Obama
#1
Why am I so disappointed in Obama?

(I voted for him, twice, btw.)

He had enormous momentum.
His regime controlled both houses.
He could have done great things.

He chose not to.

Why?

Two theories here:

He received threats he couldn't ignore.
The U.S. has a history of killing lefties.
In this nation and lots of other ones.
It's what we do.


Or, he was a shill for the right wing agenda.

And indeed, he has become fabulously wealthy via his relentless capitulation.

Bernie Sanders is going that same route.

Turn left, and you die. Or, your kids die.

Short list of the dead ones:

Malcolm X; JFK; RFK; MLK, and several lesser known ones.

Obama took the safe route, and became very wealthy; selling out his hopeful base.

It has to be done, evidently.
Or you die.

I'm only once removed from Bernie.
I believe he has been severely compromised through threats.

What would you do?

In the case of Obama, I think he was  a right-wing pawn from the start.
Following the play-book of republicans like Bill Clinton.

A man with no conscious. 

A half-black version of Bush, with a more vicious agenda, as it turns out.

I hate that this prick is still worshiped...and that what he actually did in office is largely ignored.
Like i said, I voted for him twice.

I drank that Kool-Aid.

And he immediately became a war-mongering criminal; amassing a personal fortune in the process...with no hint of actual decency.

I hope we don't get fooled again...

Even though, via electoral politics, there is no chance of that.

Our last ten presidential elections have been complete shams.
On both sides.

The so called conservatives drove up the debt, dramatically, to enrich themselves and their friends.
The democrats also drove up the debt and enriched themselves and their friends.

The notion that these two camps oppose each other is borderline myopic.

We have a one party system.
A dictatorship, hiding beneath a banner of freedom.

It's  absolute bullshit.

But we aren't quite ready to admit this to ourselves.

We live in a coroprotacricy.Which I can't spell.

It's fascism.

The most right-wing presidents in recent memory have been Clinton and Obama.
And unpleasant thing to say.

But the facts back me up.

Where do we go from here?

My guess is because his complete lack of action on so many fronts left you with the orange cunt.

Nah. Threats would have played into his hands.

Yeah, the ACA was a dead giveaway.

I actually feel the slightest bit sorry for him, because he got dumped on by the economy, which wasn't his fault.

Corporatocracy is how I'd spell it.

Thanks, man.

I'm not a good speller.)

What tends to irk me the most, are politicians that point out their 'service', while amassing a personal fortune.
It is standard procedure...and slips past our scrutiny.

Oddly enough, Jesse Ventura, running as an dependent for the govern ship of Minnesota, is the only one in history that spent less on his election than what he was paid as Governor. Unique.

Almost all other 'servants' of our political system, manage to amass a fortune while in office.

Should this not raise eyebrows?

Being in office is the fast route to becoming a multi-millionaire.
And we give it a wink and a nod.

My hunch is that you are correct.

I merely represent the last guard of those depressed by the facts.

Trump has taken sleeze into a new dimension.
He rubs our face in it.

His corruption is extreme.
And he's old.

He knows he's going down.

The last great thing he can do is blow up the world.

I sense that he'd be fine with that.

His latest all-caps threat to Iran shows this, bigly.

He's unhinged, and some people love that.

He's more popular with his base than ever. What does that tell you about his base, and how bloody disgusting is that?

Haven't I been saying all that all along? For some reason any hint that Obama wasn't the new black Jesus was taken as being in favour of Trumpery. Everybody wants to shoot the messenger.

I was disappointed in Obama too! I envied America for finding someone worthy of being POTUS ... but not for long.

My big wake call was way back when I was urging people to vote for / bloody Gough Whitlam!

I thought he was the working man's messiah too. He wasn't.
He was actually a bit like the Lenin designed version of Trump, a huge tall man, a total egotist and shameless about it .. but we believed in his 'dream'.

He was so eager to change the world that he tripped over himself and got it all ballsed up and was proven to be a hopeless romantic ideologue with not a single clue how to build the foundations for this vision of better government. He led the country straight into bloody chaos and broke my heart!

I still tend to see the left to this day as lumbering oafs with huge good hearts and brains working only in first gear.

No real vision at all, just a fantastic dream of what could be if only everybody else did as they said. It just doesn't work that way, but there was a time when I too still believed that it might.

I can understand that part, but what does confuse me is why people like Robert Mercer keep backing the clown.

Mercer's not stupid, and must realise that if it all turns to custard, all the money and safe havens in the world won't save him or his beloved grandchildren. And he's by no means alone in being a super-smart cunt who's tied his harness to Trump.
