Obama is now clearly not looking much different than every other Democratic politician who has ever turned his or her back on the base in order to prove centrist bona fides.
From Daily Kos:
So many of you are upset that I pulled back my credit card last night, making a last minute decision to hold back on a $2,300 contribution to Obama.
Let me explain further:
1)reversed course and capitulated on FISA, not just turning back on the Constitution, but on the whole concept of "leadership".
2)not-so-veiled swipe at MoveOn in his "patriotism" speech.
3)reinforced right-wing and media talking points.
