Steve, Everybody Will Get Right On That….
Steve Hildebrand of The Huffington Post telling Progressives to STFU!
A Message to Obama’s Progressive Critics:
I could go on and on. The point I’m making here is that our new president, the Congress and all Americans must come together to solve these problems. This is not a time for the left wing of our Party to draw conclusions about the Cabinet and White House appointments that President-Elect Obama is making. Some believe the appointments generally aren’t progressive enough. Having worked with former Senator Obama for the last two years, I can tell you, that isn’t the way he thinks and it’s not likely the way he will lead. The problems I mentioned above and the many I didn’t, suggest that our president surround himself with the most qualified people to address these challenges. After all, he was elected to be the president of all the people – not just those on the left.
As a liberal member of our Party, I hope and expect our new president to address those issues that will benefit the vast majority of Americans first and foremost. That’s his job. Over time, there will be many, many issues that come before him. But first let’s get our economy moving, bring our troops home safely, fix health care, end climate change and restore our place in the world. What a great president Barack Obama will be if he can work with Congress and the American people to make great strides in these very difficult times.
That is all fine and dandy, Stevo. I am sure the Obots will be good little soldiers, keep drinking the kool-aid and shut their traps.
Me? Not so much… I don’t support The One, and even if I did, there would be nothing I could do about the FUBAR situation that is going to occur with the Democratic Congress pushing his agenda and their own.
