Sorry folks I'm done playing. Just got another Email from the OFA folks telling me "How proud I should be of my President" because of last night’s speech.

Well, tell you what. I'm not too proud. And It's not a topic I've heard much about here.
But, I heard a lot of talk about "How the debt is the boogey man", and "We need to compromise", and the big shocker.. follow BS "Bowles Simpson"!

Sorry kittens, I'm a little miffed, especially after the press conference where I hear that chained CPI is back on the "Grand Bargain" table again.

I mean I hate to say I told ya so, but.. I told ya so! Right after the election I heard all the confidants floating the "cut the safety net" balloons, and knew this was coming.
So anyway, here's the memo I sent back to Mr. Messina :
---
Sorry folks, I’ve had it with you!
I’m SICK and Tired of hearing about DEBT, Austerity, Grand Bargains, Chained CPI, Shared Sacrifice, and all the rest!

I did not vote for a center right republican!
The President puts enough progressive sprinkles on top to keep the idiot base happy, but I’ve seen through it all.

He’s just working for Wall St. the same at all the rest of Washington. His fondness and fanaticism about the Faux Debt

Red Herring is proof of that. His willingness to keep offering up the safety net as an sacrifice is the glue that binds it.

The repeated love words to BS, Bowles Simpson, seals it.
Put the banksters in jail, starts some real stimulus like FDR, INCREASE ScoSec, and firm up the safety net.

Stop emailing me like I’m some kind of idiot until you start acting like you’re NOT a conservative!

Put THAT in your Email Database. Or maybe your drone strike list?
----
Twice now I pulled out all the stops for this guy cuz, "He was better than the alternative", yeah, really? Was he?

All the stuff we lambasted "W" about WRT secret nasty stuff seems to still be there. But now we have secret killer air robots too, that we can use on anyone, anywhere!
A mom in FL who organized an OWS rally has an FBI file as thick as the Oxford dictionary? WTF?

HSBC launders drug $$$ but is too big to jail by our Attny Gen. HUH?

We propose legislation to attack climate change, but in the same paragraph laude fracking, and extol expanded oil drilling on Govt. land??

Plus the biggie, which is we keep chasing this DEBT red herring like it's actually something real, and hold up out safety net to it, for no reason! Repeat after me.
Sco Sec does not contribute to the debt - So why are we discussing it at all?

I posted a diary called "My Story" the other day, and really wanted to post a considered diary that drew points from that either last night, or this evening.
But, jeez! I just can't get over how thrown under the bus I feel.

Yeah, I'm happy we still don't have "W", or McCain, or Mr. 47%, but REALLY, other
that a lot of talk (where a lot of it scares me now) where are we going? I mean in a way that really MATTERS if your looking at eating cat food soon?

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.

    Red Herring is proof of that. His willingness to keep offering up the safety net as an sacrifice is the glue that binds it.

    Frankly, I'm tired of the attacks like this.  I agree the defict fever is bs, but overall the president is changing the conversation to jobs now.   His performance since the dog days of 2011 has been very good.  

    In my view, he's made some mistakes (Bowles-Simpson, wanting Grand Bargains), but he's about all we have preventing extremist right ring rule and he is able to reach people.  The Republicans really are much worse.  He won re-election and it did matter.

    I'm no fan of chained cpi, but I can disagree on that without the attacks.

    So drop out of OFA if it makes you crazy.  

    This is a fucking class war, and while Obama is no socialist, he is effective in fighting the extremists.

    get your name off the list and refuse to send money.

    They can't get dough if they don't ask.  So they ask everyone on the list.

    Get off the list.

    Simple.

    Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek. Barack Obama

  •  Question, how much direct action have you (3+ / 0-)

    taken to win elections.  The folks I know from my area that describe themselves as progressive and reflect the same reactions you do in this diary never come out and help when there's real work to do.  They have very very strong opinions, mostly criticisms, but always talk about how incredibly busy they are when there's doors to knock and calls to make.

    people like you who NEED to find fault in everything obama does have a distorted view of president obama's presidency.

    read my diary

    president obama is way underappreciated in terms of what he has done for progressives and america.

    he made some mistakes and his "bring people together" had side effects no sugarcoating. However, it is much more complicated than that and he is blamed WAY too much.

      probably an increase to the SS/Medicare ages (remember, he said he was opposed to them not that he would veto them. exact words matter as we have been told on many occasions).
