  •  Did I say I believe the Progressive Caucus (3+ / 0-)

    is progressive?  And it sure isn't left, liberal, or even old school New Deal.  

    •  Exactly. (5+ / 0-)

      Outside of GLBT rights, our progressive representation is limited to 3-5 representatives.

      And that does not make the President's staunchly counter-productive neoliberalism acceptable.

      Ditto for that of his supporters.

      He will NEVER be an effective leader for the goals he claims to have in this speech until he effectively confronts and denounces those aspects of modern neoliberalism that enhance the lawless, corrupt concentration of income and wealth. And he shows no credibly genuine interest in doing so.

      Frankly, I'd rather take down Exxon or Goldman Sachs, the way we're taking down RushBeckistan, than elect another "better" Democrat who's going to wind up singing for the bankster choir.

      •  Only 3 to 5? (0+ / 0-)

        Sounds like there aren't enough progressives to vote for them. And which 3 to 5 would that be? Bernie Sanders voted for this too, you know?

        I repeatedly claimed that Obama would never propose cuts to social security. I was wrong. Then again, I also claimed, repeatedly, that Rick Perry would win the 2012 Election, and that The Supreme Court would overturn Health Care Reform.
