We do ourselves a disservice by assuming Obama is anything other than a centrist Republican. He’s a DINO, Democrat in name only. It’s not all bad, he is occasionally willing to wrestle in the mud with ugly, wart festooned Republicans, neocons and tea party retards. A crusading liberal he’s not; we can no longer afford that perception. It’s been an expensive nicety.
Obama is at best a moderate Republican from your father’s Republican party. He campaigned to the left and has rushed to the right ever since. It’s as kind as I can be. I understand he’s accomplished some monumental things but I’m nonplussed about his real agenda and I’m both wary and weary of guessing at his sincere intentions. I’m starting to wonder whether he’s a dick of plutocratic magnitude. He surrendered the public option before the shouting began, he ignores war criminals and the crimes they committed and is embarrassingly recalcitrant when it comes to the giant bank motherfuckers that control everything that happens. He’s no FDR and he makes LBJ look like a bird of prey.
If you’re a liberal, Obama kinda sucks actually.
This has never been about merely eating our peas or peeling off a band aid.
I gotta tell you this may be as much about the environment as his personal convictions. Nature versus nurture.
The center has shifted towards hard right buffoonery. The right has jerked violently in the direction of avarice. Religious zealotry. Madness. Austerity for the working masses. Contrary to public opinion or popular sentiment. It’s amazing. They just don’t give a single shit about anything unless it has to do with raping the ordinary and enslaving them to the wealthy and corporations. I hate it. I’m absolutely astounded that they’ve been able to convince so many Americans to go along with it. I can’t believe there are so many dumbasses.
So to be fair, Obama inherited a shitstorm and has no choice but to navigate pestiferous waters.
Because Americans are dumb as shit.
How is that?
How is it that a reasonable majority keeps chasing such mendacious fatuity?
I don’t know about you but that bitch is ugly and stupid and she stinks and I can’t figure out why we keep pursuing her. No amount of makeup or perfume can possibly assuage it. You can put lipstick on a pig but that’s all it is.
Oh, sorry, I’m not talking about Michele Bachmann specifically; I’m speaking metaphorically. I hear pigs are pretty damn smart, so forgive me. And I adore women in general, so allow this trespass with the understanding that it is anything but prurient.
Even Boehner and MCconnel have given voice to reason only to be subverted by a callow, amateur, jackackass like Eric Cantor. I know he’s a jackass because he makes no sense and he can’t belie a personal agenda that’s more about Eric Cantor than the American people. I fucking hate that guy. I’d like to see him piss up a rope or actually explain his position on anything.
Bring him to me. I will kick his ass. I will make him cry.
It’s unclear whether they know what they do. They appear to be so goddamn dumb that they are willing to jeopardize the entire world economy because they are selfish, ideological, thumb sucking brats. They walk out of meetings with the President of The United States and say shit like ‘He started it’ on national television.
The road to common sense and equitable solutions used to be through the middle. I no longer believe that. Clearly, Obama no longer sees that road as a pragmatic option.
Lawrence O’Donnell is indefatigable in his insistence that Obama is playing master poker/chess with our future. I don’t buy it. I’ll be ecstatic if he’s right but I’ve witnessed far too much capitulation to buy that bridge to nowhere over a swamp of prime real estate. We’re gonna get fucked. It’s gonna happen. I’m so tired of one step forward, two steps back. You’ll need to read my last couple of blogs to understand where I’m coming from here.
We keep fighting conflagrations with lime jello. I think that Boehner actually said the same the other day but that’s not what he meant. Irony.
They don’t fight fair and I don’t understand why we don’t fight harder knowing full well we can still do it honestly. I must be stupid because I just don’t get it. Forgive my naivete for not understanding why we refrain from kicking jackasses like Cantor in the teeth with logic and common sense, in public and in front of the American people. Why don’t we make this insipid little intellectual midget cry in front of his friends?
Why, do we instead, take him and so many like him seriously in any public venue?
I’ll do it. Let me at him. I would destroy him. I’m calling out Eric Cantor. Paul Ryan too. Remember that high school student who challenged Bachmann to a debate on the constitution? I’m not holding my breath.
Am I wrong in hoping, daring to ask, that we do to them what they shamelessly do to us so absent of sense, decorum and discretion?
Beware gin without ice. It tastes hot. Burns my tongue. Weird. I drink whiskey straight though.
They are such dicks.
I hate it when I run out of ice.
My girlfriend forgot to fill the ice trays again.
I really hope that asshole Rick Perry runs. He’s the queen of the harpies. He doesn’t cook. He doesn’t clean. He prays. Another empty suit from Texas. I should be careful what I wish for.
Raising the debt ceiling is about paying what we already owe. It’s a manufactured crisis.
This should really be a walk in the park. I can’t understand why it’s so hard. It’s goddamn Fisher Price. These people are idiots. It’s clearly in someones best interest. It sure as hell isn’t in that of the middle class. They wage war with absolute lies. Why can’t we do the same with the truth? Social security has fuck all to do with the debt or the deficit and the only problem it will ever have can be solved easily by making the rich pay into it. As is, it’s solvent for at least another quarter century. Medicare and medicaid could benefit from various things like means testing (not all that efficacious), but both are still one hell of a lot more efficient than what the private sector offers.
Our woes are not the result of “entitlement” programs. Our woes have nothing to do with the debt ceiling or deficits. Dick Cheney said deficits don’t matter and Reagan raised taxes seven times and the debt ceiling eighteen times and these idiots sing his praises louder than a gay men’s choir being castrated. Our woes are because of our wars. Stupid, pointless wars that protect the interests of the wealthy and provide opportunity for them to vacuum even more filthy lucre. Our woes are because the rich do not pay their fair share in taxes. Tax breaks for the wealthy do not, and have never created one single fucking job. My head nearly explodes whenever I hear some Republican asshole pontificate on what a big mistake it is to raise taxes on the wealthy in this precarious economic climate. 400 hundred of the wealthiest Americans possess more of the money than half, 150 million us. Tax rates are lower on them than they have ever been. The only mistake is the money they will give that particular douchebag to get re-elected, so that piece of shit can continue to advocate for that fat fuck to write off that fucking caviar on his eggs in the morning by the pool while the damn jet warms up.
It’s not about the deficit. It’s not about the debt. It’s not about “entitlements” – I hate that word, because we, the middle class actually pay for them and deserve to benefit from them. It’s about the American people and our opportunity to work hard for at least a living wage. It’s about jobs.
IT’S ABOUT JOBS. IT’S ABOUT THE RICH USING ONE ELABORATE CHARADE AFTER ANOTHER TO FOMENT FEAR OF THINGS WE HAVE NO REASON TO FEAR SO THEY CAN STEAL THE REST OF WHAT WE HAVE WHILE LOOK OVER OUR SHOULDERS AND SWEAT WHETHER TO CUP OUR GENITALS OR COVER OUR ASSES. CLASS WARFARE BY ANY OTHER NAME.
Again, the road to common sense and equitable solutions used to be through the middle. Not anymore.
The difference between us and them is the more powerful amplifier for their message. Well you know, that and morals and ethics and all that. Forgive me for pointing out we’ve begun to suck at that too.
Don’t go telling me we need to sell our souls too. God help us says the unapologetic agnostic.
THESE are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman.
We need to grow a pair.
Drinks for my friends.
