Watching today's 'filibuster' by Senator Sanders, I was struck by how similar Obama's treatment of the left is to the discipline the character Little Alex metes out to his wayward droogies in Anthony Burgesses' A Clockwork Orange. After all, when has the right ever had to do any real work (like being forced to speak fro 8.5 hours)? They talk, Obama walks. But the left? he won't even negotiate with them.
Obama is little Alex personified.
