Obama's top priorities
They appear to be the same as the Republicans:

Cut the deficit.
Cut "entitlements".


Jobs creation?...LOL


If he is "playing chess" then why has he supported the Republican narrative so much?

1. It's all another name for Hooverism
Who in the name of God ever thought that FDR/FDR's policies would be sidelined, maligned, and trivialized, in favor of HERBERT F**king HOOVER of all people?????????????????

2. Top priorities
Edited on Fri Jul-08-11 11:58 AM by PATRICK
derive from Reagan myth that NO ONE in either party or any nut group intelligently roots in the real world. An awesome experiment in mind over all that matters.

Even Reagan never attempted so much or silenced his advisers so quietly. There are no handlers in fact to blame.

3. Protect the plutocrats no matter the cost
to everyone else. If you do not agree to that first principle, you will never come within sniffing distance of the presidency if you are a Democrat. The repukes believe it as a matter of habit and conviction. The Democratic party has buried itself, its history and its principles. Thanks DLC and Third Way. May you rot in the non-existent hell you so deserve.

4. I hope they never get rid of the unrec feature.
It's subjects like this that demand an unrec. Red meat much?

9. There was no truth.
It was an opinion.

LOL please don't give this opinion more clout than it deserves, it is but one of many such opinions. I look at them now as a game of who can out opinion the last guy. At first they were annoying, now they are expected and will go on until they are proven to be wrong....and then they will fade away. Then on to the next manufactured outrage. It is the way.

5. Because he's playing chess against YOU.
He's very good at that. He can maneuver himself into these cute positions from which he can sign right-wing legislation while saying he personally "supports" the liberal approach.

6. Trying to correct the Crisis caused by Conservative Economic
Fundamentalism, by initiating Republican Lite (DLC Third Way)
policies is not exactly the most winning strategy. Republican
Policies are going to render Republican Results. Could this
be contributing to such a slow recovery????

8. Republicans never want to cut the deficit unless a Democrat is in power.
You don't even know who the Republicans are.

Unrec for stupidity and FUD.
