Even the Kos ventured only a little tiny criticism — and immediately defended himself, like a child anticipating a scolding, from his liberal parents. And he assured the readers that he will vote for Obama anyway.
This is very definitive, unequivocal campaign promise. Why is he not out there with the Wisconsin protesters? And in Indiana? And in Ohio?
And what happened to the White House Middle Class Task Force, chaired by Vice President Biden.
I know some Kossacks will accuse me of Obama bashing. But Obama spoke very strongly about standing up for bargaining rights and for the middle class. I have every right to question why he’s not out there in those comfortable shoes.
Yes, I will vote for him again. But really. Don’t build up my hopes if you’re not going to follow through.
Why should any politician keep his promises to us if we guarantee him reelection when he betrays us on even the most fundamental principles?
Why aren’t we looking for either a better candidate or a better/new party, so we can get what these phonies promised?
Why can’t we even bring it up? Or bring it up, but cringing and apologizing?
This is incredible.
And you posters who like to distract the discussion with your forays into endless side arguments grinding through minor/irrelevant details or pretending you don’t understand the implications of the message (you know who you are), please hold it just this once, so we can address the central issue here:
