Obama to Netroots Nation: ‘Let’s Finish What We’ve Started’

It wasn’t lost on the 2,100 liberal activists gathered in Las Vegas at Netroots Nation for the annual four-day confab that the only Obama administration official who made the trip this time was Treasury Secretary Ray LaHood—a Republican.

But in a surprise video message this morning, President Barack Obama sought to rally his progressive base.

“We’re moving America forward and when we’ve come this far we can’t afford to slide backward,” Obama said, “Let’s finish what we’ve started.”

From what I’ve read, the Nutroots are not all that happy with 0bama. (Not socialist enough for them.)

President Obama, you are completely wrong or somehow completely misinformed. If you realize what you are doing, and know it is wrong, then you're a psychopath. The nation does NOT want the change (totalitarianism) you are bringing.

With the level of rage in this country rising to levels never seen before, you are precipating the destruction of the nation and God will hold you responsible. You must stop for whatever conscience sake you have left.

Obama won’t be satisfied til he finishes us all off. He knows he doesn’t stand a snowballs chance in hell of being re-elected so he wants to destroy this country as much as possible so even if a Republican is elected the damage will already have been done

Where’s the MSM outrage that the President would dignify such an outrageous collection of unpatriotic, lazy, and racist nerds?

Oh I forgot, that’s their view of the Tea Party.

Nothing would ever make the Nutroots happy. Even full fledged communisim because then they would actually figure out what a sham their lives have been and get depressed all over again!

Featured on the Liberty Fund Library (libertyfund.org) web site are these 1887 words of William Graham Sumner in his "State Interference":

"Consequently, when the old-fashioned theories of State interference are applied to the new democratic State, they turn out to be simply a device for setting separate interests in a struggle against each other inside the society. It is plain on the face of all the great questions which are offered to us as political questions to-day, that they are simply struggles of interests for larger shares of the product of industry. One mode of dealing with this distribution would be to leave it to free contract under the play of natural laws. If we do not do this, and if the State interferes with the distribution, how can we stop short of the mediaæval plan of reiterated and endless interference, with constant diminution of the total product to be divided?

"We have seen. . . what the tyranny was in the decay of the Roman Empire, when each was in servitude to all; but there is one form of that tyranny which may be still worse. That tyranny will be realized when the same system of servitudes is established in a democratic state; when a man's neighbors are his masters; when the 'ethical power of public opinion' bears down upon him at all hours and as to all matters; when his place is assigned to him and he is held in it, not by an emperor or his satellites, who cannot be everywhere all the time, but by the other members of the 'village community' who can.

"So long as the struggle for individual liberty took the form of a demand that the king or the privileged classes should take their hands off, it was popular and was believed to carry with it the cause of justice and civilization. Now that the governmental machine is brought within everyone's reach, the seduction of power is just as masterful over a democratic faction as ever it was over king or barons. No governing organ has yet abstained from any function because it acknowledged itself ignorant or incompetent. The new powers in the State show no disposition to do it. Nevertheless, the activity of the State, under the new democratic system, shows itself every year more at the mercy of clamorous factions, and legislators find themselves constantly under greater pressure to act, not by their deliberate judgment of what is expedient, but in such a way as to quell clamor, although against their judgment of public interests. It is rapidly becoming the chief art of the legislator to devise measures which shall sound as if they satisfied clamor while they only cheat it."

Sounds like Sumner was looking through a telescope and viewing the events of today under the "ignorant or incompetent" likes of the Chicago politicians and their fellow 11%-approval-rating members of Congress.

This call to the Far Left's "clamor" should be a cautionary warning to citizens who love liberty.

Ready for what?......... to sit back and accept it? All I’ve seen so far is bitching. I seriously don’t think anyone will ever step outside their comfort zone and in the end we will be like Cuba or Venezuela. Until people rebel and refuse to cooperate then it’s a dead end street. Sorry, that’s how I see it. What happened after death care was passed by lies, bribes, cheating, and secret meetings in the middle of the night? NOTHING!! Not a damn thing other than pissing and moaning. Now how many are willing to tell them to stick it where the sun don’t shine and when they get their forms from the IRS just write FU in the portion where you have to report health care.
How many businesses are willing to say FU and tell them to shove that 1099 crap right up their stinkin you know whats. I could go on and on, you get the picture.
What time is American Idol on? Now let them take that off the air and you will see riots in the street.

You are right when they dumped 600,000 refugees in Miami we should have rioted,When LBJ did the great Society and Social Security Theft we should have rioted, when Murdering Ted Kennedy rewrote our Immigration laws we should have Rioted,Now it looks like all it will take is for someone to go into the street and say “I can't take it any more” I want my country back ,then it will start.

I believe that you're right. But I don't think anybody has the balls to do anything. We've become a nation of pansies. Nobody wants to upset the apple cart, even as the apples are obviously rotting.

I can now clearly see how Stalin rose to power in the Soviet Union. How Hitler gained power in Germany. Why? Because those that knew failed to act.

Because it isn't just one little whiny little beotch. It's Obama. It's Pelosi. It's Reid. Clinton. Every democrat in the federal government, along with their propaganda media show. It's a generation of uninformed youth who have no clue what the Holocaust even was, let alone what communism did to Russia, Cuba, and other previously prosperous nations. It's decades of incremental diversion away from this country's constitutional roots and towards socialism. In short, it's a large pool of whiny little beotches. Not a majority (yet) but a very large pool.

IMHO, it's time to chlorinate that pool.
