  •  I still say things would go better for Obama if he (0+ / 0-)

    didn't treat his foot soldiers as though they were his parents with whom he dreaded to be seen.  It would be nice because we have been wiser given that his pacification ploys have not worked.

    •  Have you looked at the Republican's (0+ / 0-)

      numbers lately?  They're dropping like stones, mostly because President Obama is keeping the heat on their insane policies and taking the narrative away from them for the first time in decades.  His "ploys" have nothing to with pacifying them, they have to do with destroying their hold on the American psyche.  And it's working.  

      I suspect that if he'd followed the advice from the blogosphere, we'd still be annoyed about DADT, DOMA, our failure to get the beginnings of health care reform on the ground, and the annoying fact that the Republicans continue to poll well on defense and fiscal responsibility despite their batshit crazy policies and the destruction of our economy.

      This is the long game, and you don't win the long game by jumping on every new twist and turn in the public psyche.

      I'm not looking for a love that will lift me up and carry me away. A love that will stroll alongside and make a few amusing comments will suffice.
