28. The "Rope-a-Dope" only works if it is followed by a Knock Out Punch.
So far, thats the only part Obama hasn't delivered yet.

I watched O'Donnel's lengthy presentation Step by Step with intense fascination,
but I can reduce it to just one step:
Obama is winning politically by adopting the Republican's positions,
leaving them no place to go.


This is wonderful for "Centrist" politics,
but very, VERY bad for the Working Class & The Poor.

...but if it gets Obama a political "WIN",
what do the lives of a few millions of Working Class & Poor people matter? :shrug:

Who will STAND and FIGHT for THIS American Majority?
You will know them by their WORKS,
not by their excuses.
