Vermont Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders Says Obama Should Face A Democrat “Progressive” Primary Challenger
Vermont’s socialist US Senator says that President Barack Obama should face a “Progressive” primary challenger.
If the Far LEFT and Progressives had any credibility, they would put their primary challenger where their mouth is. In a recent CNN poll, is was shown that Obama is losing traction with with the LEFT. Even though Sanders is not one of the most influential Democrat Senators, many on the LEFT are starting to become disenchanted with Obama. Although, if Obama ever did face a primary challenge in 2012 it would destroy the Democrat party and any of Obama’s chances at a reelection. Many of us are hoping that the LEFT has the guts and conviction to do so.

Barack Obama is in serious 2012 reelection trouble. The RIGHT will come out in record numbers against Obama, all polls show that he has lost the Independents and now the LEFT is losing that loving feeling. I would hardly expect a primary challenge against Obama; however, I do expect much lesser numbers to come out and vote for “The One” as he has gone from “Hope & Change” to a complete failure as President.
GOP House Speaker John Boehner stated that Obama is worried about his next election and from the looks of his job approval poll numbers, Obamacare and how he is handling the economy, he should be.Obama is even politicizing the debt limit negotiations by trying to extend it past next years election so that it wont be a campaign issue. The fact of the matter is, it is just the kind of issue that should be.
Boehner also criticized President Obama for recommending a debt ceiling deal be timed to last beyond the next election season.
“The president’s worried about his next election, but my God, shouldn’t we be worried about the country?” Boehner said. “I’m not worried about the next election. I told the president months ago: Forget about the next election!”
The administration though has indicated that the debt ceiling should be raised at least through 2012, in order to take politics out of the negotiation.
Just curious, if Progressive Democrats and Liberals voted against Obama is a primary challenge, would that make them racists?
