Comments: Let's get back to reality

Or he sent a roll to the Guardian with a note that read: "Thank you for your support. There is space provided to list your concerns on the following sheets".

The lack of enthusiasm of the pwoggies will count for a little something. The billions of dollars of rightwing propaganda Big Lie will count for something more. Add a bit of racial animosity, let stew for a while ---- meet the new "Boss", same as the old "Boss." (I might be wrong, of course. Sometimes I am.)

Who knows if it's good or bad?

If all goes well, there will soon be a definition for "pwoggies" in the Urban Dictionary.

The ONLY ones worth voting for are the ones with viable, workable, SOLUTIONS to the nation's problems. So far that animal ain't showed up on the ballot, IMHO.

Nice one, willf. The White House comment form should be redone along those lines.

Despite the Kos liberals' exaggerated sense of their own importance, I'd say their lack of enthusiasm now matters no more than their ecstatic excess of it did in 2008; Obama won't win or lose based on their mood and he certainly doesn't need their money. And even if none of that were true, the prospect of having an actual vs. an effective Republican in the White House will bring back their sense of urgency just as reliably as the Guardian's "quick emotional reaction" gave way to "reality" months before it could make any imaginable difference.

You should all go to see this Matt Bors comic from last June. It says it ALL.

I thought we were getting an FDR when I voted for him...how wrong can a guy be? And...YES...I'll be voting for him AGAIN.

"I imagine Obama's written down the Guardian's "concerns about his policies" on a roll of toilet paper..."

Pretty much the same way he treats the Constitution and the Bill or Rights.

Look, the anti-slavery Whigs did the same for Zachary Taylor in 1848. The Democrats today look a lot like the Whigs then, and Obama looks a lot like Millard Fillmore.

There appears to be no equivalent in the modern Republican Party of the anti-slavery Democrats of 1848, who founded the Free Soil Party.

Where are the populist ex-Republicans going? The Tea Party was astroturf.
