Some quit their jobs and took a substantial paycut to volunteer, but now are being stiffed.

Welcome to the crowd. But it must be frustrating to have been on his side and then be treated like a prole.

They are of no further use to him. Why should he be bothered with them?

Some people are so clueless.

It is the less than lethal fate (so far) of the Dictator’s useful idiots.

LOL what a bunch of tools. If only they stuck their heads out of Odumbo’s ass to breath the fresh air, then they would have known they were used.

Liberals are brain-dead morons

While he may enjoy having them around, a personality like Obama’s distains sycophants even more than enemies.

He’s saving seats for Hugo and Fidel, in case they are still alive by then.

With all of the underhanded treachery behind this Pres. it’s not surprising that his hench-fools are being left out. They might say something about whatever they did which would open Another Congressional Investigation.

My own opinion is that they are darn lucky he didn’t have them taken out into the Rose Garden and shot in the back
of the head by the Secret Service.

These dopes would still support the big Zero even after he snubbed them and used them like the narcissist that he is.

When will the liberal constituents learn that they merely are platforms by which the elitists maintain power, and the leaders really don’t want to rub elbows with them.

I wonder which staff members were doing the complaining. It would be interesting to know.

For instance, a Toronto newspaper reported that the reason that Lisa Jackson resigned was because Obama had made the decision to allow the Keystone pipeline to go through and she could not support that decision. Instead, Obama is going to nominate Christine Gregoire, who has demonstrated a willingness to abandon her green constituency and values when Obama calls. Jackson would be a distraction at the inauguration.

Sort of like claiming rape after willingly jumping into bed with Obama.

They will never learn.

The success of the libs is that they don’t allow their followers to read any dissenting publications, or make comments that do not toe the lib line.

It works (if you are a braindead zombie, which most of the are).

I wish our side had leadership half that motivated. Or even a tenth.

This is the equivalent of a guy coming out of a strip club totally broke and then complaining to his freinds: “...but she said she really liked me”

Too bad they know nothing but their programmed truths.

If they bothered with a little Communist history, they woud find many of the human tools (useful idiots) who helped raise the Russian Revolution were offed along with a few million "White Russian" opponents of the Revolution.

Useful idiots nearly always get their just deserts.
