Supreme Court Health Care Law: Justices Come Down Hard On The Mandate

Tuesday, March 27, 2012


neo conservatives and progressives are the same. Just look at the AHCA. It was a neo con plan vehemently fought by progressives then adopted by obama and vehemently defended by progressives. I find this fascinating and comical and sad at the same time. WTF has happened to America?

======================

How are you defining "progressive"?  

The nearest I come to understanding why anyone believes Obama is a progressive is because Republican political operatives, propagandists, insist on cable programs and on political websites that he is. And they do it because their supporters have been trained to react like hungry dogs when raw meat is dangled in front of them to the words 'liberal', 'progressive' and 'socialism'.

As a well-connected and politically active and involved liberal, neither I nor any left-leaning Democrat or Independent I know believes Obama to liberal, progressive or socialist. Neoliberal, perhaps, (which has nothing to do with liberalism), but "Privately, Obama describes himself as a Blue Dog Democrat".

Blue Dog = (you might as well re-register as a ) Republican

About his own political appeal, Obama has said, “I serve as a blank screen on which people of vastly different political stripes project their own views.”

My own belief is that Obama is just a run-of-the-mill politician in the used-car sense. If he's a one term president, he will have delivered to the CorporateMasters of the universe, and for his loyalty to them he'll be rewarded with great riches from seats on corporate boards.  He'll hand the baton off to Republicans for the fleecing to continue. He will not have reversed the course of the previous administration, just as the administration previous to Bush's (Clinton) didn't reverse the course of HWBush's 'Global Economy'/New World Order and the Reagan-Bush 'trickle down'/Saudi oil empire before that.
