Democrats' fault

The AIG "retention" bonus scandal is the Democrats' fault, no ifs, ands, or buts about it. They had the power to prevent it, and they took just such a measure out.

Never mind that the Bushists in the fall were just as bad. I voted for change from that dismal, corrupt bunch, and this doesn't qualify.

Let's see what they do about it.

(One lesson to remember: In America, executive compensation is not about performance. It's about sweetheart deals. The government should be preventing those - they're bad for capitalism.)

We saw inklings of this in Fall 2009, and now it's really starting to flourish.

The liberals are abandoning Obama with him spending over a year in government with not one of his liberal agenda policies passed.

Instead Obama is funneling money to rich bankers, watering down healthcare so that it doesn't improve the system, and trying to cut deals with Republicans.

Obama is a disgrace. I do not a know of a politician in history who had abandonded his own base and been so unpopular like Obama is right now.

Obama's not actually that unpopular. Lots of us liberals are still with him, despite our disappointment. We're hopeful people, maybe too hopeful.

I'm a big follower of the liberal talk show The Young Turks. They ruthlessly attack Obama for being in bed with the bankers and speculators. The host, Cenk Uygur, scoffed at his progressive audience, 'Change? You voted for change? What change?'
