    Obama boasts of most 'progressive' political triumphs in decades

    President Obama told a Hollywood fundraiser Monday night that he and congressional Democrats have passed the most progressive legislation in decades.

    "We have been able to deliver the most progressive legislative agenda — one that helps working families — not just in one generation, maybe two, maybe three," Obama said.

    Stimulus wasted, No jobs being created, Massive waste coming out of demo controlled government, the people ready to revolt. And this is a good thing?

    Tell me libs how has anything this administration done, improve this country's outlook?

    He had to bribe a Democrats, particularly Sestak, to get his healthcare bill passed, and he considers himself a success.

    He ran almost solely on turning the ecomony around, and it's gotten many times worse. Already high unemployment is skyrocketing higher. He calls that a success.

    Quite telling.

    He'll go down as the biggest clown to ever reside in the White House.

    Speaking of Sestak, I wonder how that will play out when a repub congress appoints an SP?

    The unemployed are certainly discouraged, but they're only 3 percent of the population, not nearly enough to cause a meaningful revolt.

    Progress typically implies something good has happened.

    1. End the Drug War Failed

    2. Change in Foreign Policy Failed

    3. Shrinking the Police State Failed

    Im seeing a pattern. Im just glad Im still employed.
    Jackboots always come in matched pairs, a left boot and a right boot.
