FORMER OBAMA SUPPORTERS REPUDIATE THEIR PRIMARY VOTE
Interesting new blog -- Former Obama Supporters speak out about their disillusionment.
More than one pundit has asked incredulously, "What did you think you were voting for? He told you who he was, you just weren't listening ..." as if all those who bought into the "new kind of politics" and the hope/change/unity shtick are just credulous morons.
I disagree. I think they're idealistic, that they're yearning for a more responsive government and a better way of getting there. I'm tired of people blaming voters for their votes instead of pointing the finger where it belongs -- at cynical, lying politicians who betray the trust of the people who believed they meant what they said. I don't like it when the Blogger Boyz, the media and pundits whine about Clinton supporters who won't fall in line, and I don't like it when the same people roll their eyes at Obamacrats who are distressed about their candidate's about-face on issues that matter to them and regret their primary vote.
Get this straight, you REAL cretins of the media and the punditry -- voters aren't the problem. YOU ARE, for not doing your duty in vetting the candidates on issues and ideology, on their track record and statements rather than handicapping the horserace and concentrating on the petty "character" dialogues and narratives you all love so much to invent.
