Obama and Biden to ungrateful supporters: quit whining and buck up - it could be worse

There’s an inspiring message. 

All you people who we fooled back in 2008:

We haven’t done much of what you thought we were going to do.  When we’ve followed through on campaign promises we’ve pretty much gutted what we’ve promised because we’re wimps and decided early on that something is better than nothing.  We’ve done things you’d have sworn we wouldn’t do in opposing civil liberties and done nothing about other civil liberties and to rub your noses in it, followed through with Bush Administration positions on a host of other issues.

Wall Street, the auto companies and the banks are up and running, bonuses growing, and the rest of you will be happy to know that some economist has pronounced that the recession ended last year.  Why aren’t you happy?

We aren’t the GOP!  So delude yourselves, think up some reason to go to the polls and talk us up with your friends, send us some money.

Geez people, the President just went to church for the first time in six months to prove he’s not a Muslim.  He and the whole family took communion.  Work with us here!

If the GOP takes over Congress, yes, you’ll get pretty much the same thing.  But they won’t even talk about caring about you and we do that each and every day.  That’s got to count for something!

The last election proved to me, beyond any shadow of a doubt, that the electoral process is useless as an avenue of change.

It makes no difference who wins. You get to choose which way the news will be spun, and that's about it.

Ditto Thomas' comment.

I'm one of those people tempted to just stay home this time. Why bother?
