  •  I don't agree with everything Obama's done, nor do (8+ / 0-)

    I give him a total pass for things left undone.   But there is much he cannot do alone.  I wish some of our democrats in the Senate and House were held to the same standards Obama is.

    Bottom line, both times, I consider the country lucky that Barack Obama was elected president.  (And the schadenfreude was sweet at the final tally for 2012 ;)  Having said that, though, can we progressives do a better job of getting involved and pushing/demanding more of our leaders?  Yes.

    I'm just glad to see a more "all of the above" approach to getting things done in his second term.

    Thanks for the thoughtful and supported diary.  Even someone who disagrees with your point(s) would have to credit your labor (IMHO).
