    maybe that is why we are all so upset that there has been so little progress - no one could have predicted the total stalemate in congress - except the most cynical.

    maybe this has been the life-lesson obama has needed - that there has to be another way when the obstacles are immoveable - around, over, under or through.

    i'm glad you and i had a chance to talk and exchange ideas - i don't think we are far apart at all - just taking different roads to get there.  

    at least we don't have the issue of having to run the republican gauntlet in every phase of government that obama has had to do.  i don't think he is perfect, i don't think he is the answer to all problems - but he's the only choice we've got right now - and if we can find a way to cut through the disaster that is congress WITH him, maybe some of that dream can still be realized.

    we all have our work cut out for us - one weed, one bramble at a time - if we hope to get out of this mire.  obama can't do it single handedly - he needs support in government and he needs up - and, up to now, we all have been missing (myself, included).  with ows, there is a huge groundswell that could help him ride over the obstacles IF we are there to push - not just him, but push those obstructing out of the way.

    it is more critical than ever to wipe out the republican majority in the house and overwhelm the senate with solid, left dems.  let's give the president a second chance to live up to that dream - for ALL our sakes!

    thank you again - i've really enjoyed our interaction - it gives me hope!  again...

      right, we probably have more in common than the issues that separate our positions.

      I feel the winds of change are blowing.  What will change is yet to be decided, but it can't go on this way...too many people are suffering and in the long-run that is what matters most to end the suffering.

      Friendships aren't always forged on common ground, but they're nearly always built on mutual respect.  Here's hoping our friendship will grow.

      •  on this we totally agree! (1+ / 0-)
