Hawai`i progressives dump Obama: “How soon can he be impeached?”

Big 2004 Kucinich supporters who switched to Obama in 2008, some Hawai`i Progressive Democrats are already calling for Barack Obama’s impeachment. The call is in response to hints that Obama would cut Social Security and Medicare spending—both of which are critical to the funding of the Hawai`i ‘progressive’ lifestyle.

Writing at, Larry Geller of Kaua`i asks: “How soon can he be impeached?” The self-styled Progressive Geller links to an article titled “Obama hints at entitlements changes” which suggests that Obama might raise the retirement age a couple years, index payments to inflation, cut benefits or allow benefits based on need.

Geller is closely tied to Kaua`i anti-Superferry protesters who blocked ferry service to the island in 2007--making Kaua`i an international laughingstock.

Geller contrasts Obama’s post-election policy ideas to a Obama campaign website pledge to “protect social security” and “protect and strengthen Medicare.” Pushing impeachment, Geller argues:

Let's start the process before he gets in office.
His Cabinet makes him look like he's going to govern like a smart "Bush" with some color. This prospective Blair frickin' appointment is outrageous. I submit to you right now, Obama is a FAKE.
And I'm getting tired of him talking too slow. That was nice during the campaign, but given his record already, I don't have patience for that s*** anymore. He needs to frickin' kick it up a notch and speak a little faster, instead of forming a bunch of slow weasel words.
If this guy thinks he can deceive the American public, he's got another thing comin'. We've had enough of this s*** with Bush.

Remember: Hawai`i Progressive Democrats aren’t just “progressive” -- they are also “enlightened” and “conscious”.  So they naturally get "tired of him talking too slow."  It also means that when they say Obama is “Bush with some color” there is nothing racist about it.
