    ...respect to the diarist and apologists like you, Republicans aren't in power right now (unless you consider the needle pricks in the House to be agents of power...I sure don't).

    This one falls at the feet of the president and those who prop up this madness. Your complicity helps no one.

    And BTW, we won't "be on the same page" in 2014. If this bullshit continues, Democrats will have lost my vote in national elections. I'll be a down-ballot party supporter...as will many others I know here.

    Adequate health care should be a LEGAL RIGHT in the U.S without begging or bankruptcy. Until it is, we should not dare call our society civilized.

    •  By all accounts (11+ / 0-)

      this President (the Democrat) is using the FISA Court and put in safeguards to that end.

      By all accounts, the last President (the Republican) thumbed his nose at the FISA Court and at any and all oversight of his Unitary Executive.

      That is not a subtle difference or distinction, and so, with your last sentence, you confirm my fear.

        ...all is well in this regard.

        I hold politicians accountable. If you choose to stick your head int he sand because, you know, 2014 and all...that's your choice.

        And FYI...If there weren't terrible policies enraging many on our side, you would have nothing to fear with regards to 2014. The economy sucks...Obama's NSA is spying on everyday citizens...and there are so many scandals floating around the White House that we can scarcely address any of the policy problems that plague the country.

        Forgive me if I don't "Meh" about all this.

      Like I can remember when there were all these people that were DONE.. and I mean DEE OH ENN EEE - DONE with the Great Betrayer Barack Obama when he failed to include a public option in Obamacare.

      oh, and I can remember when we decided that Obama was just another shill for the Military-Industrial complex for sending more troops to Afghanistan and not closing Gitmo.

      ooh!... remember how many people were FINISHED with the Republican-LITE party when Obama refused to investigate war crimes ...and then AGAIN when no Bankers from Wall Street were perp walked out of their office?  

      I remember all these things.   ...here's two things I don't remember though from 2012:

      a) hearing so much as the word "boo" from these pearl-clutches when we were looking at the specter of a Romney/Ryan Administration, and

      b) giving a shit

      See you next year comrade.
