commentary on Politics and a little bit of everything else

‘Professional left’ says Obama’s needling strategy won’t work…..

The Left and Progressives are not happy with this administration…

To tell ya the truth…

There was no way they can get most of what they want….

American Democratic President’s are pragmatist’s…

In a country that is center- right…

Not coming out to vote will only make things worst…

The professional left has been critical of Obama throughout his administration, accusing the president of moving to the middle and ceding on key issues near and dear to Democratic causes like the public health insurance option in the healthcare debate.

That steady drumbeat of criticism led Gibbs to vent his frustration to The Hill last August.

Obama has since acknowledged the frustration being voiced by liberal commentators on TV on a nightly basis, but he has challenged Democrats not to let that frustration keep them at home on Election Day.

“They say that there is an ‘enthusiasm gap,’ and that the same Republicans and the same policies that left our economy in a shambles and the middle class struggling year after year — that those folks might all ride back into power,” Obama told a rally in Washington earlier this month. “That’s the conventional wisdom in Washington.”

But Obama, in an interview with Rolling Stone magazine, has also made clear that he is frustrated with Democrats’ criticisms that his administration has not done enough.

“It is inexcusable for any Democrat or progressive right now to stand on the sidelines in this midterm election,” Obama said in the interview.

He added: “The idea that we’ve got a lack of enthusiasm in the Democratic base, that people are sitting on their hands complaining, is just irresponsible. Everybody out there has to be thinking about what’s at stake in this election.”

But liberals say it is too late for Obama to cajole voters into fighting for him when they say he has not done enough to fight for them and their ideals..


In the end….. is this upcoming election going to be about a Democratic internal fight… instead of the Republican’s?
