side is Obama on?
Lincoln: "You can't escape history" by
James K. Galbraith at salon.com
I want to raise a hard question --
a question on which Americans are divided. It seems to me, though,
we will get nowhere unless we realize where we are, what has actually
happened, and what the future most likely holds.
Recovery begins with realism and there is nothing to be gained by
kidding ourselves. On the topics that I know
most about, the administration is beyond being a disappointment. It's
beyond inept, unprepared, weak, and ineffective.
Four and again two years ago, the
people demanded change. As a candidate, the President promised change.
In foreign policy and the core economic policies, he delivered continuity instead.
That was true on Afghanistan
and it was and is true in economic policy, especially in respect to the
banks. What we got was George W. Bush's
policies without Bush's toughness, without his in-your-face refusal to
compromise prematurely. Without what he
himself calls his understanding that you do not negotiate with yourself.
It's a measure of where we are, I think, that at a meeting of Americans
for Democratic Action,
you find me comparing President Obama unfavorably to President George
Oh, I don't like the directions things are going.
Once again, Obama is doing everything he can to endear himself to Bitch
and, once again, he's going to be surprised and astounded when they
kick him in the teeth.
Who's telling him to pee on the Left?
Who's giving him this great advice to turn hard towards the right?
Who's telling him to betray the people who knocked on
doors in the cold rain to get him elected?
Who's telling him to turn his back on the thousands of volunteers who
believed that his message was real?
