Short diary, I have to be up and mentally active in six hours. After reading the words of our "Democratic" president tonight, I can say with 100% certainty I will NEVER vote for this man, nor any other person that claims allegiance to him. He does NOT represent me or my interests, nor what I believe in, nor what I voted for in 2008.

A "Democratic" president touting his signing of huge tax giveaways for the wealthy; mentioning "painful cuts" like they are some kind of necessary tonic that will eventually benefit "the people;" mentioning "shared sacrifice" without ONE FUCKING WORD about raising taxes on the rich; and worst of all, mentioning SEVERAL TIMES "the largest spending cuts in our history," like this is something a Democratic president should be proud of. Just a shameful performance.

This president has been one disappointment after another. Gitmo is still open. We are still fighting THREE wars (with escalation of the newest one a real possibility). He squandered one of the greatest opportunities of our lifetimes by urging the passage of, then signing, a giveaway to the insurance industry, instead of real, beneficial health care changes that will benefit ALL Americans, not just Humana CEOs and shareholders. Worst of all, we are at the point where it is acceptable for politicians to talk about ENDING FUCKING MEDICARE without instantly being screamed off the stage. Remember, we got to that sorry, sorry stage in two very short fucking years.

Listen, this man is either a loser of epic proportions, or a closet Republican. At this point, what other plausible options are there?

No, I will not clap louder.

No, I will not even clap.

I'm done.

Flame away.

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.
