  •  I'm an Obama supporter with (27+ / 0-)

    no reservations.  He's the President of the United States, not the greatest Wizard in the Wizengamot, and it's the entire United States, not just the blue segments.  

    I remember all the anger and frustration here with Bush and his utter disrespect for everyone outside his circle, and I wonder how come there's so much anger and frustration with President Obama because he shows respect for everyone, even people with whom he obviously agrees.  

    There's only one position on this - either we want a President who respects everyone's right to his or her opinions, beliefs, religion, whatever, or we don't.  If we really want a ball-breaker in the WH, let's not bitch and piss and moan when their ball-breaker is running the show.

    What matters to me is what this president has accomplished, and it's a stunning amount.  Try Aji's diary and learn about what he's done for the rights of Native Americans.  Never read anything about it, do you?  I'm pretty tuned in, and this slid right past me.  Who knows what else is out there that we miss because the only way this man can accomplish anything is if he slips it past the Republicans and the Blue Dogs.  What a sad commentary, and even sadder is that Progressives call him weak and ineffective, and get away with it.

    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.
