    ...when it comes to letting bankers loot the country. But it's not "Change we can believe in," is it?

    Barack Obama: So morally bankrupt that he thinks people who tortured other people to death should get a pass. Likes to prosecute whistleblowers and pot smokers, though.

    •  Heh... (4+ / 0-)

      I'm convinced that part of what he meant was that he intended to change the interactions in Government - remove the hostility and get back to ol timely togetherness.  Heck in my own naivete I thought that the shellacking in 2008 would have helped to produce a better Republican party.  Oops.

      Anyway, I guess that "Some change you can believe in and some...not so much" would not have been as catchy.  But honestly, as disappointed as I am  with the areas where I think he did not usher in progress I am hard pressed to figure out who would have.  Clinton?  I doubt it - though I like what she has done as Sec of State.  Edwards? Heh.  Biden?  Ah.... no.  And so forth.  So I'm left with having a flawed President but one at least a good bit better than others in recent history.  And hopefully, I'm left with enough energy to keep pushing for better. But I have to tell you - it is an uphill battle.  Heck I can't even get Dems elected in my State let alone better Dems.

      So - sorry somewhat less than a rousing speech for or against but it is all I have right now.  But I'm not giving up.
