I’m so happy that Keith is back on the air! Current TV needs a little better online delivery system, but I can at least watch it in pieces. Last night’s special comment was awesome. His interview with Al Gore is worth watching too.
If you are expecting some kind of red meat call to primary President Obama, or a withdrawal of support, I’m afraid it’s not as simple as that. It seems to me that given the choice between a Democratic president in 2013 and a Republican one – possibly one who is certifiably insane – I’m going to choose the Democratic one every time. I don’t think a primary helps anybody but the GOP, and I don’t think it even addresses the real problem that is suddenly starkly clear after this disaster.
The system is broken, and even when there are good politicians, they are not allowed to get anything done. Our government doesn’t run this country, corporations do…until that hold is broken, this is what we have. It will take a revolution.
