Obama Cowering and Kos complains


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.

I'm having more than a lot of trouble with this, TB Blue. You are actually linking to Frank Salvato, a guy who brags about being on The O'Reilly Factor and about being published in the Washington Times, the far right mouthpiece published by the insanse Reverend Moon.

Honestly, you're using this to support your ridiculous footer caveat thing?

Furthermore, this page is directly linked to a Frontiers of Freedom website. Do you have any idea what that is? A Republican think tank founded by former GOP Senator Malcolm Wallop.

What are you doing, TB Blue?

Look, you may not like Obama -- why is anyone's guess. You may be filled with rage and bitterness because Clinton lost.

But how about acting like a Democrat and working to get Democrats elected -- even if it's not Obama, if you're going to be that much of a baby about it. How about some positive posts about Democrats running in Florida, or the Bay area?

I would think that would be more of an interest for someone who won the Netroots Award for Best Local Blog, instead of linking to Republican propaganda sites in order to bolster nonsensical and false claims.

Look, TB Blue -- Democrats have a chance -- a real chance -- in November (as Kos notes in his post). Can you at least work towards that end, rather than doing everything you can to tear down our nominee today?
