We Should Start A List
So I included "impeachment" in the tags because I've got a dollar right here that says, before his first term is over, one or another Congresscritter is going to ride the wave of the guaranteed to happen future Obama-hating by introducing a bill of impeachment against him, esp as the Bailout fallout speeds the rate at which the economy tanks and nothing gets better for Little People, and brighter Republicans take advantage of the natural opportunity Obama and his bailout buddies have provided them. But I had the thought, even as I realize this blog is already sort of a running one, that we should create "The List" of Obama's various betrayals and failures to live up to his label of "Democrat" and otherwise chooses to shit upon the progressive and liberal element to his party. I'm betting it's going to be a long list, over the next four years. And Oborg members: please don't whine at me that "he's not yet in office." If you think he's not already directing the actions and statements of the Dem party as its leader, you don't know much about how the Village works. I said I'd wait until after the election and I lived up to that. Now, I want my promised results. Or does "compromise" and "unity" only mean such between center-rightists and far-right theocrats and neocons? Sorry, but lefties like me aren't going away, and we're not going to shut up.
I'll go first.
1. Ordering Senate Dems to "make nice" with Lieberman, and allow him to keep his chair and other Senate privs, in the name of "working together." Hint from the Wise, Mr. President-Elect: you can't do business with traitors who stab you in the back (and front). They'll fuck you over every time.
Your turn, Gentle Readers.
