“Help us Obama Won Kenya Be….you’re our only Hope.”
Remember Shepard Fairey? He’s the one responsible for that drab Obama Socialist Realism Art seen everywhere during Senator Obama’s presidential campaigning.
Fairey’s another one of those disillusioned progressives further to the left of President Obama who put all his poker chips into gambling on the candidate of Hope and Change.
Do you think Obama has lived up to your “Hope” poster?
Not even close.
Obama has had a really tough time, but there have been a lot of things that he’s compromised on that I never would have expected. I mean, drones and domestic spying are the last things I would have thought [he’d support]. I’ve met Obama a few times, and I think Obama’s a quality human being, but I think that he finds himself in a position where your actions are largely dictated by things out of your control. I’m not giving him a pass for not being more courageous, but I do think the entire system needs an overhaul and taking money out of politics would be a really good first step.
Shep’s been disillusioned by the
Hope and Change Rainbows and Unicorns candidate for sometime now, as Skookum had blogged about in 2010.
More erudite observation from the artist formerly known as an Obama sycophant
We also need a public that isn’t so uneducated and complacent. I hate to say Americans are ignorant and lazy, but a lot of them are ignorant and lazy.
Turn off Jon Stewart.
It’s just like what I was talking about with Rebel Music and art. When you live in a place that has a lot of good things that make life easier, it’s easier to take them for granted. But what frustrates me to no end are people who want to blame Obama or blame anything that is something that if they were actually doing anything as simple as voting, it might not be as bad as it is. There’s a lot of finger pointing and very little action and very little research into the dynamics that created the situation that they’re unhappy about.
Um….excuse me, your side actually did that simple act of voting….twice for this President. That was the problem.
As you say: “a lot of finger-pointing and very little action and very little research.”
You should have said nope to the dope after the first 4 years.
Fortunately he’s not on the ballot in 2016; but whoever wins the next election will be spending his time mopping up the mess inherited from the previous 8 years of failed leadership.
