Obama Fires Back at "Professional Left"

Apparently fed up with criticisms received, Obama’s Press Secretary Robert Gibbs blasted liberals yesterday, August 10 saying that Obama would never do anything the left sees as “good enough.”

Calling them the “Professional Left” Gibbs said, “I hear these people saying he’s like George Bush. Those people ought to be drug tested. I mean, it’s crazy.”

He continued on saying, “They will be satisfied when we have Canadian healthcare and we’ve eliminated the Pentagon. That’s not reality. They wouldn’t be satisfied if Dennis Kucinich was president.”

Maybe people from all across the political spectrum wouldn’t be so upset with him if he hadn’t promised everything to everybody to get elected.

Then again, maybe people just woke up and can see that he just doesn’t know what he is doing.

In Taking Teacher Bail Out $$, Kulongoski Admits Obama Economy Isn’t Improving

In a burst of refreshing and rare political honesty, Oregon’s Governor actually said out loud something he’s been loathe to do: Admit the Obama economy sucks and it isn’t getting better anytime soon.
The President has hit the campaign trail to tout his “recovery summer,” and sent out Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner to sell the so called “recovery.” The Governor apparently doesn’t buy the hype. In electing to take the public employee union “stimulus” (teacher bail out) money (here), this is what he said,

“Given the performance of the national economy during the past few months, we should anticipate further revenue losses until a recovery clearly takes hold”

In other words, there isn’t a recovery going on now and spending this money is only a one shot deal.
As an aside, I wonder what will happen with this latest bail out. Companies have to pay back their bail outs and many have. What do the teachers unions do? Oh, wait, that’s right, they re elect Democrats.
