Greenwald Comments On Obama's Criticism Of Liberals


One sample, a quote from Obama at a DNC $30,000-a-plate fundraiser:

Democrats, just congenitally, tend to get -- to see the glass as half empty. (Laughter.) If we get an historic health care bill passed -- oh, well, the public option wasn't there.  If you get the financial reform bill passed -- then, well, I don't know about this particular derivatives rule, I'm not sure that I'm satisfied with that. And gosh, we haven't yet brought about world peace and -- (laughter.) I thought that was going to happen quicker. (Laughter.) You know who you are. (Laughter.) We have had the most productive, progressive legislative session in at least a generation.

Aren't you grateful that the current president is not a Republican? Oh, wait...


  1. It is amazing how he refers to Democrats as if they were "the other" and not the party he is supposed to be in.

  2. Bryan, Obama isn't in any meaningful sense a Democrat, at least as we once used the term only a few short years ago. He merely co-opted the party for purposes of obtaining the office. Now he is equally contemptuous of people like you, who are onto him and didn't vote for him, and people like me, who closed their eyes, crossed their fingers, pressed the button, hoped for the best in electing him and got the worst instead. Obama is a member of the "Me, Me, Me!" party.
