    I mean seriously, Obama took all sorts of shit from the right to get HCA through.  HCA took Bush's UNFUNDED Medicare D, and funded it.  And I wonder why I'm continuously running into people who can't or won't recall the simplest facts like that that happened a few years ago.

    As far as what to do to win the elections... aside from the fact that doing what is right and running the goddamn government first and formost is what he was elected to do, I"m pretty certain that Obama, the White House and the Dem leadership are doing their best.  They may even know more than you or I or Laura Clawson who wrote this dairy knows.

    As to demographics here, I sure hope so, because if Christian Theology is anywhere close to correct, there is a special place in hell waiting for the relatively well treated Fed civil servants who put their own interests ahead of the vast sea of people who don't enjoy anything close to the job benefits that they do.
