Barack Obama ran the best organized presidential campaign in American history. He chose to maintain the organization they had built under the "Organizing for America" moniker to advocate for his administration.

His backing off on the public option in health care reform is just the latest in a series of retractions in the areas of rule of law, forbidding torture, getting out of Iraq, and so many other areas where he has broken his campaign promises.

It is appropriate that we turn our backs on him!
