I was very worried that because of Democratic and Progressive timidity all was lost in 2012 as obstructionist policies by the GOP/Tea Party continued against what was left of the Obama agenda. I must admit that even before any of their new cohorts are seated I am feeling a confidence I did not have before the 2010 midterm elections.
One of the signature items the Tea Party waged against was deficits and in that light earmarks. With many of the Tea Partiers already taking earmarks and stepping back on all the rhetoric they expounded about many other issues, it is only a matter of time before all but the indoctrinated realize they have been had .
Notably absent is there support for their star, Sarah Palin whose popularity launched many of their successes. When asked of Sarah Palin’s qualifications for the presidency most have abstained as if they are one step away from throwing her to wolves.
Notwithstanding a mortgage/banking collapse which I think the Feds will avert by continuing to inflate the number of dollars in the system without penalty giving Europe’s week currency & economy, our economy will be limping along fast enough to bolster the President. If the President’s fortunes are positive, he is likely to have coat tails.
So Progressive need not despair. This rough patch allows all Americans a small window to again peak at supply side policies. It should remind them why they went progressive after 30 years of the middle class being pilfered by the wealthy, the plutocrats, & the oligarchs.
