How to criticize Obama

Here's what I want to hear: Sound, critical analysis of how Obama is failing, how he represents interests that are not compatable with people struggling to make a living and be free, and what we can do about it politically. Here's what I do not want to hear: Banal, conspiratorial, implicitly nationalist garbage about Obama being a Muslim. Won't engage that argument, regardless of what form it comes in, and think those who make it = FAIL.

As we move forward to gain independence from the corporate political parties, let's be careful about those walking around with such perfect nonsense in their heads. When times are hard and people are scared, we have a tendency to believe some pretty absurd things.
