  •  it's not Obama (0+ / 0-)

    Obama has never been the problem.  The problem has always been that we simply do not have a liberal progressive party.  Anywhere. The Dems are just Republican-Lites. They are not on our side, and have no interest in being on our side.

    And there things stand.  (shrug)

    •  I disagree (5+ / 0-)

      Yes, Dems have always had a pro-corporate conservative wing in the party, but there's never been a Dem POTUS who has worked so thoroughly and maintained such laser-like focus on transforming the Democratic Party into a corporate financed tool for conservative policy.

      Obama and friends have taken the tired old Reganomics policies embraced by groups like DLC/Third Way etc. polished them and elevated them to the highest level in Dem Party history.

      Fortunately, these policies are still as shitty as they ever were and either fail immediately or eventually to capture public support.  But Obama has done real damage to the Dem Party (and to the country as well) by pursuing bad public policy.  

      It was pervasive the damage will be long lasting, but we'll eventually get it cleaned up.  To be fair, I wish he would relinquish his stranglehold on the national party now and let us begin rebuilding it.
