You'd think that they know by now that the corporate-owned media is not their friend too. Of course, it doesn't help that our side is perpetually drowned out by all of the distortion, lies, propaganda. OTOH we all seem to have a basic understanding of the problems that we're facing but nobody seems to be doing anything about it, at least as far as we know.
Where is our leadership? I thought that DWS was going to be a major a**-kicker at first but I feel like I don't hear much from her anymore. I don't have cable, though, so I don't how much she is (or isn't) on the air. Is she on much? What is she doing?
I thought that once Bush was out of office that things would be getting back on track but it seems like we're getting swamped with another wave of Republican idiocy and retrenchment.
I don't seriously believe that President Obama will be defeated next year but if we don't have a majority in the House and some way to defeat the Republican perpetual filibuster machine, what kind of enduring change do we hope to accomplish? Bill Clinton had approximately 2 years to get his agenda through before he got locked down by a Republican majority for the remaining 6 years of his Presidency. I'd hate to see that happen to President Obama but it's like history is inexplicably repeating itself.
I feel like screaming!
