What’s a liberal supposed to do?
That’s the big question these days, as we head into 2012. By any measure, Barack Obama has not lived up to the dreams or expectations liberals had of him in 2008. In many ways, in fact, he’s disappointed us.
So – what’s a liberal supposed to do?
MoveOn.org said they’re not even sure they’re going to support him. Ralph Nader’s looking for a candidate to run against him. James Carville said it’s time to panic.
So – what’s a liberal supposed to do? There’s only one answer. And I say this is a liberal and a big Obama supporter who hasn’t hesitated to criticize him over the last three years.
What’s a liberal supposed to do? Stop whining and get to work! It’s insane to suggest that, because we’re so disappointed in Obama, we should sit on our hands or stay home and refuse to vote.
Seriously, think of the alternative. As frustrated as we may be with Obama, do we really think we’d be better off – do we really think the country would be better off – with Mitt Romney? Or Rick Perry?
What’s a liberal supposed to do? Work your ass off for Barack Obama.
That’s my parting shot for today.
