Why do progressives hate America so much?

Add John Podesta to the list of haters:

John Podesta, president of the Center for American Progress, can describe the state of Washington politics with a single word. And it’s not a nice one.

Asked in an interview with the Financial Times to comment on “the health of American political system,” Podesta responded: “Sucks.”

Podesta made the remark with a chuckle, but the man who chaired President Obama’s transition team expressed deep concern about the White House’s ability to pass big ticket items in the current political climate.

He blamed much of the gridlock on Republicans and a newly “strengthened” conservative movement.

Shorter John Podesta: “Why can’t you ignorant rubes and just shut the f**k up and let us pass our radical agenda?”

You can really sense the frustration and anger bubbling up in the progressive elites.  They’re underlying cynicsm of American government and democracy in general is finally coming out as they’re seeing a groundswell of opposition to their agenda.  They can’t help it.  And like I’ve been saying, the list is long and getting longer.
