In that period, we—the authors of this essay—offered critical support and urged independent organization for the Obama candidacy in 2008 through the independent ‘Progressives for Obama’ project. We were frequently chastised by some allies at the time for being too critical, too idealistic, too ‘left’, and not willing to give Obama a chance to succeed.
They kissed his ass. "Progressives for Obama" includes I-will-not-see-my-only-grandchild-because-I-the-mother Alice Walker. They offered nothing but licks to Barack anus. They tongued up there. Carl especially went to town, of course.
It's hilarious that Socialists endorse Barack and then they're the first to scream and stomp their feet when the right starts talking about how Barack has the support of Socialists or how Barack must be a Socialist. They get so angry and so mad.
Because they're ignorant. They can't see how two Socialists endorsing Barack actually harms him more than helps. If they really wanted to help Barack get re-elected, Carl and Bill would STFU. They refuse to because they love the sound of their own voices far more than they do love Barack.
The two dumb whores need to pack it in.
No one follows them.
Good God, they think they're Sonny & Cher or something.
Bill would have to be Cher because Carl is butt ugly and Cher's anything but ugly.
So that means Bill's going to have to flip his hair and do the finger nail thing while Carl just stands around looking useless. (It's as though Carl's studied his entire life for the part!)
Fortunately, there's already a strong push back to the lies Carl and Bill are serving up. This is the comment Paul Donahue left:
"Groundhog Day" indeed. I have been reading commentaries such as this, practically verbatim, in 2008 regarding Obama, in 2004, regarding Kerry, in 2000 regarding Gore, and in 1996 regarding Clinton...
The election of Obama resulted in a complete demobilization of the left and was an unmitigated disaster for leftist organizing. War crimes and other outrages that would have filled the streets in DC if Bush had done them, led to nothing at all, or pathetically small turnouts when Obama was doing them. The formerly effective UFPJ utterly folded after Obama's election.
It seems obvious to me that the US left would have been far advanced in it orgainzing, and the organizing would have captivated a far borader base, had McCain been president for the past four years.
I recognize US electoral politics as utterly corrupt, and we should be devoting only a tiny part of our efforts to them, but with regarding to participating in them at all, I must quote Nader's emphatic, not-so rhetorical question: "What is your breaking point?" Mine was in 1996, although, in a moment of weakness, I backslid and voted for Kerry in 2004. Never again.
For the past couple months, I worked my ass off dealing with an often hostile public collecting signatures to get Jill Stein/Honkala on the ballot in Pennsylvania. So of course I will be voting for Stein/Honkala.
Should Romney/Ryan win, I look forward to a great mass of the Obama faithful joining us in the streets, where they should have been for the past four years. Should Obama win, I look forward to a continued lurch to the right while the left lies prostrate before him.
And I'll return to Carl and his lies tomorrow. (Don't e-mail me, Carl. I know what a turd you are. You're complete and utter crap and I've read C.I.'s journals so I know you were a turd even back when you were younger. You've always lied, you've always whored. So don't e-mail me, Carl. You don't want to piss me off with all that I know about you.)
And above when I said "Socialists" I should have said "Democratic Socialists." I know who I meant. And most of my readers will know. But some may get confused. (Real Socialists, like my grandfather, wouldn't be caught dead endorsing a corporatist like Barack.)
Here's C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot:"
