But your last paragraph was a giggle. I'm sorry but I don't see this president ever listening to a union.

I supported him. I campaigned for him. I sent him money. But he has betrayed my support by working diligently to undo years of work by determined teachers to help students in order to funnel more money to the 1%. I have liked some of his efforts, and I know that he has been beset by the worst of human nature in the form of rabid conservatives. But he has tucked tail and bowed to them too often, and in the case of the thing I care about most, the thing I gave 40 years of my life to, he has sided with the worst of the worst. No republican could ever have have attacked teachers and unions and children like this. Before Obama, the Democrats would have fought tooth and nail to keep it from happening. But, as evidenced by the lack of interest or concern here on DU, if Obama does it, it is given a pass.

While I disliked his bailing bankers and wall street out before people and didn't like his embracing of the bush era NSA crap while letting the lies and treason of bush/cheney go without question, it is his support for the work of rhee and duncan that will be what I think of when I think of the legacy of this president.

Sorry to be so much a downer, but I can find nothing of the party that I loved from my youth. DU, which should be where Democrats act like Democrats, just yawns as we become the party of reagan.
