  •  What's the common narrative? (0+ / 0-)

    Women should be scared shitless re: abortion and contraception.  What has Obama done to counter the R initiative against women in the states?

    Immigrants should be scared shitless of...

    Not sure, since the Obama Administration has been ruthless toward undocumented workers.  Maybe immigrants should be scared shitless of being called names even though both sides arrest and deport them.

    The poor should be scared shitless of what?  Food stamp reductions?  That's bad, but a federal jobs program like the WPA would be something that would actually be positive.  Who's proposing that?

    The middle class?  Who's fighting for unions that helped create the middle class?  I haven't seen Obama's walking shoes since he's been elected.  Have you? Even in the critical fight in Wisconsin?

    If you're outside the U. S. and have the misfortune of being a brown person in the wrong town, neither party makes a difference on whether the droners will get you.

    Where's the real solidarity?

      about the states? LOL, do you think he can tell the states what laws they can and can't pass?
      Do you know why Obama's deportations are up? Because the INS is now run by a competent person who does their job. They're taking criminals out of prisons and jails and sending them back to their own countries. They're  deporting people arrested for being undocumented instead of letting them languish in private prisons (in some cases, with the entire family, including children) in Texas, Arizona and Colorado.
      What are you doing to fight for the unions? What are you doing to fight for the middle class and the poor?
       Why don't you get off your ass and do something instead of expecting someone else to do it all for you?

        but there is an Attorney General.

        He's supposed to enforce lots of stuff, including the Bill of Rights via the 14th Amendment, along with the Wagner Act, and basic fraud affecting interstate commerce against "savvy businessmen."

        I am off my ass, and not so foolishly as pimping for some politician.  I organize at my local level to fight for peace and justice.  I'm a union organizer, risking arrest when necessary.

        What do you do other than pimp for Obama on a blog?

        And tell the Hispanic community that Obama's deportations are of evil criminals only.  LOL.

          who have been caught crossing the border illegally to be criminals. Maybe you should learn to read- Bush is the one who put them in those prisons. With their wives or husbands, with their children.
          Maybe being sent back to Mexico is better than being in prison?
