Hypocrites on the left and right
Rachel Maddow seems pretty pleased about the low attendance at recent Tea Party rallies. Well, if she thinks the turnout there is small, she should try to find an anti-war rally.
The Progressive movement is proving to be worse than useless to people who are genuinely concerned about war and the destruction of our civil liberties. If they were in the streets in response to Bush's unconstitutional warmongering, massive military spending, domestic spying, and obliteration of the 4th Amendment, where are they hiding now that Obama is upping the ante on all of the above?
It's because many of them have no ideological basis for their beliefs. Like Republicans who pushed socialized medicine under Medicare Part D, gave massive bailouts to failed businesses, and ran up insane debt, they're letting their president get away with anything he wants, based on nothing other than partisanship.
