This is a real apology

I’ve been rough lately on this phony progressive, Barack Obama. But anybody can go back and read my posts in 2007 and see how I was sooo excited about Barack Obama. Wow….he’s proven to be the biggest political mistake in my fifty years of watching politics. I will gladly take back everything I said about Hillary Clinton – she would have made ten times the president as this man.

My apologies, Secretary Clinton

President Clinton saw it for what it was: Smoke and Mirrors. It’s all become very clear to me now. Obama’s weakness and inexperience is highlighted for all to see. I really am sorry for all those Hillary-bashing posts. Sincerely sorry. I WAS WRONG.

HILLARY in ’12 for REAL Leadership.

and astonishingly, there are agreements.

I also apologize to Secretary Clinton for al the things I said and thought. I also was wrong.

I thought that Obama’s positions, when they edged center-ward, were an attempt to “split the difference” from his “real (progressive)” views, and the expectations that he would be criticized for not conforming to. I now realize I was projecting, and I got it exactly backwards.I was wrong.

It is a step ahead from this attempt a few days ago, which got overrun with attacks

I’m beginning to think i made a mistake in my support of Obama in 08 over Hillary.

Maybe her campaign promises would also have been compromised,. But I think she would have been much more effective at getting more of that she wanted. And what she wanted — although not perfect — was a lot better start than this crap that Obama is pushing now.

It contains aspects that are important — Strong regulation and requirement that all insurere provide a basic affiordable plan, and a public option similar to Medicare.

Maybe I goofed.

The time it took me to post this, the topic got locked though…. It was an illegal admission apparently
I guess Amy Siskind was right when she declared 2009 the year of the apology
s a result, 2009 might well be dubbed The Year of the Apology. Chris Matthews apologized on behalf of Dick Armey for Armey’s comment to Joan Walsh. Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.) apologized for calling Fed Adviser Linda Robertson a “K Street Whore.” Letterman apologized (twice) for his “jokes” about Governor Palin’s teenage daughter. Heck, even Chris Brown apologized for almost strangling Rihanna to death.
The illustrations I chose reflect my feelings on this.
Had their mistake been a pure political one (he was more progressive, she was DLC), I would have accepted it and moved on.
But the name calling, the hatred, the sexism, the way we, her supporters were harassed – all this can’t be covered by “I made a wrong call”.
Still, I am glad they are waking up.
Trust them or not, we’ll be fighting the same fights.

NewsdayΒ  is boasting Long island newly quired pork even as NYC is slashing similar services

Metro blames poor shopping on the snow

AM-NY has a very depressing End of a Decade cover

…and NY Times quite literally buries a list of pork in Health Club for Men under a snow photo

After the longest night (that the senate used to push through the bailout to the insurers), the sun nevertheless did rise this morning.

I have proof:

Astronomically, the winter solstice occurs at 12:47PM, EST
