Just a few quick thoughts. I know of no-progressive, NO former Obama enthusiast
who views the White House leadership, with it's Geitners, It's Summers, its Rahm Emanuels, it's Eric Holders or the new chief of staff - GE's Job-Out Sourcer extrodinaire. Or anyone of the other WALL STREET OLIGARCHs who've been placed in key spots in the Administration as the sole problem facing this country.
To pretend even for a moment, that ANYONE on the left blames OBAMA more than either the standard corporatists of the Grand Ol Party, or the Religio-Fascists of the Republican Party or the latest phenom the KOCH-funded ASTRO-turfers of the KNOW-NOTHING Branch of the Idiocracy (t-party) is just foolishness and the same sort of BLAME the progressive first-ers that we expect from anyone carrying water for the SELL-OUT Obama Administration.
What I have heard was while there is nothing wrong with consensus building, and there is nothing wrong with bridge building its just that this administration has dragged it's agenda backwards to it's own two yard line and then... then began accommodating from there!
NO Bully-pulpit from the guy who said, let's close Guantanamo, no Bully-pulpit from the guy who pledged an end to BUSH ERA spying and grilling whistle-blowers, no agenda for even middle of the road democratic principles. The use of the word ENTITLEMENTS by corporatists and war-industry oligarchs in limousines would be laughable except, "OUR" team leader seems not only to agree but to see galloping-concessions as leadership.
Don't pretend that an alert agenda oriented voter is betraying "our" side. Yes he promised more war in Afghanistan, and anyone expecting less was fooling themselves. Don't kid yourself, and don't bully the progressives with the NONSENSE, that by reminding President Obama about the agenda he said he was bringing and it's ABSOLUTE ABSENCE we betray him.
It's his actions, his appointments, his ACTUAL AGENDA... as the betrayal. YES the Tea Party and the Republicans are the enemy of working people everywhere. That's not news. And if your surprised, that's your problem. But let me say this once more.
THE ABSENCE of the AGENDA that he and his team, told us was the PLAN - yes, we notice and WE WILL CONTINUE TO SAY SO.
To pretend that President Obama's betrayal of women, the poor, the elderly, the environment has made CONSERVATIVE OLIGARCHS UPSET. Is simply wrong. Equating our criticism with betrayal of democrats, is just blind defeatism itself.
SEE YOU ON THE PROTEST LINE CARL, unlike the guy who said, he'd march with UNIONS when they were threatened. You figure he didn't heard about Wisconsin?
solidarity & peace

Russell and team, thanks for picking apart some of the loose threads of this EPIC myth making exercise. Surely an exemplary exercise is PSYOPS. Containing nothing whatsoever of truth, and wrapping the tale up neatly with the "typical Muslim at Sea Burial and the timely and convenience coincidence of the elimination of so many who might have been in a position to tell-tales out of school, is just so, how's the saying go, just one more interesting "coincidence".

We find ourselves in the paradox, that while there "ARE" two franchised "parties -
neither serve any interests beyond their lobbyist paymasters. We must find a path to
enable our voices and our agenda. It is my profoundest hope. That those of us, who understand something of the energy paradigm of this universe.
Can we with our sustained and focused energy enable these unmet needs and find a place, a voice and a path, toward that expression? PDA/MoveON/Greens / Socialists all with a glorious variety of stripes were created in a time for a need, these were fractured.
Todays needs, todays dangers mus summon a more serious response. I say this, with full understanding that some brothers and sisters are honorably committed to trying to reorient the glacial path of the DEMOCRATIC PARTY. I honor them and respect their efforts One and All - I can only speak from my own true heart - Which knows this is not and cannot be the compass of where I must work. I see these terrible crimes against the Constitution and the terrible attacks on simple human rights as so extensive, so ingrained. The enabler of much of this who pretends that COMPROMISE is the HOW and the WHY of torture, of spying, of mercenaries, beyond poisoned rivers and seas, of MEGADEATH, of the destruction of cities, of schools, of millions of lives sacrificed so WAL STREET can live in an opulence that would have made an EMPEROR BLUSH. -
I must work with all my energies to help us, break these walls, to end this murderous path. with it's casual massacre of millions.
Using ideas and energy and the truth of millions as the garden where I must join those who seek a renewal of the Social Contract with tomorrow's children. Our steps stain the sand so briefly.
