Just came back from an Organizing for America recovery house meeting.
It was half twelve-step support group (hi, my name is Andy and I/my brother/my friend just lost his job/pension/savings), and half organizing a response to the Republican nonsense machine.
The outrage against the way Republicans had made a mockery of this recovery bill (while the country burns) is boiling over. I’m talking pitchforks.
I’m probably giving him too much credit, but it almost feels like Obama’s bipartisanship little stint was (among other things) a way to rally his own troops.
We’ll see this week just how much of a backlash there is against the dittoheads.
