It is funny how neo-cons (I hate the term by the way) who protray Barrack Obama as the savior of the left. They also love to point out the skin color of the bi-racial Obama, as if that would make a difference in his job performance. They also like to say that Obama lacks the experience to be President. Bunk.
First of all, true progressives in the primaries will support one more left than Obama. If he wins the Democratic nomination then he will get the support of most progressives, but not all of us.I have long advovated the GOP and Democrats are almost the same. As sung by The Who, "new boss, same as the old boss."
Progressives who voiced opposition to the invasion of Iraq (I refuse to call it a war), since day 1 are the true leftists. Those Johnny (and Jennie) come-latelies who now cry out were tools of the Commander-in-Chief. They helped to hoodwink the American public about this nonsense which has only put money into the pockets of the ultra-rich. These same ultra-rich care not one atom about the lives of the men and women killed in Iraq.
History will not be kind to the man in the Oval Office. It will be proven he was a poor leader who sacraficed the future of America both in the lives of young Americans and the country's treasury. He has been a disgrace.
