    Is no better than the Republican Party with respect to farm subsidies.

    One needs to look back no farther than the last Farm Bill for the proof of this.

      is no better than we demand them to be.  It's time to take back the reins.

        President Obama has 'pragmatized' himself so much I'm not sure he'll swing to the left after the '12 election.

        And even if he is willing to compromise less with the Republicans, are the Democrats in Congress going to back him?

        I don't think either can go it alone.   Meanwhile, Obama and the Congressional Dems are standing at the door saying "You go first", "No you go first.."  while the Republicans are driving through the door with a big MAC truck.

        sigh.
