    I share it. But what frustrates me more is that people on this site seem to forget this country is not left of center. Look at any political spectrum, the US tends to fall very much right of center much more so than many of our allies. The Rs have done a very good job of brainwashing this country. I don't like it and I know you don't like it either.....but that's reality. And the only way we will move this country left is over time doing a good job.

    Obama is a first step, not the last step. He is the most liberal president in 30 years. He is popular and the people love him. He will move us more left but not until his second term. He is governing with the country that elected them, not with the country he wishes it were. You want him to govern as if the US were the country you dream of. We're not there yet.....but my biggest hope is that Americans are starting to wake up to the fact that Rs have sold them a phony bill of goods.

      could've (and still could) change this country to left of center just as FDR did.  But he hasn't tried yet.

      It was just a joke.  

      I don't know who I'm more afraid of - the Republicans and the Military-Industrial complex selling the country a phony bill of goods, or liberals like you who think the voters are too sensitive for my cynical outbursts.

      Whatever their motivations, both groups show a lack of faith in the intelligence of their intended audience.

      Wow. Good luck with getting me to vote for him a second time.

      To discuss Republican policies that hurt the less affluent and favor those that need no favors is class warfare.

    •  80% of the public supported the public option. (0+ / 0-)

      Even a majority of Republican voters favor ending DADT.  Check the issue, and chances are good that the "left of center" position is the one supported by a majority to supermajority of Americans.  So do please, put the bogus excuses to bed along with the bogus HR's...

      But what frustrates me more is that people on this site seem to forget this country is not left of center.
