The problem I have with things like this implying that “true liberals” won’t support Obama because of drones and other shit like that is
Who the fuck SHOULD we support?
Romney? Cos he sure as shit isn’t more liberal than Obama. And he’s not going to have any more amenable positions on any of that.
Or are we expected to throw our support on a “true” liberal third party like the Greens or something? Because quite frankly, I’m not prepared to be so idealistic as to pretend that any third party has a snowball’s chances in hell of being elected in this country.
So when people say Obama isn’t a “”true”” liberal I say of COURSE HE ISN’T. But he’s also the best we’ve got, sad fact though it may be… No I’m not pleased with everything he’s done. But I’m a hell of a lot more optimistic about America’s future overall with a second Obama administration than with a third Bush administration.
