    Is he correct? You betcha. So how about you self labeled 'Independents' offer an idea or two on the best action plan. I for one am a bit tired of "ain't if awful" and "shrink government" posts. Something pragmatic, thought provoking and thought out would be appreciated?

    the ratigan rant was outstanding. i have no idea how that guy's still on the air, i'm expecting him to get replaced by an establishment drone any day now.

    i think he's right, the first thing that needs to happen is obama or somebody in power needs to use the bully pulpit and call these plutocrats out by name, vigorously, and explain clearly and honestly what happened to cause this collapse. once he does that maybe people's perceptions will change. no one else is gonna do it. congress isn't going to do it.

    What the hell are you talking about? Obama's already told us sho caused the mess: Bush, the Tea Party, Conservatives, ATM's, Wall Street, gridlock, etc.

    What else do you want him to say?

    :lol:

    strangely, i think you got it. he needs to be more specific, and he needs to name names, and he needs to explain the exact way congress has become bought by special interests.

    hey, don't get me wrong, i don't think he's going to do that. but at least his base and independents can pressure him. a republican president isn't EVER going to get pressured by a conservative base to expose a corrupt system. last republican to do that was dwight eisenhower.

    can you imagine? if obama gave his own version of eisenhower's retirement speech?

    Obama can never get "more specific". He is all smoke and mirrors, all about stating generalities that get liberal's emotions going. He can't give specifics because there are none. All the facts show his policies are nonesense and don't work.

    MSNBC is one of the biggest losers on TV. Witness their latest coup. Al Sharpton, a racist, bigiot, tax cheat, censured congressman and general embarrassment to himself and any one who call him friend. This is the caliber of individual that MSNBC is looking for.

    I don't understand why people are calling it a "rant".

    well, he could, but you're right, he probably won't.

    his rhetoric doesn't really seem to be directed toward liberals. he takes our vote for granted. he's after moderates. he thinks if he can keep compromising and splitting the baby, he can squeak by on a second term, esp. if the pubs nominate some fringe guy.

    yeah, we learned his policies didn't work when bush tried them. now obama's trying them, and they're continuing not to work.
