39. True. What is happening is the consequences of Republican dominance.
President Obama can't be expected to correct AT LEAST 15 years of Republican dominance,...forty years of capitalistic strong-arming. He had NOTHING to do with all that preceded him. To the contrary, he has spent his life trying to rebuild in such aftermaths. What is with people's cognition, these days?
