That is pretty cynical, but President Obama's biggest mistake was in running for President completely unprepared to work at it. What was he thinking?
An America that was bold enough to vote for him was bold enough to fight. It was time to fight. Eight years… eight fucking years of Bush, Jr. / Cheney and this country was ready for bold change and even radical action. The American people voted for Barack Hussein Obama despite FOX News and we were ready to charge the ramparts only to turn around to find our President wasn’t behind us. President Obama didn’t have our backs. President Obama didn’t arrest anyone or stop anything.
He invited his enemies to the table and they stole the silverware. He invited them back and they wrecked his agenda… yes his agenda… all those promises in 2008 and all that promise.
The Republican Party, Wall Street Bankers, TV Pundits became terrorists in America and President Obama does not see it. The collapse of the World Trade Centers was followed by a more horrific, home grown plan to destroy the America we all grew up in… Middle Class America.
The election of FDR and the new Deal saved this nation from the bad choices the rest of the world was making… Communist Dictatorships or Fascist Dictatorships… America chose to trust its workers and created a Working/Middle Class that was willing and able to defend it against both Fascism and Communism when the time came. Without the New Deal there would have been no American Middle Class to go fight World War Two. And that would have been just fine with some Americans… like Prescott Bush and George Herbert Walker... and did they come back with a vengeance.
Whether Barack Obama likes it or not, he is not the heir of Nixon and Reagan… his support comes from the base that supported FDR, Jack Kennedy and Lyndon Johnson and yes… Bill Clinton. His is the Democratic base… the Working/Middle Class.
After three years in office… we knew what these previous Presidents where about… Nixon was our long, national nightmare and a liar. Reagan, after three years was raising taxes and proving that everything he said after becoming a Republican was a wrong. President Roosevelt, after three years was the savior of the World. Johnson was no Jack Kennedy and was letting his legacy be hi-jacked by the Rightwing… as tough as he seemed to be, he gave up all he believed in… but had the decency to quit. Clinton, well Bill threw back the cover on the vast right wing conspiracy… and guess what… he was right.
But Barack Obama… after three years I do not know who you are or what you stand for, but if actions speak louder than words… you are a Rightwing tool. That kind of behavior by President Johnson led to Democratic politicians deciding they had to challenge him for the Democratic nomination in 1968... which led to LBJ deciding it was best not to run for re-election.
