Here is the problem with “progressives” of your stripe.
You don’t yet understand that the current power center of the Democratic Party is aligned with the Corporate State as are all Republicans.
That’s why Wellpoint essentially wrote the ACA out of Baucus’s office in the Senate through the corporate servicing hand of Liz Fowler.
Corporate State Democrats, including Saint Obama scammed the US citizenry over the so-called “public option” that was in reality never an option to begin with. The scheming Corporate State servicing Obama made certain of that.
NDAA? Obama gets a pass on this from you?
How about letting the Frackers write the fracking rules. That was okay with you?
How about Obama blocking any criminal investigation or prosecution of torturers in the CIA, Pentagon, or the architects of it? He prosecuted the CIA torture whistleblower, Kiriakou. You okay with that too? He also prosecuted and jailed more whistleblowers than all other Administrations combined.
He also oversaw the treatment of whistleblower Chelsea Manning’s TORTURE, and made that good human being SUFFER before finally acting to set her free.
Oh yes, the Republicans made him do it!
They also made Obama set up a fucking Cat Food Commission to come up with insidious ways to cut Social Security benefits, right. They made him appoint longtime Social Security enemy Alan Simpson to head it.
How about Obama along with other Corporate State Democrats blocking any criminal investigation into the many crimes of the Bush Administration, including leading a nation to war based on demonstrable lies. Nope, he Nancy Pelosi, and even Bernie Sanders would have none of it.
Ending decades long moratorium on oil exploration in large areas off the Atlantic Coast? Obama!!!
Now Obama will make his rounds as a superstar advancing corporate power.
But I watch FOX for all of this, which is the typical response from those venturing to Common Dreams from Daily Kos, when there is any criticism of the Corporate State Democrats for who, and what they really are.
