There was a post to which I really wanted to reply. This post had a video of President Obama

debunking Fox 'news' lies in a speech he gave in Indiana. But when I hit the 'reply' key, I found I had been blocked from that group by some mysterious Obama Group host.

Now, I am in disagreement with Obama's trade policies. Virulent disagreement in fact, and I have been vocal about my disagreement with so-called 'free' trade and the horrible ramifications it has had on the economy.

I have been just as vocal in saying Obama has done some really good stuff policy wise. Because he has. Obama has had to push the river because he came into office in a hole where we had just done the TARP bailout and he had to do ARRA and ACA because we were losing 750K jobs a month.

Yes, under Obama this economy has more or less come back. It is not Obama's fault that wages of middle class workers are still stagnating. Yet it is true due to neoliberal economic philosophies being propagated, flogged in fact, by virtually all the corporate owned politicians and media.

But Obama has done a good job and he's a good guy. I have also repeatedly pointed out that he is a moral man, a good husband and father, and that his administration hasn't had ANY scandals to even speak of. He is a good president and I feel reassured with him in office, unlike I felt when W was in there.

But I've been blocked from the Obama room.

SO I'M GONNA MAKE MY POST HERE AND IN GENERAL DISCUSSION. HERE IT IS:

When the general election begins after the primaries are over, the three most powerful voices on the side of sanity will be Barack Obama, Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, who I believe will all campaign tirelessly for Clinton.

So....gosh. That was horrible, awful, terrible wasn't it???
