USA Today has an article entitled “Obama’s liberal base ‘disengaged'”. An excerpt:
“…a growing number of liberal groups and activists say they’ve had enough of Democrats who break their promises or cater to conservatives.
“The liberal wing of the Democratic Party is now in shock,” says longtime Democratic activist-turned-blogger Chris Bowland, 52, of Santa Rosa, Calif. “It’s very clear the party hates us and has no respect for its base.”
Bowland, who this month changed his party registration to the Green Party, says the Democrats are going to pay for it at the polls in November.
“Who is it that shows up to man your phone banks and who goes knocking on your doors? Unions and left-wing activists like me,” he says. But Obama has broken his campaign promises and now, “we’ve had it. I’m done.”
