Isn't It Ironic...

..that the "Candidate of the People" is the one who is going to try to buy the election, flooding the airwaves (he's already got the press in his pocket) and outspending McCain by deciding not to accept public money and hence a spending limit?

...that the party that truly, fervently believes that it is the party of the blue-collar voter and the middle class is instead the party who sucks up to the fat cats of Wall Street with the explicit aim of being bought and paid for?

...that the party that truly, fervently believes that the best way to help those in need, to help "the little guy", is government help, is the same party that has blocked cheap energy (causing prices to rise and hitting the poorest the hardest), that has blocked tort reform aimed at preventing abuse of the legal system, which results in health costs being so high that millions can't afford proper insurance?

...that many of his supporters, those who believe in the message of Martin Luther King, of the day to come where people will be judged on their character and not on the color of their skin, believe that they have a right to the office not because of who Obama is, not because of his character, but because of the color of his skin?

...that the party who believes itself to be so progressive and forward-looking is, instead, reactionary and obsessed with the past?

Oh, isn't it ironic.

The first point is the worst hypocrisy: see this.

The key quote is:

Obama committed publicly to pursuing an agreement with McCain that would involve both of them taking public dollars, only to abandon it less than two weeks after he became the presumptive Democratic nominee, with Clinton's exit.

Commitment, then abandonment. This appears to be a recurring meme. I wonder how George Soros will react when his bought candidate - Obama - abandons him when it's no longer opportune? How will MoveOn react when he doesn't toe their line?

Of course, he doesn't care: it's all about getting elected. Nothing more, nothing less: the problem is, we don't know who the fuck he is.

And the Democrats are doing their best to pull a PT Barnum on the American people.

Isn't it ironic...
