    He didn't say any of those things, and Ralm and his press secretary made some unfortunate comments.  Also Obama didn't abandon the things he campaigned on.  Yet it is true that what he has done is a watered down version of what most progressives want, however he is also dealing with unreasonable politicans on the GOP side and inadequate help from his own side of Democratic politicans.  This is the government of today.

    I don't recall anyone saying that people like you are retarded, but purists -- yes, I would even use that characterization, although I don't find that to be an insult.  Professional leftists?  We ALL are that so count me in.  

    The problem is that for every thing that you read that you are offended by, I can recount a few zingers coming out of the mouths of people who think like you.  

    In the end, it doesn't get us anywhere.
