  •  I am a liberal, a progressive (4+ / 0-)

    A Democrat.

    I send messages to the Obama White House when I am disappointed. I have expressed disappointment on line. But I get over it. Like everything in life.

    It's been a lovely summer. And I have enjoyed it tremendously. Next summer is strictly campaign mode. And I know I will meet wonderful people who will all have the same goal I do - the re-election Barack Obama.

    I can't wait. I have zero interest in fighting with people at DKos who are disappointed in him. I have zero interest in trying to sway them. I do my swaying with people that I meet personally. I do it every single day. And I have noticed that Republicans who I know like him. Not because of his policies, as they believe he is a socialist or whatever the latest name is. But they do like him as I do my level best to bring out the comparisons between him and Romney, etc. The President always comes out ahead in these conversations.

    Presidencies always have regrets, disappointments. Always.

    I gave him as much money as just about anyone perhaps. I don't know if my voice is heard, but I keep sending messages to the White House. It's what you do as a citizen. It's what you do in a democracy.

     All I do know is at the end of the day, I will never ever quit on him.

    Never. And I will support his supporters 100%. I admire them a great deal.

    The Bill Mahers of the world I have tired of. President Obama is as hard working a president as we will ever have I imagine.

    And I intend to work very hard for him in return next year.

      suggests that the diarist differs from you in this - "I have zero interest in fighting with people at DKos who are disappointed in him. I have zero interest in trying to sway them."

      That is the basis of my comments.

        grow a pair? The fact that you're quibbling over the word "lazy" tells me I've struck a nerve. Once again, you're using the techiques of the Teabaggers and Sarah Palin: move the goalpost, deflect attention from the real matter, make yourself the victim.

        Tell me, were you born a ratfucker or is it an acquired art?
