For the very first time since listening and watching Thom since 2005, I am really disappointed. He stated that the reason Obama rolled over on the debt deal was because the outcry from citizens wasn't enough. Come on!!!!! Thom himself quoted several nationwide polls that CLEARLY showed more than 85% of citizens demanded that the rich and corporations start paying their fair share!!!!! There were demonstrations and rallies all over the country (they weren't covered by MSM of course -- in fact CNN ran YEAR OLD FOOTAGE OF TEA PARTY RALLIES). The White House and congressional call lines WERE OVERWHELMED and thousands of people couldn't even get through. Same thing with their emails. SHORT OF BLOOD RUNNING IN THE STREETS, WHAT MORE DO YOU EXPECT OF PEOPLE??????
We elected Obama to do what he said he would do in his campaign. Now Thom says it's up to us to barrage Obama every time he's supposed to do the right then or blame ourselves???????? Obama is not stupid. He's done the WRONG thing again and again. He's a corporatist and a trickle down believer. He betrayed us all. We count on you to speak truth, NOT be an apologist for Obama.
And please stop cutting off people who are trying to calmly make their point. It's one thing if there is some rightwing nutjob screaming at you on the phone, quite another when it's someone trying to speak their thoughts in a reasonable way.
It's extremely telling to find out that Obama's mentor was LIEBERMAN????? Who indeed just called for cutting social security to fund bigger wars against the Islamists. OMG WE ARE IN SUCH DEEP, DEEP TROUBLE.
