Primary Constituent-Payoff Money

Obama displays strong leadership qualities – for Wall Street and the corporations.

The president has shown repeatedly that his first constituent is: The Payoff Money (sometimes referred to as “campaign contributions”).

The smile that beguiles. Does it reveal an empty soul?

Although his support remains strong among genetically disposed Democrats, polls show the president losing support among liberals.

Let’s not forget Barack Obama’s contribution to this sad state of affairs. He has failed liberals on every major issue of the day. The wars go on, health insurance is still in need of reform, financial regulation is meager at best, Net Neutrality will succumb to corporate demands, the Bush tax cuts are destined to become permanent and reductions in Social Security loom ahead.

We’ve lost the battle because Obama is on the other side. And with his recent appointments of high level advisers, he thumbs thumbs his nose at us.

The debacle of the recent elections tells us that independent voters have come to terms with Obama’s treachery. Liberals must now do the same and recognize that Obama is a Blue Dog pseudo-Democrat who has not earned the support of his base. Vote for Obama at your peril.

If no major candidate represents your views, when you vote in 2012 leave the presidential field blank. Abstention can speak loudly. Do not waste yet another vote.

OBAMA SUPPORT DWINDLING

I will fulfill my obligation to vote as always. But in the future I refuse to vote for any candidate whose views I cannot support. I wasted two votes on Clinton and one on Obama – both men right wingers on economic issues – and I refuse to waste any more votes on the right wing of the so-called Democratic Party.

Obama lost the House in 2010 because of his duplicity on the health insurance issue. He engaged in backroom deals with the Pharma and Hospital industries and personally killed the public option. His deceit was exposed and he lost the election for the Democratic Party in the House.

Obama has been an ardent supporter of cuts to Social Security and Medicare. You’ve have only to refer to his rigged Cat Food Commission to substantia­te that accusation­. More recently he has put SS and Medicare cuts on the table in the pretend deficit “crisis” negotiatio­ns.

Moreover, while attending to the trumped up deficit issue, Obama has ignored the unemployme­nt crisis, the health insurance crisis and the revenue crisis (tax collection­s are at the lowest level of GDP since the 1950s).

Why? There’s an old mob saying: You gotta have the geetus. And that goes double in American politics. Obama intends to get his share. So far, so good.

SPECTACULARLY INEPT

The cuts the president is focusing on will impact largely on the social safety net.

The multimillionaire whose multis are about to increase dramatically. 

By putting millions of Americans on the chopping block Obama committed a political act of spectacula­r ineptitude no matter how you try to spin it. Eleven dimensiona­l chess?????  More like Tiddlywink­s.

The Republican­s will have a field day.

The sound bites are about to go into production and will hit the airwaves continuous­ly beginning next summer. “Obama wanted to cut Social Security and Medicare. The Republican­s turned him down.”

Obama could be crushed for this blatant misstep alone.

Real Democrats have to put distance between themselves and Obama or he will take down the party along with his presidency just as he did in 2010 with his duplicity on the public option.

Yes, Republican­s frame the debate just as they always do. But in this case Obama is their most ardent advocate. Perhaps he sees greatness in his legacy if he can tame the deficit “crisis”. But his advocacy has blinded him to the genuine crises of the day: Unemployme­nt, the health insurance crisis and the root of all this evil – the revenue crisis.

If no one on his staff pulled him back from offering the self-immol­ating cuts to the social programs, it means only one thing: The White House is unalterabl­y committed to cutting Social Security and Medicare. If Obama doesn’t do it this term, he will do it next should he be reelected.

 

Sadly, liberals are already beginning to rally around this man’s political corpse. Slaved to the Rahm Doctrine – that liberals have no place else to go so they can be discarded to be resurrected only on election day – the left wing of the party will do what it can to reverse what more and more seems like a lost cause.

However, progressives must consider alternatives. For example, if a Republican president is elected Democrats will have enormous incentive to stand fast against unreasonable, unwarranted and unjustified spending cuts and address the real crises of the day: Unemployment, health insurance and the root of it all – the revenue crisis.
