What we need is a "21st Century Full Employment Act for Peace and Prosperity" which would make it a mandatory requirement that the president and Congress attain and maintain full employment.

Are you fed up with this "blame the Republicans" crap when the Democrats are no better?

I think it is a lot of nerve for the Democrats to be playing this "blame the Republican card" seeing as how the Democrats had two years to do whatever they wanted to do.

The American people gave the Democrats the Presidency and both houses of Congress.

Then the Democrats turned around and blamed their own Blue Dogs when Obama resurrected Joe Lieberman's political career.

There are a few Democrats worth supporting--- Obama isn't one of them--- but not more than a few.

Now until Election Day we are going to be hearing how afraid we should be of the Republicans and how we need to vote for these worthless Democrats.

Moveon.org can take their fundraising and shove it.

And then these Democrats are going to tell us Obama stopped the war in Iraq as he pushed us to the brink of World War III with Iran and China as U.S. tax-payers are expected to pick up the tab for private mercenaries who will try to prop up Obama's puppet government in Iraq costing us a good 20 times the price-tag for U.S. troops. 

Of course, Obama has assured his Wall Street business backers that it won't be long before the U.S. working class is on its knees begging to be paid in line with Jamaican, Puerto Rican and Chinese workers as he "challenges" the Wall Street multi-nationals to "bring the jobs back."
Obama and the Democrats deserve to be punished at the polls; Romney won't be any worse.

In 2012 we have two good candidates running for president--- progressive Jill Stein and liberal Rocky Anderson so there shouldn't be any need to even give Obama a second thought.

Besides, Obama can't win anyways... he has been a loser from Day One.

Please note: We need this resolution brought into every precinct caucus in every party---

We have to make it clear that liberals, progressives and leftists have had it with Obama and the Democratic Party.
