WTF!!! No vote on healthcare until after Christmas?

This is really pissing me off.  This was supposed to be done in July, then September, then October, then by Thanksgiving, and then by Christmas.  No, no, no.  No more waiting.  President Obama, you get off your lazy behind right now and tell Harry Reid that he better have this done by Christmas or there is going to be hell to pay.  Waiting until Christmas was a big, big risk, and the last chance for a bill.

Pretty soon we are going to hear them say that we are going to have to wait until Easter, then Memorial Day, then Labor Day, and then after the midterm elections(when Republicans will have control) for a bill.  Then when the electoin results come in, this weak puppy of a President will drop any reform like a hot potato.

Shame on you Barack Obama.  Shame on you for being lazy and not showing your party leadership on this issue.  You have lost my vote in 2012 if you dont get your act together.

Christ, can you even read?

That is purely Snowe's speculation -- that source doesn't say jack shit about what Obama, Pelosi, or Reid think.

Interesting that you choose that word for our first African American president in response to an article that has fuck-all to do with him. You know what I think? I think you just wanted an excuse to call a black man lazy.

You have lost my vote in 2012 if you dont get your act together.  

As if you voted for him the first go round. Pfft! You wouldn't vote for Barack Obama if he sent you your own personal pet pony.

Jesus, this blog really is garbage.

I did vote for him

And even heavily supported him in the primary.  However, the man a supported is not the same man who is now President.

Re: Christ, can you even read?

I hate to butt in here, but I've read a few of Kent's diaries and it appears that he has been exhaustive in his efforts to ward off certain disaster.  As I have a very busy schedule I haven't been able to digest all of his work, but I can see that had I followed his advice from the outset that the Democratic party would be not just relevant, but vibrant and forceful in strong and committed opposition to the wrong-headed and dangerous policies of the McCain administration.  From just a few dozen Kent diaries I can see that my election is, in fact, what has sunk our party to such historic lows.  I am now going to direct my staff to adjust their polling and projections to the Kant standard.  

Thank you for all your effort and please accept my apology for the failure.

Sincerely,

Me

Kent is actually Nostradamus from future.
I hope you President Barack, please ask him to read the future for you.

Re: Christ, can you even read?

Jesus, this blog really is garbage.

But so much better with your input.

Personally, I am not so sure that President Obama is "lazy," so much as he is shiftless, oversexed, and after the pristine little virgin daughters of real hardworking Americans.

Lazy
While I agree with you that many people are using covers for their racism and using words or complaints that ooze racism.  Shooting a monkey and saying someone else will have to right the stimulis bill now in a cartoon the most glaring example i've seen.  I think you are reaching a bit far.  Yes Obama is black, and yes a common negative stereotype of black people is that they are lazy.
But every single criticism of Obama is not some well disguised or psycological slip indicating internal racism.  Is a lot of racism sublimated as ridiculous critiscism, yes absolutely.  But its loose reaching like this that makes our legitimate complaints about the racist attacks on Obama and Democrates fall on deaf ears among moderates and the few liberal republicans left.  There is plenty of racism out there to call out, lets not do it in here amongst our own.

Kent is not

"one of our own," or are you unaware of his record here on MyDD?  

by sricki 2009-10-25 09:07AM | 0 recs
Hey Kent, what do you think about Anne Quindlen?

Anne Quindlen thinks Obama is a cerebral consensus builder, whereas MyDD's resident genius Kent thinks Obama is lazy.

I'm not sure whom I should give more weightage: Kent or Anne Quindlen?

Readers of this blog: Please help.

Re: Anne Quindlen?

Of course I'd like to go with Anne, but so far she has ceded the MyDD floor.

Calm down

I think everything's going to start happening pretty quickly, the only slow up being the writing of an opt-out provision which sort of came in late in the game.
