  •  God. Where were you in the 90s ? (15+ / 0-)

    When Barack Obama went to work in poor black neighborhoods  , and after going to Harvard Law School, continued his activism ( registering voters in poor neighborhoods, etc.)

    For decades now, the man has been much more about action in the trenches than about writing on blogs.

    Not to dismiss the great work of the people you mentioned, but Barack Obama didn't need MoveOn or Howard Dean to learn about America's problems...

    Another note: Have you watched President Obama's last rally in DesMoines on Nov. 5th ?  Or, better, his visit to Chicago headquarters on NOv. 7th ?  The way he becomes so emotional when he talks about how it's the power of the people that will change the world ? If you haven't watched the videos, I strongly suggest you do.

    His heart is in the right place. He is simply patient and wants a peaceful, smooth transformation instead of a full-blown revolution.  

    •  Who cares if BO was (0+ / 0-)

      a community organizer?

      Bottom line?  Now that I think about it more, he was not even remotely part of the changing conversation.  

      If anything, he had to be dragged kicking and screaming to start supporting anything that liberals wanted.

      And, no, I don't watch the guy.  I recall being very impressed with him at his DNC speech when Kerry ran.  However, it was just bs, much like most of his campaign was when he ran for his first term.

      And the only reason BO went all populist-y for this campaign was because the message resonated.

      He's great at speechifying.  Action?  Not so much.
