View Diary: Obama isn't to blame for Republican vows to block any and all gun reforms (139 comments)

  •  ODS has two components. (8+ / 0-)

    One is the obvious, treasonous GOP desire to deliberately cause national disasters and then blame them - and their own sabotage of the solutions - on President Obama.  This is also why the media blames him for everything and characterizes everything he does in the most negative imaginable terms: They're just on the other side.

    The other, which we see far too much of around here, is the whiny, irresponsible need of the Democratic base to excuse our own failure to hold Congress accountable by blaming Obama for not being enough of a dictator or a magician to force them when we can't or won't.  Some of "us" are just plain stupid, and think civic activism consists of shrieking louder about what we want Barack Obama to do for us.

    Democracy is a habit, not a circumstance.
