I am considering re-naming B0botland Chucles Underground, but I fear it’s a tad obscure.

Still, I may use Chuckles as DUdie statuette.

In a thread celebrating Oprecious’s victories as propagandized by Bob Shrum, one injects some reality

66. Just look at the front page of DU, or are you camped out in the Skittles and Rainbows forum.

If you are unable to at least remember the headlines from the last two weeks, than I am afraid that it’s your problem, not mine.

Oh wait, the two wars in Iraq and Afganistan, you want me to link to them? With the Mainstream media barely able to squeeze in the weekly body count these days, I may have a hard time..

It’s funny how I was able to see what a tool this Bob Shrum was simply by typing his name into a Google search box, and you can’t be bothered to do your own research, on topics posted on the front page of DU in the last three days…

It’s out there if you bother to open your eyes, because it’s apparent that you’d rather not go looking for troubling data that might alter your reality..

However, you did make a request for linkage, so I won’t disappoint, or disappear…

Democratic Underground – Latest Breaking News

:shrug: Back at you

The sound of koolaid wearing off


6. I feel totally USED.
I worked over a year to get Obama elected. I gave so much time and even money I did not have. But he’s not listening to the people. He’s listening to his advisors who seem to be corporate sell outs. I don’t get it. What happened to candidate-Obama? What we’re asking him to do isn’t hard. He could have ended the Afghanistan war by now. He could have had real health care reform passed. He could have repealed DADT in the time it takes to write his signature. And he could have closed Gitmo. But he keeps caving in to the right wing without getting even one of their votes. Obama is not representing the people who got him into office. He has turned his back on us. And for what? Why is he so silent? He should have used the BP disaster to enact a comprehensive energy policy that would be like the Manhatten Project or the Moon Project. But nothing. While Rome burns we the people are getting burned and no one cares.

I’m beginning to wonder if there is even one person with guts in government, just one? It’s sad, it’s sick and it’s destroying our country. Ineptness seems to be their only goal.

and another one

After much soul searching I have decided I have to change my Avatar back…

I wanted to believe we had started down a new path, one that would take us into a better future for humanity and the earth.
Perhaps that much change is just not possible… at least not in the limited time we have left before we completely destroy our planet.

I will continue to push with all my might for that change we need to survive, but I just can’t put a happy face on it…

On a discussion of an article on the ineffectiveness of the Financial regulation

2. “Bankers crucified at dawn, pundits complain that they weren’t burnt alive.”

*yawn*

The sound of koolaid still strong

Too bad for all of you who are against President Obama, best thing

to ever happen to America. He inherited 8 years of thrash and you come on here and blame him for not doing enough in two years. Best fucking President in 16 years. And if you are progressive or independent, be honest, support him if you want your America back. The teabaggers do not count!

and an answer to go with that from someone who thinks they are The Dog Whisperer

26. No they don’t. Why do they need their feet held to the fire?

Obama’s doing what he said he would do.

This constant assertion they need their feet held to the fire assumes an underlying premise: that others will do nothing without negative reinforcement.

From the Queen, a loweed expectations call to arms

Sounds Corny? So F*#*^g What? Hope is still better than None!
This Op is addressed to those of us who will vote Democratic this upcoming election,
and still see real hope for a better country, and a brighter future for our children.

It actually keeps going and going, but I have limited bandwidth….

On the thread where Obama calls the “obsession with the end of the war”, a bit of snark which should get this deleted (as it compares Jr.jr to jr)
14. I can’t believe Bush thinks he can get away with this. We’re stuck

here in a depression and he thinks he can waste what resources we do have on some criminal war? I don’t think so. We’ll take to the streets. RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE, man!!! You’ll see me and millions of others!!!! We’ll shut DC down until we get–what? He didn’t? He didn’t say it? You’re sure? It sounds kind of like him. Bush. War. Waste. Hunt ’em down. Smoke ’em out. It wasn’t him? You’re positive? Well, who was it then? Obama? No! Obama??? You’re kidding me. Really? Obama?
snip
The more I think about it, the more I see Obama knows what he’s doing. We NEED to win this war. Our nation’s role in the world is at stake. We can fight the terrorists there or we can fight them here! Go Team! Go USA! Gobama!
Experts on racism (because they voted for Obama) Bobots weigh in the latest Mel Gibson revelation
Yeah, makes you wonder about the “Lethal Weapon” movies

Did he just compartmentalize his attitude while he worked with Danny Glover? Disappointing.

Of course, anyone who is “disappointed” by Gibson at this juncture, was perfectly comfortable with his antisemitism before. What a perfect Rorshach test Mel proves to be!

thread – mostly as debunked in one of the responses.

And the DUdie
goes to ProSense for her opportunistic “if you praise Obama, you’re good”

Bill Clinton: Obama is brilliant, exceedingly empathetic and not getting his due

In the twisted a a pretzel category, B0bot brings up Blill Clinton’s praise of Obama. Further attacks on Clinton follow, but the best is this reply to the OP
25. I remember posts from you about Bill Clinton

He’s a panderer to racists, he’s a huge homophobe, you have said so many negative things about him that it is simply brethtaking to see you tout his words today. A search your name and his provides many, many very harsh words about the man you present today as a font of golden wisdom.
It is really hypocritical sort of co-opting of anything and everything.
Here is my favorite title to one of your Bill posts:
“After both Hillary, Bill pandered to the black community, Bill goes back to race-baiting.”
