We’d all love to see the plan
You ask me for a contribution
Well, you know
We’re all doing what we can…
I would hope that somehow the Democrats will learn a lesson from knowing they are going to take a serious beating in November, and do something about it.
They have 8 months to get the progressive and independent votes back.
Plenty of time to create and pass some useful legislation, like a universal single payer HCR bill, and plenty of time to charge, try and begin prosecution of Bush, Cheney, and the rest of the war criminals.
Why, I bet they could even get away with not prosecuting Obama as an accessory after the fact, as long as they prosecute the others, and defund the wars and start REALLY getting out of Afghanistan and Iraq.
And plenty of time to charge, try and prosecute Paulsen, Geithner, Bernanke, and Lloyd Blankfein, and the upper management of AIG, and break up Goldman Sachs.
If they do these things in the next few months they can win November with landslides, and Obama might even win a second term two years down the road.
Making Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac public utilities would be icing on the cake.
Otherwise they are toast. And apparently republicans are worse. Somehow (scratches head in puzzlement).
