Kos Throws Obama Under the Bus
LGF ^ | July 1, 2008

Posted on 07/01/2008 6:05:42 PM PDT by Fox_Mulder77

Markos “Screw Them” Moulitsas will be withholding his money from Barack Obama until Obama toes the progressive line: Daily Kos: Rewarding good behavior.

Maybe what looks like cowering to me is really part of that “moving to the center” stuff everyone keeps talking about. But there is a line between “moving to the center” and stabbing your allies in the back out of fear of being criticized. And, of late, he’s been doing a lot of unecessary stabbing, betraying his claims of being a new kind of politician. Not that I ever bought it, but Obama is now clearly not looking much different than every other Democratic politician who has ever turned his or her back on the base in order to prove centrist bona fides. That’s not an indictment, just an observation.

Now I know there’s a contingent around here that things Obama can do no wrong, and he must never be criticized, and if you do, well f*ck you! I respect the sentiment, but will respectfully disagree.

Because nothing says “respect” like a hearty “f*ck you!”

It was Markos Moulitsas, all right.

He curses and he can't spell.

Holy Toledo! I have heard that Obama is the most liberal Senator, or one of the most liberal.

So, he’s already very liberal, but he’s not liberal enough for the Daily Kos? Is that the case here, he’s not liberal enough to satisfy Kos?

Sheesh, how radical is Daily Kos? How radical a candidate do they need to be happy?????

Fact is, the only reason Black Whiteguilt Oblack is the nominee is that his name isn’t Clinton.

Just a hissy fit between a wacko leftist and a scheming leftist. They’re both still LEFTISTS and that is the danger.

Remember, Joe Lieberman scored a ZERO from the American Conservative Union not so long ago and he was deemed a “right-wing puppet of Chimpy McBushitler” by the moonbats.

Progressive is just a nice word for Stalinist.

I am beginning to wonder if even Stalin is Left enough for a lot of these moonbats. They all seem to want to out-Left each other, it is really quite a spectacle.

This is nothing but a SHAM. Kos and Obama have a pact, I guarantee it. Obama moves away from Kos and the appearance is that they have separated. Kind of like what happened with Jeremial Wright and Obama. They had a public split but I guarantee you it’s just for show. Obama toes the line on the Daily Kos political line. They got him there and they will make sure he obeys their edicts. Don’t fall for this folks.

Oh good grief...this is a patently transparent move by the Lefties to make Main Street America think that Obama is just too darn conservative for the Left. Those mean-spirited Republicans must be lying again when they say Barry Hussein has the most liberal voting record in the Senate.

Really, after the Clintoon Era, we can smell these charades a mile away.

Funny, because they have to know that the only time Obama even approaches the center is when he’s sitting on the john (and that’s only because Michelle yells if he goes too far to the left)

The technical term for this sort of thing is "triangulation". Somewhere down the road kos will come out and, claiming pragmatism and saying that despite any differences with Obama it's still imperative that he wins in November over McCain, "renew" his support him.

I don’t know what the KOS idiots expected. They surely have enough political smarts to know the old drill. Run to the left (or right) in the primaries, run to the middle in the general election.

Obama is actually making a smart political move by distancing himself from the Kos-Moveon.org types.
He will gain two votes for every one he loses.

What if you and KOS are wrong?

I don’t think Obama is left or right. I think he’s off the reservation..... too radical to be considered political. He just says whatever he needs to say in order to get elected. He panders to the left when he needs them, then moves to the center to win in Nov.

He’s a radical. Plain and simple. And the KOmmies don’t realize that he’ll throw them in the gulags if he has to.

IMHO, it's GREAT to watch Obamassiah toss the "young ones", who worked and organized their butts off for him, be thrown UTB (Under The Bus) ....be it ever so slowly as the REAL campaigning begins.

Just like frogs in a slow boiling pot, think about all their small but desperately needed $1-$500 or so donations, that may have been incrimentally donated when asked to give repeatedly to get Obamassiah THIS far, all the on-the-ground labor and free man-hours they have invested to hand him the nomination.

If it weren't for THEM, Hillary would have been the dem 2008 POTUS candidate. It's JUST NOW starting to "come home to roost" to the "young ones", that they were really all the time only considered as nothing more than, (in very applicable Marxist terms,) "Useful Idiots", and not his REAL base after all, as the Obamassiah 2008 campaign bus crunches them BACK into reality as it slowly but unwaveringly steers itself to the center of the campaign road to finish it's quest for the 2008 POTUS attempt.

As many FReepers have already stated MANY times:

"They'll never produce enough popcorn to meet the demand for this kinda stuff!!"

Obama Who's Left Seal

...and one for the "young ones" slowly being crunched under the bus:

Obama Easter Bunny

They don't like Hugo Chavez because he is too pro-American. They think Communism failed because we didn't give it enough of a chance.

Kos is a fool.

His rage, narcissism, blasphemy and profanity will destroy him in the end.

What is pathetic is the fact that Obama has to answer to these people.

Losers, all.
