The African American states are a lost cause and mostly behind. It is no longer necessary to walk on eggshells when it comes to criticizing Obama. Bernie should show his anti-establishment credentials by giving balanced critiques of Obama-- one good thing, one bad thing.

For example:

  • It was good to bring healthcare to 15 million more people but it was not a good idea to cut a deal with big Pharma to allow them to charge retail and promise to cut off ordering drugs from Canada at lower cost.
  • Appointing two democratic women to the Supreme Court was good, appointing bankers and Monsanto execs to head agencies, not so good.
  • Saving the auto industry and getting paid back, good. Pushing for a predatory set of trade deals-- TPP and TPA-- that almost entirely benefit transnational corporations, not the 99%, pretty bad.

  • Add more to the list in the comments. My point is, Obama deserves criticism. The populist tidal wave is looking for challenges to the establishment. Give Obama his due, because, after all he is getting record positive polls at 51% positive. Let Hillary back him 100%. People can take a balance of support and criticism.
