Suicide watch

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.
