USA Today has another article about the the b0bots left under the bus. I have been keeping track of these, last being this one where some of my readers reminisced about Brazile and her role in this.

Today’s article

Obama’s liberal base ‘disengaged’

revolves around two quotes from her – beginning and end and owes its title to her it seems

“The energized base which transformed the nation and elected our first black president (is) now disengaged,” Democratic political strategist Donna Brazile says. “If this was September, I would hit the panic button.”

Of course, another reading of what she says clearly duplicates Rahm’s err staffer’s dismissive comment from last December

“This is not a time to worry about the base; we’ll have all of the election year to do that,” said the Democratic source. “We’ll have a long list of accomplishments to present for them to rally around.”

We have another dismissal from Gibbs using his favorite word

White House spokesman Robert Gibbs routinely brushes off questions about whether Obama and the Democrats are losing key constituencies, but he says the notion that the president is taking liberals for granted is “silly.”

At the end of a state by state analysis, Brazile pops up again waving the Pollyanna wand and qualifying all this as something to be cured by “spin”

Brazile says there’s time to repair the damage and re-energize liberal activists. “Will it be a tough spin? You betcha,” she says. “But I do think President Obama and the party will be up to the task.”

Did I just hear a Palin paraphrase there? I guess  was the subliminal message about what the spin will be about.

Sorry to bust her bubble (not really) but in B0botland the topic is extremely popular and B0bots will be harder to fool this time around

2. Those who care about ending war, feeding the hungry, educating our children

are not disengaged… We are having to move on. We are not waiting for another speech. We are talking. We are working. But we are not disengaged.
157. Don’t you know that he is playing chess? Problem is we are the pawns.

and

222. Disenchanted, not disengaged.

I still care–I care desperately–but I don’t have much faith in the national political process so I’m putting more energy into other avenues, like local citizen involvement.

Operatives are working hard but incur direct hits

154. Rah, Rah, Sis Boom Bah!

Like, OMG, anyone who thinks Obama hasn’t delivered is just picking on him!

Bzzt! Cheerleading will not change the fact that he has been ineffective. Great presidents do what is not “politically possible.” Weak presidents look only to what is “politically possible.” Failed presidents don’t manage to do even what’s “politically possible.” Obama is heading for category #3.

One even gets some of what Brazile is saying

Donna Brazile, and I quote:

Brazile says there’s time to repair the damage and re-energize liberal activists. “Will it be a tough spin? You betcha,” she says. “But I do think President Obama and the party will be up to the task.”

Tough Spin? Is that what we have to look forward too? Do they not realize that we know what “spin” means?

Spin=Lies :grr:

So, Dona dear, don’t hit the panic button. They’ll be back. Any day now.

Psst! One thing about using Palin again: some figured that they don’t have to go to the polls at all. I believe it’s what “disengaged” means. Be careful what you wish for. Here’s the B0bots again

That “silly” notion is gonna bite them in the ass if they don’t wake up.

156. Robert Gibbs: The notion that the president is taking liberals for granted is “silly.”
Whistling by the graveyard. I’m surprised Rahm didn’t chime in with a Chicago fuck you !

I vote ONLY for tried and tested Progressives in the future.
Lieberman Liberals, Blue Dogs and Centrist need not apply.
