Obama throws Kos under the bus
OBAMA: No, look, I think this is fair. I would point out, though, for example, that when I voted for a tort reform measure that was fiercely opposed by the trial lawyers, I got attacked pretty hard from the left.
During the Roberts –
WALLACE: John Roberts, Supreme Court.
OBAMA: John Roberts nomination, although I voted against him, I strongly defended some of my colleagues who had voted for him on the Daily Kos, and was fiercely attacked [clutches pearls] as somebody who is, you know, caving in to Republicans on these fights.
God. What an asshole. Kos purges his whole site of [not Obama] supporters and trashes his brand for the sake of The Precious, and this is the thanks he gets?
And I'm playing the world's smallest violin, too. Don't say you weren't warned, kidz. That Obama would throw anybody under the bus was shown, long ago, when his campaign destroyed another online community on MySpace. Just more of the "casual poetry"* of the Obama campaign. And if the OFB want to be abused, so be it.
NOTE Kid Oakland's "casual poetry" post is my all-time favorite Obama fluffery post. You just can't avert your eyes....
NOTE I think (hope) that VastLeft has an analysis coming of Obama's FUX transcript. Listen in, as Obama shows his tender regard for the capital gains tax! (Charles Gibson will be so proud...)
