Dear Mr.President,The Plight of Millions is Not "Sanctimonious", it's Devastating....
"Pray for the Dead, but Fight Like Hell For the Living." Mother Jones
So The Tax Deal was supposedly Worked Out and is a quote on quote "Compromise". And President Obama came out to the podium and gave a Presser on it. He seemed tired and out of sorts, but he also seemed Forgetful. He seemed to forget WHO put him in office and Who worked on his campaign and helped bring him to the podium. And he seems to have forgotten that Millions of those same hardworking people have been losing Homes, Jobs and Money over the past two years in a way that is frightening and heart rending. That people have tried to be strong, taking whatever Job they can and working tirelessly to keep food on the table and heat on and roof over head. No One needs to be called "Sanctimonious because they are tired of watching DC Democrats and the White House Ignore Our Plight. We don't want Compromises, we want SOMEONE ...Our Leader we worked to get Elected to FIGHT for us. There are millions of Americans already out of work, 59 Million who have NO Healthcare,and atleast 8 million have Lost homes,and 4 Million more are about to lose their UnEmployment Benefits. We Need WPA Programs and Plans, not Lectures on accepting Greed and Cruelty inflicted by Heartless Soulless Republicans.
Please do watch his presser. This is not the Barrack Obama I saw speak in person in 2008. And also listen to Our Progressive Dems speak out about this "Compromise". Bernie Sanders, Patrick Leahy and Sherrod Brown and Anthony Weiner all had thoughtful concerned comments.
PS: Mr.President I also am feeling "Sanctimonious" about a Few Other Things: Gitmo, Holder and the Lack of Torture and Illegal War Investigations , Holder and Wiki Prosecution, Bush's Homeland Security Agenda STILL in place with absurd TSA Rules and No Fly Lists, Terror WatchLists of Normal Citizens, The HCR "Compromises" that leave Millions With Nothing until 2014 or worse....And the List is growing by the day. You Better Take a LONG look in the Mirror.
