To all those under 30 who worked so hard to get this man elected, know this: he just screwed you over. He thinks you're fools. Either the US will go into default because of Obama's cowardice, or you will be paying far far more for far far less because this president has no courage when it counts. He let you down. On the critical issue of America's fiscal crisis, he represents no hope and no change. Just the same old Washington politics he once promised to end.I must say I find this amusing after the many caves/sellouts on the War on Terror(TM), civil liberties, and teh geys -- all of which Sullivan supposedly cares about. But they were all politely excused.
But refuse to cut Social Security and bam! -- the lovefest is over.
DFHs of course were pissed about all those things, plus the corporatist health care bill, the tax cuts for billionaires, offshore drilling, and absurd little panders like the "spending freeze." But for an Obama-worshipper like Sullivan to go this far off the rails is something.
How long before Sullivan starts writing posts titled, "Why Mitch Daniels Matters"?
