  •  I must say I'm a big fan of his corporate (14+ / 0-)

    lite policies.  He's using corporate money and influence to promote many Progressive policies- green energy is flourishing, manufacturing jobs are returning, genuine job creators are partnering with community colleges to train and then hire the people with the skills they need.  Crowd-funding new businesses is probably the source of much of the current growth in employment.  Everything he does in working with corporations is part of his vision to grow a real Middle Class based in non-service non-low-wage jobs.  There are some visionaries left in US business, people who can foresee fossil fuels as actual dinosaurs, people who know that a living wage means a stronger economy, people who know Obamacare will cut the stranglehold health care costs have on businesses.  The changes are less dramatic than immediately arresting all Wall Street CEO's, and they'll actually lead to long-term progressive change.  I don't care if Jamie Dimon goes to jail.  I care that his business practices be completely discredited.  Until that happens bright new CEO's will stay in the pipeline, collect their blood money and switch from horse to horse on the merry-go-round. Same with Cheney- I want him so pointless he can't buy an election for his daughter and so powerless he can't save Halliburton from restitution payments that beat the shit out of his retirement funds.  

    I'm not looking for a love that will lift me up and carry me away. A love that will stroll alongside and make a few amusing comments will suffice.
