    I don't expect one, but I did expect him to offer actual policy prescriptions.

      ... look away from the rhetoric and look to the policy proposals, in the context of what that particular electorate wants to hear.

      When you see a politician running for the Democratic nomination in a primary field talking about health care and trade, and he offers the least progressive health care reform and the strongest support for Corporate Money Grab Agreements among the main contenders, you have your clue already that this is someone pushing left of where he'd rather be, to avoid getting outflanked on the left.

      A problem that will go away once the general election rolls around, never mind after winning the general election when in government.

      what was the point of him becoming President?

        Remember during the height of the primary where he talked about how Reagan changed the political scene? Where is that from him. Why wasn't he supporting Dems in the state legislative races that allowed the right to hijack the gerrymandering?

        •  Why was Obama not supporting Dems? (0+ / 0-)

          because he is a child of the DLC (although he denied this.) During the entire time frame of 2004 to 2007, one Rahm Emanuel was going around the USA, making sure that only DLC candidates got  the party's backing and money.

          Progressives who were far more valuable in taking us from a society of for and by the One Percent were deliberately shut out. Time and time again.

          And as repayment for his efforts, we all know where Emanuel ended up.

          Offer your heart some Joy every day of your life, and spread it along to others.
