“I’m disillusioned by the people who are disillusioned by Obama, quite honestly, I am,” he said on ABC News Now’s “Popcorn with Peter Travers” before today’s release of “The Ides of March.”Democrats eat their own. Democrats find singular issues and go, ‘Well, I didn’t get everything I wanted.’ I’m a firm believer in sticking by and sticking up for the people whom you’ve elected.
“If he was a Republican running, because Republicans are better at this,” Clooney continued, “they’d be selling him as the guy who stopped 400,000 jobs a month from leaving the country. They’d be selling him as the guy who saved the auto-industry. If they had the beliefs, they’d be selling him as the guy who got rid of ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,’ who got Osama bin Laden. You could be selling this as a very successful three years.”
I’m more than disillusioned by these people. I’m sick and tired of them. When you have so-called progressives arguing that Bill Clinton has a better record on LGBT issues than President Obama does, there’s a serious problem. When you have progressives calling for President Obama’s impeachment based on nothing but the opinions of Glenn Greenwald, there’s a serious problem.
At this point, the Professional Left and their sycophantic gripers inspire more loathing in me than right-wingers.
