Alan Markow at CAIVN details six areas where Obama has failed liberals and progressives, concluding with –
To the liberals who supported Obama, he has sold out in an attempt to quiet the right wing noise machine. But it has all been to no avail. The right’s distaste for all things Obama has only grown, while the left feels abandoned. It’s a recipe for the kind of result that the Democrats can expect in November.
Being a corporatist, Obama has no real disagreement with a corporate agenda, which is something that spans both parties. So perhaps he didn’t sell out as much as he basically agrees with them.
