73. If there are any differences, Obama is fading them faster and faster ...
I'd say, Obama's move to the right is exactly what brought OWS out into

the streets --

and the message is that both parties are finished!

Koch Bros. funded DLC infiltrated and influenced the party for more than 20 years,

including the party agenda and its candidates --

The party is now controlled by Third Way -- and their basic policy/stance is that

"the base of the party is to be ignored" --

Granted there are a FEW Democrats left -- but seemingly there is nothing left of the

Democratic Party which is supportable -- !!

There are still a few Democrats clinging to hope for the next election, and still supporting the people of this country, who are not the same.

Additionally, just to recap -- a few weeks ago I caught Jonathan Cowan on C-span/Washington

Journal -- and he made clear that their stance/policy is "that the base of the party is to

be ignored" --

Additionally, he related to the C-span audience that ...

"populism and populist discussion and debate is the equivalent of Karl Rove propaganda of

extremism" -- !!

Got that? New Deal, Social Security, Medicare, safety nets is Karl Rove extremism!

Who could possibly support any of this?

Yes -- I will support the FEW -- with individual contributions -- but they exist only within

a party under the control of corporations.

If you recall what they did to Byron Dorgan when he tried to move Medicare negotiation on

prescription drugs, you understand the futility of this. Byron's next move was to be to reinstate

Glass-Steagall. After the party abandoned him on the Medicare issue that didn't happen -- and

he announced he wouldn't run for another term.

How much longer are we going to kid ourselves?

Because the longer we wait, the further the party and Congress will move to the RIGHT!
