"I expect the "better Obama than that" mantra will be embraced by many on the left. I will have some more to say on this in a few days, with some focus on Bill Fletcher Jr. and Carl Davidson's article on why they are voting for Obama"

Recently read the, in my view, thoroughly smarmy editorial by Freedom Road (http://www.fightbacknews.org/2012/8/12/2012-presidential-election-midst-economic-hard-times-hope-people-s-struggles-change-street). 

It's always been a wonder to me how thoroughly ignorant revolutionary socialists (not to mention people with PhDs) can be; standing (tacit or otherwise) with Assad against the Syrian movement, equivocating or voting for Obama, and calling for an end to imperialism all in one breath. Lenin's characterization of the infantile disorder of ultra-leftism is, and has been, amazingly prophetic.
