Paul Rosenberg at Open Left:
It's now clear that we're looking at a failed presidency. Regardless of whatever else happens, even if he wins re-relection, Obama has utterly squandered the promise he held out for us all. He empowers the haters and evildoers of the world by only opposing them academically, while giving way to them in every practical sense.
And the longer we refuse to see this obvious fact, the more complicit we are in betraying his promise as well.
The obituaries have been written. Obama has failed us all! Quit with this melodramatic crap because what's failing is the "professional left." Want to know why no one is energized to vote in November? This nonsense. Sip your free trade latte, simmer down and get over yourself. It is time to get out, mobilize and vote. It is not time to write anything on any wall, not even the public bathroom where this belongs.
