Matt Drudge, of the Drudge report used this tough talk to tap the not very far beneath the surface racism of his right wing readers, with the scarey, angry black president headline, ", OBAMA GOES STREET: SEEKING 'ASS TO KICK' ."
But I'm more interested in whose asses he finds. I think he should own up to his own failures first. He should be looking, first, in the White House.
Get rid of the fat cats and the people who totally screwed up his image in handling the BP Gulf spill, so now, a majority of people think this disaster is being handled worse than Katrina. Start with asses-- I mean-- the asses of-- Rahm Emanuel and David Axelrod, then quickly clear out the corporate friendly asses of Robert Rubin alumni-- Geithner, Summers and Orszag. Or maybe, first off, as I've been saying, kick corpo-whore Ken Salazar's ass out of the government and watch how fast he, how all of them take lobbyist or industry jobs.
Hire Van Jones back and tell Glen Beck to go f*ck himself instead of America. Hire the strongest advocates for a healthy ecology-- Paul Hawkens, Bill McKibben, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. and show some serious action by empowering people who have a history of seriously protecting the environment.
Hopefully today's super tuesday of primaries will further demonstrate to the president that he's been taking the wrong sides-- for the status quo he campaigned against (like Blanche Lincoln, banksters, big Health Care, the Oil industry) rather than for the USA's people and environment.
The American people didn't vote for a corporate friendly contortionist president who bends over double backwards to please the people they defeated. It's time for him to throw out the Clinton DLC DINOs he started his presidency with and replace them with people who will watch the backs of the american people first. It just might save OBAMA's ass.
