  •  He's an engaging guy, but he's not fully onboard.. (4+ / 0-)

    I'm really tired of these Dems that take horrific positions on crucial issues because it's the "safe thing to do", or in their States best interest only, etc.  It's time for some political bravery; it's time for politicians to do what is right and good, and moral. Morals.... something that is virtually non-existent in D.C. and in the State political structures.

    Imagine if Obama had done the right, moral, and good thing when it came to HCR, or getting Harry Reid to change the filibuster rule, or on drones, or prosecuting the war criminals of the Bush era, and with the thiefs on Wall Street. Imagine what this country could be like if it were even in the ballpark of reaching it's current day potential. It's crazy to think of all the people working in safe, decently paying jobs. The higher tax base that would be available for infrastructure, healthcare, education......

    I'm tired of the lesser of two evils. Simply not willing to play the game anymore. I'm tired of religion, greed, pollution, and excess population because of not having readily available birth control and abortions.

    I'm so glad Obama is our President versus McCain. Absolutely. But in the grand scheme of the potential, he and the Dems have been an enormous disappointment to an awful lot of people. So much wasted human-power, intelligence, natural resources, happiness, health, and bright futures down the crapper because our pols in D.C. (both sides of the aisle) from the top to the bottom rung of the ladder are weak, craven, corrupt, and scared shitless of losing their overly cushy jobs.

    Sorry for the rant.... but I'm really tired right now.

    Corporations before people.... it's the American way!
