If you have "no place to go," come here!

Too bad it's not appropriate to look back at the 2008 campaign...

... otherwise, we could watch dissectin' Danny Schechter tell the story they* didn't want you to know about: Barack Obama's historically historic historicism.

Ain't it grand? He's the "People's** PresidentTM"!


* Other than the entire media and blogosphere, and nearly every Democratic insider

** Other than for people who needed mortgage relief, single-payer health care, the separation of church and state, the end of DADT, a downsized military, the trillions handed to Hank Paulson's golfing buddies, the repudiation of Reagan's values, the restoration of Constitutional government, and a trustworthy, un-misogynistic, un-classist, un-ageist left-blogosphere

Actually, bitter is the new angry, isn't it? The forbidden emotion!

Schechter the Director? Change, indeed...

Obama, for all his shortcomings, which are becoming more obvious by the day, has pioneered the way change must be won — not by people on the top, but by all of us. It remains for “us” to hold him accountable. We live in a culture of amnesia - it is important to learn the lessons of the recent past.

Are we really supposed to learn the lessons of the recent past?

Obama seems time and again as the status quo president: don't change the banks, don't change Gitmo, don't change health care, don't change insurance, etc.

Obama: the change the auto industry president.
