Can't Be Satisfied
The press secretary dismissed the “professional left” in terms very similar to those used by their opponents on the ideological right, saying, “They will be satisfied when we have Canadian healthcare and we’ve eliminated the Pentagon. That’s not reality.”Yeah, we all want to abolish the armed forces and rely on flower power to protect us. He's got our number, all right. F*cking idiot.
Of those who complain that Obama caved to centrists on issues such as healthcare reform, Gibbs said: “They wouldn’t be satisfied if Dennis Kucinich was president.”
GG says it best: In 18 short months, we went from "hold me accountable" to "get drug tested." This, the Breitbart punking, the extension of Bush-Cheney wars and civil liberties degradations—boy, is there an ugly pattern here. I guess they're figuring that whoever rises to the top of the Republican heap in 2012 will be so scary that we'll all come running back to the Hope and Change administration out of necessity. "He's Not Sarah Palin" doesn't strike me as a very inspiring campaign slogan, but hey, if they finally want to stop pretending that they're anything more than the lesser of two evils, I guess we can call it a victory for honesty.
