oh sure.Last week, Democratic senators broke their tradition of deference to the Obama White House and publicly pushed back against the president of their own party. Specifically, they went public with demands that the president back off his proposals to slash Social Security and Medicare.
Similarly, the day after one Democratic senator (Ron Wyden) stood with Rand Paul’s filibuster and just three Democratic senators voted against Brennan’s nomination, the Congressional Progressive Caucus released a scathing letter slamming the administration for its civil liberties and drone-war atrocities. This was backed in spirit by a Washington Post op-ed by Obama confidante John Podesta, who almost never dares to criticize the Democratic president.
Anyone else find this interesting?
so i bet that those Dems are going to win their reelection bids.
and that other thing....
Appearing on Fox’s Happening Now this morning, former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton took to defending President Obama‘s program of targeted assassinations of Americans abroad, calling it what it is: an extension of Bush-era policies.
“It seems to me that the approach that the Obama administration is following is consistent with and really derived from the Bush administration approach to the War on Terror,” Bolton told host Jenna Lee.“And I think it is entirely sensible. Whether it is foreign citizens who are involved with Al Qaeda or American citizens, we are in a war. They have attacked us. We have a congressional authorization to use military force in response. And that’s what’s at stake here.”
FOX and Bolton. what more do we need to know?
