    •  Because he's only one man? (0+ / 0-)

      He can't move the entire mountain of Republican stupidity by himself.

      But unlike you, he has to live with it every day.

      He's advancing gun control and gay rights and even possibly climate science. He's trying to elect Democrats so the system can function. In the meantime he's trying to keep the boat floating so the fewest number of people drown. Isn't that enough?

      You want a president with more rational economics, elect a Congress that's more rational. Or, for that matter, more rational reporters, pundits, and voters.
