Rallying The Base

Stuff like this makes you really want to get out the vote, doesn't it?
PRESIDENT OBAMA, at a DNC event last night in Greenwich, Conn.: "[A]fter being in this job for two years, I have never been more optimistic about America. I am optimistic partly because we did some really tough things that aren't always popular but were the right things to do. Š Democrats, just congenitally, tend to get -- to see the glass as half empty. (Laughter.) If we get an historic health care bill passed -- oh, well, the public option wasn't there. If you get the financial reform bill passed -- then, well, I don't know about this particularly derivatives rule, I'm not sure that I'm satisfied with that. And gosh, we haven't yet brought about world peace and -- (laughter.) I thought that was going to happen quicker. (Laughter.) You know who you are. (Laughter.)
Making fun of people for being upset that there wasn't a public option? That position was so far left and out of the mainstream that someone name Barack Obama used it as a campaign promise. Crazy unrealistic hippies! I'm also pretty sure that no one thought you were gonna bring world peace when you campaigned on escalating an un-winnable war.

But more importantly, what point is there in demeaning your already despondent supporters? Pretty sure it won't make them work harder or give more money.


  1. Yeah, and making fun of the Nobel committee should also go over well (remember he received a "prize" of sorts from them, having something to do with one of those things. HINT - it's not the economy)

  2. I have just added this post to scholarships for women
