  •  So you'd just as soon let a republican be elected? (0+ / 0-)

    Like there was no difference between Gore and Bush?

      between Gore and Obama?

      Obama just does not seem to be willing to fight for what I believe to be Democratic positions. I did not see him push for a Public Option (and certainly not for single payer health care). He will not close Guantanamo. KSM will not be prosecuted in an American courtroom. He will not leave Iraq or Afganistan. Warrentless wiretaps have not ended. And so forth.

      Obama may not be as bad as a Repug. But he's not as good as a Dem at this point either. He's the most moderate Republican President we could have hoped for at this point in time.

      •  So, support a primary challenge (0+ / 0-)

        maybe move the window lefwards a bit, win or lose.  Then you fight for whichever is the better option in the general just like everyone else.

        Or you could just whine on a blog.
