When Obama shifted to the center, most Obama supporters decided to give him a pass and understood that his campaign feels he has to do this to be elected. I agree that there is no left anymore in this country, and accept this although I decry it. Despite the rhetoric, one can read inbetween the lines that he is less bellicose than McCain with Iran--much to Israel's chagrin, but that's too bad, isn't it? Yet Obama is the best hope we've got, and then some, and we really don't have a choice.
I don't trust the polls nor the still uncorrected voting machine system, and another stolen election will doom the US into oblivion. The neocons don't care about the US, though. They are determined there be no accountability--perhaps terrified Israel's role will be exposed--and I fear Obama will pander to this with catastrophic sequelae.How can he restore global respect if he allows accountability to die? I can only reiterate the European view that the uninformed self-destructive tendencies of the American electorate are legion and may yet prevail, and then may god help us all. Sheeple on their way to the slaughter.
