    You're quite right that it all started long before Obama came along. But because of that, it should have been easy to see all along that the demonization of the ideas and of Obama himself would be coming. And yet the whole Administration seem to have been completely caught off guard. (Anybody remember when they thought there would be 80 votes in the Senate for the stimulus at the start of 2009? They unilaterally reduced its size for that, before they had to reduce it again to get Republican compromisers.)

    Obama didn't start it, but the point of the diary is that I thought he could do something about it; or at least that he would try, far more than he seems to have done.

    Absolute power corrupts absolutely.
