I don't mind Samantha Power getting a job in the Administration, but that's only because Hillary Clinton has okayed it. Power deserved to get booted for her "monster" comment. (And I won't forget her remark that Ohio Democrats were "obesessed" with NAFTA. God forbid the poor bastards worry about THEIR jobs.)
I don't think I'm an extemist. I just don't like Republicanism, and I think it needs to be confronted. If not now, when?
Paul Krugman today pointed out the centrality of health care reform to fixing our economy, and he's right. Every minute Obama wastes talking about "bipartisanship" is a minute he could be spending moving us forward.
I hope Obama knows what he's doing, but I think he's wrong. That's why I didn't support him. I stand by my position that unnecesary Republican congressional votes do harm to the country. And my "made-up" quote from Axelrod was just that--made-up. I never pretended otherwise.
I like MYDD, but I know it's regimented. That's why I started my own crappy blog:
STERNLY WORDED LETTERS
Please come and insult me there. (We're really on the same side--I just HATE Republicans more than you do!)
