    the only logical thing to do is to cheer louder for Obama.

    •  I honestly look at this through a "Make me do it" (16+ / 0-)

      lens. If push comes to shove I think there is a chance that we can make Obama have a "make me do it" moment. There is no chance with Rmoney, he wants to flat out repeal Wall St reform, as weak and watered down as it was.

      Does Cheer for Obama make sense? Certainly not. Demand he do more? Sure, that's what I've been doing, but the reality is one of these two men will be President, either Obama or Romney. Though I have a great deal of frustration with Obama, I think a Romney Presidency filled with recycled GWB/Cheney operatives and armed with a full blown austerity fetish would be an epic disaster. That being said, I wish Obama and Dems were less beholden to their big corporate donors. One can be an idealist and somehwat pragmatic at the same time, can't they. On Obama my opinions are still evolving (pardon the term), but do you really think I am cheerleading for him? I thought you'd give me more credit than that.

        I don't think the dude is on your side.  

        Obama my opinions are still evolving (pardon the term), but do you really think I am cheerleading for him? I thought you'd give me more credit than that.
        I'm glad they're evolving, you always evolve and that's why I love you MoT.  You are not a cheerleader, but you seem to be getting splinters form riding the fence on this.  It is massive cognitive dissonance to pretend Obama supports the 99% against the banks.  Or at all.  Read that article and get back to me.  Have you been pepper sprayed?  Evicted at night?  You may already have been lumped in with terrorists at DHS.  

        If you haven't earned my vote when the time comes, don't blame me when you lose.

          A new trove of heavily redacted documents provided by the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in response to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request filed by the Partnership for Civil Justice Fund (PCJF) on behalf of filmmaker Michael Moore and the National Lawyers Guild makes it increasingly evident that there was and is a nationally coordinated campaign to disrupt and crush the Occupy Movement.
          The new documents, which PCJF National Director Mara Verheyden-Hilliard insists “are likely only a subset of responsive materials,” in the possession of federal law enforcement agencies, only “scratch the surface of a mass intelligence network including Fusion Centers, saturated with 'anti-terrorism' funding, that mobilizes thousands of local and federal officers and agents to investigate and monitor the social justice movement.”
          And further down...
          The latest documents reveal “intense involvement” by the DHS’s so-called National Operations Center (NOC). In its own literature, the DHS describes the NOC as “the primary national-level hub for domestic situational awareness, common operational picture, information fusion, information sharing, communications, and coordination pertaining to the prevention of terrorist attacks and domestic incident management.”

          The DHS says that the NOC is “the primary conduit for the White House Situation Room” and that it also “facilitates information sharing and operational coordination with other federal, state, local, tribal, non-governmental operation centers and the private sector.”

          •  He won't bother (0+ / 0-)

            It doesn't fit the narrative if he wants to continue in respectable media.  If he started trashing the sitting president, he'd be a pariah with his new buddies.  

            If you haven't earned my vote when the time comes, don't blame me when you lose.
