More like the shitty is the enemy of any good..I am so sick of Obama saying that that I blow chow.

Let me be clear: I agree.

we'd all agree that the smug, paternalistic condescension is a serious contender

We all would, I imagine, but what I still fail to fathom is how anyone with half a brain didn't pick up on that trait during the fucking campaign. It was clearly on display.

Why haven’t we all got a vote in the US election? Surely
everyone with a TV set has earned that right just for
enduring the merciless bombardment every four years.

"We all would, I imagine, but what I still fail to fathom is how anyone with half a brain didn't pick up on that trait during the fucking campaign. It was clearly on display."

Yes, it was. Hope is a dangerous, dangerous emotion, and covers over cubic miles of crap.

Great quote by Julius Nyerere.

When do I get to say I told you so to my entire family? Should I save it up for Xmas? Oh, thats right, we've decided we cant afford to celebrate it this year.

Actually, I already have (ask them) Their reply is "Well, i wasnt all about Obama, and I was no Obama girl, but, he was better than McCain or Bush, blah, blah, blah..."

better 'n Bush---the Dem mantra for life.

Well, you're in luck because Obama won't be the solution to this conflict anyway: http://antonyloewenstein.com/2009/09/24/saree-makdisi-obama-won%e2%80%99t-solve-the-middle-east-crisis/

How is anyone 'in luck" in that Obaam wont solve the conflict?

Maybe I misunderstand.

Well, better for Palestinans and advocacy groups to solve it on their own as opposed to Obama completely overlooking the Israel goldstone report,no?

Smug? Paternalistic? Condescending? But he's just trying to be helpful to the Israelis and the Palestinians, in the same way that he's offering this helpful advice to the G20 protesters:

"I was always a big believer in - when I was doing organizing before I went to law school - that focusing on concrete, local, immediate issues that have an impact on people's lives is what really makes a difference and that having protests about abstractions [such] as global capitalism or something, generally, is not really going to make much of a difference."

Can you imagine George W. Bush being as helpful as that? Of course not. I, for one, welcome our new concern-troll President.

Did anyone else see the video (at The Progressive) where the protestor is being "disappeared" by either military or mercenaries (we have to guess which now) Hell, WHY did we put that loophole in Posse Comitatus?? Damn! Im sure Obama is getting ready to revere is any day.

Hes probably on his way to Bagram....

Jenny, yes, you are probably right..with friends like us...Obama was right about one thing! We sure as HELL cant "solve all the world's problems anymore"!! LOL! We're too busy creating them~!
