Some nuance is being lost here. There were some significant differences between Obama/Biden and Bush/Cheney. Just one for instance…Obama tried to close Gitmo and his own party blocked him. Yep, the DEMOCRATS blocked the closing of Guantanamo.The Republicans NEVER blocked Bush/Cheney from doing one darn thing. To be blocked by the duopoly of the oligarchs indicates that one must at least be “trying” to do something right.
