    Maybe Ted wants romoney and lyan ryan in the White House? I can’t think of a worse outcome for this election.

    Vacation days? HAHAHAHAHA — Ted is working with disproven rightwing talking points! He really IS Glenn Beck pretending to be a radical!

    Ted always whines about O but I don’t see him offering a viable alternative – certainly not Mr.Magicpants.

    I am noting, like many, many in the opinion press, Mr. Rall conveniently forgets the consistent, treasonous and total opposition tactics the Republican House have used thru out Mr. Obama’s tenure. Mr. Obama has done wonderfully when you consider Repbuliclans have had their collective foot on the brakes for the last three years. They have constantly opposed positions they previously upheld, just to screw Obama, which in turn screws us. Any plan or attempt at recovery has only met with complete opposition and frustration. Rall, Clinton went through the same thing and we still ended up in good shape.

    We have to learn political promises are what the official will hopefully try for, not guarantee delivery. It’s called checks and balances. You might want to do a little research sometime.

    The Republicans did filibuster a lot of legislation, but I don’t think Obama apologists should forget about the blockage of legislation by Harry Reid.

    Rall has said that he hates both Obama and Romney. Fine, that’s his right. And there are reasons to be critical of both. I’d go further and say that it’s very important to criticize Obama. There are times when Rall’s criticism is very much to the point. And times when, in my opinion, it’s way off the mark. He’s not drawing to get a fan club, he’s trying to make people think. So in general I support Rall even when I think he’s gone nuts. I think he’s nuts if he thinks there’s no difference between Obama and Romney.

    Actually I like that solution. He was droning on anyway.

    @cjr53

    False choice. Don’t fall for the two-party trap. Once you understand that real politics is in the street—like in Greece in Spain—you understand that what they call “politics” on TV is just theater.

    @Darsan54

    I’m wondering, how can Obama apologists conveniently forget 2009, when Obama had a supermajority in Congress, high poll numbers and a media honeymoon—yet he didn’t lift a finger to help foreclosure victims? (His own advisors admit that was a conscious decision, and the reason Romney is running such a close race now.) Republicans couldn’t and didn’t block a public option on healthcare. They didn’t block closing Gitmo. They certainly didn’t force Obama to escalate the drone wars. Back in 2009, Obama chose not to act. Voters reacted (stupidly) by voting Republican in 2010, and the blocking that has transpired since then has been Obama’s fault.

    Thank God someone said that.

    Just so. Also, if Obama is 50% as bad as Bush in some respect (less torture?), that doesn’t make him worth reelecting.
