  •  Making yourself insane... (1+ / 0-)

    I still don't quite get your point. You sound more tilting toward insanity on the issue as well. Obama has a job and he is doing it to the best he can given the stupid players currently running the branches of our government.

    Whining and complaining that he isn't liberal enough sounds a bit petty if you ask me. Of course I would love it if he could steer this monster of a democracy towards the left more. But he is only one part of the equation. The House is dysfunctional and the Senate is still held hostage by McTurtle. And don't get me started with Scalia! We have to make sure that the damage currently being done doesn't get worse. And if that means "talking" and trying to work within these crazy parameters then we have to do something. Obama is at least doing his job, whereas the rest are watching Rome burn. He seems to be the only one with a fire hose.

    Arrogance is what I would call anyone that expects him to be doing better than he is right now. You try being the first black president within a government of racists!
