    clusterfuck. You know, anytime a Democrat opens a door, another one turns up and deadbolts it shut.

    •  It is a mix and a muddle, for sure (4+ / 0-)
      Wealthy special interests, especially the big boys on Wall Street, and the opponents of progress continue to win out over middle and low income folks most of the time, even inside the Democratic party.

      Yet, the President clearly wants to be seen as a progressive champion. It’s a mix and a muddle.

      now, that it surely is not by accident.

      Pretty smart strategy.  Keep the masses in a state of utter confusion.

      After all, if from day to day the American populace doesn't have a clue what their government's policies are, they're not going to find a way to effectively mobilize against them.

      Instead, it sows confusion, and occupies and pits the various "factions" of Democrats against one another.

      Too bad this tactic destroys the very core of democracy as well.
