Greider suggests looking elsewhere

The Nation magazine columnist and economist William Greider has written a very important article which ought to wake progressives up to the reality that the President is no longer our guy. What we don't need is a primary challenge to Obama. What we do need is Ron Paul to give up on the idea that GOP voters are going to give him the respect he deserves. Libertarians and progressives both need to suspend their dreams of enacting anything with less than a super majority. We get nothing over the next 5 years if we can't form this coalition. The deal is simple and progressives in power need to grab Dr. Paul and hash it out: Major cuts in the empire with savings split evenly between  debt reduction and peaceful green infrastructure. Here's the article: http://www.thenation.com/article/162337/obamas-bad-bargain#comment-884415
