Yeah, you read that right.  Our "fierce advocate" is telling us to "shut up" in his native Hawaiian because he's apparently feeling bullish about his chances of facing a primary challenge.

Yeah, real clever Obama.  I guess he thought that'd slide under the radar, ... you know ... like we can't use the Google to decode his latest 11-dimensional chess move.  Pffft!  Yet another douche move from the Appeaser-In-Chief.

Clinton, of course, never faced a primary challenger in his path to re-election. And Paul Begala, Clinton's close adviser, predicted that Obama would coast to re-nomination as well.

On Tuesday, polling numbers were released confirming that suspicion. According to a CNN/Opinion Research survey, a full 78 percent of Democrats want Obama to win the nomination for a second term in office -- up five percent from late October. At roughly the same point in his presidency, only 57 percent of Democrats wanted Clinton to be re-nominated.

Yeah, big whoop Obama.  But you know something, you still don't get it.  You still don't get it and I'm going to have to break it down for you over the jump.

You know Obama, you might not be in much danger of facing my vote for your primary challenger, but if I could I would hide rate you for seeing hate where it doesn't exist.  I don't know what you thought you'd accomplish by stepping on your base in Hawaiian.  We're not birthers.  We don't hate you.  In fact, we desperately want you to succeed.  Many of us voted for you and volunteered for hours and donated to the max.  We just want you to keep your promises, and a lot of us are worried that you just don't get it, and that you're way more into bipartisanship than you are into us.  And you know something else?  Polls can change and they will if you maintain this destructive course.  That's a change I can believe in.  

And speaking of trends, I'm noticing one.  This time, you dogged us in Hawaiian.  That's down from "sanctimonious" and waay down from "retarded".  I ... I'm wondering if you're feeling so bullish after all.  Why not tell us to fuck off if you really don't believe you're going to face a primary challenge?  We know you can be thuggish when you want to be.  Why not go hard in the paint and tell us to buy our own damned fries?


Well, whatever.  I'm proud to be among the 22% that are sick of the lies, the half-measures, the bullying, the appeasement, the naivete, the colossal arrogance, the blindness, the tone-deafness, the bipartisanship, the corporatism, the neo-liberalism, the Third Way-ism, the hero worship, the false accusations of hate, the TSA groping, the compromising, the insults and the whole litany of F.A.I.L. that is your Presidency sir.

There may not be many of us, but we're the only adults in the room, and we aren't going anywhere, so you'd better "Pa'a ka waha" and get used to it.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
