Here's What A DEMOCRAT One-Percenter Sounds Like

No offense, George. But there are 16 million unemployed in this country (20 to 25 million, if you count those who stopped looking for work in this Depression of 2011, as Paul Krugman describes it), 45 million with no health insurance, hundreds of thousands living on the brink of homelessness, 1-in-4 children who don't have enough to eat, and you give us this Hollywood smack about what a great REPUBLICAN president Mr. Obama is?

That's precisely the point. Mr. Obama is the BEST REPUBLICAN PRESIDENT they could have had if only they could look past his skin tone. He has given away deep cuts in every one of our most treasured social safety net programs, the Big Three — Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid — wrapped in a nice little bow for John Boehner, who was incapable of budging the extremist Tea Party zealots in his caucus to sign on and understand they had won, that this was further than all previous REPUBLICAN presidents had dared go before. President Obama is still willing to sell the Big Three down the river so he can get his "Grand, nay, Craven Bargain" for posterity's sake.

The President's favorite TV program is "Homeland." That worries Maureen Dowd. It should also worry Democrats of all stripes. I know for a fact that Homeland is also the preferred program of a card-carrying, Obama-LOATHING wingnut. So Mr. Clooney, stick to movies from now on.
