George W. Bush

Uhhhh...
This is the inbuilt crisis of tyranny. It fears and fights the very human attributes that make a nation great: creativity, enterprise and responsibility. Dictators can maintain power for a time by feeding resentments toward enemies—internal or external, real or imagined. But eventually, in societies of scarcity and mediocrity, their failure becomes evident.

YOU


FUCK.

"inbuilt"? Is that cromulent?

you have to admit, he knows whereof he speaks.

And thunder? Obama still shut down DADT and managed HCR, weak as it was. While some parts of your syllogism may be apt or at least arguable, I find the equivalency facile.

How about "Not Even Close To Good Enough", zrm?

The unpopularity of ACA (which was written by and for the big corporations involved) was a big reason for the electoral debacles of 2010. That, along with Obama-Geithner trickle-down economics.

So it isn't a matter of "don't let the perfect be the enemy of the good". These policies are failing most Americans. Even if Obama wins in 2012, we'll be looking at President Santorum or some such in 2016.

I don't think a decision can be called "pragmatic" if 1) you compromise your principles, and 2) you get your ass kicked anyways.

P.S. DADT: People who are gay can be openly gay and join the army. Then Obama will send them overseas to blow up little children for corporate profits. And persecute journalists who dare to tell the truth about it.

As a committed coward I always thought that the focus on military service was a really weird item as a left-wing cause.

Me too sub.

Substance, in America there is so much hyperbole and dick waving about the military, that sometimes you have to fight 'em there. too

Think of how soft the chickenhawk's dicks get every time they consider that there are GAY SOLDIERS. Funny.
