The problem with Obama and the new Democratic party is that it doesn’t stand for real Democrats. It is yet another strange amalgamation of voters whose self interest was pandered to. In many ways, it is no different than the Republican party of gilded capitalists, religious crazies and neocons. This new Democratic party is made up of young people, libertarians and pretentious status conscious liberals. There is a nasty streak of cynicism in it as well, as if it’s just so outre to consider helping the poor or abiding by any core Democratic principles. The new Democratic party is just too cool for that. They can write some lengthy, detached policy paper about it and pay some lip service but really, the American demographic has evolved and those people on the brink of insolvency, well, they are the Neanderthals that didn’t make the cut. Moving on.
Paul Krugman at the New York Times points out the hysteria of HDS that infected the media and made it possible for Obama and his minions to demonize Hillary to the point of madness:
In any case, this is what is on my mind this morning. I will no longer be a part of the Obama Party. Its goals are not mine. And, I am sickened by the HDS and misogyny that has been perpetrated by Obama and Axelrove and the Obama cult bloggers against the woman who could be the best President since FDR.
And as for you disingenuous Obama supporters who supposedly want Hillary for VP? Please. We know the score. You simply want to blame Obama’s inevitable loss on her. Guess what? It’s nagahapin. Obama is too immature and arrogant to offer, and Hillary is too smart to accept. Sorry, New Plutocrats, you are going to have to live with the fact that without Hillary to kick around, Obama has nothing to offer. Obama is unelectable. Start preparing yourselves now.
Party Unity, My Ass.
