Yet Another Let Down From Obama

Bob Herbert on lame debater Obama:

"...the time for excuses is over. The president had no right to show up for a debate unprepared and offer an expectant nation an embarrassingly half-hearted performance. Progressive leaders, who represent Obama's strongest and most faithful supporters, have an obligation to convey that message in the strongest possible terms. The president let his people down. And if he's capable of doing that in an election that is clearly so important, it means he's capable of doing it again if he wins a second term."

But Herbert acknowledges hat this is classic Obama...unwilling to fight for social justice...and too willing to seek compromise with the right wing nut cases. What hope have we?
