    that you believe it's impossible for this country to do better than we've done in the last two years does not actually make it so.

    It just demonstrates that you believe 10 million people losing health insurance in that time frame is "good enough".

    It's surprisingly hard to have a reasonable conversation with a person who considers you a cockroach and publicly fantasizes about killing you with neurotoxins.

      we're talking about candidates for president in 2012.  it is obama or a republican, okay?

      of course america, and obama, can do better than the last two years.

      on the flip side, do you have a credible candidate in mind?

      seriously, jesse...do everyone a favor and do a little more thinking before you type.

        It's just "realistic" to cheer the jobless recovery and insist that refusing to fight for real improvement to working peoples lives is "pragmatic".

        You're apparently going to have to find out the hard way (again, since 2010 didn't sink in) that you can't brow beat jobless people with no insurance into going to polls.

        It's surprisingly hard to have a reasonable conversation with a person who considers you a cockroach and publicly fantasizes about killing you with neurotoxins.
