Even the "liberal media" (MSNBC) is getting tired of him. http://firedoglake.com/2010/06/15/l...ents-remarks-on-the-bp-oil-disaster/#comments Some remarks from a liberal blog site : What should the left do? Who should they try to get voted in in 2012. Or should they just stick with Obama, hoping the Republican candidates are once again so bad that people will choose the lesser of two evils? He mentioned peak oil finally but without any plan whatsoever to solve/mitigate it (an American politican will never, ever use the word mitigation anyway for any problem of global scale because that implies that certain problems cannot be fully solved which would shatter the American Disneyland hope n' change n' prayer worldview). Nothing much appears to be happening in regards to climate change. The government's census hiring made a small dent in the unemployment situation but obviously it's not a long-term solution. Does anyone in the US (or abroad) still have faith in a two-party system & in national politics in general? Is the sweeping change necessary even possible? I can understand why people just say "f-it" & flip the channel to some mindless & soothing sitcom. I can see why people gravitate to extreme candidates & worldviews like Libertarianism & Communism. I guess many people have been seeing politicians lie & fail to solve global problems for decades now (I only started really paying attention maybe eight years ago) & it seems like it's just something you have to accept. But that strikes me as a very depressing way to think/respond. Or people see it as bad but as acceptably bad not unacceptably bad. It could be worse. We could be in OMG Somalia! We've been fairly safe (from immediate killers like war, pestilence, etc.) for many decades & it's easy to just /shrug® & accept it as the price of a cushy life. But goddamn it sure doesn't feel good. Any ideas?
