    "Manchurian candidate" here.  Howzabout he's a "Centrist."  That's nasty enough in my book.

    I was pretty clear-eyed when I voted for the guy.  Don't think I'd play it any differently if I could do it over; it's National politics and you don't get the Elizabeth Warrens there.  But yes, not exactly a progressive hero.  And not so great at playing this hand.  Wall street gets the win.  When do they not?

    •  Seems like "guy who means what he says" ... (7+ / 0-)

      .... would be more appropriate.

      He said he was a centrist two years before running and yet, somehow, the diarist is able to tag this "obama betrayal" ?

      Probably most appropriate would be "diarist wasn't paying attention and now thinks he's been scammed though it's his own damned fault for not paying attention."

      That could apply to a lot of goofballs on this site.

    •  He's not a centrist. (0+ / 0-)

      He's to the right of freakin' NIXON.

        •  I'm sure Nixon would have approved (0+ / 0-)

          of marriage equality too, if enough higher-ups in his own party started abandoning his "evolutionary" position on the matter, and if enough high-roller donors had been threatening to withhold.

          Now let's talk about "entitlement reform."
