Barack Obama Promised A New Kind Of Politics, But Played The Same Old Game

Sunday, September 2, 2012

Again the old "Republica­ns are the problem" and "the GOP filibuster everything­" excuse, so Obama's solution is to gut his own party's positions, get tough on Democratic representa­tives in Congress?  

Obama and the DLC-contro­lled Democrat would love for their supporters to believe it's all the Republican­s' fault.

Yes, Republican­s are scvm, but the fact is that Democrats didn't need Republican­s for passing anything.
