Glad to see you are finally noticing. It's Not just the GOP that thinks he is Failing as a leader anymore.

ROFLMAO, your an idiot dude. Acting like the GOP? So in your mind any Liberal who is not totally Left wing at all turns, is "acting like the GOP"

Fucking my god dude. Grow up.

Because the GOP pushes infrastructure spending to stimulate the economy, right?
Geezus some people are so sunk in ideology they cannot look beyond their noses.

But this Taibbi character doesn't like him because he's too conservative. I read a couple of Taibbi's pieces. He'd make Josef Stalin look like Rush Limbaugh

Mostly true, but Liberals put Obama in office and he's not governing like a Liberal. Don't you want your right-wing nuts to govern like right-wing nuts when you vote them into office? Liberals just wanted what they thought they were voting for - but they ain't gettin' it.

Yes he is. He just isn't governing as radical as you like as quickly as youd like.

It feels good when they're smooth talking and blowing sweet nothings in your ear...then you wake up to reality.

The article is pretty simple. Taibbi is saying that in practice Obama has governed in a manner more fiscally conservative than Taibbi wants and more than Taibbi had previously expected. I don't think Obama is acting like the GOP, but obviously some people do think exactly that. That is hardly an indication that Obama is in trouble. Note that Taibbi did not accuse Obama of a lack of leadership, or give any hint that he wasn't supporting him in 2012. He just expressed disappointment.

In all fairness, our resident native-American didn't say that. The socialist Rolling Stone blogger Matt Taibbi did, not that our own Crazy Horse isn't about as far left

I suppose. I bitched about GWB, but Taibbi is to Liberals what anti government militias are to Conservatism.The man is a totally off the wall nut case.

Gotta love scaring the elders, the ill and having double standards!

"Now, I realize there are some in my party who donÂ’t think we should make any changes at all to Medicare and Medicaid, and I understand their concerns," Obama said during his speech Thursday. "But hereÂ’s the truth. Millions of Americans rely on Medicare in their retirement. And millions more will do so in the future. They pay for this benefit during their working years. They earn it. But with an aging population and rising health care costs, we are spending too fast to sustain the program. And if we donÂ’t gradually reform the system while protecting current beneficiaries, it wonÂ’t be there when future retirees need it. We have to reform Medicare to strengthen it. "

Whatever happened to 'finding all the fraud' in Medicare?
Why is it that people are forced on Medicare when they have private insurance?

Here's the Matt Taibbi Progessives know and love from March 9, 2005 52 FUNNIEST THINGS ABOUT THE UPCOMING DEATH OF THE POPE
by Matt Taibbi

52.Pope pisses himself just before the end; gets all over nurse.

51.After death, saggy, furry tits of dead Pope begin inexorable process of melting away into nothingness, like coldest of Sno-cones under faintest of suns.

50.Pope survives just long enough to be acquired by Isiah Thomas for Stephon Marbury, 2005 #1 pick and cash considerations. "We feel like we've made ourselves younger and more competitive," Thomas says.
