    sound like the action of a President who wants Gitmo open. Suggesting he take action without Congress is pretty stupid given that they think he's buying bullets so he can imprison all Christians without a fight.  Any thoughts on the propaganda if one prisoner Obama releases is engaged in a crime after release?  

    Maybe we could keep the heat on Congress and stop demanding the Executive Branch power grabs we hate unless we like them?  

    Maybe Harry Reid is damn smart to let the Republicans block everything but easy flights out of DC.  Until enough actual ordinary citizens get it the Democrats lose any and every perception war because of our sad no-media environment.  We know that, but we think magic will fix it when it's something we want to happen.  

    This is all unfolding in the best possible way.  We won big in 2012 when we were supposed to lose everything.  We won despite huge corporate spending, a lousy media, a struggling economy.  It would sure be nice if we could, just once, build on our successes and stop undermining them because they aren't perfect enough.

    I'm not looking for a love that will lift me up and carry me away. A love that will stroll alongside and make a few amusing comments will suffice.
