    Democrats without mercy about their inaction on civil rights issues. I do feel like they are failing on that front, and telling them inaction is not acceptable is apart of that. I can understand and relate with peoples strong frustrations with the Democratic establishment. Frankly, the thing that made me switch from a Dem to an Indie is the financial regulation. Timothy Geithner is going to reform Wall Street? I don't think so. But I still support the President and Democratic party on a host of other things so I keep criticizing and praising alike when it is required.

      Picking Summers and Geitner to head his economic team was a huge mistake, I believe.  I'm in favor of big economic change (breaking up the "too big to fail" banks) and heavy financial regulation.  Other than that, I'm right with him and ready to fight the Blue Dogs to force congress further to the left.

      A lot of the criticism of Obama on this site is, I think, of the variety "I can bad-mouth my brother, but you better not."
