    He knows as well as anyone that monied interests run our government, and he is trying to collaborate with them. This, I think, is justified.

    In the past, I've had to work with monied interests that i find incredibly distasteful to accomplish common goals. And the results were superb. That's "collaboration." I am not comparing myself to Obama, I know his job is 10,000 times more tough then mine, but he's the one who ran on the promise of hope and change, and we're the ones who believed him.

    Obama is not collaborating, he is compromising, enabling, and on the verge of capitulating. And I wish I didn't have to say this, but he will deserve the abandonment by progressives to follow if he enables and compromises much more.

    If the GOP doesn't protect America from empathy, who will?
