More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    He said he was a pragmatist that would create a bipartisan consensus. I guess what you have done is post a list of the accomplishments of the New American Pragmatic Bipartisanship.

    the juggernaut of war that our country has become.

    Who can change this?  A president?  The Progressives are the only political group that sees what we've become.  How can we change all this?  How many years will it take to become a civilized country that benefits the world with its compassion, innovation, and wealth.

    The United States signed weapons agreements valued at $37.8 billion in 2008, or 68.4 percent of all business in the global arms bazaar, up significantly from American sales of $25.4 billion the year before.

    All of this will be used to kill and maim.  This crime is beyond GW Bush or Cheney.  It is a sick and twisted madness.

    There are two kinds of people, those who finish what they start and so on. (Geo. B. Shaw)

  •  I wasn't expecting a liberal. (3+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    I was expecting was a good government centrist with mildly progressive tendencies.

    I used to describe Obama's program of corporate enabling and his fetish for pleasing the Establishment as a "collapse": collapse on torture; collapse on FISA; collapse on telecom immunity; collapse on "fierce" advocacy for LGBT rights; collapse on transparency; collapse on Wall Street.

    Now I realize that to collapse on something requires having honestly stood for it in the first place.
