• comment on a post Obama didn't pander, before he did over 6 years ago

    'Obama's different on taxes, he tells the truth and doesn't pander.... wanna meaningful tax cut?'

  • all the grassroots/netroots progressives.

    My bad.

  • You still didn't address the reality of my post.

    Hillary has lost the support of all the big progessive organizations/names.  

    Why is that?

  • So, are you saying Olbermann, Kos, Arianna, Air America jocks and MoveOn.org support Hillary?

    Whatever.

    And, btw, I've been a practising attorney for three years.  Joined MYDD way back when I was a law student, probably before you even heard of it.

  • And I usually don't rise to the bait.  Don't know what got over me this time.

  • You forget how arrogant Clinton was right up until Iowa, when she was humbled big time.  

    Remember how everyone was talking about a coronation instead of an election?  She seemed so unbeatable, and acted like it.

    That's the posture you take when you're in the lead.  It is galling to those not in the lead (and their supporters), but that's the way it goes.

    But to act as if Clinton's never been appallingly arrogant in this primary season is beyond absurd.

    in a few weeks, and you all can go crawl back in the hole you've come out of.

    Seriously, the Clinton campaign has just brought out the worst in the Democratic Party.

    I can't wait unitl I can say, "Good-bye and good riddance."

  • You've been deservedly and effectively mocked.

    It's amazing how easy it is to mock the Hillary arguments in most of the diaries posted here.  That you can't see how weak your arguments are, and how easily they can be made against your own candidate, is mind-boggling.

  • quelled the potential storm.

    I know it did with my ultra conservative step-grandfather, who, before he saw (and later read) the speech, said that Obama didn't deserve to be the Democratic nominee of any office because Wright was his pastor.

    After seeing and reading the speech, he changed his rhetoric dramatically.  He now says he can't support Obama because, even though he's a great orator, he doesn't have any breadth (whatever that means).

    Also, he no longer believes Obama is a Muslim.

    Now, there's no way in hell he'd ever vote for a Democrat.  But, for him to change his views about Obama so dramatically in such a short period of time....

    Speaks volumes for Obama's ability to communicate to the public.

  • on a comment on I Am A Democrat over 6 years ago

    And why should Obama play second fiddle to a gal he clearly has beat in the nomination process and who is clearly no more qualified based on experience, and clearly less qualified based on judgment?

    Lori, your arguments are juvenile.  And so, so easily turned right back at you.

    How old are you, anyway?  My guess is 14.

  • Yes, I know you're mocking Obama.  And he will continue to be mocked for his stuttering.

    Better than someone's TALL TALES caught on tape (oh, my!)

  • None of which got much attention from the MSM.

    Those weren't MAJOR addresses to the country.  Those were TYPICAL addresses.

    That's my point!

    Oh brother, nevermind.  I give up.

  • That address is already being taught and analyzed in schools and universities throughout the U.S. and the world.

    No, it will not go down in history as his best speech ever, as he's just getting started.

    So, now you want to WOW me with some legislation Clinton has pushed through congress (without specifics), without acknowledging that Obama has also pushed some legislation through congress?

    Look, neither Clinton or Obama have high marks with regards to getting any meaningful legisltion passed into law, as NEITHER has spent that much time in office (you want legislative experience, you should be advocating for Richardson, Biden or Dodd).

    But as far as LEADERSHIP goes?  Well, if Clinton wins the presidency, she's going to have to do something called a STATE OF THE UNION address.  It's an important speech, you'll agree.

    I'd like to know Hillary can handle such an address to the country.  I haven't seen that yet.

  • Offering himself up up to run for president, to go through all he is going through, is the greatest thing any black person could have done to highlight issues of racial inequality.

    See?

    Plus, he didn't have the advantage of be married to a former POTUS.  He also has the disadvantage of being named Barack Hussein Obama.  

    So, yeah, he's had to confront his race AND his religion (because of his name, his background, and his pastor) head on.  And he did it in a major address to the country.

    How has Ms. Clinton confronted her perceived problems of gender and riding on her husband's coattails to the nomination?

    She can't ignore this crap any more than Obama could ignore his crap.  Crying "racism" on the one hand or "mysogny" on the other won't do.
