Sen. Joe Manshin (D WV), is seen here pondering the new jobs bill from Pres. Obama. Manshin: “I have serious questions about the level of spending that President Obama proposed.” Turns out the War on America Gang in the House has a powerful ally in the Senate . . . DEMOCRATS. So-called “Blue Dogs”, “centrists”, etc. They not only mimic Republican talking points but adopt their philosophy, that tax increases are always wrong, no matter how unequal the deal. Obama is weak and in a box. The Congress is owned and operated by corporate interests who are outlawing the truth. What the overwhelming consensus of economists of all stripes is (that we need more stimulus) doesn’t matter when it is surrounded by media, the Republican Party and here, Democrats who want to live in what they think is a safe pre-recession fantasyland.
Obama never really sized up his enemies. Now we see he doesn’t even understand his friends.
