It is becoming increasingly clear that there are people on the political Left and political Right in this country who seem to be divorced from reality. They are much more comfortable living in an illusion than in reality. We can't change reality if we are not living in it.

To the Left's ideologues, Barack Obama is a Wall Street charlatan who sold us down the river by enacting a "weak-kneed" financial reform law that just also happens to be the strongest such regulation since the 1930s.

They might be in for a little surprised at today's open embrace by Sen. Warren of that very law.
