I never thought it would come to this, but I have to say, there are a lot of Democrats I won't be voting for again, and that includes you, Mr. President.
I have, for well over a year now, proudly displayed your picture in my margin over the words, "Another Union Marine for Obama". You have made me ashamed of that. You have made me doubt myself. How could I have been so blind, how could I have been so fooled? The only answer I can come up with is the one I convinced myself of so long ago, that anybody would have been better than four more years of Republican chicanery. I was wrong.
At least with the Republicans I know what to expect. I know they are against me and those like me. I know that they are self-serving, soul-less creatures who worship at the alter of the almighty dollar. I don't expect anything less from them and I did garner a certain joy in fighting them for eight long years at every turn. I tuned in every night to Keith Olbermann and reveled in his tirades against the Bush Crime Cartel and posted them all right here. I was convinced that once you were elected you would make things right. I looked forward to the end of our military involvement in Iraq. I relished the idea that Gitmo would be closed. I celebrated in the knowledge that justice was finally coming to America and that every American citizen would have access to quality healthcare, regardless of socio-economic status. You, Mr. President, would boldly lead us into the new century and a new America that truly offered the American Dream to everyone. I was so wrong.
Mr. President, in my eyes you have betrayed us. You have sat idly by and watched our dreams get swept away by a handful of Insurance Company cronies led by the ultimate turncoat, Joe Lieberman. You have failed to close Gitmo. You have failed to extricate us from Iraq. And now you have failed us again on an issue of such colossal importance that I can no longer turn away and forgive you your sins.
"Yes We Can" rings empty and unfulfilled.
I can't even credit you with "No we can't", because you just didn't even really try.
You have shown us all plainly that it is, after all, "No We Won't".
Now, excuse me while I replace your picture in my margin with the one best suited to you. The one above, Nobama!

While perusing my feed this morning I came across this from Fixer at Alternate Brain. Sums up the way I feel exactly, so head on over to Alternate Brain and give it a look.
"Fixing shit is what I do, and I do it well. Everything from lawnmowers to jet engines, I can figure out what's wrong with it and make it work correctly, or let you know it's beyond hope. All except our political system. I wouldn't have a clue of where to start. This health care "reform" process shows me it's pretty well beyond hope."
Read the rest here.
While you're there, look around. A lot of good stuff going on over there!

Outrageous... Bimbette, Liz Cheney, who was noticeably quiet as her Father's administration did everything it could to drive Gay men and women back into the closet, and straight women back to the "hanger", has no problem defending torture and Gitmo as "American Ideals". Is this chick confused, or what?President Obama's speech accepting the Nobel Peace Prize this past week has won unlikely plaudits from conservatives, who say he injected a bit of militaristic realism into a committee founded on the lofty notion of world peace. But not everyone is applauding. Liz Chen...

Outrageous... The only good thing about Gore "losing" the Presidential election in 2000 is the fact that, had he won, "Turncoat" Joe Lieberman would have been the vice President of the United States. This would have positioned him to run for President in 2008, instead of Barack Obama. As big a disappointment as Obama has been, I can't imagine what things would be like under a DINO administration led by a closet Likudnik like Lieberman. It's time to divorce him from the Democratic Party completely. Strip him of his Chairmanship! Thanks Connecticut! We owe all this to you!
Full story here.
It's time for the Democrats to grow a set and let Turncoat Joe know that there is a price to be paid for his outrageous betrayal - strip him of his coveted Chairmanship!
Hit the road, Joe! We don't want you.
