Take a deep breath. The Huffington Post and CNN reported this morning that President Obama is ready to cave again to Republicans -- this time on the Bush tax cuts he campaigned against in 2008.
As Republicans boast that their #1 priority is to defeat Obama in 2012, we've seen nothing but capitulation and talk of "compromise" from the President since Election Day.
It's time for us to ask: President Obama, ARE YOU KIDDING? Fight the Republicans already!
I was on MSNBC's Ed Show tonight and announced that 60,000 Americans already signed this petition. It's now 70,000 and growing! Please sign now and add to the momentum.
Make no mistake, this petition is a rallying cry.
Our days of "trusting" that Democratic leaders have some brilliant plan are over. We saw the results last Tuesday when many Obama voters were not inspired enough to return to the polls.
Progressives need to push Democratic leaders to fight for popular progressive change -- and win.
Working together, we'll push and push Democratic leaders until they finally fight for "change we can believe in."
Thanks for being a bold progressive.
