Dear John: Wake up and take that walk of shame

From NPR:

President Obama took his licks from progressives who are meeting in Minneapolis at the Netroots Nation Convention, the annual gathering of liberal bloggers and other social media activists.

The panel that drew one of the biggest crowds at Netroots Nation so far was called “What To Do When The President’s Just Not That Into You.”

“It’s like the president’s not our boyfriend anymore,” Joan McCarter, an editor at the Daily Kos website, said during the discussion.

John Aravosis, another panelist, who blogs about gay-rights issues on AMERICAblog, reminisced about the heady early days of the left’s relationship with Obama.

“I honest to God thought I was voting for these guys and that it was going to be the first time in my lifetime that I’m finally in a position of power, where I could be working with the White House on a regular basis, saying, ‘OK what could we do this year on gay stuff?’ Wouldn’t it be cool, oh, ‘Don’t ask, don’t tell,’ this is great.’ “

You have my sympathy, Mr. Aravosis. We’ve all had the unfortunate experience of getting infatuated with the wrong person. But a booty call is not a marriage proposal, and it don’t mean a thing if you ain’t got that ring.

It’s time for you to face facts: You got played.

Here’s what you need to do:

1. Print out the following words:


2. Tape them up where you will see them (on your mirror, monitor, dashboard, etc)

3. Read the words aloud to yourself at least 100 times every day.

4. Stop making a fool of yourself.

5. Apologize to Hillary Clinton

  1. Getting them all to act as if the Clinton’s were racists should have been a clue. And worse, if they actually believed that, they should step away from the microphone, hide in their basement, and never blog or talk politics again.

    Beautiful post, myiq. Beautiful. I remember when John went over to the dark side and started swilling the kool-aid. It will take a long time in de-tox before he really gets it.

    I peeked at NN11’s schedule for today ….. There’s a segment called 40 Under 40 which will highlight their Rising Political Stars.

    I think they should look to their Governors for star power in 2016 since it seems they’re settling for 4 more years of Obama 😦

    If you dedicate your existence to being likable, however, and if you adopt whatever cool persona is necessary to make it happen, it suggests that you’ve despaired of being loved for who you really are. And if you succeed in manipulating other people into liking you, it will be hard not to feel, at some level, contempt for those people, because they’ve fallen for your shtick.

    From a poster on FB quoting Jonathan Franzen, who I don’t read but reminded me of somebody.

  6. They need to apologize to us too – half of the party which they called racist, bitter, uneducated and poor. They need to apologize to women, gays and everyone in whose faces they got in 2008 because they were told to at Camp Obama.

      But they won’t, because they couldn’t possibly need help next year. So they go on being insulting, alienating, and stupid. It’s their fate. I doubt most of the followers even know that Arianna and Markos were Republican once. Sad spectacle.

    You know, there are just so many stories now. Apparenly, Jackass complimented Debbie Wasserman Schultz as the new head of the DNC by saying she has a “cute” smile. Because that’s the major qualification for the head of your party.

    “I honest to God thought I was voting for these guys and that it was going to be the first time in my lifetime that I’m finally in a position of power…”

    Well that’s the first problem right there. We all noticed your desire for power in the way you bullied and demeaned Hillary supporters. Politics is not supposed to be a quest for power, it’s suppose to be about serving the people, all of the people. The Nutroots decided women who don’t support Obama aren’t really people, Dems who have questions about Obama aren’t people, Republicans aren’t people. Because you morons were on a quest for power and arrogant enough to believe you had the right to dehumanize and abuse entire groups of people, the Dem party is now fractured and some of us will never be returning.

    They don’t seem to realize that he was NEVER into them – it’s not like he had a record of working for anyone – it was all words – he is the politician’s politician. They had to demonize “experience” in order to find a way to minimize Hillary, and to gloss over his years as a Chicago politico. No, bots, he wasn’t a “fresh face” – he was a middle aged man who had never been a public servant, despite his years in public service.

    I think you’re too generous. IMO, Avarosis was lying then and he’s lying now. He never ‘believed’ in Obama. He doesn’t have a progressive bone in his body, any more than Markos does. The Netroots are Neo-Bolshevik totalitarian wannabe scumbags. They’re just disappointed ‘The Revolution’ fizzled out before they got to commit genocide on the Tea Party — with rusty guillotines, much more to their taste than those anal retentive Nazi gas chambers. With gas, they can’t lick up the blood afterwards.

      Don’t hold back – tell us what you really think.

      Wow. Obviously, Kos is just a hack. He was as right wing as they come when he was younger. He’s still bloodthirsty, but his tastes have turned to eating Republicans. A lot of “liberals” are former conservatives who were converted on the ideology but seem to take the more activist roles and end up overshadowing the hippie segment of the cause.

    Its so hard to believe that these folks are still spewing to each other in some organized fashion. Digby? Is it still there? And what of “but he didn’t vote for the war”. Any mention of that at this shindig? Gay rights? Is that all their complaining about? Nada mention of lobbyists over, under and inside the Whitehouse? Wars til the cows come home? Environmental disasters being papered over or should I mention the pristine beaches that the Obama’s have chosen to vacation at all year down in the Gulf of Mexico.
    And did anyone ever wonder where all the weapons are coming from that are being used in these military adventures> I mean, the Afganistanis don”t have food, clothing or shelter to speak of but they sure do have some military weaponry. And finally, Guantanamo. Yep, they’re still there guys.
    I was so lucky to have seen Obama at one of his very first rallys in a megachurch in Georgia. Thats when I got to see the hugs and kisses between Obama and Donnie (McClurkin that is) and hear Obama speak about the importance of religion in all our lives. Thats when I ran for the hills. Too bad nobody else was there.

  12. glennmcgahee says:

    I just gotta add one more thing.I hold Obama personally responsible for the fruitcake that we got as Governor down here in Florida. Not only did Obama not campaign vigorously for his opponent (she was a woman after all), but since Obamacare is sucking money from Medicare to cover their asses, our gov has a wonderfule excuse to force every single senior who is a citizen of this state to go into one of the Gov’s managed care plans where each senior will be assigned a dollar amount and the care company, after taking their cut, will have that dollar amount to cover the senior for the year. Better hope that sunshine is a healer and if you’re sick, don’t get sicker because the profit comes first. This is the governor who ripped millions of dollars from Medicare, lost his job because of it, plead the 5th over 70 times, and lives in our mansion with his ill gotten profits in tact.

    This sounds like it could be Hillary singing to the Obots. 🙂
