In other news, a federal judge upheld a ruling today which allows federal funding of embryonic stem-cell research to continue, and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced that it will begin the process of reviewing - and possibly removing - the decades-old policy of banning blood donations from homosexual and bisexual men.

    Isn’t this the same President who pushed to renew the Bush tax Cuts?

    Most liberals have seen that President Obama is an obvious trojan-horse pushing Republican policy. The Reps and Dems are (overwhelmingly) one single party of, by and for the rich.

    This site and the media can still scream that there are two different trees; but, American can’t “un-see” the forrest. Obama and his party of third-way corporate shills are sinking. Maybe that’s not so very bad. Look at Wisconsin. It took a Republican shock to bring the old-school dems back to life.

      If your “old-school dems” would have shown up for the mid-term elections, rather than sitting home and pouting about not getting a pony, then President Obama would have the backing to push for more progressive policies and actions now. As it is, he’s forced to compromise to get anything done.
