If you want to know where I stand on Obama and "liberals"

check out these two articles that appeared today: One is by a mainstay of mine, Chris Hedges, on Truthdig, and the other by a fabulous thinker/writer Michael Brenner who, in his HuffPost article, describes present-day "progressive Democrats" as "the kind of people that your mother wanted you to hang out with in high school -- short of Canadian exchange students being available."

Is Obama still a liberal now?

After watching his State of the Union address last evening, I must say no. He's now a full-fledged Clinton, a principle-less schmoozer, an erudite pol without vision, without higher purpose than to get elected again. To quote Ralph Nader, "He's a con man. I have no use for him."
