Response to woo me with science (Reply #78)

Wed Nov 14, 2012, 05:59 AM

80. Your posting history is what made my make that comment. Indeed, you feel "sold out."

Your words, not mine. Am I "sold out" because Udall and Hickenlooper are not progressives? Fuck no! We passed marijuana legalization! The first time in the history of the entire human planetary civilization!

I have never seen a post by you advocating contacting the "Third Way" democrats to get progressive legislation passed. Indeed, if I were to make an OP about "Do you think Third Wayers or Republicans will pass liberal policies" I guarantee you that 1) you wouldn't respond and say "yes" nor would you respond and say that it was worth contacting them to try to get those policies passed!

Indeed, you've formed a defeatist position with regards to not only the Obama administration but to Democrats in general (even though, objectively, factually, 1/3rd of them are 100% progressive, and another 1/3rd are moderate and willing to accept progressivism).

Obama is not a leftist, he is a moderate. The only "selling out" he's done is in your mind as far as the right wing has manipulated you and others into believing he's adopted their policies. I've seen enough bullshit right wing fascist lying talking points about how Obama "stole" 600 million from Medicare to fund "Obamacare" to know how their doublespeaking minds work. They don't care about truth and you're being manipulated by their untruths.

How have you been "sold out"? It's simple, you haven't. Indeed, everything Obama has done is consistent with his pre-election rhetoric. Everything with perhaps the exception of foreign policy (though one can make the argument that his foreign policy was interpolatable and falls in line perfectly with polls of the US population).

So please, spare me the outrage, Obama is the most consistent President in US history, he ran a campaign, followed his proposals to the tee (where he had the power to control the outcome) and indeed, totally destroyed anyones rose colored glassed perceptions of him.

You are wrong. You may not be a Republican in disguise (I never said that, btw). But you are certainly, 100%, someone who drives the Republican narrative. You are, inexplicably, and unintentionally, working for them.

Your posts help them more than they hurt them and they 100% do not help drive activists to act against the Republicans.

It's simple. It's really fucking simple. Do you agree or disagree, yes or fucking no, that the Third Way or the Republicans would be open to progressive policies?

If you say yes you're a fucking liar.
