    that permanmently thinks Obama is out to get us, we're not going to agree so please just stop

    There's always give and take, but it would be nice if Obama's 'base' actually was his base.

    Just saying

    •  It'd be nice if President Obama ... (0+ / 0-)

      ... had the same "base" as Candidate Obama.

      •  in general (0+ / 0-)

        candidate Obama and President Obama are the same, it would be nice if you understand I think that politics especially for the last 4 years is going to have to involve compromise which means not getting exactly what you want.

        You want to change that? Then we need the House and filabuster reform, it's that simple

        •  Pie in the sky will taste great, huh? (0+ / 0-)

          Of course we're not going to get exactly what we want, nobody is pitching a fit about that, it's about whether President Obama is making credible, good-faith, competent efforts to get as much as possible of what Candidate Obama appeared to be advocating.

          It would be great to have a Democratic majority in the House, and filibuster reform, and even a supermajority of non-Blue-Dog Democrats in the Senate.  No doubt there would then be other excuses, but sure, it'd be a good thing.

          In the meantime, it would be nice if having been put in the batter's box, Obama would at least occasionally swing for the fence, rather than giving us one bunt after another.
