This is not getting the job done. The incrementalist bullshit, the bi-partisan compromise with people with bad ideas who hope that America fails just long enough for their own benefit, the whole idea that we can push a little here and a little there in a nine sided chess game to fix the clusterfuck just right.
I am glad Obama is President but the audacity of hope part is over. Right now, I am hoping for a little more audacity.
Though I don’t entirely agree with everything Bill Maher says, I agree with his point. We need drastic reform for health care, our economy, issues regarding the rule of law and the role of the Executive branch that was abused during the previous criminal administration.
A little at a time is not enough.
So, if not now, when?
If we are not going to stand up now to the banks, the insurance companies, the MIC, the status quo, then when?
By criticize Obama when he is wrong we give him a reason to act differently. If we only praise him he has no reason to court our interests.
I think a side effect of the GOP being as far out as they are is that it gives Obama and the Democrats leeway to be just as bad but seem better by comparison. It is like their corruption is less offensive when compared to the lunatic rhetoric of secessionists, fear mongers, torture advocates and “reverse racism” concern trolls.
I think the only way to be heard anymore is to raise hell, or rather, yell louder.
The party is doing everything they possibly can to ensure that you’ll get re-elected. The Republican party.
Speaking of which, speaking of the Republican party, if you can’t shove some real reforms down their throats now, then when?
Barack Obama needs to start putting it on the line in the fights against the banks, the energy companies and the health care industry.
And I couldn’t agree more.
You want change now, or later?
I, for one, will not trade a bird in the hand for two in the bush. Especially not after fighting like hell to get it in the first place.
Or was “Change We Can Believe In!” supposed to be a second term issue?
