You're right about the thought behind some of the Obama criticisms from the left, but it still sounds too much to me like some nasally-voiced geek yelling at the coach from the cheap seats and hen calling the local "Talk About Sports" show every night to bellyache. I didn't mean to insult your intelligence, but if the lip fits, wear it.
Actually, I think the problem is too many know-it-all bloggers seem to have everything figures out and that this President is soem kind of a) either head-in-toe-clouds dreamer, or b) a clueless intellectual, or c) just plain dumb. I'm starting to think of the liberal blogosphere as a phone-in sports talk show where all the "Fans" pile on the home team (especially with all the calls to "Fire (fill in the blank with name of Blog Bircher Bogeyman)." Since you people are such greaty geniuses and such invincible campaign strategists, why don't you go to Washington and offer to trade places with the President. I'm sure that after you're done, there will be unlimited peace and prosperity with progressive Democrats in every elected office. Go ahead. You're as good at politics as you are coaching sports teams from your perch 16 rows back.
Actually, Mr. Defeatist Prick, I didn't vote for Obama. I'm just a citizen and student of history who has seen all this beflore and am more than a little put off by all the Obama-bashing in the liberal blogosphere.
The temper of the times my be on your side no matter what happens on Nov. 2, and all you do is bellyache while encouraging Jerome and his little buddy Kent Limbaugh, along with the rest of the PUMA preserve in their incessant moaning and groaning.
I didn't vote for Obama, but I'm honest enough to recognize that he has accomplshed a great deal in less than two years and a lot of it has been for the greater good, which is more than I can say for all of you in the Blog Birch Society.
This is off-topic, but I saw on Bartcop yesterday a quote from Charles Krauthammer which basically warned Republcians against underestimating Obama. I think someobdy should issue that warning to the President's so-called supporters in the fifth column left here at MyDD.
I always come to MyDD first, but I'm beginning to wonder why. Between the lefty freeper rants of Jerome, Upstate Kent, Charles Lemons, Nathan Espenall, Nate Silver, desmoinesdem and the rest of the little old lefties in tennis shoes, I'm not sure what the use is.
Maybe we could just impeach Obama. You want to go there? I'm sure Darrell Issa would welcome your support.
Besides, it's going to be another 30 years before the country's ready for your perfect leader (the liberal Shrub) and they won't last 10 minutes with you, anyway.
