...meanwhile, email from the dark side: Dreams of Obama of Yesteryear
unsolicited email | Nov 22, 2010 | moveon.org

Posted on 11/22/2010 1:23:30 PM PST by Jim Robinson

Dear MoveOn member [cough, cough],

Remember Barack Obama in 2008? The guy who refused to go along with a "dumb war" and said, "In the unlikely story that is America, there has never been anything false about hope."

I miss that guy. Imagine if someone told you in 2008 that Barack Obama was actually thinking about signing legislation to extend the Bush tax giveaways for the rich.1 I wouldn't have believed it.

Now more than ever, we need the Barack Obama we elected in 2008—the smart, tough, hopeful progressive champion who inspired millions of us—to stand up and say "no" to a millionaire bailout.

Right now, with the change we all fought for hanging in the balance, President Obama needs to hear from those of us who supported him the most.

So we're asking MoveOn members nationwide to record a video message from the heart to tell President Obama to go to the mat to stop any extension of the millionaire tax giveaways—and to bring back the progressive fighter we all knew and supported in 2008.

They are just figuring out that the cake was a lie.

They keep saying tax cuts for the rich. Do any poor people actually pay Federal taxes? Last I checked about 50% of Americans pay nothing in Federal taxes.

Since I pay taxes, I must be rich. Bring on the tax cuts! Woohoo!!!

Amazing how the left still hope that he'll come through for them after he's told them so many lies.

I just wonder if the Nobel people are going to take away Obama's peace prize since their boy can't get the START treaty enacted. Otherwise why in heck did he get the prize again?

...do they mean the one who signed on the dotted line to enact the second TARP bill?

...speaking of millionaire bailouts... Oh, wait! That was a BILLIONAIRE bailout! My mistake!

So, Mr. Robinson, will you be making a “heart-felt” video and sending it in?

My fantasy dream is that Obama is impeached, removed from office, tried for fraud in presenting himself as a “natural born citizen”, found guilty, and sent to Ft. Leavenworth for the rest of his life. The first President in History to have his Secret Service Bodyguard there in a prison cell to protect him from Bubba.

Until the tiumeframe for Secret Service Protection runs out.
Hopefully before his sentence expires.

My fantasy dream is to have Bammy decompensate on national TV, mumble a bunch of profanities, and stumble off the stage in a complete fog and mental breakdown. From the murmurings coming from inside the WH, we are not far off from that happening.

The MSM knows this could happen, too, so he is always on a time delay broadcast.

All we would see is a commercial break or a "technical difficulty" followed by a written transcript of all the wonderful things he said.

I don’t think he can be impeached for fraud in the matter of his eligibility because he isn’t the president if he got there illegally. Maybe it is a matter for the FBI or the DC police to simply arrest him and get him tried and then imprisoned.

When you find a DU thread this historic, eye-popping and over-the-top percolating with seething hatred for Obama, you might consider pinging the DUmmie FUnnies duo. This is the single most amazing thread I’ve ever seen at DU—quite a find. Thanks for the tip.

Fantasywriter, Thanks for the great advice.

PJ/Charles, I sure hope you find this DUmmmie thread worthy of satirizing.
