Democrats, just congenitally, tend to get — to see the glass as half empty. (Laughter.) If we get an historic health care bill passed — oh, well, the public option wasn’t there.If you get the financial reform bill passed — then, well, I don’t know about this particular derivatives rule, I’m not sure that I’m satisfied with that. And gosh, we haven’t yet brought about world peace and — (laughter.) I thought that was going to happen quicker. (Laughter.) You know who you are. (Laughter.) We have had the most productive, progressive legislative session in at least a generation.
some good comments
10. Maybe if you had the $30,000 for the dinner, it sounded different. n/t
and some typical ones
4. He was mocking some lying dipshits.
But it’s of course, locked. To many of us, this arritude smacks of
(especially the looking for WMD under the bed part)
And since the signal was given, Professional leftards get it from the fluffers too
The sheer quietness in which Elizabeth Warren appointment is being received over the Left blogosphere is really the perfect proof. It would have been so much more fun if the president would fulfill their expectation and “sell out” again.
19. Yep. Half the folks talking about it here think she’s just a figurehead
or some stupid thing. Or just take the opportunity to bash Obama for HOW he appointed her. It’s fucking sick. Permalink
27. Deleted message
There’s of course, the triumphalist version of the events
meanwhile, Professional Leftards are caught as deer in the lights
19. It appears that President Obama
has decided his base are the rich elite in Greenwich, Connecticut who inherently know how to enjoy a good $10K dinner plate, while being regaled with good jokes about overly hungry, simple-minded peasants.
upon correction on the amount
66. Well that would explain a lot.
You’ve got to wonder what he’d be willing to say for $50k a plate? Permalink
on another thread on the same, one comments
07. Honey, it is turning into —
a regular freak show here. Between those liberals targeted for tombstoning, those chased away, and those who can’t be bothered with DU anymore it is getting creepy as hell.
There is some very serious “shut up and get the hell in line” action taking place — expect more of it the closer we get to the election. Permalink
“And gosh, we haven’t yet brought about world peace and — (laughter.) I thought that was going to happen quicker.”
Seriously, who is he talking about? Our country is involved in two major wars, and typically presidents face protests from peace activists when we are involved in wars. But Obama seems to have been spared.
Has he ever even seen a Code Pink demonstration against him? They are currently still protesting against Karl Rove, I think Obama doesn’t have to worry about them.
So who is he talking about?
Still, as someone notes
4. it was the same joke Gibbs made
“They will be satisfied when we have Canadian health care and we’ve eliminated the Pentagon. That’s not reality.”
It’s not a metaphor. It’s a message: liberals are ridiculous.
and still the fluffers are bitching and moaning
Every post that promotes winning for Democrats gets unrecommended.
Eventually, it led to this Obama/Gibbs like
Here’s what he posted:Hey Skinner, Tombstone me, ya weasly fuck.
You fucking no balls cocksucker.
A bit of CDS to unite the factions
Clinton told Bob Schieffer on CBS’s “Face the Nation” that the conservative wave sweeping the country “reflects the feeling of a lot of Americans that they are getting the shaft.”
6. I don’t believe that Clinton’s agenda is in the best interest of America
It’s literally no different from the “death panels” bullshit that the Republicans pushed, a blind attempt to terrify people–particularly seniors–with claims about what will happen if Obama gets his way, claims that are in NO way based on reality. It’s fearmongering, and anyone who wants to engage in that sort of behavior should be ashamed of themselves.
7. I want chicken, I want liver, Alan Simpson please deliver!
Finally, it’s decided to change the name
10. Maybe we ought to call it the ramen commission then..
Catfood is expensive, there’s not much that’s cheaper than ramen..Permalink
And after the mockery comes the…taking for granted
Most hurry to reassure everyone they already are in line. One sees the following image in his mind
7. hopes to get liberals in line ?
Few dare to stay “out of line”
5. still trying to pay for my drug testing and i have no health coverage.
so much for hope and change. haha
all they can do now is use the old fear tactics, yelling that republicans are coming to get me.
fuck the line.
with the fufferes telling them they don’t count anyway
4. The ones that feign outrage at every little thing don’t count.
They’re not going to support Democrats regardless. They’re just going to take their ball and go home.
Ah, welcome to our world!
A great headline
And then, the possibility that in a year from now he’s going to be at some fundraiser making fun of me for ever expecting him to end those tax cuts at all.
“They’re mad at me because I didn’t bring about world peace (laughter), and because I didn’t end the Bush tax cuts (laughter)….”
Hatred and CDS for some reason ensues
A very popular improvement on the Dems logo
And finally, new fundraiser, new mocking get applause from the fans
He criticized Democrats who complain that “the health care plan didn’t have a public option,” or say to him, “’You ended the war in Iraq but haven’t completely finished the Afghan war yet.’”
Unanimous swooning ensues
However, in another thread, someone has a good twist on Biden’s “look at the alternative” – considering their selective listening to Obama
25. define “alternative”
It could be republicans and the administration looks good.
It could also be the Obama from the campaign, and the administration looks bad (to some of us)
Don’t let them get away with being better than the bad guys. Make them use a higher bar.

Another one has trouble being flogged as he submits as fast as he can
7. As one of these progressives,
I’m coming around to the idea of showing up in November to vote for a slate of candidates I don’t really like, but who are somewhat better than the alternative.
Smart-ass remarks from the President aren’t helpful.

and one sees beyond
28. Why the need to pressure liberal critics?
If it’s just the fucking retarded, professional left who is upset, the rest of America must LOVE everything he’s done so far, and November will be a cakewalk for the Dems. No?
You don’t think he’s worried, do you? Permalink
The NY Times account of the “exhausted to defend Obama” voter is discussed
And one of the replies (some of which call the woman a plant), takes the DUdie for arrogant dismissal of voters
81. WTF kind of question is “What I really want to know is: Is the American dream dead for me?”
Sounds like disappointed concern trolls.
From a different thread, same idea, even better sample of contempt
3. That lady whose kids were in private school but she’s tired
of beans and hot dogs. What a whiney selfish person. Why in the hell didn’t she stay home rather than mess it up for those who really are in need.

In doing research for this, I got so disgusted with name calling, I shall adjust my own. A reset to follow in an upcoming entry..
