Those who visit seem to think the harshest Obama criticism comes from the blogosphere Herein referred to as ‘hard left”)
The Orange Cheeto provides most of the quotes
Kos, from the radically left DailyKos, called the decision to keep Lieberman as chairman of his committee “idiotic.” And, in another post, the radical Left’s standard bearer derided the Democratic Party as being “spineless capitulators” for allowing Lieberman to keep his post.
Do they remember the fact that Obama himself asked for this?
Just wondering, as I’ll never go check.
Of course, the next bone of contention is Hillary’s offer for SOS.
Hilariously, the author includes Tweety in this “hard left” category – as if he spittling about the Clintons surprises anyone. And the Cheeto doesn’t either, but the quotes are funny again
It’s very painful for me to watch Obama, the person I was so inspired by, transform himself from a “clean break from the 1990’s” to the Bill Clinton freak show. This is not what I voted for.
I guess he voted for “Reagan had all the good ideas?”
Anyway, the commentary on different bloggers heads exploding is right on the nose:
Oomph, the pain! One could infer from the outrage, if the name Clinton was removed from this blog post, that Obama had considered nominating, say, the outgoing president to be secretary of state, not a liberal New York senator.
The author seems to love Obama for stiffing his base – as he comes closer to his RW politics.
. It’s where we part ways.
But it ends well:
For the Left, what should be their greatest triumph is turning to disappointment. As they realize their beloved candidate might not really share their world view, their bitterness will rise. Whether that will have any political ramifications remains to be seen. But one thing is sure — for the hard Left the honeymoon is over.
Not reading that, my impression was different – from the anti-war groups that feel criticizing would be wrong
“There’s so much Obama hero worship, we’re having to walk this line where we can’t directly criticize him,” he said. “But we are expressing concern.”
So, brave little bloggers, go on. The only thing you left behind is your credibility.
I mean all this stuff
