    I totally understand the left being furious with Obama. I'm pretty furious with Obama. But what can I do? Not vote and let someone even worse get in? Sometimes I feel like I should just leave this shit-ass country and call it a day. I don't like what hating this many people does to me.

    Continue to vote for the lesser of two evils, recognize that change is generally incremental, and that a sustained run of Democratic president are far more likely to pull the country leftward than a single president

    value pragmatic change over a futile hope that any single administration can achieve a set of nebulous hard left ideas in 4 years

    It's not like there are going to be many people willing to go and get them.

    It's hard enough getting there without trying to carry a corpse that has probably frozen in an inconvenient pose back down again.

    Generally they can't find them anyway, since people often die during a storm or something like that and by the time it's safe to retrieve the bodies they're lost.

    I'm not sure I get the Obama hate. I get the Obama frustration, but not the hate.

    From where I see it, the current gist is that this is a terrible deal, which I would agree with, and the instinct is to say he should have pushed for more. Perhaps, but I have to wonder: How much more could he have gotten? My observation of the Republican party has been a party that has followed obstructionism so devotely they'd only vote for a blue policy if it was part of a veeeeeeeeeery slightly purplish-red package, which I think this bill is equivalent to.

    So I ask from a position of ignorance: What else could he do?

    There's always a primary challenge. Although I doubt that would happen either.
    There's the fact that an incumbent has like, never lost the primary of his party. Like, ever.

    like, there's a certain amount of insulation because of the way the state is run and you essentially never run into a real conservative, so you don't have to deal with them.

    That is.. that is special.

    Racism against non-existent, non-human races is disturbing to you.

    Y'know, mostly my hatred of all non-human races in fantasy games/novels/whatnot is that they tend to always been just one feature of humanity magnified by a billion.

    This makes for incredibly shit and uninteresting characters.

    Oh look, it's a dwarf with an inferiority complex. Guess what? He grew up in a mine and loves rocks. Yay. You are fucking original.

    Oh look, it's an elf. He likes to prance about and generally be a completely one dimensional fairy. Yay.

    Oh look, it's a werewolf. He struggles against his base and animalistic nature on a daily basis, while trying to fit in to normal human society.

    Well lets see. Dwarves in WoW don't really have an inferiority complex. They're too busy trying to discover their origins, re-unite with their dark iron brethern whilst constantly being thwarted by the horde, twilight sects of dark iron, and having to help the Gnomes, you know, get over losing their entire fucking home.

    The Elves in WoW aren't really froo froo flitty flighty.

    Supported the senate more, supported the idea of attacking the filibuster. Use his platform to explain what the pubs were doing...

    He has been an awful communicator and leader. He gave a great tax cut to everyone, but because it was given in every paycheck as opposed to a shiny single check in the mail and it was NEVER properly explained to the people, he is able to be sold as a person bad on taxes.

    And he is not fighting above the message the media has painted at all.
