    "Obama Sux" side is the description of the President as "evil".... And yet diaries proliferate with great surprise that the so called "evil" President is not being anything but "evil."

    What is going on here is the producers of extreme rhetoric being hoisted on their own petard. In any logical paradigm people who are “evil” aren’t expected to do so called “good” things.

    And there is no going around that....

        against, I know that she is a long time advisor and supporter of the President, even before he entered the presidential race in 2008. So, I give him the benefit of the doubt of wanting to work with someone he is close to.

        I know she has had a rough relationship with labor, and she has had a bank in her family which failed, but, ultimately, the President has always guided what goes on in his administration and he will do the same here.

        He has said that he chose her due to her performance as one of his advisors on his Council on Jobs and Competitiveness and on his Economic Recovery Advisory Board.

        So to answer your question, I am neither for nor against, but I also am willing, more than most here to give the President the benefit of the doubt.

        I have made it known on many occasions, here in this community, that  I think the President has done a great job since entering office, especially turning around the economy, despite Republican sabotage, and I feel he should have the benefit of his own appointments.
