Frustrated liberals want more from Obama

What More could they possibly want ??

Since Obama took office, they U.S. Treasury has been successfully looted and ransacked.

They have spent to the max and now have allowed the Federal Reserve to become the largest holder of U.S. debt !!

With revenues way down and the wild binge spending way way UP, where do they think the money will come from anyway ?

Pretty soon, nobody will buy the U.S. Treasuries that represent the debt.

Obama's two major legislations (ObamaCare and Frank-Dodd) are under scrutiny and may not be able to deliver as promised because the money won't be there, and because of the fact that both are allowing non-elected bureaucrats to decide all the "rules" and policies !!!!

I would be frustrated too

Where do the "Liberals" think the money will come from ???

(AP) Frustrated liberals want more from Obama
Associated Press
They are trying to be hopeful, but the Democratic Party's most passionate voters are struggling to hide their frustration with President Barack Obama.

Republicans attack the president as a big-government liberal. Many liberals meeting Thursday at Netroots Nation _ it describes the annual convention as "a giant family reunion for the left" _ argue instead that Obama hasn't fought hard enough for progressive priorities on taxes, health care and the economy.

Even more problematic for the president: With the election just five months away, some are threatening not to donate money or time or even vote in November for the man who overwhelmingly ignited their passions and captured their imaginations four years ago.

Now maybe, just maybe, the Netroots Nation is actually very happy and satisfied...

Just look at missing money !

More Votes down the drain ?

It doesn't matter! There is nobody, including Ron Paul unfortunately, that is going to be able to change our debt situation without a bonafide revolution. To close our budget gap in the next 10-15 years you'd have to do away with medicare, medicaid, social security OR have no defense budget... Romney, Obama, George Washington himself, good luck with that.

We're upset with Obama because instead of helping the poor which the rich helped to create more of, he helped the rich when they didn't really need or deserve it, nice to tell citizens you messed up it's no ones fault but your own fix it yourself or drown but then say that banks and corporations who willfully engaged in risky behavior and crashed the economy because of it were deserving of trillions of dollars. Yeah how Liberal of him. We're upset because instead of getting out of these wars that serve Capitalist interest we're getting deeper. We're upset because he bailed on environmental issues, he named a Monsanto Rat as head of the FDA. We're upset because he's not Liberal, he's further right than Bush was and paving the way for fascism.

I heartily disagree! Obama is not paving the way for fascism!

Perhaps you missed the memo: Fascism is already well established....

We're not really near where Mussolini was but there's definitely signs emerging.

The Fascist regime created a corporatist economic system in 1925 with creation of the Palazzo Vidioni Pact, in which the Italian employers' association Confindustria and Fascist trade unions agreed to recognize each other as the sole representatives of Italy's employers and employees, excluding non-Fascist trade unions.[151] The Fascist regime first created a Ministry of Corporations that organized the Italian economy into 22 sectoral corporations, banned workers' strikes and lock-outs, and in 1927 created the Charter of Labour, which established workers' rights and duties and created labour tribunals to arbitrate employer-employee disputes.[151] In practice, the sectoral corporations exercised little independence and were largely controlled by the regime, and employee organizations were rarely led by employees themselves but instead by appointed Fascist party members.[151]

We want a lot more.

We want a president who fights as opposed to one who caves at the slightest sign of resistance. We want single-payer, nationolized healthcare. We want big corporations held responsible for their actions.

We don't want major corporations to hide their profits in the Cayman islands, I don't care if they're GE or Koch Industries, I want them to pay their taxes. We want millionaires and billionaires and hedge fund managers to pay a higher percentage of their paycheck than the people they employ.

We want more progressive taxation and less flat and regressive taxes. That's how we pay for it.

We want more jobs, not just giving rich people more money, we want federal jobs programs, union or not. We want to work for a government that works for its people. We want equality for all and not allow bigots to hide behind 'religious freedom'.

Level the wealth gap and the nation will prosper.

More what? Fascism? When he gets voted back into office, he'll give them more than they could ever have hoped for.
