    Obama did plenty in the areas you mention, and he could have done a lot more without unprecedented opposition (they have an "R" after their names).
    Conservatives outnumber liberals two to one in America, so face facts.  If Obama tried to please only the progressive purists that lurk here, he'll be an ex-president next year.  And check me on this, but former presidents don't get to sign many bills, do they?
    Go lurk on RedState, why don't you?

    Unfortunately, President Obama doesn't have time to read DK, so contact him here: The White House, 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20500 (Postcards, not letters! Please give your email address.) -- 202-456-1111 -- FAX: 202-456-2461

      "Conservatives outnumber liberals two to one in America, so face facts."

      people who call themselves conservatives outnumber people who call themselves liberals.

      but more people hold liberal views than conservative views.

      don't buy into right-wing talking-points, ok?

      •  Perhaps, but can voters see beyond the labels? (1+ / 0-)

        True, the policies that Obama has championed and implemented are actually in line with what the majority of Americans want.  But as recently as last summer, 55% still viewed him as a socialist.
        The bottom line is that our progressive base is just not big enough to carry a presidential election.  Obama needs the moderates and independents.  Until January 2013.

          That poll was from July 2010.  I wonder if more or fewer Americans still view him that way.
