A Sense of Abandonment

A salient point from Paul Krugman's blog on Obama's proposed spending freeze:

And it’s a betrayal of everything Obama’s supporters thought they were working for. Just like that, Obama has embraced and validated the Republican world-view — and more specifically, he has embraced the policy ideas of the man he defeated in 2008. A correspondent writes, “I feel like an idiot for supporting this guy.”

Me, too.

Now I get to say it ... "told yous so" ...

Just joking ... make that half joking. I think he's more inept than dishonest but he's certainly not adverse to doing whatever it takes to save his political ass (lean further to the right, for instance).

Still, let's not let Obama's ineptitude fog the bigger issue facing the middle class--his party is as useless as he was ... and so long as we go back and forth (Reps to Dems to Reps to Dems, etc.), we'll be jerking our own chains.

I'd love to argue each of the points you made in your comment, but I can't. When you're right, you're right.
