SAN JOSE — Liberal activists and organizational leaders at the 2013 Netroots Nation conference bemoaned the “neo con” influence on U.S. foreign policy while also lambasting President Barack Obama, whose foreign policy approach has offended many progressive backers.
When historians look back at the presidency of Barack Obama, they will not begin with his campaign announcement in May 2007. They will not start with his election to the Senate in 2004 or with his celebrated speech to the Democratic National Convention that year. Instead, these historians will identify the beginning of the Obama phenomenon in the antiwar speech he delivered in Chicago, on Oct. 2, 2002.
One of the Nation magazine’s newest hires, Lee Fang, is a far-left Democratic operative with a history of publishing error-riddled and misleading reports.
One cannot help noticing the struggle between Barack Obama’s natural instincts and the serene and benevolent persona he projects to the world. Obama may be talented at self-fashioning, but he cannot maintain his public face constantly. The mask sometimes slips.
Reporters and editors at such news outlets as the New York Times and the Huffington Post donated to President Barack Obama’s re-election effort, the Daily Caller reports.
Democratic Massachusetts Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren’s speech at a symposium on critical race theory—where other speakers were advocating for corporate reparations, criticizing the concept of U.S. citizenship, accusing America of operating under a system of “apartheid,” and pointing out the misogynistic undertones of wearing makeup—may not help her connect with independent Massachusetts voters, experts say.
Liberal activists have successfully driven out moderate Democrats over the healthcare bill.
