Weak and Wrong

This is getting way too comical but way too not fucking funny.

Obama needs to snap the fuck out of it and Congressional Dems need to remove their heads from their asses.

Bottom line: Obama is not the President I voted for. This man doesn't have my vote in 2012.

Any 'good' that has come from this Presidency is nothing more than the picking of low hanging fruit that any fucking Democrat would of picked if they had been elected Prez.

I did not vote for Obama to pluck low hanging fruit.

Obama needs to: 1. Grow a pair. 2. Get over this bipartisan fetish that continues to destroy this country. Obama's psychotic need to rehabilitate the Republican Party continues to be an utter disaster.

And as a side note: I've heard recent praise of GW Bush and his participation in the Haitian relief efforts.

Are you fucking kidding me?!?

Look, this fucker's policies (and his cult's policies) are one of the reasons Haiti was an utter cluster fuck BEFORE the earthquake. Bush should be under a fucking prison somewhere, not dragged out by Obama to shiny up his horrible past by attempting to make him look like some kind of goddamn statesman. It's like trotting out Timothy McVeigh's corpse to assist with donations to the families killed on the Ok. City bombing.

The man is horrible. And if Kanye has been correct about anything ever.... Bush doesn't give a rats ass about black people, brown people, and, hell, the only white people are rich white people. Fuck Bush Forever.

The only positive I could ever attribute to that SOB is that he got his policies enacted come hell or high water. He passed shit with 51 votes and never had more than 55.

Meanwhile, in Pussyville......

Democrats’ talking points: We can’t pass legislation anymore, despite majority | Raw Story:

"What's more, they've decided to outline their case to the public through a set of talking points issued to Democrats after Tuesday's election upset in Massachusetts.

Their meme? 'It is mathematically impossible for Democrats to pass legislation on our own.'"

Eschaton:

"Shorter Dems

With large majorities in the House and the Senate, and control of the executive branch, we are utterly powerless to do anything.

I'm starting to think these people have no idea what they're doing."
I don't think they know what they are doing either.

Obama should just raise a goddamn white flag outside the White House instead of the American flag.

Fucking pitiful.

Weak and wrong.

Obama, allies now seek pared-down health care bill - Yahoo! News:

"WASHINGTON – Chastened by the Democratic Senate loss in Massachusetts, President Barack Obama and congressional allies signaled Wednesday they may try to scale back his sweeping health care overhaul in an effort to at least keep parts of it alive.
_______

Increasingly out of touch.

I'm not sure if this is by choice or if his staff are keeping him in some type of bubble, but it is apparent that Rahm/Messina and Geitner/Sumners et all need to fucking go and quick.

If Obama had a lick of sense he'd swallow his pride and bring in Howard Dean to run the WH.

Daily Kos: Barack Obama is out of touch.:

"Barack Obama conveyed to Robert Gibbs that he was surprised and frustrated by the Massachusetts race.

One question to our president, 'Are you hiding under a rock?'

This utter statement speaks VOLUMES of Barack Obama.

It says to me, as a friend wrote to me in an email:

What Obama said through Gibbs was that he was 'Surprised and Frustrated' about this election.

What does that say?

'Surprised' = I wasn't listening to the voters

'Frustrated' = Don't blame me"
_______

Seriously. I would be enjoying a Public Option right now.

Dean: Bush would have had healthcare a long time ago | Raw Story:

"Howard Dean seems to be sick of Democrats' bipartisan attitude.

In sharply worded comments Tuesday night following the loss of former Sen. Ted Kennedy's (D-MA) Senate seat, the former chairman of the Democratic Party asserted that party leaders needed to bypass their quest for sixty Senate votes.

“We’ve got to be tougher,' Dean quipped. 'I’ve said the Democrats are not tough enough. Bush would have had the health care bill done a long time ago. He would have gone through reconciliation.”"

_______

Daily Kos: It's time to put Howard Dean back in charge

This'll be a short diary, but I'm about to scream right now and have to vent. Howard Dean is a winner. He understands exactly what the average Democrat stands for and votes for. He also understands exactly how disgusting the right-wing and the Republican Party are. He's not afraid to spread the truth about the right, and if that truth happens to hurt a few wittle wight-wing feewings, well, TOO FUCKING BAD.

What we have now are people that are afraid of their own shadows, let alone the Goddamn Republicans. The WH and the asswipes in the Senate have been deathly afraid of offending these certifiable nutcases. I just saw Richard Wolffe saying that the WH is planning on going balls to the wall this year and is, in effect, done with putting up with the attacks from the right. A little problem there: TOO. FUCKING. LATE. We just LOST a Senate seat in Massachusetts. We couldn't get shit done with 60 votes in the Senate, what makes you think anything will be done now with 59? The bubble around the WH has made the Democratic Party unbelievably weak. Like, losing a senate seat in Massachusetts weak. Wolffe also said that the WH was "surprised" about the party discipline from the GD Republicans. ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME? SURPRISED? I've lived in Kansas my entire life and I could've told you on the night of Obama's win exactly how the right and the GOP were going to play this. These morons get paid how much and have direct access to the President and they were fucking surprised? Jesus! Watching five minutes of politics would tell a person living in complete isolation in fucking Siberia who and what the Republicans are and how they roll. Christ on a crouton.

_______

And the only Dems showing any kind of balls.... House Progressives.

Good for them. Obama screwed them hard. I hope they screw back just as hard.

House Liberals To Pelosi: “We Cannot Support The Senate Bill. Period.” | The Plum Line:

"In a private meeting in the Capitol just now, a dozen or more House liberals bluntly told Nancy Pelosi that there was no chance that they would vote to pass the Senate bill in its current form — making it all but certain that House Dems won’t opt for this approach, a top House liberal tells me.

“We cannot support the Senate bill — period,” is the message that liberals delivered to the Speaker, Dem Rep Raul Grijalva told me in an interview just now."

_______

And in other fucked up, the minority of white wackos are running this country news....

This is just further erosion of our Democracy, this is half of the goddamn mountain sliding into the ocean.

5-4 and Corporations are now people.

We. Are. Fucked.

Supreme Court rolls back campaign spending limits - Yahoo! News:

"WASHINGTON – The Supreme Court has ruled that corporations may spend freely to support or oppose candidates for president and Congress, easing decades-old limits on their participation in federal campaigns.

By a 5-4 vote, the court on Thursday overturned a 20-year-old ruling that said corporations can be prohibited from using money from their general treasuries to pay for their own campaign ads. The decision, which almost certainly will also allow labor unions to participate more freely in campaigns, threatens similar limits imposed by 24 states."
