Saturday Vids: Not Disappointed By President Obama

I don’t generally like to get too overtly political on this blog, but I definitely think this video is worth taking a look at no matter what your political persuasion. Recently, a lot of my leftist friends have been voicing their disappointment with Obama – they felt he promised things that weren’t delivered. I just think in general it’s important to give credit where credit’s due. Take from it what you will, but I appreciate Jake Lamar’s defense of Obama.

    I ditto all that is in this video. I don’t think there is a better realistic choice.
    (though I’d liketo note that I would love to vote for the gay R candidate. But I think it would be a waste as I seem to be the only one who knows about him. + how many americans would really vote for him considering all the gay hate in this country? It would probably be a waste.)

    Nvm. Now I’m dissapointed. That law Obama passed so that supposed terrorists could be held without trial, indefinately… Yeah, huge disapointment there.

    I am a little disappointed, especially with the recession that is going on and how low job employment is. Not very happy about that! Also the thing Ariel said too.

    I’m wholly dissapointed but the president is to progeny of the system, not the progenitor. President Obama has gone farther to the right, not just with the recent NDAA legislation, but the bills cited as ‘achievements’ were betrayals of his base and also non in fact progressive. Of the 30 million that got healthcare 10 million still cannot afford it. The list goes on as to the various social ills Obama hasn’t cured. Now, moreover this kind of half-hearted optimism should be a gut-check to all of us. Are we really progressive if we are going to simply go vote next November for a President who has wholly protected the financial sector and time after time again disappointed us? If we are to do anything this year we should be building our own power, not simply saying “I’m not disappointed”, in fact we should say we are disillusioned, angry and we want to create something new, for ourselves, and by ourselves.
