  •  Clinging onto gridlock (0+ / 0-)

    With President Obama emulating his immediate predecessor's antics so well, with legislation such as the Monsanto Protection Act, authorizing 30,000 drones in the sky by the year 2023, expansion and extension of the Patriot Act, unilateral "authority" to suspend due process protections of citizens (w/o legislative oversight or judicial review), appointment of Bush/Cheney's torture advisor as the country's top spy, chained CPI for social security, refusal to prosecute blatant corruption on Wall Street, etc., gridlock until 2016 is about the only thing some on the left have to hold onto.

    "The highest patriotism is not blind acceptance of official policy, but a love of one's country deep enough to call her to a higher plain." --George McGovern
