The Strategic Mistake of a Decade

A return to Bill Clinton is change we can believe in, think again ! ?

Only an insane person would truly think the middle class-only tax bill could return from the dead.

In 2012, I would vote for a yellow dog, but not Obama.

Bill Clinton, at the invitation of Obama, made a push for Obama's tax plan/compromise.


My Question (s) Today

A maxim worth noting : You lose voters trust

Mark my words - Michael Bloomberg is now being set up by the PTB for a 2012 win.

Sanders' Rebuke

"It's a deficit to government but it's not a deficit to people who get to keep their money".

Obama’s base

Mark Madoff Hanged Himself

I disagree with Bernie's position, but I thank him for what he did.

Ponder. If all was reversed and Obama was a Republican, how would his base feel and react,

A strong Republican leader

A gamble Republicans were willing to take (because they don't care)

Unemployment benefits were never a priority for Obama

Would anyone totally against this bill please explain a path to getting a middle class only tax cut

How many here have completely given up on President Obama and will NOT vote for him in 2012?

Good riddance to BashthePresident Underground...

Clinton Refuses to Leave White House
