A very insightful UK analysis
They know the people who caused the crash are fatter than ever, while the people who had nothing to do with it take the pain, and Obama is left calling this farce progress. In the absence of a liberal populism that would have actually fixed these problems, all the oxygen goes to the fake populism of the Tea Party. US politics has ended up as a battle between the mostly corrupt and the entirely corrupt.
is met with the usual “Love Obama or die” attitude from 2008,
20. who’s ‘us all’ ?
23. You’re so polite. I was going to say, “What’s this ‘us all’ shit?!1′ ” n/t Permalink
A very good question
Trolls officially take over the place as an Obama booster reveals his true identity with just enough hypocrisy
Free Republic, trying to convince people that their approach was wrong and that they were wrong….
In those almost four years, I wrote over 23,000 posts. I always avoided breaking any rules of the site, and so was allowed to stay there as some sort of “token liberal.”….
to make them see him as a hero
I applaud you, my dear MineralMan!
I admire your creativity, your intelligence, and your tenacity in the face of what had to be really distasteful postings…
Very few dare object – this post has been since deleted
97. Yes…it’s said you Posted on “Free Republic for Years!” Yet…
you had some “transformation” and ended up here on DU where you trash folks who’ve been here for YEARS…WORKING FOR YEARS against the RIGHT WING…and YOU THINK YOU ARE SPECIAL and ABOVE US!
You who spent your years “over there” but come HERE and TRASH WORKERS FOR YEARS FOR DEMOCRATS!
EXPLAIN THAT…My FRIEND, “MINERAL MAN.”
As a CHRISTIAN…I should be so ACCEPTING of your “Saul Moment ..struck down on Road to Damascus” in the BLINDING LIGHT….
But, I don’t trust you seeing how you BULLY and SWAGGER your way around Democratic Underground.
What Say You? Permalink
But they are soon put in their place
129. And I don’t trust anyone who does nothing but trash a Democratic President on a Democratic site.
Go figure. Permalink
Another one ripe for deletion
141. so you were patronizing at Free Republic as well, assuming
you could change minds to your superior way of thinking. We lesser folk are just soo privileged to have you in our midst. Permalink
99. Ah…the GREAT SAGE comes to Share his WISDOM about his Years at “FEEPERLAND”
and we are to sit in AWE of his GREAT WISDOM! Give me a break..from your SAGE WISDOM! Permalink
Preserving them as so many re deleted
Obey Teh Leader is the only thing required for total trust. Nothing changed from 2008 Karl Rove was believed more than Paul Krugman.
The Freeper’s beatification is even more jarring when Skinner is whitewashing it all
We are all progressives here. We all share the same core values. Our arguments — when we have them — are about the details. It is easy to believe that a different opinion on the details is a clue to ones opinion on the big picture stuff. But here on DU, that usually isn’t the case. We all want the same things.
yeah, all. Freepers, Cat Food commission boosters and others – they are all progressives. And everyone screaming “bitch” and “cunt” in 2008. Very progressive. Until Dear leader declares the word to be icky at least.
I am thinking – strong DUdie contender.
Much debate followed by the right comment
20. “Here’s a shiny object…don’t forget to vote next week.” n/t Permalink
Is there a shadow of a doubt I see?
Notice the apologetic tone
Moderators: If a candid discussion on Obama, Democratic Party policy, and Republican methods of hijacking the agenda are not permitted then please just delete this post.
Ends with unwarranted hope
17. I Just Hope He’s Learned His Lesson.
Would suck if he went back to business as usual after November again.
Yeah. Hope. And don’t forget Change.
eventually this mindboggling definition came
10. He is a progressive pragmist
he governs so that he can get things pass and move the country forward. It might not move as far out (left) as you would like but it sure as hell isn’t moving backwards and he isn’t standing still (centrist).Permalink
Got news for Angee: HCR, reinstating DADT, Catfood commission – sure as hell move(d) us backwards . But the smart comment is this one
27. does Robert Gibbs know this?
he’s going to think his boss is on drugs. Permalink
Of course, Obama would also have to call himself a whiner.
And the most popular thread on DU celebrate Obama’s “reaching out to the common man” (as represented by the Daily Show audience) It gets my DUdie,
I think I saw a different side of him than I’d ever seen before.
I loved the fact that he made himself vulnerable and opened himself
to any questions that were asked of him. (How many of YOU would
allow themselves to be cross-examined by the likes of Jon Stewart?)
Seems like Obama really reached out to the common man. Basically,
he explained himself and I, for one, loved that.
There are many more gushing paragraphs after this one, but the “common man” got to me.
