    He's back at fifty?

    PUMA fail.

  • sorry, he dropped below 50 faster - and by % his collapse has been unique.

    "I'm going to hold my breath until the facts go away!!"

    Last week, President Obama's approval rating slipped below 50 percent in the Gallup poll for the first time since he took office, making him the third-fastest president to fall below that bar since World War II.  Ford did it in his third month, Clinton in his fourth, and Reagan in his tenth.

    but keeping making shit up if you find some comfort in your fantasy the Clinton/Bayh could've beat McCain/Lieberman, and that Hillary, the fighter who lost every fight she ever fought, would've been a great progressive leader.

  • Are you two personally acquainted? Or have you adopted him as your special internet friend because he turned his hyperbole on that evil Obama who was so mean to Hillary!! (that he made her his Secretary of State).

  • .  His polls are incredibly bad - the worst in modern times.  Both Huckabee and Sarah Palin are ONE POINT behind him in recent national polling.

    His poll numbers are better than Reagan's or Clinton's at comparable points in their first terms. and you're comparing Obama's job performance ratings to Huck's and SP's personal favorablity ratings.

    You really shouldn't get your info from Laura Bush' former press secretary, you poor sad bitter little PUMA.

    I hadn't even seen the first time that you picked the stupidest line in Taibbi's rant as evidence

    Inspector General Neil Barofsky thinks it might hit nearly $24 trillion ultimately

    I said it during the primaries, and its still true today: Even though I preferred Obama, Hillary Clinton deserved much better supporters than she had, from her husband and Mark Penn right down to teh internet poo-flingers who made her look bad.

  • comment on a post Can Hillary Supporters Start Saying "Told Ya So"? over 4 years ago

    an absurd tantrum, counterfactual on just about every level.

  • the only Dem Senator listed as a member of the Progressive Caucus (B. Sanders the other Senator).

    His cousin Mark, alas, seems to be waiting on the sidelines to figure out the safest path.

  • I thought Cantwell had been fairly forthright in her support of the PO?

    Now, what do you have?

    A Democrat in the White House, which we wouldn't have if Hillary, Mark, Howard and Lanny had somehow managed to blunder their way to the nomination?

  • on a comment on Hillary's supporters were right over 4 years ago

    It's Obama's fault she was bored with the Senate? He forced the "fighter" who's been "fighting for thirty five years" and "will never stop fighting" (she told me so repeatedly during the campaign) to walk away? She couldn't say no to Obama, but she was going to break Max Baucus and Kent Conrad?

    Do you know for a fact he didn't offer her the lower profile office of HHS? When he reached out to her to join his cabinet, she asked for HHS and he refused? Hmmmm?

  • on a comment on Hillary's supporters were right over 4 years ago

    who is probably the biggest expert on the politics of health care of anyone in the Democratic Party.

    Why, then, did she abandon the cause by leaving the Senate for a cabinet post that has nothing to do with health care?

  • comment on a post Hillary's supporters were right over 4 years ago

    I think Hillary Clinton would have been able use the kind of threats and browbeating that Barack Obama doesnt seem to be able to use to get key members of Congress to go her way.

    What magic beans do you think she would have used?

    Also, assuming she would have one is a pretty big leap of counterfactual faith.

  • I have to say, I've been feeling somewhat discouraged lately, but seeing the PUMAs and Politico join.... hands for a circle jerk of self-righteousness is giving me a renewed sense of confidence.

  • Perception is personal. To me the "fighter" thing rang hollow and couldn't be backed up by anything that preceded Obama's win in Iowa. YMMV.

  • You're reading too much into my response to "HILLARY IS BETTER IN EVERYEST WAY!!!"

    Again, I object more to PUMA fantasies than the relative merits of Hillary Clinton.
