Obama’s a disaster
Just thought I’d randomly list a few reasons why I think Obama’s a disaster for the majority of Americans. Will the progressive cause be better served if we no longer voted for ‘moderate’ democrats? Short term, probably not since it would lead to more republicans. But over the medium and long term, I think it’s the only way change is going to happen. Settling for Obamas (or worse) only neuters the progressive cause. Here’s my list.
Summers, Geitner, etc. – the Wall Street view.
Biden. Just a long winded politician with deep ties to the banking industry.
Deficit commission and the upcoming cuts to social security.
Health insurance reform not starting until 2014.
Health insurance reform a gift to the industry.
Expansion of Afghanistan war.
Failure to materially change US geo-political strategies – inevitably leading to rising tensions throughout the world.
Expanding domestic surveillance.
Lack of a program to eliminate unemployment.
Supreme court appointee Kagan – actually moving the court to the right.
He’s neutered what was a rising movement on the left.
