Hey, it’s better than Joan Walsh’s favorite term: Obamalovers
Keep your eye on Firedoglake, people. That ship is sinking fast. Jane Hamsher is suffering stage 5 Obama Derangement Syndrome. It’s so bad that she is now ignoring what Democratic aides have reported regarding Obama’s meeting with Cantor, and is sucking the milk from Cantor’s teat:
For the record I don’t think it’s a big deal if Obama has to take sole responsibility for raising the debt limit. But he does.
It undermines his intention to run in 2012 as the “fiscally responsible” guy who closed the deficit, and that’s why he is cussing mad. Well, that and the fact that he has to undergo ritual humiliation at the hands of the GOP every 2 months to get what he wants.
The irony is that the Obamabots are so out of touch with who Obama is and what he wants they don’t realize that by cheering for the McConnell deal, and his prowess in making McConnell “blink,” it amounts to twisting the knife for him. It makes it impossible for him to reject the deal the end — which empowers the GOP to hold out.
Cantor offered a temporary extension three times last night, and by both Democratic and GOP accounts, that’s what made Obama snap. He wouldn’t be rejecting it “even if it brings my presidency down,” and taking his case to the American people, if he thought he had scored some big victory.
You gotta feel sorry for the guy. His most ardent supporters are the dumbest motherfuckers in the world, and they don’t realize he thinks they are digging his political grave.
At this point, Jane Hamsher is a parody of herself. She spews whatever brain jizz happens to be coagulating in her mind directly into the faces of her sycophants, and they lap that shit up like their only dream in life is to play the role of Hamsher PermaFluffer. I mean, it’s downright comical.
Obama raises 86 million bucks much to the chagrin of firebaggers everywhere and he’s got rock solid support from his base, and Hamsher obviously cannot stand it. (For fuck’s sake, how will she ever help Ron Paul get elected with the Obama Juggernaut running roughshod over everything in its path?)
In short, Obama is driving Hamsher fucking nuts, and it’s really fun to watch.
Jane, you are a mindless twit. You are wrong about everything, like, ALL THE TIME. Your blog posts are where facts go to die. And now, having no recourse, you are parroting Tea Party talking points. Obama is exploiting rightwing fears of the CRAY CRAY NEGRO, knowing that the Teabagger-mind is an addled one indeed. And you fell for it. And now you have taken sides with Cantor against liberals.
But that’s not unusual, for you, is it? You are quite familiar with working with Tea Party activists to bring down this President.
Hear that sound, Jane? That’s the sound of your own irrelevancy.
You better send out another fundraising email, sweetcakes. I’m sure there’s a drooling idiot somewhere who has a buffalo nickel for ya.cross-posted]
