And how is he going to get out of it? So let me get this straight – he’s done very little other than sell out progressives and pander to the right, and yet he’s losing independent voters because he’s “too progressive.” Will he just pander further to the right now? Or will he say “fuck y’all, you hate me anyway, I’m doing this without you?” And I don’t mean healthcare, because that shit has been dead for a long time. I mean on everything.
It strikes me that if you pander to the right that hates you no matter (cough* because you’re black and “radical” and “socialist” and “fascist” and just all around scary *cough), and you alienate your friends on the left, you’re left with um, no one?
And I haven’t talked about this yet, because frankly, to tell the truth, I don’t really care about Obama that much. I’m slightly disillusioned because I thought he was smarter than he actually is, but other than that, I don’t give it much attention. But I do find it an interesting predicament, the one he finds himself in now… I’m interested/dreading to see how it all turns out.
