    huh?  Maybe you missed it, but your heart throb Hillary is the Secretary of State of the Obama administration you clearly loathe.  It would be nice if you actually respected her enough to actually follow her lead.

    I'm reminded of the scar-faced divisional General Paul Mireau in Paths of Glory who was so frustrated with his troops failure to assault the Ant Hill that he orders his cannons to fire on his own troops.  Enough with the "friendly fire" already.  If you can't tell the difference in the values between a president who appoints Sonia Sotomayor to the Supreme Court and another who appointed Samuel Alito, you should be kicked to the curb of intelligent discourse.  

    If the worst thing Obama is, is a "Corporatist," and I don't necessarily think he is, it's a far cry from the fascists tea party republicans that appear to be ascendant.  Stop shooting at the non-contrarians that aren't moving as fast as you want.  Start shooting at the fascists that are holding us all back.

    I'm having a hard time distinguishing your rants, Jerome, (and the other race baiting rants, I now see here) from those of the lunatic tea partiers.  Like the old song, "If you go carrying pictures of Chairman Mao, you ain't gonna make it with anyone anyhow." I recall not so long ago when Bush was president, we couldn't even get an expansion of the SCHIP program done.  Whatever the faults of the health care reform, we passed a monumental health care reform bill into law that will have real benefits to real people.  I am supposed to think that is a failure?   What do you think a McCain/Palin administration would like?  Would we have had any progress on health care (or even a debate)?  Would we have gotten any attention to changing DADT?  Which from where I am standing, I see Obama fighting for... are we only on the side of our leaders when they are winning?  Instead of fighting a covert war in Pakistan with drones, we would have boots on the ground in Iran.  Or we would be belligerent to China in hot spots like the the South China Sea or with Russia or Georgia, or wherever...  And the difference is that while Obama may be no raging liberal in the mold of FDR (not that there has been one as POTUS in my life time), he is not a fascist, and that is what the Republican Tea Partiers are.  If you can't tell the difference, you are no better.
