If Barack Obama truly cared about endorsing a progressive economic leader, or even a leader of colour just like him, he could have chosen Jagmeet Singh of the left-wing New Democratic Party. But he didn’t.

Obama wasn’t a progressive, he represented progress.  A endorsement of the NDP would make no sense at all for him or any Democrat president.

Yeah, progress. Progress of the kind we're all too familiar with.

He deported staggering numbers of immigrants, let Wall Street criminals off the hook, failed to take on (and now proudly boasts of support for) the fossil fuel industry, sold over $100 billion in arms to the brutal Saudi government, killed American citizens with drones (and then made sickening jokes about it), killed lots more non-American citizens with drones (including Yemenis going to a wedding) and then misled the public about it, promised ‘the most transparent administration ever’ and then was ‘worse than Nixon’ in his paranoia about leakers, pushed a market-friendly health care plan based on conservative premises instead of aiming for single-payer, and showered Israel with both public support and military aid even as it systematically violated the human rights of Palestinians.

I mean, he was (half) black. So there's that.

Anyone see “lock him up” with their morning coffee. I would’ve hoped as Canadians we would have a little more class then to stoop to that shit.  Even Sheer looked embarrassed.

Man, what is the world coming to? I heard the mincing pimp even told one of his MP's to lie to the RCMP. (I hope she gets voted in)

Well there's ( suprizingly) no dedicated thread so I'd thought I'd put this here.

The PC party shouldn't have chosen a leader who only had six months working experience.

Mincing pimp?  That's a  new one.  

I feel a little bad that I didn't vote Liberal since I did promise I would if they legalized the weed, but I think the mincing pimp will forgive me.

Keeping the neocons out of office is always a good result for our country.
