  • Johnson did.. Maybe Roosevelt, or Wilson did. Doesn't matter. Obama is playing the role he was given. And the people chant when the director says, "Action!" In all social hierarchies we see a common mode of failure. Authority, left unattended, will become corrupt. This appears to be an absolute. And the cycle will repeat.

  • The damage was done by the DLC/Clinton/Third Way sellout of the 90s, enabled by the mushy middle and third world sweatshops.
