13. ".the most successful presidency in recent history. "... Talk about damning
with faint praise.

If that's the best that you can come up with it doesn't even hit the board. The Democratic leadership has sold it's soul and the American people out for a verry thin slice of the corporate pie, or a seat at the kids table in the corporate oligarchy banquet.It's not a pretty sight to behold, the supposed party of the people attempting to out Republican the GOPosse, but that's exactly what they've been doing since Clinton and the *new Democrats* were invented and the DLC took over.Certainly you can crow all the fuck you want about half-assed accomplishments but halfassed ain't gonna come anywhere close to fixing the problems this nation faces.

Unless and until the Democratic Party and it's elected officials have the determination and the grit to hoe the hard row and stick to their beliefs w/o selling their principles down the river at the first sign of resistance we are well and truly fucked.

But don't let me stand in the way of your cake and ice cream celebration for the wonderful state of the gulf, legal cannabis users still being harassed and the rest of the civil rights that are being flushed down the toilet because your team managed to save a bank and an automaker.
