We won. Yay. Now how do we keep Obama from selling out the social contract?

Of course I’m delighted Romney lost, and lost so decisively everywhere. And I’m beside myself with joy that most of the Republican shitheads either lost their races (Akin, etc.) or their asses (Rove).
We are now facing a throughly bogus financial crisis worked out as a “compromise” between Boner and Obama a while back. Lots and lots of ignorant media pressure is building about this faux deadline. And there’s no evidence that Obama will not sacrifice Social Security, Medicare, food stamps, ADC, and whatever else the financial establishment wants, just to say he lowered taxes a bit. He blew it on the healthcare issue when he had a better chance, a bigger majority and lots more momentum than he has now.
We’ll have to see if he has the balls to stand up on the issues. Don’t forget – Goldman Sachs was Romney’s biggest campaign contributor; they were Obama’s second-largest campaign contributor. I mean, I’m happy he won, too. But let’s not forget who gave him the bread. It wasn’t us little folks with our pissy $10 donations. He raised almost a billion dollars. By Washington standards, he doesn’t owe us a thing. And Goldman Sachs and the rest of Obama’s heavyweight 1% “supporters” are no different from Sherman Adelson or the Koch Bros – there’s only one thing they care about. They don’t support; they invest.
Several people are wary of Obama’s rush to acommodate the plutocracy.
