  •  One of the preposterous beliefs of most people (3+ / 0-)

    on the right is that they a real shot at becoming rich.  And it keeps them voting for people who are rich and supporting policies that favor of the rich and actually undermine the slim chance that most of these people on the right EVER have of becoming rich.

    They let their belief in the near impossible actually undermine what tiny little chance they ever have of having their hopes come true.  

    And from the left, we look at them and shake our heads about how stupid they are being.

    But that's the same thing people on the left who keep expecting miracles from human beings are doing.  

    Guess what, Jesus isn't coming back and there's never going to be a President who can save this country let alone the world.  There are NO saviors.  There's just human beings.  There's just people like you and me.  That's as good as it's ever going to get.  

    And to be honest, Obama helped to end DADT and he's helping to end DOMA and ended pre-existing conditions and life time and yearly caps for health insurance coverage and just those things are stunning progress.

    Honestly, it's like Obama is a wife who works hard but isn't super woman and doesn't quite have the hot young body with the perky boobs and ass anymore and the left are feeling like they really could have done a lot better.  

    Guess what.  No.  You really couldn't have.  And you are all out of your mind for not appreciating what you actually have.

      Some people who comment on this site are really hurting.  You could be a little more empathetic.  The economy isn't improving for most.  I guess you're just lucky you're not in your 50s and laid off during the last few years.  

      If you were, you'd realize they have nothing left of their savings, no good job prospects and no real hope for retirement.

      They just hope to have a place to live and some food in their golden years.

        I'm 58 and unemployable it seems.  I completely support Anton's argument. The Obama administration has done a number of things to help me and those like me - the ACA being an important facet of that.

        But, aside from my direct personal interest, the President has accomplished a great deal to make the world a better place. This in the face of fierce Republican opposition, not to mention the sniping from members of his own party.

        I look forward to our next Democratic President, Hillary in 2006, we hope, not because I agree with her every policy position, but because she would be 1,000 times better than any Republican President - just like Obama.

        Here's my take on it - the revolution will not be blogged, it has to be slogged. - Deoliver47
