He's a bull****ter, in other words (or at least too sold-out to warrant my vote, or the vote of any progressive). And yet, he's still better than Romney. That says something about the Right, doesn't it?
Hell, a year ago, the Right Wing couldn't stand Romney. They hated his guts. They ran everybody they had in the party against him. Now, when he wins the nomination, they all fall in line like a bunch of sheep. Who are the tools?
BTW, for progressives out there, Bernie Sanders thinks that as soon as Obama gets reelected he's going to use the lame duck session to sell us out on SS and cave to the Right once again. Be ready for it.
I'm not voting for Obama because of all the reasons listed above and because Obama's record on issues pertaining to civil liberties is worse than that of GW Bush.
For example, note the moves his administration has made in reference to the NDAA: http://www.truthdig.com/report/item/..._now_20120917/
More evidence (in case anyone still needs it) that barryr and his pals are the real tools here.
