  •  Get behind Obama (0+ / 0-)

    If you to help get behind him.  Otherwise, you are just adding fuel to the GOP fire.  

    As far this compromise crap, Obama is nobody's fool.  He already figured out that the GOP sucks and will change his tactics.  You already seen the new approach.  He'll call on individual Senators that he thinks will be cooperate.  Remember even with Franken we still need one of them.

    Our best bet - get even more Democratic Senators elected in 2010!

      Obama. He is just not a god. He is a human politician, and he will tend to compromise if not kept aware of the populist mandate. Politicians don't lead. They follow. Politicians represent we who govern. Read the founding documents. You have been accustomed to the conservative mantra of "shut up and obey" for so long you have internalized it.
