  1. Yo Barry,
    We don’t agree on many things but we can agree on politicians selling out to get elected. Cater to their base to win the nomination and then change tunes.
    I’m not surprised you are pissed at Obama – in fact I’m glad that you are following things closely enough to get angry at “your” nominee.
    Most Americans still sit idly by and vote the party line, regardless of what actually goes on. I doubt that very many people will even know about this Obama vote.
    I don’t know how to fix this – the only thing that comes to mind is term limits so the bastards can only have a fixed amount of time to set up their crooked nest eggs.
    How was the Europe trip? Pics?

  3. It sounds like they did this in lieu of letting the law expire. Maybe that doesn’t make the decision any less shitty, but I don’t think it should be perceived as quite such a stab in the back to loyalists. Just keep in mind, you’re deluding yourself if you think there’s ever gonna be a candidate for anything who makes decisions you agree with 100% of the time. (That’s not to say you shouldn’t be upset about this sort of thing, but reacting with crushing disillusionment seems to me an indication of naivete on one’s own part…)

  4. Oh, my crushing disillusionment has been around much longer than that. 🙂 Obama is big on the “there’s still hope” message, but after this, any hope I was starting to build for him went right out the window. I know it’s impossible for a candidate to be 100% in tune with everybody’s views, but knowing that he voted for something like this doesn’t give me a lot of confidence in his principles…

  5. Look at the morons running Canada (and gunning to run Canada)and it will make you feel much better. My MP stood up in our house of commons and called Nelson Mandela “a communist and a terrorist” – and this baffoon not only represents me in the house of commons… but the IDIOTS in my riding re-elected him… twice!
    I think corruption and stupidity in politics is a global phenomenon – misery enjoys company right??
