    That was one slick bait-n-switch.

    Except, of course, to the 49% who wisely saw through it.

    A lot of work went into the health plan, they just want to see what they got for their effort.

    An up close view is the best view.

    It would be nice to think that a mere election could change this, but I doubt that either party will ever give up any of the powers that become available to them once they achieve the white house. An Oligarchy is gov’t by the few. We have gov’t by the two – the two parties who compete with each other for majorities, but work together to keep themselves in power and any third or fourth parties from gaining any real foothold.
    It is not what the founders hoped we would do.
    Respectfully,
    C.

    1984 and Atlas Shrugged were not supposed to be how to manuals.

    In the words of Thomas Jefferson—“A government that is big enough to give you everything you want is also a government big enough to take away everything that you have”.

    “In a word, I was too cowardly to do what I knew to be right, as I had been too cowardly to avoid doing what I knew to be wrong.”
    ― Charles Dickens, Great Expectations

    People had “great expectations” when Obama was elected …. again. The problem is that you had NO IDEA what he ment when he said his goal was to “fundamentally transform” our country, Now you do.

    Here’s a little quote from the NYT this morning:

    Representative Jim Langevin, a Rhode Island Democrat on the Intelligence Committee, said on Monday that among those in Congress who are most informed, the consensus was strong and bipartisan. “Those who have been fully briefed are comfortable with the capabilities used, the way they have been used and the due diligence exercised in making sure the agency responsible for carrying out and using the tools has been doing so within confines of the law,” he said. “There is nothing nefarious going on here.”

    I don’t post this to defend Obama. I don’t defend Obama on this. Here’s what I think: the fix is in, and both parties are in on it. Opposition has to come from outside the party system.

    @wolfhoundblues1

    @californicated1

    Words with limited truth….
    And definitions are missing..
    Generalities do not cut it…

    @Ms. Ima

    So, Ima.. …………………….
    Informed voters = conservatives
    UNinformed voters = liberals
    And you believe this ???

    @lonecat

    Opposition to what ?
    intelligence
    common sense
    consensus
    knowledge

    I suspect that scandals are being manufactured, not “mined”.
    Our sensationalist press needs something to work with; the people need some “entertainment”..

    Many of us did see through the glowing rhetoric but unfortunately far too many simply went “ga-ga” about the color of his skin (not the content of his character).
