I Shared My Thoughts with Organizing For America

December 15th, 2010 · No Comments

Today I was favored with a message from Organizing for America (OFA). They asked me to listen to a video clip from the President explaining the deal he made with the Republicans. The President spent a lot of time explaining the process he’s gone through and the constraints he’s under, and what it was possible for him to do under the circumstances. He presented himself as being in a politically weak position in which he could only make an unpalatable compromise in order to “get something done” for the American people and those among us who are really hurting economically.

The OFA message asked me to share my thoughts after I listened to the President. So, I did this and also thought I would share them with you. Here they are.

I’m really not interested in process. I’m interested in results. Your results are bad on jobs and the economy. They’re bad on finreg and on getting rid of very large too big to fail banks with hidden toxic assets. They’re bad on credit card reform. They’re terrible on health care reform They’re terrible on torture and accountability, and ending the wars. They’re terrible on mortgage foreclosure fraud. And now they’re terrible on tax cuts for the wealthy. In light of all these results, I have only one thing to say to you at this point.

“You have sat too long here for any good you have been doing. Depart, I say, and let us have done with you. In the name of God, go!”

That is, Obama Resign!
