It's not a matter of giving Obama a chance. It's a matter of giving LIBERALS a chance.

Hmmm, doesn't look good, does it?  Obama's first pick (chief of staff) is Rahm Israel Emanuel, arguably the most important position on his "team" considering Emanuel's power to decide all my himself who Obama gets to talk to or not -- among other powers too numerous to mention.  Emanuel's conservative background is to the right of most Republicans.

 

Emanuel recently came out with the Palinesque pronouncement that the Democratic Party doesn't "have" a base."

Oh no, tell me it ain't so.  This is pure, 100%, undiluted Clinton anti-liberalism.  This is the DLC, these are the "centrists", and this is status quoism to the max (and please note that status quoism is basically a synonym of fascism).

 

Thus, we must NEVER forget that 2008 "centrists" were about three standard deviations to the right of the mean eight years ago.  So translation:  year 2008 "centrist" =  year 2000 extreme right wing.

And how did this slight of hand happen?  Well, it came from the COMBINED efforts of DLC/Clinton types and eight years of propaganda from George W. Bush.  In other words, when it comes to defining a political stance as centrist, that means (a.) in reality, that stance is very right wing, and (2.) this slight of hand was created by Bush/Clinton (two sides of the same coin) when it comes to declaring total war on liberals.

 

Indeed, IF we had a two party system it would be between liberals and progressives VS DLC centrists, Republicans, and elites.  In short the pseudo "centrists" are MUCH more lined up with fascist (remember, ZERO CHANGE, status quo people) Republicans.  However this is merely a symptom, because the real reason fascist centrists are virulently anti progressive is became they know the ONLY political force in this country that could drag down the elites (even if just a little) are passionate progressives. 

 

OK, does this mean Obama's victory was a non event?  Beats me.  Time will tell, but so far Obama certainly seems to be sucking up to the DLC and that is the kiss of death because they are the closet fascists of the Democratic Party.  Need an example?  Nancy Pelosi and nearly the entire 2006 dem congress -- that congress of traitors.

So, the groom stalks out even before the honeymoon starts.  Forget the progressives and liberals who (a.) got Obama into the primaries in the first place, and (b.) who were the core infrastructure of his election in 2008.
