"He raised the white flag, even before the fight got underway in Congress"--as did the Clintons before him, because none of them were really committed to healthcare for all. Because there is nothing that they truly believe in, other than their own ambition. I mean, this guy is supposed to be smart. If it wasn't all a cynical ploy to string along liberals, this has got to be the most ham-handed, idiotic political maneuver since W. J. Bryan ran for president--and that doesn't do justice to Bryan. If it isn't crass manipulation, Obama isn't nearly as smart as people think he is. And I don't think he's stupid.
How do you like being played for a sucker again, by people who claim to represent you?
The best defense is a good offense. Karl Rove understands this. Franklin Roosevelt understood this. Military leaders understand this and call it "taking the fight to the enemy." Democratic misleaders don't understand this because they don't believe there's anything worth fighting for, besides their re-election.
How can Obama not see he is destroying his presidency? Because he isn't. Clinton got re-elected using this same triangulation strategy. The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee is raking in the big bucks from industry lobbyists. For them, things are going great. They can always count on people's fear of what the Republicans would do to get our votes. And it's the nation as a whole that is getting flushed down the toilet.
Get a grip. Like most of the misleaders in the Democratic Party, Obama is not on our side. He is working against us. And he is winning.
