Thank you! It is my experience that those of us that made the mistake of voting for him against our better judgement are the ones that are truly disappointed, not those who seemed to believe that "hope" was a credible campaign platform (you know the type-- the ones that could not come up with a single sentence coherently explaining why exactly they were so enthusiastic.)
The seas of campaign placards reading only "HOPE" or "CHANGE" were utterly surreal, like something you'd see in a music video.
People were devastated at what America had become. They voted for change.And a miracle occurred...they were changed from thinking everything was terrible to thinking everything they hated was now OK. Everybody's so different, I haven't changed.
"I really don't understand why people like Westen can't make their critiques of Obama's leadership in a way that takes into account obvious political realities." -Kevin DrumYeah; the political realities. Just like the ratchet effects of TABOR, and legislation like it. If you accept the political realities as given, you've nowhere to go but in the direction the ratchet is already organized to pull you. You lose ground on every acknowledgement of the "political realities." I wish a bit more "political reality" on folks like Kevin Drum. Maybe when the realities actually bite them - instead of being some vision off on the horizon - then Kev won't be quite so willing to accept those political realities as a necessary condition. I'm getting real tired of the political realities defense for political ineptitude on one level, and doin' what I wanted to do anyway on another.- bystander
Hey AnonKeven Drum knows he is boxed in by his view of reality and therefore can only see speaking from impotence and apathy as the only realistic way forward.And even better for him, he gets paid for spreading his dead ender gospel.
"And a miracle occurred...they were changed from thinking everything was terrible to thinking everything they hated was now OK."
And a miracle occurred...they were changed from thinking everything was terrible to thinking everything they hated was now OK.That's what they meant by "Be the change".
