    Even the Democrats are starting to figure out that they were conned.

    But this guy's problem, as well as many other progressives problem, with Obama is that he hasn't gone far enough left...
    "[Obama] has failed to advance the progressive cause,”

    They've been angry with him for some time now. This was their golden hour and he has not brought forth the revolution fast enough.

    You can see it here with some of the leftist posters like Brucev who want him gone.

    On a positive note: At least we finally found someone from Obama's past.

    What is it about these leftist "academics" wanting to avoid critical challenges at all costs (I give you...Paul Krugman!)? Gee -- it's almost as if they realize that if their left wing bombast actually faced direct rebuttals, they would come tumbling down like a house of cards.

    He got tenure at 29. Imagine a great pay/benefits/easy job and never having to worried about getting fired. No wonder he is out of touch.

    There isn't a lot of excitement about this election for either candidate but I think the Rs will get out and vote while the Ds stay home.

    I still think there is a chance that if BO looses he will run again in 16. Then there is the wife and the kids in the future to think about.

    "He has failed to advance the progressive cause in the United States."

    In case anyone doesn't know, progressive is academic code for Marxist.


    It's how socialism survives in Europe - they have a near monopoly on the media over there that's worse than what the American left used to have here. Combine that with the fact that in most countries over there politicians aren't former businessmen...they pretty much have to have joined the party's youth league as a teenager and stayed an active member of the party through college. Career politicians in a literal sense.

    Yup...!

    It's also interesting to see how an entire industry of Keynesian "academics" sprouted up to support the politicians there, and in this country...

    Although I don't agree with his reasons, his conclusion is flawless.

    That reflects my sisters opinions.

    Obama is conservative and the media is a Right-Wing tool. . . :shocked: :shocked: :shocked:
