In the greatest offer of bipartisanship Obama gave away the government.
Tim Kaine was NOT the person for the chair of the DNC.
Honestly, I'm too disgusted to continue.
Tonight is the fitting cap to 8 years of hard work.
You couldn't even hold the house for 2 years ... very good, sir.
They really don't want to win in 2012 do they?

4. Kaine is a failure. Obama needs to force him out and replace him with Alan Grayson.ThomCat Donating Member (1000+ posts) Click to send private message to this author Click to view this author's profile Click to add this author to your buddy list Click to add this author to your Ignore list Tue Nov-02-10 11:37 PM

18. That would be nice, but it won't happen.
This administration has shown repeatedly that they do not like the left.
The only people Obama openly insults, repeatedly, are the left. Grayson is firmly part of the left, and admirably so.
Obama wouldn't have anything to do with Howard Dean. In part because Dean was part of the radical left, and used resources liberally to support the left. Obama supported the idea of using resources judiciously to only support "viable candidates" that that meant only candidates who had the approval of corporate backers (the money primary) rather than the base.
Obama wouldn't allow anyone from the left to participate in the Health Care discussions. He blocked everyone from the progressive caucus entirely from having any role entirely.
He has nobody from the left end of the spectrum anywhere on his economic team. Or on his foreign policy team.
How much more evidence does anyone need that Obama does not want anything to do with the the left, does not respect the left, and will not work with the left?thunder rising (1000+ posts) Wed Nov-03-10 03:25 AM

33. Agreed. The Administration does not like the left, but that's the base. Who else you gonna call?
It has nothing to do with what "simple people could understand", it's what makes the most sense, costs the least and has the most potential to help the most people who need the help.hollowdweller Donating Member (1000+ posts) Tue Nov-02-10 11:36 PM

15. Clinton passed an unpopular gun control bill
Obama passed an unpopular health care bill.
He should have stood on principle and simply passed one that allowed a public option, forbid insurance companies from denying coverage for prexsisting conditions, and lifting of caps without all the deal making and other stuff. Something simple people could understand.
It's what the Republicans wanted to do, so of course it is what Obama and the liberals refused to do. They wanted nothing less than total control and power.

12. Let me add: Bush was handed financial surplus and turned it into deficits. What happened here?
Obama took a thriving party and quashed it.
