"... I mean, it's just crazy ...".
Also Sprach Zarathustra.
Thus spake the Superman.
Well, OK, it was just Robert "Giggles" Gibbs, taking a shot at the far left, what he calls 'the Professional Left'.
The blushingly pink university academics. The modern-day Jane Fondas of Hollywood. Today's editions of the Obamanian buddies and activists of yore.
“I hear these people saying he’s like George Bush. Those people ought to be drug tested,” Gibbs said. “I mean, it’s crazy.”
It sure is.
Look here. The majority of Americans, those of us who live in Flyover Country, tend to be middle-of-the-roaders, with a drift, sometimes a pretty good drift, to the right.
We are not extremists toward either end of the spectrum, and most certainly not toward the Left.
The opposition to Obama's - and the "Professional Left's" - socialist agenda is growing, in many cases intensely so. And now Obama is getting slammed by his "friends" on the far left:
The White House, constantly under fire from expected enemies on the right, has been frustrated by nightly attacks on cable news shows catering to the left, where Obama and top lieutenants like Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel have been excoriated for abandoning the public option in healthcare reform; for not moving faster to close the prison at Guantánamo Bay; and for failing, so far, to end the ban on gays serving openly in the military.
Liberals have criticized Obama and his staff for moving to the middle and bargaining on healthcare reform, as well as the financial regulatory overhaul and even the $787 billion economic stimulus package, which some liberals said should have been larger.
Just last week, MSNBC host Rachel Maddow described Obama political adviser David Axelrod as a “human pretzel” for his explanation of the administration’s position on gay marriage. Axelrod had explained that Obama opposes same-sex marriage but favors equal benefits for partners in gay relationships.
Because Obama has chosen to 'rule by fiat', to decree rather than legislate, to appoint czars who don't have to suffer examination in the Senate (not that it would matter with that rubber stamp crowd of clowns), and his puppets in the Congress have fallen in love with the word 'deemed' ... because of all that, and with his supermajority in both houses, Obama has managed to shove through an incredible amount of liberal trash and garbage. If he could have gotten that public option, as one example, or gay marriage, or a closed Guantanamo, don't you think he would have? The political reality is that We the People are shoving back. We should be screaming for the impeachment of some of these morons rather than talking about 'voting them out'. I doubt that impeachment would work, but at least the sentiment would help make the point that We the People are more than simply 'fed up'.
The far left really are detached from reality.
Here ya go:
White House unloads on "Professional Left"
