  •  The very beginning of Obama's term, was the time (4+ / 0-)

    ... for a new New Deal.  That's when he had overwhelming popularity. That's when his personal cachet and his backing by the American people could have forced Congress to go along - at the very least with a lot of it.

    Besides, if you're going to be labeled as a Socialist, Healthcare-nationalizing president - you might as well do it! :)

    ...it's no New New Deal. It's not all that liberal or progressive.

    Same shit, different year.

      watching obama and mitch mcConnel shaking hands for photo ops, only to have mcconnell aiming his turtle-faced mug at tv cameras five minutes later to explain ad nauseum how clueless obama and the left is....

      yeah.

      but obama has decided that this was the price to pay for him to win again in 2012. guess the midterms really scared the shit out of the WH.
