Today I read something by Ken Silverstein. He is with Harper's. He's now leaving/left. I highlighted him many times in the past. Reading his farewell piece, I had to wonder why it couldn't be Scott Horton leaving Harper's? 2009 was all about the disgust setting in as we saw Horton apologize and excuse Barack's crimes. What a cheap little whore Scott Horton became (this is the attorney, not the host of Antiwar.radio). He's like Ray McGovern and the other whores who are forever coming up with reasons why something Barack did really isn't Barack's fault. They're pathetic little bitches and I have no use for them.
This is from Ken Silverstein's final Harper's blog:
I had low expectations for Obama as I always viewed him as a fairly conventional insider. But by any measure, his presidency has been a huge disappointment. It’s true that Obama inherited a terrible economy, but his policies were timid — which is no surprise given that his economic team was composed almost entirely of the same bankers and Wall Street insiders who paved the way for and profited from our bubble economy. There are now 43.6 million Americans living in poverty and more than 15 million out of work; that’s a scandal, and when there’s a Democrat in the White House and the party has ample majorities in Congress, it’s not credible to blame everything on obstructionism by the Republicans.
Then there was the health care reform bill, that took more than a year to pass and whose primary beneficiaries were the lobbyists who got paid billions to water it down. The bill does almost nothing to control costs and left the insurance industry in charge of the system. And for that very reason, the industry will be able to contrive loopholes that minimize the impact of the few good measures left in the bill.
Joe Biden and Robert Gibbs have recently been attacking the “left” and saying that it doesn’t appreciate all the great things the administration has done. For my part, I have lived in Washington long enough to have realistic hopes; for example, given political realities, passing a single payer bill was not going to happen. But I also don’t think it’s my job, as a journalist or a citizen, to blindly repeat the mantra of the administration (and its supporters in the blogosphere), that we should “not let the perfect be the enemy of the good.” Fine, but let’s also not treat the administration’s health care plan as a grand achievement. The bill is widely unpopular, and not only because of the hyperbolic attacks on it by Republicans and Fox News. It’s unpopular because it’s a terrible piece of legislation.Now back to the little bitch Scott Horton (who writes like he pees sitting down). This week he finally noted, "I come away with a different impression: we’re looking at another power grab for the imperial president."
And there are two replies to that.
First, hey, Whore, some of us were making these comments back when you were jerking you tiny, limp dick and panting, "Do me, Big Barry, do me good!"
Second, limp Horton immediately starts using "Obama administration." He calls out Barack for a sentence and then quickly hides the blame on others. No, he did not write that way when Bush occupied the White House.
But that's what little bitches like Scott Horton do. I'm so sick of Scott Horton.
I'm sick of all the liars and how shameful that all this time later they whore.
I'm glad I never drank the Kool Aid and the real left never did. The real left always knew the fraud was Barack and that the whores like Horton were doing corporate America's job by selling Barry to you.
