  •  Good thing Obama ran on "hope and change" (7+ / 0-)

    because "despair and status quo" isn't much of a slogan, as we're all, unfortunately, finding out.

      it means we were "illusioned" before.

        Go back and read some of the FISA threads. They're quite... informational.

        I have to laugh: according to many rather delusional people at DK, the reason we lost seats in the 2010 midterm elections is because this blog contained a lot of criticism of Obama, which low-information voters read, absorbed, and took with them to the polls.

        These same folks were singing the SAME fucking refrain, back when Candidate Obama cast a vote for FISAAA. "No! Shut up! You're giving his opponents ammunition! You'll ruin the election for him!"

        And somehow, in spite of our Magic Campaign-Killing Criticism, he won that election.

    •  There Was Change in Washington (0+ / 0-)

      K-Street's checks were then made out to Democrats. While Obama was still being contested by Hillary, he swore up & down he would vote against the FISA Bill because it was a stay-out-of-jail card for the Bush Crime Family. It was shortly after Hillary conceded that Senator Obama did a 180 & voted for FISA. I then voted third party. If the Green Party had won, McCain wouldn't have won either. But I know we must be realistic. Just think, in '72 & '84 the Democratic Party's presidential ticket only lost 49-out-of-50 states both times. Why they carried one more state than ANY third-party. I worked as a volunteer on both McGovern's & Mondale's campaigns. I believed in them because they were Democrats. I do not believe in Obama. In my book, he's a member of one wing of the American Corporate Party.
