... I was disappointed when Obama went along with this this year. It won't ever make me jump ship, because that would be far too calculating against the have nots, but it was disappointing.
i can't help but wonder if hillary wouldn't have been a better president.
but you know, she might have failed for some of the same reasons obama is failing. the people that think their vote is the only relevant vote, the same people that reject compromise with other voters, these people are fucking the country up the ass. these voters are not ready to share the country with the rest, they are not ready to concede that americans come in different shapes and colors. they talk about taking back america - go fuck yourself teabaggers, the country doesn't just belong to you. god, what a bunch of supreme assholes.
having said that, obama has made some pretty goddamn disappointing choices. i would have loved him forever, if say for example, he didn't give a fuck about re-election and made choices based on what was right and not politically expedient. wouldn't it have been great if he prosecuted the wall street criminals. can anybody think of a downside to that prosecution?
