Now that the 2008 Obama campaign's promise of change that became the politics of compromise is on its way to becoming the shame of capitulation, many of us “we told you so” people are still being harangued by the cult known as the O-pologists! These people hang out on various social media waiting to swoop down and try to stifle the free speech of anyone who expresses anything that differs from their constant droning, unconditional worship of the President. They take exception to ANYONE who dares to say that Obama has become the President of compromise rather than of change or that he is not acting in the best interests of working people, the retired and the poor.
One of their favorite rants is that “you progressives stayed home in 2010 and let the Republicans win in many places” which gave the Republicans the edge. Personally, I didn't stay home, I let myself get suckered into the same old lesser of two evils ploy and reluctantly voted along party lines, knowing that Obama and a party made dysfunctional by it's Blue Dogs didn't deliver on many of his and its campaign promises. Those who decided to stay home, even after I urged them on the air to get out and vote did so because they felt betrayed. I could understand that because I also felt betrayed! Many of the reasons why lots of us felt betrayed are found in numerous articles on this website, so I won't go into them here.
O-pologists, let's get one thing straight, the people who didn't vote stayed home because they felt that they had to choose between toxic Republicans and compromising Democrats who are Republican enablers. They didn't cause the problems we have today, the President's failure to fight for the middle class, working people, seniors and the poor caused the voter apathy. Let's give All Americans a reason to get out and vote in 2012 by giving them someone worth electing from a party that truly represents working people, a Labor Party. We must support its candidate with the same zeal that we supported President Obama in 2008! Hey, I wonder if Bernie Sanders is available?
Have you noticed that there's no one on Talk Radio who speaks for John and Jane Q. Public? I want to change that situation. When I go into the studio and get on the air, I say the things that you've always wanted to say. The big corporate interests have their lobbyists, I want to be your voice. Just think of me as your guy fighting for your interests.
