    You can't have repeated fuck-ups the size of what is happening under the Dem/Obama watch, and have it be an accident. It's just not possible. We would have never believed it under a Republican President and the same should be true for our "Democratic" President.

    The Dems and Obama aren't just incompetent, or disorganized, or have bad messaging, or good intentions but not enough experience, or a tough time of it because of Bush's mess, or struggling because of the GOP, or, or, or....They want to have happen, what is happening, otherwise it wouldn't be happening.

    Quit making it more difficult than it is.

      I think the massive and devastating unpopularity of healthcare totally shocked them and the rest is history.

      Healthcare was our Waterloo....

      Obama is not the solution; he's part of the problem. He isn't "weak"; he's quite bright and pursuing the precise agenda he believes in.  Progressives aren't on his radar and the sooner we realize it, the less disillusioned and disappointed we'll be. We can then stop speculating about his chess moves and bitching about obstructionist Republicans and start talking about options....not that I have any to put on the table, but I'm looking because the extant ones are in the toilet.
