So, we're going to do it. Commit suicide as a nation. Send ourselves deeper into a recession by laying off people at a time of 10% unemployment. Increase our debt by raising interest rates at a time of large deficits. All in the name of extremism and resentment over poor people having a social safety-net.That and a total failure to understand the things taught in Econ 101 at every University in the nation.
Has there been a more useless president? Spineless or craven, or maybe he really is a conservative after all.
How can we explain such a self-inflicted wound? The media being centralized in the hands of the wealthy is certainly a major factor. But I do not understand Obama at all. I never thought he was a progressive, or a visionary. But I did expect him to fight.
