I’m outraged. About this, about his (until recently) defense of DOMA, about the wimpy-ass way he handled health care reform, about a lot of things.
But it’s a DAMN sure bet that McCain would’ve fucked people like me over harder, faster, and longer, had he been elected. And it’s a DAMN sure bet that the Republican candidate in 2012 is going to be made of the same cloth - spouting social conservative platitudes and dogwhistles, making promises to continue attacking health care, medical services for women, equal rights for gays and lesbians, and many many other issues that are important to me. All the while promising corporations and Wall Street that he or she will let those entities bend me over and fuck me up the ass without lube.
I’m outraged that Obama hasn’t done enough, and has reneged on promises. But anyone on the Republican party side isn’t going to even promise to do any better in terms of the things that matter to me. And there have been things that Obama’s accomplished that I agree with that a Republican president, especially John McCain, wouldn’t have attempted.
So, I don’t know exactly what you’re expecting - we’re supposed to be so disappointed that Obama is the middle-of-the-road Republican in Democrat’s clothing we all knew he was that we’ll shift our vote to a right-wing Republican?
