Skip to comments.Not a happy Thanksgiving for libs at DU
Posted on 11/28/2009 6:47:50 PM PST by sickoflibs
You folks remember a year ago Thanksgiving 2008? Liberals were celebrating, conservatives were commiserating about the end of the world. Well a year later and it is not a very happy Thanksgiving for our Liberal/Progressive friends. Before I brighten your day here's a little comment I posted the day after election 2008 :
"Come January Obamas days of gaining anybody is over. The whole game changes, the demon GWB is out, Pelosi/ Obama is in. Come January their party is over as all cameras are on them. And we reunite after many years in a common cause (finally) with the resistance. Our curse GWB/McCain is lifted, from darkness comes the light. "
Now check out this DU post the other day and think of what you were posting Last Thanksgiving:
"The calendar has come around again to Thanksgiving, and families all over the country will be gathering around dinner tables to celebrate. Or try to, anyway. ...

What spoiled rotten children.
Obama is in a no win on the war. If it wasnt for his outlandish hawkish promises to center the fight in Afganistan (that his progressive base all assumed he was lying about) I would have sympathy for him.
I certainly hope my cynical sense is right and Health reform fails. Things are not rosy on that front for them and they know it.
I want to start posting more of the negativity I see on MSNBC.
Yes it has to be only democrats which we knows numbers are down right now. Last poll I say said 60%+ don’t want the reform and even more don’t want a public option!
Funny how these DU libs think everything’s the same, and some things are better. All up in arms about how the cost of sending a few more troops over will harm the economy, but not a word about the trillions wasted on bailouts, and the counterfieting machine running in overdrive. It took W 8 years to totally screw us over, and Obama has more than DOUBLED the screwing in less than a year. Under Carter, the Fed increased our money supply 13% over a 4 year period. This resulted in interest rates needing to be raised to near 20%. Starting with the end of Bush’s last term, the Fed has increased the money supply 120% (more than doubled the supply).WTF? How can we stop what’s coming? Can we avoid hyper-inflation?
Libs are very upset about the bailouts. They are calling for Geitner’s resignation.
But they are in a bind, Obama won and is president. not so much fun anymore when they could blame Bush-Rich-Bush-Rich.
Simply put, you have a delusional friend.
Remember, virtually everything in politics is opposed by at least 12-15% of the people because there are hard-core partisans that will blindly toe the party line (those numbers apply to both sides).
95% agreement of anything political is virtually impossible.
I don’t know any of these libs. All the ones I know still want to just blame Bush. When I agree with them that Bush screwed us, but O’s doing everything W did wrong, only way more, way faster, they still...blame Bush.
It is refreshing to see you dig up libs who’d heads are exploding. It’s gonna be more and more frequent.
That looks like a simple recipe for freedom to me. Easy to remember, too.
Blacks (unfortunately) voted for Obama at about that percentage.
That's what happens to me too. Back in the old days, I could still be friends with Clinton supporters, but now I find those who blame Bush but not Obama not only wrong, but downright untrustworthy.
The question is what will be deemed "failure" WRT healthcare. I think the odds are against them passing anything major for healthcare, bailouts, immigration, or crap and trade, at least until 2011. In fact, I believe crap and trade will not even pass in the senate next year.
I don't care if they actually pass anything, but I do care that they bring it up, so McCain can be forced into a "damned if you do, damned if you don't" situation right before the Arizona GOP primary.
This from what're easily the republic's thickest blockheads; yet, this one appears to have figured out the ruse in under a year.
That, has to be some sort of a record. LOL!!!!
“I don’t care if they actually pass anything, but I do care that they bring it up, so McCain can be forced into a “damned if you do, damned if you don’t” situation right before the Arizona GOP primary. “
This must be McQueeg’s greatest fear. Let’s hope it comes to pass.
“In fact, I believe crap and trade will not even pass in the senate next year. “
I agree, and not just because of the exposure of international “warmer” fraud. Moderate Dems can hide for several years with Obamacare, but not with crap n trade. The negative effects will be quick, and many will lose their jobs.
Energy rates will skyrocket too.
When a demogogue promises he is all things to all people, he usually gets his a$$ handed to him fairly quickly. Think Romney. But Obama has had remarkable luck. He wiped his life history clean, and he is a dictator. Yet so far he has owned the media, and the judges.. I call that remarkable luck, as nobody has yet to expose him on a large scale.
Thanks for the ping, sir.
As you already know, I’m always interested in obsrevations of the primitives on Skins’s island.
As mentioned elsewhere, it’s a fascinating show to watch, and I like to see if other see the primitives as I see them, and add illumination for me.
