Carlo commented on the blog post Obama Blames Insufficient Stimulus on Ben Nelson and Olympia Snowe, Suggests FDR was “Irresponsible”
To me the damage is done and our country is doomed to be ruled by a feudalistic system run by the Republicans for the next 50 years. Even as terrible as people here think Obama is, and I do share in many of the complaints, the fact that the electorate would even consider the alternative or stay home and not vote in protest shows that we live in a nation of masochists. I can’t see what can be done to end it. Perhaps the coming complete and irrevocable collapse of the American financial system will truly change things, but I doubt it. Feel free to beat me up, I’m much too tired to feel it or care.
