Taibbi hits the nail on the head…

The always excellent Matt Taibbi hits the nail on the head:

Anyone who wonders why the Obama administration seems to be bending over so far backwards to appease conservatives and industry leaders in the health care debate and Wall Street in the financial regulatory reform debate can find their answer there: those groups make Obama pay for their financial/political support with real actions and policy concessions, while Obama’s “base” will continue their feverish support in exchange for mere gestures and marketing hocus-pocus, for news about the new family puppy or an appearance on Jay Leno.

That’s a pretty profound point. If we don’t ask, frankly demand, something of Obama, that’s what we’re going to get – nothing.
