“Of those who contributed to Obama's 2008 campaign, 74% are opposed to his tax cut deal.
 51% say they are less likely to contribute to Obama's reelection campaign in 2012. In addition,
 57% say it makes them less likely to support congressional Democrats who support this deal in 2012.”

Subject:  Give Obama a break

What did you expect him to do? 
Leave the negotiations to the Congressional Democrats? 
Look how well they handled health care.
I hate this deal too and I'm encouraging all my elected officials to vote against it
but the Dems still hold the majority in Congress.  Let's see some leadership there,
not a bunch of posturing that doesn't get the job done. 

Real leadership. Real 'mess with me and I'll kick your teeth right down your throat' fighting. 
Bernie Sanders has the guts to pull this off.  If he can convince 41 other senators to follow him it's filibuster time.
If he can't, Barack was right to cut a deal.  Congressional democrats
would show themselves to be a bunch of useless pussies once again.
  Becky in Nazareth, PA

What did I expect Obama to do?
I expected him to come to work and fight for what he believes in.
Even today, Dec 9, does he have any idea how much trouble he's in?
Does he have any idea how weak he looks to the rest of the world?

...but he just stands there and smiles like he's winning.

At the beginning of the second half, I'd say the score is 24-0.

"It's tempting not to negotiate with hostage takers unless the hostage gets harmed."
    -- Obama, trying to justify the unjustifyable,      Link

"In 1995 Gingrich and the Republicans were tough and belligerent --riding high off a recent
  midterm election sweep. They wanted massive cuts and a change to Republican values:
  Gut government at all costs. If you don’t we shut down the government and the people who
  elected us will rally to our side. Clinton did not give in. The American people rallied to the
  President’s side because he was right.  His approval rating rose dramatically. It was Clinton's
  "Profiles in Courage" moment. Now Obama has had his moment and he failed. He caved.”

Subject: Conspiracy theory

Get out your tin foil hat...
After Obama's latest cave-in and hearing about the GOP wringing their hands over a possible
Sarah Palin Presidential bid, something occurred to me.  Maybe they WANT Sarah (secretly)
to be their nominee.  Here's my logic (such that it is):
1. Sarah Palin wins nomination and gets creamed in the 2012 election. 
    She is branded a loser and (possibly) goes away. - GOP Wins.
2. Obama wins and continues to cave on everything, thereby giving
    the Repugs everything they ever wanted. - GOP wins.
3. The economy, debt, and job rate continue to spiral out of control,
    everyone blames Obama. - GOP wins.
4. In 2016 there's not a Democrat in the country who is electable.  Rebublicans ride
    into office and blame everything bad on Obama for the next 20 years. - GOP wins.
It seems crazy that the Republicans (win at any cost!) would throw a fight for any reason,
but help me out here. Are any of those 4 outcomes ridiculous?

"I will give a tax break to 95% of Americans who work every day. And I'll help pay for this by asking

"Fuck" doesn't even come close. 
Obama has drilled us up the ass with a rig borrowed from his pals at BP.

He seduced us with sweet talk about Hope and Change You Can Believe In;
once we drank down the roofies he held us against our will while his GOP buddies violated us again and again.

I wonder who he will have working in the trenches for him in 2012? 
Because it WON'T be me.

“Now, under this agreement, unemployment insurance will also be extended for another 13 months..."

    -- Obama, very proud of his negotiating skills,    Link

 But Sir, they got TWO YEARS of tax breaks for the already super-rich.
 Why couldn't you get TWO YEARS of help for the almost homeless in return?

 Your idea of "negotiating" is getting a dime back
 for every quarter you give them and that's crazy.

Send e-mail to Bart

Subject: let all tax cuts expire

Instead of long-term unemployment insurance, why not have
a WPA program and put them to work until the economy improves?

That's a great idea.
I'm sure most people would rather make $3,000 a month working
than getting $800 worth of unemploment insurance.

We have a lot of roads and bridges that need repair.

We know better - the vulgar Pigboy
"vacations" with Viagra pills and little
brown boys in the Dominican Republic

I'm with Andrew Sullivan

Bart... You always blame everything on the Pres when he's NEVER had a majority
in either Senate or House, as in Blue Dogs and other money sucking dems.

I'm with the Andrew Sullivan assessment below.

I say Obama is the adult in the room, and an excellent poker player don't forget.
Look how far we've come since the BFEE.

Lynn, I have criticized Obama for five things, (that I recall).
1. He is meek and timid with his power. He seems to not know he's president.
2. He turned health care over to Reid & Pelosi (D-3,000 pages) - big mistake.
3. He ignored the Teabaggers until after they became a spoiler in politics.
4. He seems to keep making the same mistakes over and over

    and he always seems surprised when he gets out-flanked.
5. He signals his surrender long before sitting down at the table to negotiate.

This list isn't something that I fabricated out of thin air.
If you turn on a TV or open a newspaper or a web page you will see
many angry Democrats who aren't taking their marching orders from me.

I'm not trying to convince you than Obama is a mouse. I'm trying to convince
you that the world and especially the Republicans see Obama as a mouse and
they treat him like one and he doesn't seem to understand that.

No matter my opinion or your opinion.  Obama is in serious political trouble
and - once again - he seems not to understand that.  He's been in serious trouble
since last summer but he didn't find out until 5 weeks ago.

"Obama caving in" is the talk of the internet and the biggest story in politics.

It would appear that the only thing that could win him a second term
is if he runs against the bat-shit crazy teabagger from Alaska.

Once again - it's not me who is going to fire Obama.
If I say, "The forest fire is approaching," that doesn't mean I'm pro-forest fire.

Obama: President; McConnell: Sucker

 Andrew Sullivan likes what Obama is doing

Subject:  10 years after Bush v Gore

It's been 10 years since the Supreme Court usurped the power of the People and instead
appointed George W. Bush as president. At that time America had a surplus. We are
on track to completely pay off the national debt in 10 years, which would be today.

Instead we got 9/11, two wars, a collapsing economy, and about 14 trillion dollars in national debt.
America invades other countries without provocation. Wall Street steals trillions and we reward them
with trillions more. We run torture prisons in Iraq and the real culprits don't go to jail. We steal from
the poor to give to the rich. We have become a broken nation.

On that day 10 years ago the integrity of our nation was damaged in a way that America might
never recover. History might record this single act as the beginning of the end of the America
we knew and the beginning of a dark chapter in our nations history. And although there is no
mechanism in law to protect the People from the Supreme Court we must always remember
that what they did 10 years ago was fundamentally an act of treason to the Constitution
and we as a nation are suffering the consequences of allowing this national disgrace.

Bart --

What makes you (and Marc Perkel) think that unemployed people did not vote?
 Jack in Salem, Oregon

Jack, the poor NEVER vote.
If they did there wouldn't be a rich man's political party.

We have what, 200M people making $50,000 a year or less?
We have maybe 10M millionaires.

Why do the 10M keep winning elections over the 200M?
Because the poor don't vote.

Obama's genius

The smartest thing I've seen him do is bring Hillary onto the team.

Think what she'd be doing to him if she was free to speak.

Subject:  I voted for Obama

I voted for change and got it.
I voted for a centrist democrat for President
  and ended up with a rightist republican.

I voted for a man who over-promised and under-delivered.
I voted for hope and have despair.

Keep swinging the hammer Bart! & I'll vote
for men of principle when I can find them.

“Mike Palecek reminds me of Socrates the gadfly who asked unwelcome questions,
Diogenes with his lantern looking in vain for an honest man,
Chekhov the man with the hammer challenging the complacent family to share their meal,
Kerouac the ever on the move, somewhat hysterical searcher, and he reminds me of many
Americans who as children were so blasted with propaganda that they’re devoting the rest
of their lives to challenging the lies and all who tell them. In this land where babies are
brought by storks and buildings collapse due to unpatriotic bricks, we need the gadfly
because no leader, preacher, guru, or saint will wake us up, though the Doomsday clock
is ticking close to twelve.”
