    Those poor helpless Europeans. According to many commenters on this thread they are all victims of Obama. Frankly it sounds like one of those kooky conspiracy theories you hear on republican presidential debates.

    I have problems with many of the things Obama has done but I still prefer him over any of the republican candidates. And blaming Obama for a second recession caused by failures of the Europeans is just bizarre.

    Cameron did the right thing but for the wrong reasons.

    In order for the euro to work countries must give up significant national powers and hand them over to the EU. The national elites, other than the elites in the UK, may be in favor of this but their populations will raise holy hell if an implementation were to actually begin. There are two saving graces in this action. The first is that the EU parties are experts at passing regulations that sound good and then ignoring them. The second saving grace is that the EU parties action may kick the can far enough down the road that the economic consequences of the big euro fail may occur late enough that the full economic consequences aren’t felt in the US until after the 2012 election.

    Any new ideas Obama comes up with he has to get past the Tea Party. Given that, nothing Obama comes up with tantalizes me in the least. In fact anything he puts forward is just another opportunity for republicans to take him to the cleaners in a negotiation. The best thing Obama can do for the country is stay away from negotiating with republicans

  • So if the majority of Dems voted against it, why are the dino leaders that voted for it still leaders? Shouldn’t the Dems remove them from the leadership?

  • I stopped giving to the DCCC and the DSCC during the health care bill debate. I won’t give to organizations that give money to people who work against positions I support. Now only individual candidates get my money.
