Retweeted by Rob RuminskiAnyone still want to talk about how this wasn't a fundamental problem with the Democratic candidate? speeches and fuck Sorkin and fuck Bartlett and fuck white liberals and then go fuck them all again. This shit is a cancer of the left....squandered the momentum of his first turn as he tried to play nice with the Repubs. "But he gave such beautiful speeches!" Fuck speeches....get to work. This is how we ended up with an ineffectual Obama presidency that veered towards neoliberalism from the get go, and...Get off the high horse of your pious, sanctimonious, wet-towel white liberalism, realise that nobody is coming to fucking save you, and... @ruminski school boards, as sheriffs, as fucking dog catcher.While you're bingeing on your jerkoff fantasies of a grand leader with perfect Hollywood dialogue, Conservatives are out getting elected...This is why Democrats do terrible in midterms. This is why Dems have been losing state governments for years.This liberal fantasy that some benevolent father/mother figure is going to sweep in and solve everything is dangerous bullshit.
