 were 121% of all income increases. How did that happen? Incomes to the bottom 99% fell by 0.4%
