Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The flap over the FISA issues are only the very latest indications on how badly the system itself is broken.  Many people do not want to grasp this concept, blinded by the fact that Obama represents the non-Bush.

Ferchrissake, i know Nancy Pelosi personally, and for decades i've always admired and appreciated her stands. I was thrilled when she became Speaker. I'm appalled at what she's done with it.

Discussing what's broken with politics and the economy in amurka is worthy of a series of well-researched diaries, to which i wish i could contribute.  There's lots of debate about whether, and to what degree, the system itself is broken.

For me, based uponmy life's experience, it's broken beyond repair... which means only trauma can rebuild it.
