Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
... election coming up and the corporations would like nothing more than for the focus of the netroots to be on a question where we can have no impact whatsoever, when there is work to be done in primarying Blue Dogs, backing progressives and pseudo-progressives who went to far in the eyes of corporations, and trying to send obstructionist "Republicans" down to defeat.

I don't accept the frame in the first place that the point at issue is whether or not Obama is doing well. The question is how well the Congress is doing and how well we are preparing for the task of forcing them to do better.

I've been accused of being a Marxist, yet while Harpo's my favourite, it's Groucho I'm always quoting. Odd, that.
