  •  You got it right when you said: (3+ / 0-)

    "President Obama has never been an ally to the liberal base and never will be.  This proposal represents what this administration wants and liberals should build out their own funding mechanisms to primary any Democrat that votes for this 'bargain'..."  

    Democrats are now what Republicans used to be while Republicans have moved off the deep end to the right.  We essentially have no left left when progressives support and defend extremely regressive public policies just because Obama does.

    •  I will say that Obama is best liberal Republican (0+ / 0-)

      President this country has ever had.  Up there with Eisenhower. But we really need to stop coddling him when he pulls the crap he's pulling over the fiscal curb.  

      There is no re-elect.  Democrats who are to the left of this administration should take off the kid gloves and start raising some hell.
