Turning Off -- Sunday Edition Deep Thought [UPDATED--Must Read]
I haven't watched one of the Sunday talk shows in about a month, and I seem to be a generally happier person.
I have no interest in enduring an hour of Russert's smile while he bounds through this complete nonsense passing as a new Obama scandal as if it raises a completely legitimate, important point.
I wish Obama would make (would have made) one tweak in his statement. It's not that people are bitter in general (though maybe they are). It's that they're bitter *toward the Democrats* for failing to govern in a way that looks after their interests.
[UPDATE: via Kos, Read Robert Reich. The whole post is powerful and on point.
UPDATE 2: Here, by the way, are Obama's remarks in question with a bit more context.]
