  •  The right is better at "guerrilla warfare" (1+ / 0-)

    Therein lies a concern for me.  By "guerrilla warfare" I am referring to political guerrilla warfare, where on party is in the minority accross the board but manages to paralyze and ultimately overthrow the majority.  We saw it during the Carter years, the first two years of the Clinton Administration and in 2010.

    I think Obama is right to make an effort at compromise but he, and the rest of us, must be vigilant about their ultimate ends.

      They are better at guerrilla warfare. It stems from their persecution complex. However, I think part of it stems from us not understanding we are at war with them. Not because we want to be, but because they believe we are and as such have made us at war.

      The American people do not care how something is done they just want something done to help them. That is it. Obama does not need to compromise at all with these people. Take from their play books, act, and speak like you are compromising and make things better for the American people and that is all they will care about.
