Do you remember how you spent the last year of your life making a big f^&*ing deal about Mitt Romney’s hijinks in prep school? How about how mean he was to the family dog?
And what did you do to make Obama feel uncomfortable? Nothing. That’s right. You did nothing. No, that’s not quite right. You did WORSE than nothing because you wouldn’t even entertain challenging the party hierarchy.
So, now you’re mad that the dude is in the White House and he’s ready to cut the net out from under you after all those decades of Social Security, Medicare and surplus payments all we tail end babyboomers made “because we are too menny”. NOW, you’re livid.
I hope you finally understand what has been pissing ME off since 2008 when it was perfectly clear that the Democrats were electing an MBA Bonus Class Corporate Ladder Climbing Stooge as a president.
There was no talking to you people but now, now that the actuality is upon you, now, you’re mad. Not only are you mad but you actually seem surprised that they are using the sequester as an excuse to cut our social insurance policies. It’s like they LIED to you and you didn’t even realize it.
Really, Digby? Did you really not see this coming? At all?? I find that hard to believe but maybe it’s because I’ve actually worked in a ruthless, cutthroat corporate environment and I’ve seen that there’s nothing they won’t do to enhance shareholder value at your expense. They’ll ruin their own brand and productivity just to make sure they have no obligation to you. Obama reeks of that environment.
You carried his water and now he’s going to screw you and there’s not a damn thing you can do about it unless you get on the horn with your congressperson (count yourself lucky if you don’t live in a gerrymandered district like I do) and complain. It’s got to be loud and vociferous and constant until he/she gets the point.
Then, you need to get the band back together on the left and stop looking down your noses at those of us who saw this coming five years ago. There needs to be a solid voting bloc to push back against this either in Tea Party format or as a separate entity.
You can get mad or you can get even.
I’d get even.
