    Who Is The Professional Left?

    Who Is The Professional Left?

    Robert Gibbs used the term the “Professional Left” in attacking left-wing critics of Obama.

    I like the term. It carries with it a sense that opposition to Obama from the left does not primarily come from bloggers in underwear sitting in their parents’ basements.

    Some 1st Tier names certainly come to mind: Markos Moulitsas of DailyKos, Arianna Huffington of Huffington Post, and Jane Hamsher of Firedoglake have created blog communities which have savaged Obama from the left. Glenn Greenwald also has been on a mission particularly on civil liberties issues, and John Aravosis of AmericaBlog on gay rights issues.

    But who else?

    Please don’t mention Media Matters and Think Progress; they are pro-Obama Democratic Party tools which will sink to almost any level to defend the brand.

    So who else constitutes the Professional Left? (And if you want, you can categorize them by 1st, 2nd or 3rd Tier status)

    IMO, "Professional Left" are the left-wing people and organizations which derive their livelihood / existence from their leftist politics.; International ANSWER; SEIU; and the NAACP all fit the bill. There are more.

    The Professional Left is like a spouse abuser… it/they both support and denigrate Obama at the same time. He is their guy… they work to "nudge him" into doing all of what they want.

    Thus, in my view, the Professional Left encompasses all the usual suspects.

    Welcome Back To Pottersville. The webmaster may be a bit too much of a potty mouth to be taken seriously though.
    BlueGirl – a bit more sophisticated than the above but still absolutely nuts. Closer to the "professional left" than Welcome Back.
