That’s right! Don’t worry, stay home in November.
With insults to the base like Obama and Biden are making, that seems to be exactly what they want.
Wow, way to utterly prove their point. Christ almighty, you whine like a pack of children who just got told no ice cream. Your solution is awesome too–you think that they aren’t doing a good job, so you decide to let people who you know to be utterly incompetent take over. What the hell are you drinking?
No, both parties are doing a lousy job. The problems are systemic and both parties are beholden to their corporate overlords.
Charles Gasparino’s new book looks to be on the right track.
“Bought and Paid For: The Unholy Alliance Between Barack Obama and Wall Street“
There was a story on NPR yesterday about how traditional Dem donors on Wall Street have been sitting on their wallets, mostly because of their perceived “slights” like the tepid fin-reg reform, toothless Consumer Protection Agency, and Obama occasionally bad-mouthing them.
And the Dems are terrified because they get some obscenely high amount of money from their Wall St. donors each cycle, and they need the money to hang on to their jobs. Explains a lot, like who their *true* constituency is.
Well, they backed Obama, used him up, now they’re moving on.
With The Republicans, as in ’08 with McCain/Palin, literally throwing the elections to The Democrats with all the freaks coming out of the primaries, The Democrats piss off their base. Hey-zeus on a horseblanket, I don’t need to go to the bookshelf and thumb through my collection of conspiracies research to smell strings attached. Puppet strings… there is Only One Party – speaking ’round a folked tongue and out of both sides of it’s mouth, spouting the Corporate Globalist, The International Bankers and Insurers’, line.
Who you vote for doesn’t mean jack-shit…
Piss on it, my vote was in ’72, when I served my Tour of Duty.
Tweedledum and Tweedledee. Or, as Emma Goldman said, “if voting changed anything, they’d make it illegal.”
It’s still amazing how many folks on both sides will vote for a jackass in their own party rather than let the other guy win.
“Suppose you were an idiot. And suppose you were a member of Congress. But I repeat myself.” – Mark Twain
Though sadly, not idiots– just bought and paid for. Our local GOP candidate for Congress is running around saying how tax cuts for the top 2% are good for middle class America. Uh huh, right. And the Dem incumbent is saying the same thing!!!
