Don't Expect an Election to Change Everything

Jason Leopold and Robert Corsini, Truthout: "When Barack Obama was swept into the White House last year on a mandate of hope and change, many progressives believed his arrival meant they could finally roll down their sleeves and wash their hands. But David Swanson was not one of them. Although he voted for Obama, Swanson, author of the recently published book 'Daybreak: Undoing the Imperial Presidency and Forming a More Perfect Union,' predominantly about the Bush years, told Truthout that 'people have gone through this foolish cycle of expecting an election to change everything and then being disappointed and discouraged that it didn't.'"

The Folks Who Missed the Bubble Want Your Social Security

Dean Baker, Truthout: "If you fail disastrously at most jobs, you get sent packing. But, there are different rules for Washington policy wonks. The same crew who could not see the $8 trillion housing bubble that wrecked the economy are convening in Washington this week to hatch new schemes to take away people's Social Security and Medicare in the name of 'fiscal responsibility.'"

Ping pong politics

Liberty For All
by Lady Liberty

02/16/10

Over a few games of beer pong (yes, really), I got a chance to talk a little politics with a couple of college students this past Thanksgiving holiday weekend. It was no surprise to find that their view of Barack Obama was fairly positive since that demographic is almost overwhelmingly both Democrat and supportive of Obama’s campaign and presidency. … Yes, Barack Obama seems to be a pretty smart guy but he’s sure doing some stupid things!...
