99. I'm finished listening to speeches from Obama.
Just look at all the God Damned hype being foisted upon us, while the message from Baucus is muddier and muddier as we head towards winter.

I can just see it now. Obama says:

"Times are Tough"
"We can't afford it"
"The health care industry supports thousands of Jobs"
"My DLC Handlers made a deal with the Health Care Insurers"
"We are waging two wars, and money is in short supply"
"My investors have already bought stock in the Health Care sector because the Public Option is dead"
"We haven't raised the debt ceiling to 14 Trillion dollars yet"
"We need a uniquely American Solution"
"Reach across the Aisle"
"Look ahead, not backward"
"A little girl asked me the other day..."
"My organic Garden is contaminated with lead from Sewage Sludge they used in the 80's to prove it was safe"
"Rahm say you should shut up and toe the line like the Republicans do!"

"Blahh Blah Blah"

I'm through taking a deep breath of polluted air. Obama and the DLC went out of their way to throw the left under the bus early on. Now I don't expect him to be enything more than another Corporate Toadlicker with a fantastic PR machine. Unfortunately, the PR they are using is outdated and Compromised due to the Internet, the last 8 years of similar exploitation, and people who are sick and tired of the same old shit repackaged over and over again.
