    As I have been saying since Obama appeared on the scene, his main problem is that nobody ever fought a war to defend bipartisanship.

    Have millions ever marched under the banner of negotiation and compromise?

    So today the question is put to the President, what do you stand for and what are you willing to risk to achieve it?

    Hope? We've got it.

    Change? To anything in particular?  The easy stuff, the stuff you could make happen with a penstroke...done...over...thanks a lot...now what?

    We have hundreds of "representatives" who have one priority - the advancement of their own careers. As a result we have the tyranny of the 51%.

    Obstructionists merely have to vaguely associate some element of your philosophy with some badly understood term like "socialism" and your supposed generals run for cover.  You understand that. Umderstanding that was key to getting you elected.

    However, Obama is no longer fighting a one armed man.  Merely being the lesser of two evils to the disinterested underinformed voter won't cut it anymore. This is for all the marbles.

    Too often I hear Rodney King when I want Malcolm X.

    "Can't we all just get along" won't cut it.

    I want to hear that he will acheive our aims "by any means necessary".

    What did you do with the cash Joe?
