I voted for Obama! I am a ardent progressive. But I am sick and tired of defending him and his fellow members of the Troika Of Impotence, the other two being HarryReid and Nancy Pelosi. Be honest is this “Change We Can Believe In?”
Why the hell should the Democratic base support this Troika of Impotence! Yes the Republicans are the “party of no”. But under Obama and the Troika of Impotence the Democratic Party has become the “Party of MEOW”!
President Obama,Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid, being the “Troika Of Impotence” in advancing the progressive agenda, are now beginning to realize we may loose control of the House! Maybe they can take a break from singing Komb Bye Yah and making nicey with the Republicans to actually listen to the Democratic Party base. Reid is even scared for his own senate seat!
So how are those campaign contributions from the pharmaceutical industry working out for you now Senator Reid? Thanks for destroying the Public Option!
Naturally they want us liberals and progressives to stand by them after they:
When will Obama learn that bi-partisanship is nonsense! President Obama’s approval rating is dropping like a stone in water. What happened to that great orator we elected? The way the Republicans where whining when Barrack Obama was elected I thought by now the Republicans would be slitting their wrists in our new Socialist Motherland! But Republicans unlike my fellow Democrats have testosterone. Republicans will do anything to preserve the rights of the top 2% over the needs of the Silent Majority of Americans.
We need a liberal President with some testosterone such as Senator Bernie Sanders or former Governor Howard Dean! Both Barrack Obama and Hillary Clinton are too weak. Hillary Clinton, while an agent of job outsourcing, at least was a strong advocate for Universal Health Care.
Recently the guest host on the “Ed Schultz Show” blasted Obama saying that the weakened health care law would not survive to 2014 when most of its provisions would go into effect. Ed’s guest host is from the “Young Turk’s” and gives a great analysis. (See the video below).
As a Social Democrat I would prefer to deal with the Mosque near Ground Zero after the election because I am admittedly a pragmatist and don’t want the Republicans to win. But after listening to The Ed Schultz and Keith Olbermann Shows I have come to the conclusion that there is a case for ANTI-LIBERAL NEWS MEDIA BIASES concerning Obama and the Mosque issue!
First has anyone heard Senator Harry Reid’s full comments on Obama’s flip flop on the Mosque? Senator Reid spoke about the lack of Republican support for those injured at Ground Zero? Since the Republicans seem so intense about the sacredness of “Ground Zero” you would expect them to fork up some cash to those brave first responders! Did the news media make as much of an issue concerning the Republicans not supporting a Democrat bill to provide relief to those first responders who are suffering from the after effects of the WTC pollution? The answer is no! The news media only made an issue of the Mosque, and from most news media reports, the Mosque was going to be on Ground Zero! However the truth is the exact opposite! (See the video below by Keith Olbermann). Why is the news media saying the Mosque is going to be on Ground Zero and why don’t they challenge the Republicans when they say such lies? Why is the news media spinning the truth with a right wing slant? This is not just Fox News where you would expect such nonsense but all the news channels!
On Tuesday Ed Schultz went ballistic about Senator Harry Reid’s comments concerning President Barrack Obama not being forceful with the Republicans. <See video below>. Yes Ed Schultz is correct that Senator Reid should have been forceful himself long ago. None the less I am tired of playing “make believe” about Barrack Obama! I voted for Obama because I just loved what the right winger’s were saying about him!
From listening to these Republican lovers of the corporate collectivization of America you quickly learned they were scared of Barrack Obama! They claimed he was going to use his considerable rhetorical skills to usher in the new Socialist Motherland in America! Hell he has barely used his rhetorical skills in the Presidency. He is no FDR, JFK or Ronald Reagan! And as for the laws he has passed, they are so watered down and wimpy they fit his signature! – MEOW!
Americans love “action figures”. George Bush Jr. did not even have a majority when the College of Electors gave him the presidency in the 2000 election. Gore had the popular vote regardless of Florida. But Bush became an “action figure” when the issue was terrorism. So what he invaded the wrong country, Iraq! Americans love ACTION! His action, even wrong action, gave him a second term. Hell even the liberal MSNBC was re-airing the invasion of Iraq with all our “shock and awe” technology to it’s liberal audience well into the second term of George Bush. Then the issue was the economy and jobs. The Republicans preached what George Bush Sr. called “voodoo economics”. The same hands off economics of Herbert Hover. Obama promised “change” he presented himself as an “ACTION FIGURE”. Below is a video, not from a politician but an average American whose frustration and anger I agree with 100%. Thank you Justin for the video!
I disagree with The Huffington Post that a loss in Massachusetts is the loss of Universal Health Care! In fact as a Progressive Social Democrat I welcome it! When I heard the recent predictions I was actually laughing since this is the pathetic result of fighting the “Party of No” by being the “Party of MEOW”! It reminds me of my undergraduate days learning B. F. Skinners’ operant conditiong! Corporate America and their fellow travelers, the Blue Dog Democrats, have been using operant conditioning’s “successive approximation” to shape the behavior of President Obama, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi to the point where they are now “The Castrati Brigade for Change”! The new ‘mantra” of the Democratic Party leadership is “MEOW”!
When is the American middle class going to wake up and demand the separation of corporation and state! We must address this issue before the health care issue. The problems passing real health care reform are mere symptoms of the underlying disease that is infecting the “decision making processes” of our society! That disease is the lack of Separation between Corporation and State!
This bill is to weak and requires audacity to hope that rates will not skyrocket due to insurance company greed. I am afraid I cannot go along with Senator Harkins analogy that the Senate Bill is a “starter house not a mansion but we have to start somewhere!” I must number myself among the “Democrats Against Health Reform” because as Howard Dean has mentioned the Bill still allows Insurance Companies to practice “de facto” rejection of customers due to prior existing conditions. The rejection would be illegal but the modus operandi would be that insurance companies can still jack up their prices to cost prohibitive levels on those customers they do not want!
There is no real competition for the insurance companies without a robust public option.
Thus rates will continue their projected massive upward trends. Rates are set to skyrocket over the next few years but the average American is not aware of this.
If there is no bill then the so called “free market” will be blamed and their Republican fellow travelers would suffer even more loses at the polls.
If the bill passes then when rates continue to rise unchecked the Democrats will take the blame.
You cannot simply “add on” to this “starter house” because the Democrats just don’t have the testosterone to do it! Besides having a public option was a compromise to begin with since most progressives want a single payer system!
I strongly urge you to watch this testosterone filled video from “The Frank Factor”. This video was made prior to Obama taking office! But the author makes a correct assessment and a dire prediction that has come true due to the weak behavior of both Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi. (See see video below).
