Is the love affair with President Barack Obama truly over?   It is if you read Ted Rall’s latest opinion piece!  Rall writes one of the most scathing critiques of the first two years of the Obama administration, which would be standard if he was a Republican — but Rall is one of the nations […]

I have been a Democrat since I registered to vote in 1991.  However, in July of 2010, I switched my affiliation to Independent after the Congress and the President (who formed a unprecedented super majority) failed to pass any true progressive legislation.  So, I am rather amazed when I read an opinion piece like,  “Which […]

Change You Can Believe In? #election2010 #tcot #progressive

There is a rip in the force when Sen Jim DeMint (R, SC) and liberal Markos Moulitsas from Daily Kos agree on the results of an election.  Both of these men believe that one thing is clear from the results of Tuesday evening — establishment power is losing the control it once had over the […]
