We won the election - President Check - Senate Check - House Check!
Despite this, these is little or no leadership at any level - yes include Obama in this!. The health care reform fiasco is just the most recent example.Take a look at Guantanamo, government transparency, Iraq, John Yoo, Afghanistan, Iraq torture photos, financial regulation of wall street, wall street bonuses...and you will begin to see a pattern of having control of all branches of government and acting just like "Bush lite".
What do I think happened on health care?
With health care comprising about 18% of the economy the fire hose of lobbyist money aimed directly at the democratic politicians was almost too much for them to hope for.
The slow weakening of the health care bill has the dirty beauty of weasily democrats taking the money AND hiding behind a crappy boogieman, Lieberman, who rakes in the cash from the insurance companies in his state and gets the attention he and his mom always wished for him. The Dems are liars and cheats and so don't let Lieberman take the entire fall for this. He is a liar and fool but the entire party is the disgraceful story here. I only wish there was another party that would espouse what I believe is best for our country because I would go THERE right now. Fuck the Dems!
