Annals of career "progressive" idiocy

Oh, Booman, Booman, you're either ruining my Christmas Eve, or giving this blogger the bestest gift he's ever had:

At this point in his presidency I think it is fair to say that Obama is already in the conversation as best president since Abraham Lincoln.

The numbers all go to 11, right across the board, don't they?

Lordy. Make up your own jokes!

I guess he forgot the two wars, the trillions involved in conducting them, the assault on womens reproductive rights he agreed to with his healthcare health insurance bill, forgetting his statements on taking the tax levels back to the Clinton levels for the rich. Gitmo anyone?

It's late and I don't want to think about more of this.

That is a frightening website. Best comment though was how lousy most of our presidents have been. The best and brightest don't go to Washington.

What other sites do you monitor for this sort of thing? In Montana, "Left in the West" has been cheerleading for Tester and Obama. I've decided to re-engage on the local level, but it is painful to hear justifications for Tester's terrible votes. One of his worst for me was the vote against mortgage write-down in bankruptcy (cramdown) and his DREAM act vote.

The essence of propaganda is the lie. And as we all know the more effective the propaganda, the Bigger the Lie. There is very little profit in small lies so to maximize gain the lie must be maximized as well.

They're as batty there as what appears to be about half the people at wonder they don't get along.

but Booman does. He's definitely in the spirit of the season, so maybe he has some internal wires crossed?

Meanwhile, not even Obama really knows how to love himself:

Obama the Great - if he does say so himself


The president, fresh from his successful triangulation of the Democrats in negotiating the tax deal, spoke as if he were an entity distinct from Republicans and Democrats alike.

He said he would "take to heart" voters' wishes for common ground, "and I hope my Democratic and Republican friends will do the same." He suggested that "we've got to look at some of our old dogmas, both Democrats and Republicans." The man who famously spoke of the need to "spread the wealth around" could be heard telling CBS News's Mark Knoller, "We celebrate wealth. We celebrate somebody like a Steve Jobs.

Because that is what this holiday season is about, celebrating wealth, and the wealthy who centralize it. And yes it's "common ground" that voters wish for, not improved lives, not jobs, not a better future. What they really want is "common ground".
