After two years of screwing the taxpayers – President Obama wants to send you a thank you note.

US Drone Attacks Are No Laughing Matter, Mr. Obama

Speaking at the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner in May, Barack Obama spotted teen pop band the Jonas Brothers in the audience. “Sasha and Malia are huge fans, but, boys, don’t get any ideas,” deadpanned the president, referring to his daughters. “Two words for you: predator drones. You will never see it coming.” The crowd laughed, Obama smiled, the dinner continued. Few questioned the wisdom of making such a tasteless joke; of the US commander-in-chief showing such casual disregard for the countless lives lost abroad through US drone attacks.

and belatedly

almost as bad as Bush looking for WMDs under his desk.  Permalink

More signs of fatigue

Anyone else sick of the Obama Admin text spamming them?

God, when I gave them my phone number I didn’t know they were going to spam me with texts wishing me Happy New Year and other random bullshit texts through the year. As if Obama himself is sending the texts or even knows about them. :eyes:

On edit: Thanks to DUer Bryan for instructing me how to stop the texts. Thanks also for everyone else who chimed in! :hi:

Of course, not Obama’s fault. next time watch whom you give your # too.

Chris Hedges: “The Left Has Nowhere to Go”

There is no major difference between a McCain administration, a Bush and an Obama administration. Obama, in fact, is in many ways worse. McCain, like Bush, exposes the naked face of corporate power. Obama, who professes to support core liberal values while carrying out policies that mock these values, mutes and disempowers liberals, progressives and leftists. Environmental and anti-war groups, who plead with Obama to address their issues, are little more than ineffectual supplicants.

and from the loyalists

Is the left going to wake up and finally remember who is the real enemy?

Or are they going to continue the war against the most progressive president in decades, while strengthening the most radical and crazy Republican party ever?

I sort of know the answer, but i hope to be surprised.

a good answer to this

1. the real enemy is whoever rolls back the New Deal

democratic, republican, DLCer, Third Way’er, or whatever.  1. the real enemy is whoever rolls back the New Deal

11. Why does it seem freeper ideology is creeping in to DU?

If your ideology sucks, it needs an enemy to work. As the American “left”, we don’t need an enemy because we are right.

Obama Said to Consider William Daley for Top White House Post

Yes, he is the brother of the former Mayor. Best stuff is the reason for the pick

“Daley (former CEO of JP Morgan Chase) is highly respected by the business community and has great connections,” Douglas J. Elliott, an economic studies fellow at the Washington-based Brookings Institution, said in an e-mail. Naming Daley to a top post, he said, “could help mend fences” with executives who have complained that the Democratic administration is anti-business.

or as David Frum tweets

The funniest part is the expected reaction of the Os. In light of a recent DUdie
