Damn you Obama

(subtitled - Kent is not alone....)

Well, it looks like the lazy disappointing non-partisan wimp in the White House is at it again, giving Wall Street a free pass while leaving our fine Majorities in the Congress out to dry. What's the point of having power if refuse to use it? You can kiss the Robust Public Option good-bye, and die a pauper knowing that Single-Payer was within our reach, but the hand of Obama refused to lift a finger! Don't get me wrong, I like the President, it's just his shiftlessness that bothers me.

We worked so hard for a majority in 2006 and 2008 and now all of our work is about to be flushed down the toilet.  Our last hurrah as a majority could be the passage of some sickly pathetic form of healthcare overhaul that doesn't do anything at all.  

This has been the shortest era of dominance for one political party in history, and we all know who failed us: those snarky cheerleaders at MyDD. But I hear there's a plan.

Re: Damn you Obama

Wait a minute, didn't Rahm take care of your team this month?  The way things are going I'm going to need double unicorn postings for a while.

Re: Damn you Obama

Aha!

Proof that you're nothing more than a paid shill!

Which of the others are members of your 'team'?

The cleansing is a comin'!

Re: Damn you Obama

The President's compensation is fixed by statute, 3 U.S.C. 102, at $400,000 per year.  Any side income he might receive from e.g., the Nobel Prize, is a separate issue.

Re: Damn you Obama

Actually I meant to direct that comment to the diarist now that he's been outed as the ringleader of the paid blogging shills.

There's no ring to lead

It's just one guy with multiple sockpuppets, and you're one of them.  Stop trying to deceive us!

Huh?

This is what passes for a recommended diary here these days?

Am I missing something?  Is there some kind of snark here?

Re: Mind if I smoke?

Hey thanks, thurst!
 You don't know how pleased I am to be the recipient of such ringing endorsement - especially since it's your very first comment here at MyDD. (You don't get the first time back, if you get my drift.)

Welcome.

You're gonna fit right in, I can tell already!

I'm probably not what you think, but maybe I am...

Actually, it's not my first comment, I just haven't commented in a long, long while.  I've been coming here since around '03, but I'm generally rather quiet.  Roundabout Summer of 2008, as I'm sure you know, this place lost its goldang mind, and it became a bit depressing even to log in, let alone get involved in the back-and-forth.  

I haven't paid much attention to the RDs for a bit.  

As it were, I suspect I just kinda wandered in all Kevin-Spacey-in-Glengarry-Glenross style into some game of which I don't know the angle.

Why I stupidly commented, I know not...long day, two jobs...many apologies...(i think?)

Re: Well

MyDD is a very sane place now. Welcome back.

Eep zorch!

Ha, I'm gonna take that for sarcasm...(i don't even know anymore)...

Anyway, looking back at your voluminous amount of writing, it would appear we're on the same side with the same basic pet peeve (i mean, i've read comments by you many times before, but honestly, it's hard to keep track of who's who)...I don't quite get this diary, but I'm sure it's just me not knowing the context...if it's alright with you, I'munna climb up back on the turnip truck...

It's a little complicated.
