The more I think about it, the more I really wonder if Obama could lose in 2012. Consider what was supposed to be making people support him and his party in 2008:
[ ] Lower the seas [ ] Stop the "bailouts" [ ] Free the GTMO prisoners [ ] End the fighting in Iraq [ ] End the fighting Afghanistan [ ] Don't fly regular Predator missions in Pakistan [ ] End the "Bush Tax Cuts" [ ] Free people from the "tyranny" of having to buy medical insurance [ ] Allow openly gay people to serve in the military [ ] Replace a Supreme Court justice opposed to Casey [ ] Cap and Trade [ ] End the secret ballot for union certification [ ] World respect at venues like Copenhagen, Olympics, World Cup [ ] Lower unemployment [ ] Reduce dependence on foreign oil
But then what have they achieved?
[X] Freebies for wealthy fatcats at Planned Parenthood [X] Freebies for wealthy fatcats at UAW [X] Sweetheart deal for medical insurance companies [X] Defeat of DeMint earmark ban [X] Put America's first open race bigoted woman on the Supreme Court [X] Put the King of Queens on the Supreme Court [X] Minimum wage increase [X] Minimum wage increase waiver for places where the Pelosi family has business interests
What am I missing?
