  •  No President can do anything in this environment (0+ / 0-)

    Wildly incorrect. Look at what Obama has done as the Chief Executive and consider the choices he could have made instead. The president remains the single most powerful person in the country, even if Congress as an institution is more powerful than the presidency (which may or may not be so).

    •  You could not have made a worse argument (0+ / 0-)

      with me, than to hold up President Obama's record of reform.  

      Some of the choices he could have made instead:  

      Single-payer
      Card check
      immigration reform
      end of Guantanamo and "extraordinary rendition"
      NOT to use drones
      reigning in FISA and the NSA

      I could go on and on...

      Finally, if the President is truly the most powerful person in the country, why is that we've been debating "austerity" for two whole fucking years?

      Shirley Chisholm was right. Our Republic is in deep trouble.
