41. It is CERTAINLY not just Nancy...lots of dem power brokers and dem leaders are
Edited on Wed Aug-13-08 10:55 AM by wiggs
behind this. It speaks to a much larger, sad, frustrating dynamic in which left and right are not that far apart in the effort to "strengthen" the United States through empire building, corporate dominance, control of information, and paring of the middle class in favor of ultra rich.

This is the focus of our government now, including but not limited to Pelosi. I get the feeling that any apparent dem victory is simply a crumb thrown to the majority of voters to keep us under the impression that we have a functioning democracy.

Our system of government, media, elections, foreign policy, etc are the way they are because it is INTENDED that they be that way by the rich and powerful from both sides of the aisle. You can be sure that Nancy is speaking for a lot of people in her statements; just not us or the general public. I can't explain events of the last 8 years any other way.

It's not about left vs right like they would have us believe.

(Yesterday: an appeals court decides that government officials can't be prosecuted if it can be argued that they are carrying out duties of their jobs???? And what's with dem leaders not taking much of an interest in a highly suspect FBI story about an ANTHRAX attack on dems? And where are the recriminations of Lieberman's McCain propaganda from yesterday regarding a VERY flammable Russia/Georgia conflict? Oh...and the administration talked about planting nuclear material in another country and actually did forge letters in order to accelerate war)

Sorry...poor attitude today.
