1. I am really tired of some people...

...not understanding how politics works. I heard this show and was mildly disgusted.

Why is it that the President gets pilloried on the left AND the right. The hatred of this man is palpable.

People need to grow up and understand how politics works, how legislation is passed, and how long it takes a superpower like the United States to make even small changes in the culture, the law, and the power relationships.

Every politician in transactional. They work for their constituents. In the case of the President, his/her constituency is the whole country.

If West and Smiley think they can change the world, let them run for office and do it. I think they would both be in for a rude awakening.

BTW, where is Cynthia McKinney right now?

Barbara Lee or the late Barbara Jordan is Cynthia McKinney done right.
