President Obama’s decision to cave on the Bush tax cuts hasn’t made him any friends, especially on the Left. Ever since announcing his plan to extend tax cuts for all Americans, he has acted like a spoiled child having a temper tantrum. If you listened to his rhetoric today, you saw that Michelle isn’t the only one in the White House who has a problem with bitterness.
I went over to the Huffington Post to check out how the loons on the Left are reacting to this recent news. Here’s a sample of their anger:
"Howard Dean said that President Obama made a big mistake.
I disagree, Dr. Dean, I now believe it is we, the voters, who made the big mistake.
Howard Dean please challenge Pres Obama in 2012 Primary.
This is Obama's 'read my lips' moment, I can't see him recovering from it. Coming on the heals of his support of watered health care and financial reform he's showed who's side he's really on.
No public option, no repeal of DADT, no repeal of the tax cuts, no ending of the wars, looks like a 100% failure.
Obama = failure
What a lap-dog, milk-toast, gutless, loser!!
And causes the left far more stress than Bush ever did.
Meaning...primary Obama. Get the money ball rolling for a candidate prepared to make history by challenging and defeating the party leader for the party's nomination.
This is a sharp turning point for the nation—not as profound as America's embrace of torture, but almost as big. We're sunk. Obama's going to be left with his wife, kids and Oprah in his corner; for the rest of us, this is the end of the road.
I just heard Obama say that tax cuts are the Republicans' holy grail. Wrong. This is the means to an end. The holy grail is the death of Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security. I thought the president had more insight and leadership ability than he's demonstrated. Now we see the real problem: he's a Republican. Howard Dean in '12!
I waited in line almost two hours to vote for Obama in 2008... what a huge disappointment he turned out to be."
