A Message To My Obama Supporting Friends
It has been no secret on this blog that I am a supporter of Hillary Clinton’s for that I do not apologize. I believe she is the best candidate and I believe she would make the best Presdend. Again no apologies on any of that. But I can count and understand that this is a real uphill fight but let me just say one thing about and to Obama supporters.
Look, I really don't mind at all if Obama wins the nomination, and if he does I would hope he wins big too the general election and all. What's tiring is the talk that he's different, especially the hyperbolic messianic crap that his supporters shamelessly use to hype Obama. The pretending that he's light and Clinton is dark while his votes are not any different than Clinton's; the pretending that he is a progressive leader in the Senate when he is not; the pretending that he's the oracle of change when he's merely mouthing words that David Axelrod recycled from Deval Patrick's winning MA gubernatorial campaign in 2006; and the pretending that he's some sort of vessel that shares your personal values which if its true means your soul succumbs to good marketing.
Support the guy, vote for him, argue about his electability. Just don't try to fake others, whom don't support him currently, into believing that he exemplifies a transcendent change. He isn’t. He is a part of the ‘system” and the change if any he brings will come from within it, so don’t delude yourselves. If he is the Democratic nominee we will all rally to him but the Childrens Defense Fund he is not.
