  •  Governing and Elections are not the same (0+ / 0-)

    I would agree that narrative and stories are essential to campaigns.  They help people "connect."

    The problem that I have with Reagan is that he governed using mythology.  Governing requires experimentation and finding solutions that improve the general welfare.  Reagan's policies undercut the foundation of our middle class society.

    So, yes, Obama's greatest problem is governing using the mythology of "compromise."  Compromise is a tool to achieve a goal; it is not an end in itself.  The President seems to belief his goal is to get a compromise and that he will be rewarded for it.  No, the goal is to improve our community.  The results have to be real not mythological.
