More awakenings

Obama seeks to limit ruling on gays in military??? WTF?!?!?

22. I once loved that man. Now I’m kinda looking forward to the supoenas and investigations. They will

crush him like he is doing to me.

I take no satisfaction in having been right 2 years ago.

Another, based on a Kos journal

‘Today, Obama Lost the Hearts and Minds of LGBTs For a Generation’

is full of dismissive insults from the apologists

1. Log Cabin Republicans are looking for recruits… n/t1.

Mixed in with paranoia

6. He probably already is a member. I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s a GOP troll.
After all, DKos recently nailed a Republican aide/staffer — who was pretending to be a liberal Democrat — who was continually attacking Pres. Obama and Democrats from the left, all in an effort to sow seeds of party discontent among DKos members and readership.

I have no illusions that that troll was the only GOP operative on a mission at DKos. It may even be the same perp.

Whenever I see overblown rhetoric like this, I’m suspicious. Permalink

Will someone tell these people that the whole “troll nailing” was a hoax?

You’d think the apologists would stay away from a thread like this one

Obama invokes ‘state secrets’ claim to dismiss suit against targeting of U.S. citizen al-Aulaqi

But nooooo! They sound like the freepers of the yester year

45. It’ll never happen to me. I don’t plan on becoming a terrorist al-Qaeda leader in Yemen…
… who helps recruit terrorists like the Christmas bomber and the VA military base mass murderer and plan those kind of terrorist attacks.

The answer presents itself

America Today: FBI Raids Peace Activists, Confiscates MLK Photo

and this too gets justified

0. Yeah I expect the president to stop enforcing US law..

and make illegal activity legal. I mean other than drugs, those should be legal. Unlike hamas, farc, pflp, they dont blow up pizza joints and buses.

Ironically

Those who got fooled, apologize

Donnie McClurkin was just the opening act.

Posts like this one follow

4. I want to apologize for not believing you then too.

If regrets over the primaries were dollar bills…

The last twist in electoral strategy makes some unhappy

••• White House chickening out of frontal attack on Tea Party GOP – BELIEVE IT OR NOT •••

The opening note on this is telling

(Note: This was posted before and locked but the mods were nice enough to tell me I could repost if I took out the part they found unacceptable, which I did. Thanks.)

(I also want to emphasize here that there is nothing wrong with passion on our side if it is guided by intellect. Emotion is an intermediary between intellect and action. If there is no emotion all the intellect in the world will not move a person to actually do something. Hence Ed Schultz has a segment in his broadcasts in which he says, “This is the story that has me FIRED UP tonight…”)

Remember the British Airways add? WHERE IS EVERYONE?

Where did everybody go??

I haven’t seen DU posts move this slow in a long time.

Is it that everybody is getting burned out or just catching their breath?

Don’t give up people. You are on the side of the good. You are fighting the dark side. Hang in there.

Last one out, turn off the lights!

One figured out the purpose of the Jr.jr administration (although doesn’t know it yet)

Obama administration wishes to build on Bush’s record on destroying privacy

<http://www.nytimes.com/2010/09/27/us/27wiretap.html?_r=… >

We didn’t condone this sort of shit under Bush, so why should we condone it under Obama?

Not only will this allow the administration to tap into our online communication, but it would drive small providers out of business, since the costs of compliance with this would bankrupt them.

This is another day when the question about this administration becomes: What change?

Boo-hoo-hooo! Let the blame game start:

“Many of Obama’s supporters decided they were, in fact, NOT the ones they had been waiting for…”

and, instead, decided to sit down and let Obama do it all himself.” ~ Jonathan Alter, “The Promise.”

and of course, the guiltiest are those who didn’t support Obama in the primary

55. More on that point.

I sometimes see people who voted for Obama but supported someone else in the primary deliver a lot of “I told you so” about the fact that he didn’t turn out to be the savior we thought he would be. The problem is that the critics never understood that Obama wasn’t offering to be a savior. They don’t understand that those of us who “got” Obama aren’t disappointed because we knew all along that it was going to be more difficult than waiting for him to do it for us. Those critics are disappointed because they were the ones looking for a savior who will never come.

See, some would say they were onto something. But not here. Here, they were NOT supporting Obama because they wanted a savior…

 Of course all of this broad brush condescension is insulting to people

in Democratic constituencies- and the moment, that’s about THE single stupidest thing Democratic leaders -or their surrogates or supporters can do (I’d sad politically inept- but it’s worse than that).

A good comment to this surreal headline

Obama To Young Voters: ‘You Can’t Sit Out’ In 2010

1. Sadly, I’m sure a number of them are saying: “Yes, we can!”

and the Dudie

has to go to “Hillary supporters wanted a savior”
