One of my biggest disappointments since Obama’s election has been not just Obama’s despicable betrayal of Democratic ideals, but liberals and Democrats’ complete willingness to overlook those ideals simply because he’s nominally a member of the same team. Conservatives did the exact same thing when Bush was president, but I had really hoped progressives were better than that.
When loyalty trumps principles, those principles become meaningless. And right now neither party has any recognizable principles other than supreme executive power and blind loyalty to moneyed interests.
