  •  Obama has absolutely given away any hope (0+ / 0-)

    we may have had. His passion level, his rhetoric is awful. I'm still writing and calling but IF we get anything out of this it will be no thanks to Obama. If the right is going to insist Obama and Dems are socialists no matter how ridiculous that is (I only wish they had those tendencies) then why not go for it and pass real reform. The racists and right wing are winning the PR war. I live in very rural WV and the bumper stickers are amazing. Dirt poor rednecks are buying into all the fear tactics that the right is using. We think they're wing-nutty but people around here believe this shit. And so do poor urban whites who are being led to believe that liberals and blacks are trying to oppress them.
    What the hell have Democrats done in the last 30 years that would make any poor working American trust that working class interests are represented by Democrats. Nothing. Zippo. Nada.
    And Obama and Democrats in Congress continue to ignore this fact. We are getting NO LEADERSHIP at all from Obama on this. I've never heard someone talk so much and say so little- it's making me sick.
