Here’s a sad realization

If I had wanted a Republican as President…..

I cannot go there, I just can’t.

I wanted Obama to be our President, I really did.

And so I worked for him, donated to his campaign, and for what?

He is becoming a gift for the Republicans.

I am sick at heart…

We keep saying, it’s just the first two years, and he has two years to go…He’ll fix it, he will…

I no longer trust this to be true.

When I permit my mind to contemplate all of this, I become truly scared, for my country, and my family and friends…

well, almost realization. Still, the loyal Os are trying

7. I guess you’re just ignoring promises kept

. . . and many parts of our Democratic agenda that have been advanced so far as a result of this presidency.

‘Gift to republicans’ just isn’t accurate or fair at all. Permalink

Good one! Not fair!

255. Yes, ask President Bill Clinton

He managed to get plenty done with a Republican Congress and Democratic one. Amazing that the “Harvard President” cannot manage to do anything be “compromise” for nothing gained at all.

Boy, did I waste my vote, money and walking in my neighborhood in 2008. Fool me once, shame on you….fool me twice, shame on me….he WILL not fool me again! Permalink

NOW he remembers!

Most Terrible Cakes Ever Seen !

Mr. President, you’ve lost my respect. You’ve lost my admiration. You’ve lost my vote.

I’m disappointed with you. I’m saddened by you. I am angry that I believed in the hope you promised us, and then turned your back on us.

As that lady at a town hall meeting said, “I’m tired of defending you.”

You asked us to be patient. Patience doesn’t include being repeatedly sold out.

You promised us change. But you didn’t mention it was change for the worse.

You implicitly asked for our trust. And then you betrayed us.

I have no idea how you view your performance in office. And I no longer care.

Please step aside in 2012 and allow us to vote for someone who will stand up for us.

You held out to us the dream of greatness. Yet, you’ve become a small, pathetic man. And nothing saddens me more than that

You’ve been sold a bill of goods. he never changed – was always a small pathetic man. The punditry allowed him to wear the mantles of just about everyone else and you bought it. Hook, line and sinker. There was never anything in the suit.

Some claim prescience (don’t remember this particular poster)

7. Glad some people are waking up to what others of us have screamed from the roof tops about! eom

and are branded disloyal

8. As if you ever supported this president.

Please. Permalink

The loyal Os claim amusement

More epiphanies

The Progressive: “President Obama continued down the slide toward Republicanism ….”

This one got it:

2. I’m not “puzzled” anymore…

He’s sliding toward Republicanism because he works for the same crowd the Republicans work for – I’m done wondering if he’s naive, playing chess, or needs a psychologist. Time to believe our eyes, ears and brains. Permalink

and another reaction to the many defenses

Isn’t it WAY past time to stop thinking the prez is naive or weak??

Isn’t it time to just accept that he’s smart enough to be doing what he means to do?

After all these months, my eyes, ears and brain tell me that President Obama’s idea of success is maintaining the corporate status quo while tweaking things enough to claim “historic” change. Maybe he only appears to be losing to the Republicans because we want something he doesn’t. Maybe “bipartisanship” really means both sides serving the same powerful constituents.

Just sayin’…

Unrecc away! :)

One loyal O notes

57. Oh goody – infighting amongst Democratic detractors

He’s a smart, diabolical Trojan Republican!

No, he’s a weak, needy, psychologically deficient fool!

No, he’s gullible and stupid!

No, he’s a craven empty-suit car salesman!

Good times, good times.

Ah, the “base”. Permalink

That poor, poor man!

Of course, things are different in the O’s world and my candidate for DUdie

Morning in America?-Obama recovery now in full bloom as Dow soars nearly 300 points

Morning in America may finally have arrived. The Dow is up nearly 300 points based on the fact that Europe is straightening itself out, small businesses added the most jobs in 3 years and manufacturing is growing at a decent pace. The economic policies of President Obama are finally bearing fruit!

I should add that in the end, 2012 will be decided based on the economy and the economy alone absent the prez being “caught with a dead girl or live boy” as the old saying goes.

Thanks President Obama!

P.S.: For those of you who say the stock market isn’t the real world, it’s up today because of really good news in the real world.

Kinda interesting he used Reagan’s imagery. I’ll be using the image one posted

45. Derp a herp derp!!!

To their credit, most debunk this. Which earns them this

35. It appears there is a segment of the DU population…

…that are actively hoping for bad news.

Not entirely sure why. Perhaps they are itching for a collapse of the current order thinking it will usher in some new age of progressivism.

For hard core political ideologues, big earthshaking changes are exciting. A slow, but steady improvement in the economy must be boring for some – and under those circumstances free market America won’t fall….. Permalink

Robert Reich: Obama “legitimizes everything the right has been saying”

Interesting , as Reich also legitimized everything Obama was saying at the time people  were making their minds.

Another inspirational figure, illustrating Reich’s observation

Really, Mr. President?!?

Asked to name a business executive he admires, the president cited Frederick Smith of FedEx, although Smith is a union-busting Republican. Smith, who was a member of Yale’s secret Skull and Bones Society along with George W. Bush and John Kerry, served as Senator John McCain’s finance chair during McCain’s failed run for the presidency….

“‘He’s an example of somebody who is thinking long-term,’ the president said of Smith in an interview with Bloomberg Businessweek, adding that he ‘really enjoyed talking’ with him at a February 4, 2009, White House luncheon.

and here’s a word from the defense

32. I can first off, Obama did not say he was a saint – he said he admires him

There is something to admire about the fact that he conceived the idea of Fedex while at Yale – and got a “D” on the project. He then was able to start from scratch and create a company that has thrived. That is impressive and creative – and, as you can see by the Yale grade, it was not at all obvious that going up against the post office was at all a reasonable idea. So, as a businessman, he does get credit for being innovative, creating a successful business plan and implementing it.

Other parts of how he runs his business are obviously less admirable. The union busting is an example.

and from someone who ironically calls themselves “young but wise”

14. He also admires MLK and Gandhi.

President Obama looks at the positives not just the negatives in people. Permalink

Mr. President, just quit and become the labor movement leader some progressives want you to be.

So seriously, Mr. President, why try to please progressives at all? Just quit. Just quit and pick up a bullhorn and become the labor leader that they seek. They need a voice, and no one else has stood up. The idea of an organic intellectual is lost to them – they want to go straight to the top. And that person is YOU.

One comment takes care of it

10. This post is so full of straw it should be declared a fire hazard.

And I’m getting more than a little irritated at how these attacks on progressives are allowed on DU whereas calling someone a “cheerleader” gets you deleted  Permalink

Looking back for signs they missed (That big I heart Reagan on his shirt excluded)

Do you remember the article on Obama’s time as Harvard Law Review Pres?

If I remember right, all of his supporters became unhappy w/ him because he tried too hard to woo the conservatives. Sound familiar? Should have been a sign.

Another standard spin they never tire of
