Pithy Comment

From Ian Welsh in a comment thread at his site, "Obama has a long history of proposing left-wing shit he knows won’t pass, and which if there is any danger of it passing, he will sandbag himself."

Indeed. I wish I had been able to put it as succinctly. It took me several posts, each of them several paragraphs, and he summed it up in one terse sentence.

interesting blog. I particularly enjoyed the section wher it says "Public opinion is irrelevant". A lot of what he says there is true. Politicians really have little to fear from the voters, oops public. ANd the corporations even less so. Thanks Democracy. Isn't America great?
