Skip to comments.Obamas Bad Bargain (the left is becoming unhinged)
Posted on 08/03/2011 9:54:12 AM PDT by Huskrrrr
The most distressing outcome of the deficit hysteria gripping Washington may be what Barack Obama has revealed about himself. It was disconcerting to watch the president slip-slide so easily into voicing the fallacious economic arguments of the right. It was shocking when he betrayed core principles of the Democratic Party, portraying himself as high-minded and brave because he defied his loyal constituents. Supporters may hope this rightward shift was only a matter of political tactics, but I think Obama has at last revealed his sincere convictions. If he wins a second term, he will be free to strike a truly rotten grand bargain with Republicanspragmatic compromises that will destroy the crown jewels of democratic reform.
I suggest they put up their own guy for Primary in 2012!
pragmatic compromises that will destroy the crown jewels of democratic reform”
Please, please tell us what the crown jewels of reform are. I know, but if they actually told voters exactly what they wanted then they would be hung for treason

This comment coming from a group who’s economic record is one of massive fail?
Hey commies, go back to something you actually understand...like....er....uh.....
Neither has anyone on the right.
Obama ‘betraying the core principles of the Dem party’?
Epic economic failure, Gulags, Mass Murder,
Nader - Kucinich 2012
"If you think 0bama has messed things up, wait and see what we can do!"
What leftist principles are they talking about? They have no principles!
Good - now we all can despise him.
The left has become unhinged? They were hinged before?
Actually Kucinich would be the perfect guy to take the US into formal bankruptcy. He has experience doing it when he was mayor of Cleveland.
It’s fake leftist outrage to make Obama look moderate.
Clinton did this, too.
Why the primary? The left should run a credible third party condidate, capable of scamming Democrat voters.
He is doing to the dumb-o-crats what he does to ANYONE who come between HIM and HIS re-election chances, throw them under the bus.
It is always about HIM, FIRST, LAST AND ALWAYS HIM
And still his will slaves follow him while he views them as under the bus fodder whenever he deems their usefullness over.
I just hope that this doesn’t convince anyone that Obama is now a “moderate”.
Where is Ralph Nader when we (giggle) need him most?
