It’s wrong, Bill. You may see Obama as facing a pragmatic dilema, trying to cut a deal to keep us from falling further. But the problem is fundamental. And it can’t be covered up or deleted from media websites and explained away as being the best that can be arranged at this late date before the Republicans take power. It must be addressed. Is it moral to steal from working Americans and are you going to let them get away with it?
Bernie was out there yesterday, all by himself on the Senate floor, speaking about the immorality of greed and speaking up for the working class. But he is not all alone in the country where people talk about this to their friends, families and neighbors every day.
Yes indeedy. Just yesterday, I was chatting with a couple of co-workers who I’ve never engaged with about politics before, and they get it. Boy oh boy do they get it. They know there’s a war going on. And our side is losing. And they are sick and tired to death of politicians and bosses who tell us that they “feel our pain” and then turn around and shove a shit sandwich in our faces, tell us to take it or leave it because, gee, it was the best meal they could come up with under the current circumstances.
As I noted over at The Widdershins in the comments to this post in which it is inferred that Clinton is playing Obama somehow to make him look bad and smooth the way for a Hillary run, I wrote:
I’m sorry, but I’m unhappy about Bill doing this press conference. As I recall, he was the enforcer for the POS health care bill as well.
Nope, not jumping on this “what a great guy the Big Dawg is” bandwagon.
And yeah, if HRC had brought Bill in to be her enforcer, the howls would have deafened us all.
I’m sick to death of 11-dimensional chess.
Hillary has said she’s not running. I believe her. Bill is shilling for this POS, just as he did for HCR.
What could he possibly be up to? Tying his endorsment [to this POS], and that’s how it is playing out, does nothing for him or HRC in the eyes of the pissed off left/progressives/liberals.
So he makes Obama look small. Big deal.
