DU members are mocking Obama and threads are getting locked and pulled
Vanity | 6/16/2010 | Self

Posted on 06/15/2010 9:55:32 PM PDT by AngieGal

I wanted to see what the DU folks had to say about Obama's speech tonight. Apparently, threads are being locked and pulled. I did find one interesting thread that shows that even the DU members' confidence in Obama is wavering. I tried to edit for language somewhat.

Here are some exerpts:

"When it comes to Obama speeches anymore, I'm like Gary Larson's dog...Blah, blah, blah Ginger blah, blah, blah Ginger blah, blah, blah..."

"I was underwhelmed watching it on Olberman just now and agree with most of what Olberman and the commentators are saying, unfortunately."

"Un f...ing believable! I am so disgusted!...Sorry, but I'm not buying that crap!!!

"All this talk about the future is nice, but I beg, "where is the fierce urgency of now"? What about the current operational c....f... of cleanup efforts? What about the current unfolding disaster? Hello???"

The problem I have trying to read the DU threads is their lousy thread formatting. I usually give up after a couple of clicks.

I wonder how many of them will vote for him again. 50 maybe 75 percent?

I checked out DU the other day and there were a lot of ‘he lied to us’ and ‘we were supposed to get out of Iraq and we’re still there, unemployment is over 9’ and wah wah wah, yep, they’ve been had and they know it.

Yeah, I guess we should have predicted the mention of the “Blessing of the Fleet” ceremony would not go over big with the hard left.

On DU? The only ones who won't vote for Hussein are those who vote for the Green Party candidate or write in "Kucinich" or some other commie.

If they are rightfully disgusted, they just won’t vote. We call it the McCain effect.

The only acceptable way they can make amends for their disillusionment over Obama and save face is suicide.

Looks like that bunch is upset because Obama asked everyone to pray for the oil to stop.

Calling it his Come to Jesus SPeech and saying they all hope GOds got a really big sponge.

This is the essence of it. Obama is just not there.

Don't they always agree with what Olbermann is saying?

Wow—thanks for the link! They really are down. One of them posted a Larson cartoon, and another said it was some levity to lighten up a bad day, week, year, century. The only really positive comments were sarcastic—a couple of them well done sarcasm, I must say. Again I say wow; there is only one word to describe Obama’s speech tonight: Fail!

There are many in the country that pray Obama stops the march to ruin and radical socialism.

Did he tell everyone to pray to god or God?

I watched Olberman’s response on RCP. I was amazed at his reaction. He was totally underwhelmed and thought that it was a good speech to someone who hadn’t been on the planet for 57 days. He and Chris Matthews both thought that there was no executive command of the situation. It’s worth watching. Go to Real Clear Politics.

It’s not just DU members that is mocking Obama. There is a celebrity gossip board that is primarily for gays, and in the past has been FANATICALLY pro-Obama. For what they are posting now, even six months ago the posters would be permanently banned:

Wow, those comments are really telling.

The guy you quote, Poboy, finishes off his rant with a quote from Bobby Jindal and a link to an article where Jindal shows he is taking command and not waiting for President Oil Spill.

In order to have “executive command,” first you require an executive; then he must have command.

I don’t know what exactly the two gauges they placed on the top hat are measuring, but the readings have dropped to the point one of them is now indicating a negative pressure.

They were put there before the speech, to measure Obama’s approval ratings.

Two bumper stickers I saw on separate vehicles here in liberal Austin yesterday:

“Don’t blame me. I voted for the American guy.”

“Germans in 1932 thought they were voting for change too.”

_______

In case anyone did not see or note this last night .........

Of all the bizarre things, I saw Keith Olbermann, Chris Matthews, and Howard Fineman heavily criticize Obama’s speech on one of the MSNBC after-speech shows last night. It was unreal. All of these three losers have been water carriers for Obama all along. It was truly beautiful to see what I saw.

(I don't hold any hopes of this treatment continuing, but it was good to see.)

I have noticed the same thing as well, the moderators are gutting almost all comments that disagree with the tilt and lean of the Obama Agenda,

Basically its an internet version of a firing squad if you disagree.

Won’t be too much further down the road there will be the real deal.

I feel quite sad that so many Americans chose a failed political view and direction and were duped into following such a failed agenda.

Which illustrates yet another big difference between DUmmieland and the Free Republic. When George W. Bush supported amnesty and submitted Harriet Miers' name to the Supreme Court, there were LOTS of threads here harshly critical of him. None were locked.

Its the idiotic tantrum threads that get pulled, stuff the left get orgasmic about on a daily basis.
