      if you look at the links and consider the context.

      Yes, I could write a much longer diary.

      Anyway, the points (as clearly stated)

      1. We need left critiques of Obama;
      1. Big Tent Democrat uses Taiibi's piece which castigates Obama for relying too much on Clinton era centrists to argue for reigniting the primary wars;
      1. Ignoring that at least one factor (not the only one) that pulled Obama rightward on many issues was Hillary Clinton;
      1. Reigniting the primary wars is silly and self defeating.
    •  We're refighting the primary wars to distract... (1+ / 0-)

      ... ourselves from the nightmare of the Obama administration.

      It's not just us - or TalkLeft. The Hillary die-hards at Corrente are doing it too.

      I don't begrudge them clinging to the fantasy that Hillary would have been any better. That's their consolation prize for losing.

          ... through Obama making war-mongering and torture a bipartisan norm, the open looting of the Treasury by his Wall Street cronies, and now his Bush-carryover Fed chairman floating trial balloons about gutting Medicare and Social Security, I envy your sang froid.

          Hats off to you.

          •  So the answer to the question (0+ / 0-)

            ... "Hyperbolic much?" is obviously "Yes."
