Right Wing Media's contribution to the firm entrenchment of ignorance, and this point stupidity is not too strong a word, among Americans has paid of handsomely. It has also turned Obama, and presumable any future Democratic President, into a kind of token, republican fetch and carry.
(4 comments) SHARE Thursday, November 12, 2009 Obama's Short And Unremarkable Presidency
Obama, if he doesn't start satisfying his base, will not be re-elected. He is steadily squandering whatever goodwill he had earned by his promises on the campaign trail. Many of his supporters feel justifiably betrayed, as he devotes himself to repaying his corporate campaign contributors.

(3 comments) SHARE Friday, June 12, 2009 Melted Wings - Icarus And The Democrats
Obama has been permitted his brief moment at the pinnacle of power which, unbelievably, he has chosen to squander. He has, after an amazingly short time, digressed to comic relief. Why would a man devote his entire adult life to politics, then rise to the highest level of his profession, only to cower before the advance of a weakened and outnumbered enemy?

It's popularly believed there is no difference between the republicans and democrats. This is not true. The republicans, right, wrong or indifferent at least believe in themselves, and have the will and determination to fight for their beliefs, while the democrats are lumps, and not aware of what or who they're supposed to represent. No one respects people who won't stand up for themselves
