The conservatives hate anybody who isn't a conservative. They will not cooperate with anyone except one of their own. They don't care about America--certainly they don't care about the principles on which it was founded. They care only about power and wealth. They have their own media empire making up stories, leading the cheers, and pounding home the propaganda in shorter and shorter sound bytes for their knuckle dragging supporters. I am disappointed in Obama, but I'm also disappointed with the Blue Dog Democrats who stood in his way. A unified democratic party should have simply tried to roll back all the changes the Bushies made. The GOP is unified. I don't know if they get their marching orders from the RNC or Rupert Murdoch, but they are marching in step. Obama and his party have squandered their turn in power, and they may not get another. Still, if he is the nominee next time around, I will vote for him and work for his campaign because either a Democrat or a Republican will win, and the Republicans will roll back the New Deal if they can.
As Sinclair Lewis once wrote, "When Fascism comes to America, it will be carrying a cross and wrapped in the flag."
