Ted Rall: It’s increasingly evident that Obama should resign

The LEFT is seeing it!!!!!!!!!!!! This was one of the MONSTER chorus boys!!!!!!!!!

MIAMI — We expected broken promises. But the gap between the soaring expectations that accompanied Barack Obama’s inauguration and his wretched performance is the broadest such chasm in recent historical memory. This guy makes Bill Clinton look like a paragon of integrity and follow-through.

From health care to torture to the economy to war, Obama has reneged on pledges real and implied. So timid and so owned is he that he trembles in fear of offending, of all things, the government of Turkey. Obama has officially reneged on his campaign promise to acknowledge the Armenian genocide. When a president doesn’t have the nerve to annoy the Turks, why does he bother to show up for work in the morning?

Oh Sweet Loving Jesus that’s good! What I just put up was only the tiniest piece of an absolutely superb rant from the LEFT!!!!!!!!!!

Oh MY GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Bwahahahahahahahahaha!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And from Richard Fernandez @ The Belmont Club comes this:

One wonders what principles the eminent cartoonist is referring to. Was it because Mr. Rall was promised something for nothing and is now surprised that there’s no free lunch. Was it surprise that someone who could be dishonest to others would be less than honest to him?  Was it shock at his own judgement, because Rall proceeds, without realizing it, to impugn his own discernment along with the character of the candidate he voted for. “Obama is cute. He is charming. But there is something rotten inside him. Unlike the Republicans who backed George W. Bush, I won’t follow a terrible leader just because I voted for him. Obama has revealed himself. He is a monster, and he should remove himself from power.”

OMG!!!!!!!!!! Top quote is what they’re learning, bottom quote is what we knew.

Okay, okay. One more tidbit:

Rall has been “mugged by reality”. But its sobering to realize that every proof that Rall was wrong to support Obama will necessarily be another increment of public pain; job loss, fear or uncertainty.

EXCELLENT UPDATE: Aggie sent me this about/from Glenn Greenwald.

    My God son, go easy on the exclamation marks. You’ll do yourself an injury.

    Holy hell….A PIG JUST FLEW PAST MY WINDOW!!!!!

    Seriously, though, I thought Rall was irrelevant since his stupid attack on Pat Tillman, and his racist cartoons. Oh, I did notice he has NO FREAKIN’ CLUE as to how an investigation into a crime starts. You have a crime….then clues….then a suspect or two…then an arrest. Dude should watch Law and Order, or Spongebob.

    He sounds like a whiny girl who just found out that her beautiful, shiny diamond is nothing but cheap glass.

    Yes, I am smiling, as a matter of fact… 😉

    You do a disservice to Sasquatches everywhere…

    And I was being diplomatic, and censoring myself. Ladies never use the “C” word.

    Well in any case it’s good to see that some of the left are opening their eyes, altough i still believe that it’s too late and option B is close at hand.

    As do I brother, as do I.

    Oh, feel absolutely free to scream as loudly and profanely as you wish.

    There is still one basic problem with Rall. His objection is to broken promises. He still hasn’t realized the underlying problems attached to those policies, nor has he looked at Barak the Great’s non (some would say anti) American orientation. Still it’s a start, I guess we ought to be grateful for the progress.

    It’s a start.
