Obama continues the Bush Doctrine

Rachel Maddow nails the War President:



Yep, I expected nothing from Obama, but I'm finally embarrassed that I voted for the guy just because I wanted to vote for a black president.

Dear anti-racists, this is why class matters more than race or gender.

  1. I'm so glad that I did not vote for him. I think Maddow did a good deed with her commentary. . . which will mostly fall on deaf ears.

  3. I'm glad I voted for Nader.
    I never like Obama. It's not like he ever even -sounded- like this guy (WA state 2006 US Senate Race - he was arrested when he showed up at the debate.)

  4. DR, good link.

    And, yeah, I have no regrets for my Nader votes in '96 and 2000, but I do regret my votes for Kerry and Obama, even though I knew they would only disappoint me. The Biparty shifts from slightly right of center to further right of center, and people are desperate for that tiny difference, but, oh, is it tiny.

  5. What would the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. think of you Will?

    "I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the *content* of their *character*."

    OK so maybe the content of McCain's character left something to be desired but weren't there a few other options open to you?

  6. P.S. Just because there are no emoticon smiley-winks in the above comment doesn't mean that I not just poking a bit of fun at U*U Will. :-)

  7. Robin, I voted for Obama because there was a chance he would get us out of Iraq and Afghanistan, but there was no chance in hell McCain would, and no chance in hell anyone else would win. So I don't completely regret my vote. Let's just say the satisfaction of voting for a black guy was smaller than I would've liked.

  8. No surprise here. The only reason I prefered Obama (although I couldn't bring myself to vote for him) to McCain was that I would rather see money flow through the Chicago machine than multinational oil companies. I figured at least this country would get more from the financial trickle down that way.

  9. Don't worry, Will. Lately, this whole season reminds me of the bumper sticker: VOTE OBAMA: Be Disappointed By Someone New!
