This strikes me as a horrendously bad idea. Back to a welfare state then, eh? I thought we had a progressed as a movement to the point where we were lobbying for regulated capitalism, not just giving money away for the hell of it.
And don't preach to me about Wall Street getting bailouts. You're not talking about a bailout for main street. You're talking about an indefinite program of wealth redistribution not tied to any contingencies. Money for nothing.
How does anyone even know Dean is in the running? I'd definitely support him, but Obama has strangely seemed to distance himself throughout the whole transition process. Plus, a lot of the Clintonistas working in the Obama administration are no doubt still pissed at Dean for imagined slights during the primaries.
When the messenger only shows up to do a drive-by hit job on Obama every so often, after spending months advocating for McCain/Palin, I would have to disagree with you. Those people are not taken seriously. Nor should they be. Hi Nancy!
You're right, of course. But even if he is, he'll likely get off. These guys never seem to do any time. It reminds me of that old Rage Against the Machine song.. "the pig whose free to murder one shaclack"
To say merely that Gupta "mishandled" the Sicko report is a gross understatement. Did you watch the segment? He showed his true colors as a shill for big pharma, which as it happens, advertises heavily on cnn.
I criticized Feinstein too because it appears her criticism was based on her own sense of self-importance. Conyers is spot-on on this one.
Primadonna Feinstein should shut the hell up. Why is it that every time we get in power, the back-stabbing begins? We saw it with Clinton, and now we'll see it with Obama. Say what you want about Republicans. At least they know how to tow the party line when in power in order to advance an agenda.
