  •  I agree that it is not Obama's fault (0+ / 0-)

    (at least not entirely). If I was him in my first term, and like him, had very little inside knowledge of Wall Street, I might have looked for people who shared my basic philosophy, but had inside connections with the hope that they could actually get some things done without completely disrupting global commerce. That is exactly what he did.

    Not only was Obama facing the worst economic disaster since the Great Depression, he was facing the wrath of 1/3 of the country for being black. I think he, like Lincoln, has shown extreme resilience in the face of unthinkable obstacles. Has he done everything perfectly?, we will never know. Have things gotten better?, I think the giant ship of state is in the midst of a very slow turn to the left (the correct path).

    Not only that, but our president actually reads stuff and responds. When we at DKos said loudly that we did not want war in Syria, along with a lot of others, he actually listened and did something that NO Republican EVER would have done. He re-considered.
