12.12.10 More Fury

It’ s absolutely nauseating to read the Washington Post’s Sunday Opinion page today, filled with praise for Obama’s newly found strong leadership.  What evidence is cited for Obama’s fortitude?  His willingness to stand up to . . . (drum roll, please) . . . the Left!

You’ve got it: in a world where the Right has taken us to war under false pretenses, caused the near complete collapse of our financial system, purposely created the ever-widening gap between the ultra-wealthy and everyone else — in that world, the real boogeyman is identified as being those of us who want a just, sustainable world.  So, the president, who has shown no fortitude at all vis-a-vis the GOP gets mainstream pundit love by putting us in our place.
