I am not new to Daily Kos. I have been watching and reading every recced diary that comes along. I have never commented nor have I ever thought of posting a diary.
What I have witnessed over the time I've been on this site, is that you all are easily swayed by the slightest bit of information that comes along showing a hint of President Obama possibly not agreeing to policies or cuts that WE here on Kos think he should.
Today's diary (which I have no idea how to reference) about the secret memo from the last negotiations during the deficit talks, where President Obama was supposedly willing to cut social security, medicare, etc., has all of you guys up in a panic as usual.
I find it ridiculous that you guys turn on the President at the drop of a dime if you get even a hint of the President not doing what you think he should be doing. There doesn't seem to be much loyalty on this site.
I know this diary is up on all the technical stuff that you normally see in a diary. As I said before, I don't have a clue how to reference the other diary I mentioned, but I do know that I've had enough of your wavering support of the President.
Update #1 - As I said from the beginning, I'm not a diarist and I certainly am not a writer. I don't know the right language or protocol on this site. I apologize for the "all caps" as I see that's offensive. I apologize for the general terms such as "all". I apologize for not knowing how to do tags and referencing other dairies. So, I take the hit for those things. I was hoping you all would look pass my entry-level diary mis-steps. The overall point of this diary was just to say that we don't have to agree on everything that the President is doing, but that we shouldn't think that he is going to always give us 100% of what we are seeking from him. He is only human. He has to deal with the hand that he is dealt, in the best way possible. I truly believe he does have our best interest in mind when he makes those hard choices. I expected the backlash from this diary, so I take the hits as they come. As a novice, I will learn as time goes on how to appropriately compose a diary so that I don't use general terms and lump everyone together. Thanks for the feedback.
Update #2 - I've read all the comments, and I understand all the reactions I've gotten. I didn't mean to suggest that anyone should just follow President Obama on everything that he does. My point was that some diaries seem to be "exploding heads", just like I've seen people mention the reaction of those on the "redstate" site. We are we showing when we post diaries like those where we immediately criticize the President. Are we showing the "redstate" people how unglued we become at the slightest thing our President does. To me, that shows them that we aren't as supportive of him as we make believe. You see, I went over to "redstate" after the election because I wanted to see their "heads explode" or to see their comments where they were "freaking out". My perception of them was just as I suspect their perception would be of us if they came to this site periodically and see the type of blogs over here.
