Since reading Miq post, I had edited the Wikipedia article, (criticism section) adding some disclosure about James Roosevelt
In the interest of disclosure, it must be said that James Roosevelt was also the CEO of Tuft Healthcare Institute and a few months after giving Obama delegates in a state he didn’t run was drafting the insurers demands for the healthcare bill which all ended up in the law | url = http://edgeoforever.wordpress.com/insurance-ceo-fronts-obama-steals-election-for-him-writes-hcr/
We’ll see if it stays.
As for the blog wars nonsense, while I am flatered that I am featured by both the original handle (Edgeoforever) and the present one (Not Your Sweetie), I must also remark that I didn’t split from anywhere. I have always been an independent blogger – and in the summer of 2008 I was part of the PUMA movement. I still read the Confluence. Myiq and Murphy’s entries regularly.
Here is Myiq’s article

Right after the revelations about the media conspiracy to install Obama using Jurnolist, Sullivan is patting himself on the back for not being on that list
One reason I would never be on such a list, of course, is my record of non-liberalism: my loathing of the Clintons, my anti-p.c. instincts, my disdain for taboos on race and gender and sexuality on the left, my early support for what I stupidly thought would be moderate conservatism under Bush and even dumber tub-thumping for war in Iraq after the trauma of 9/11.
Let’s see if I get this: I was never part of a group whose reason to exist was to attack Hillary Clinton on daily basis because….I hate the Clintons too much.
And it gets better
I was also shocked by George Stephanopoulos’ FNC-style questioning in the primary debate, and said so in no uncertain terms. But those errors and good judgments were mine and mine alone.
This disclaimer comes after the article on Jurnoist reveals that
Watching this all at home were members of Journolist, a listserv comprised of several hundred liberal journalists, as well as like-minded professors and activists. The tough questioning from the ABC anchors left many of them outraged. “George [Stephanopoulos],” fumed Richard Kim of the Nation, is “being a disgusting little rat snake.”
and actively worked to attack ABC and its ancors for daring to ask Obama questions.
So, what are Sully’s errors again? (besides his love of W):
Thathe hated the Clintons BEFORE some of the Jurnoists people (Conason, Tomasky, feel humbled) and he hated ABC’s anchors for not giving Obama his fluffy pillows even more.
If that is a crime, flay me with a wet noodle. Please!
In all fairness, he also has a good last sentence
But socialized groupthink is not the answer to what’s wrong with the media. It’s what’s already wrong with the media.
Too bad that everything he wrote before was explaining why he was even more group thinky than most. His whole argument amounts to
I was Jurnoist before there was a jurnoist
And he is right
I had quite a few apologies posted here since Jr.jr showed his true colors to all.
By way of an apology, I dedicate this site to all those whose opinions and experience I wasn’t willing to consider during the 2008 Democratic Primary season; to all of the Democrats who opposed an Obama nomination I apologize. To all of those Democrats whom I considered too old, too dumb, too unenlightened, too female, too poor, too uneducated, too conservative… I most humbly apologize. I have been put in my place. You were right. You were right and I’m on your side now. Oh, and thank you!
You may want to go there and respond.
P.S – I used ol’ PUMAS in the title for brevity sake, and snark . Ol’PUMA was also meant in historical context – PUMAs standing up to the thieves of the primary and the corporate Obama.
I guess what our new friend needs to acknowledge next is the electoral fraud they chose to ignore/be too comfortable with. Then maybe some meaningful resistance, activism can be renewed.
This is the full headline from Rasmussen
Hey, I remember voters saying the same in 2008. The RBC & other shenanigans happened.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that 57% of voters feel Clinton is qualified to be president, but 34% disagree and say she is not.
Here are Obama’s numbers for comparison
As for President Obama, 51% say he is fit for the job. However, 44% say he is not qualified to be president, even though he has now served 17 months in the job.
Thee “R” candidates are worse that B0’s.
Breathless headline in B0botland
6. Oh noes the pumabaggers are at it again. nt
76. And the dead enders just keep on dead ending. n/t
and the lowered expectations defense
Those numbers are GREAT for Obama, considering that HE, unlike Hillary, has had
to actually BE president. What a STUPID poll!
and that lovely line freepers used re: Gore in 2000
81. She lost get over it n/t
and a prediction is made
85. Oh, this will go well……………
It’ll be the usual reaction:
The Hillary supporters will completely agree (me included). The Hillary haters will spew their vitriol. The moderators will decide to close the thread when the fur has flown long enough to clog the air ducts.
I’ll revisit to check.
It’s another one of those “paging Dr Freud” instances like the times W wished out loud to be a dictator.
To add a bit of fun to this, it was during the meeting with the leader of Borat’s country, Kazakhstan
President Obama said Sunday that the United States is still “working on” democracy and a top aide said he has taken “historic steps” to improve democracy in the United States during his time in office.
The remarks came as Obama met with Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev — one of the U.S. president’s many meetings with world leaders ahead of this week’s nuclear summit.
Aparently there was another level of irony I wasn’t aware of
Some observers see a conflict between Kazakhstan’s chairmanship of the 56-nation OSCE, which plays an important role in monitoring elections in emerging democracies, and its own widely criticized human rights record.
But if the Obama administration saw any disconnect, it kept its criticism to itself.
The apex of irony however was reached when his spokesman was asked to comment on this
“Both presidents agreed that you don’t ever reach democracy; you always have to work at it. And in particular, President Obama reminded his Kazakh counterpart that we, too, are working to improve our democracy.”
Asked by a Wall Street Journal reporter if Obama sees any moral equivalency between the two, the PR man chirped
“Absolutely not … There was no equivalence meant whatsoever,” McFaul said. “[Obama's] taken, I think, rather historic steps to improve our own democracy since coming to office here in the United States.”
Wow! Where do I even start to unpack this “historic” claim?
First, I’d say, the flunkie was being modest. I say, Obama’s work on our democracy started way before he came to office. How can we not credit him with Michigan, Florida, RBC, the phony roll call, the concept of “clinching the nomination”, having Kerry ask the media not to cover Florida because “they don’t count” and other historical deeds.
I’ll leave it to my readers to find historical improvements since that time. Besides the “historical” renewal of the PATRIOT Act that is.
I can only think of one, in today’s headlines
Foes of tea party movement to infiltrate rallies
Opponents of the fiscally conservative tea party movement say they plan to infiltrate and dismantle the political group by trying to make its members appear to be racist, homophobic and moronic.Jason Levin, creator of http://www.crashtheteaparty.org, said Monday the group has 65 leaders in major cities across the country who are trying to recruit members to infiltrate tea party events
It’s historical, yet not unprecedented, see Nixon’s COINTELPRO . But we also remember, B0bots aren’t very good at this
But I do want to credit the flunkie for clever use of the words “coming in to office” instead of “being elected”. I think I’ll just update the Obama Lexicon
