President Obama has been officially put on notice that the time for equivocation has now past. He must stand up and fight or face rejection and the loss of support from a growing number of liberal and progressive supporters within the base of the Democratic Party. Politico is reporting that a large number of Obama’s ex-staffers and campaign volunteers are threatening to withdraw and will no longer support Obama in his next election cycle unless he reaffirms his full support for the public option in the health care battle. Many of the supporters feel they have sacrificed enough and want to see results. "We quit jobs, we left girlfriends, we put off student loans, we put off a lot in our lives, we dropped out of school," Mike Elk, an Obama campaign field organizer in Pennsylvania, said. And the disappointment doesn’t stop there. Barack Obama's former deputy campaign chairman, Steve Hildebrand, recently took to the podium at Queer San Diego Democratic Club’s Freedom Awards to lambast Obama for his complete failure to keep his commitments to the LGBT community. "The problem is Obama isn’t listening enough," says Hildebrand. "This is my President, this is our President. I love him, I love Michelle, I want him to succeed, but all of us need to put pressure on him and Congress to do the right things. The American people put confidence in the Democrats because they thought we could get things done, and if we fail, they’re not going to give it back." And last but not least, "Daily Kos" founder Markos Moulitsas warned President Obama that the netroots were growing weary of the administration's tepid efforts to deliver the changes that were promised. President Obama’s actions over the last couple months have left them "not very hopeful" about President Obama living up to the major themes of his presidential campaign.
