And this fellow, the one who looks regularly like the buffoonish class clown among a group of eighth grade boys, has threatened to insure that Obama is a one term President. Now there is a policy agenda for you! The only thing more disappointing than the capitulations of the Democrats is the vacuity and venality of the Republicans. That may seem like an extreme characterization. But the party has offered not a single plausible economic policy and (to take bu a single for instance) voted uniformly against extending unemployment benefits for those workers who lost jobs as a result of the Republican inspired depression.
