And now a word from the Netroots …

Obama was brought in for one reason and one reason only – to put a better, even subaltern face on imperialism, martial adventurism, and the economic decline of the vast majority. He was brought in for his astounding rhetorical ability – to package war escalation and economic rollbacks and to sell them as peace and reforms. He was brought in so that the Republican boosters could call him a socialist and thereby provide right cover for his government as it handed over the federal treasury in bailouts and war bucks. Obama was brought in precisely because his rhetoric was so far at odds with reality that it would take a little over four years for the front-row Democratic boosters to see events as they happened, rather than as they were narrated by him and his media mouthpieces.

Instead of asking, as netplants are doing, for the real Democrats to stand up, we netroots ask them, especially their leader Barrack Obama, to please sit down. Please sit down and stop pretending to be our allies. Please sit down and stop misleading millions with phony rhetoric and lies. Please sit down so that the millions can be disabused of your illusions at last. Please stop flying your false flags of progress and reform. Please sit down so that we can begin in earnest the work of building a real party in opposition to you and the masters whom you serve so well.
