Lieberman is a petty, traitorous, vindictive back-stabbing little gnome. But let’s not forget that it was Barack Obama who had secret meetings with the corporate owners of the hospitals, the doctors’ lobbies, and the drug dealers way back in March of this year, and he promised them, in secret meetings from which the public was excluded, that he would not pass single-payer, or do anything else to cut into the obscene medical industry profits. Obama promised it.
Obama is also the person who called the top Congressional Democrats as soon as he took office and told them to leave Lieberman in his position as a leader in the Democratic party, even though Lieberman had campaigned for McCain and Palin, and Lieberman was not a Democrat. Why is Obama giving cover to Lieberman, that despicable little creep?
And remember further, that Rahm Emanuel is Wall Street’s favorite politician, also providing cover for Lieberman, also cutting side deals with the Medical Industry and selling out the public. Why is Rahm Emanuel in the white house at all? He has no loyalty to the public, didn’t even support Obama, and was a Clinton insider. What exactly does he bring that is Change?
Lieberman is despicable. But what does that make Obama? Lieberman didn’t force Obama to betray the public, give away everything in healthcare. Obama was protecting future Democratic “contributions” from the medical industry. It’s a corrupt racket. Obama is the point man on this play. He needs to be held responsible for his sell-out of the public. All the Democrats do. I would suggest people start by changing their registration to independent. Maybe that would get somebody’s attention.

Mike the cartoonist is confused,too. Obama wasn’t delivering much…see http://www.blackagendareport.com “Candy without the wrapper”. Obama stole the moment…but it’s not over…the fight for singlepayer will go on.
