If I may, and I took the liberty of numbering your points for easier reference, hope you don't take umbrage :<quoted text>
Well the good Rev. disagrees with you.
1. Obama had the chance to explain to our American citizenry about Liberation Theology in the Black Churches which Wright comes from and how the media took his comments out of context.
2. I know it is trivial but after all these years Obama still has not invited Wright at the White House for a beer.
3. Truth is Obama threw all liberal/progressives under the bus just as Clinton did before him.
4. I cannot comprehend how most Democrats gave Clinton a pass and how most Blacks are giving Obama a pass.
Obamacare is a Conservative Republican health plan which not one Republican voted for.
5. There is little difference between Reagan, the Bush's, Clinton and Obama on big ticket items.
6. Wall Street always wins.
Rev. Wright says Obama 'threw me under the bus'
1. I think he did explain it, see Poppo's post. As to "Liberatin Theology", I don't agree with it but then I'm not black. Ŧhat's why I understand it;
2. I'm sure he'd love to invite him for a beer, but as you know, "perception is everything" . Still, he's in his second term, he should say "what the hell, I'm inviting the Rev for a beer at the White House;
3. He did not throw every liberal under the bus. He threw everyone who was in his way under the bus, conservative or liberal be damned. But not every liberal, quite a few of them around. But as Poppo said, he's a politician. I say he did not become president by always being nice and not walking all over his friends. If he hadn't, he'd still be working the ghettos. No one said he was perfect. Jimmy Carter was a nice guy, hardly ever threw anyone under the bus.Šidn't cater to Wall Street and the military-industrial complex. No second term for him;
4. Of course it's mostly a conservative health care plan. It's called compromise, no choice. Had Obama dug in his heels like Hillary Clinton did in 1993, there would be no health care plan at all. Obama wanted a Canadian or better yet European fully-funded universal health plan, but he knew he wasn't gonna get it, not even if he had had a huge majority in the house and senate. all repubs and most dems have sold out to private hospitals and insurance companies. No chance. He does care about blacks, but hey, can't demonstrate it too too much, as there are tea partyers and birthers that'll jump on him as soon as he shows a bit of sympathy for the little guy;
5. It does always win, true, but Democrats always manage to leave crumbs for the middle class. Not even crumbs from the Republicans. ALL social legislation since George Washington, except for the emancipation declaration, were introduced and passed by democrats.
And finally I agree with you, voting for the "least bad" is not ideal, but hey, over here, and in the USA, it's all we've got.
