D "liberal" litmus tests for Obama don't include action on jobs
[Welcome, Confluence readers! --lambert]
The liberals are watching three big tests over the next month to see whether the president is firmly in their corner: extending Bush-era tax cuts that are set to expire Dec. 31, ratifying a new nuclear-arms treaty with Russia and repealing the "don't ask, don't tell" policy on gays in the military.
Nothing on jobs at all, or foreclosures, or the banks. Quelle surprise. If you didn't know that the Ds threw the working class under the bus in 2008, now you really know it, eh?
Of course, there's nothing on jobs because permanently higher DISemployment is the policy options fully supported by both legacy parties. And of course there's nothing on foreclosures because "extend and pretend" is also fully supported by both legacy parties. And there's nothing at all on prosecuting bankster criminals -- sorry for the redundancy -- let alone breaking up the Too Bigger To Fail banks so we don't have another crash, because the banksters own both legacy parties, and Versailles, too.
NOTE And, oh yeah, no Social Security cuts isn't a litmus test either. Gawd, the Ds suck.
