There is much agony...

...over Craig Becker’s not being confirmed by the senate. And it’s all because the democrats lost their majority in the senate when Ted Kennedy was replaced by a republican. This is a tempest in a teapot because Obama can appoint Becker during recess if he wanted to.

If you want to blame someone blame Obama for he has only himself to blame. I’m not sure anyone as far to the Looney bin right as Obama is has ever described themselves as a progressive before. In his first year Obama managed to alienate many of his former supporters who now see him for the fraud he is. Obama shoved an unpopular war down the American gullet spending money that would have done more good on domestic issues like job creation and real health care reform which is far more important to the public than another dumber than dumb-ass war.

I’ve been saying for years that one of the reasons for off-shoring jobs was to weaken the labor unions which is exactly what it has accomplished. Labor unions have been an engine for a more progressive society so off shoring jobs is not only about cheap non-union labor for higher profit it’s also about removing the influence of labor on government and this has been going on for years. It is always assumed that the democrats are a pro-labor party because of the affiliation of the unions with democratic candidates in the past. But it was Bill Clinton who signed NAFTA into being and millions of Americans have been paying the price ever since.
