    lifting that pen.

    the thing is, obama absolutely kicks political ass when he so chooses, whether it was the time he debated house republicans, and so humiliated them that faux news cut away, or his coming out for marriage equality right after a key swing state encoded bigotry against it. his staff should be encouraging that obama.

    •  I think the President is fine actually. (3+ / 0-)

      Its his political staff that isn't serving him well. I've been saying this for a long long time.

      From their handling of the left, to their inability to message consistently, to aggressively pushing his priorities, and MAINLY, putting FEAR in his enemies...up and down the line these guys don't work hard enough or smart enough.

      It will have to suffice to say that I'm not just getting that from the news media either.

        •  Another laundry list: (5+ / 0-)

          "Recovery Summer"
          "Winning the Future" (forever known as the WTF campaign)
          "Forwards, not Backwards"
          "We cant Wait"
          "Forward" (again)

          All pushed or pulled with varying degrees of intensity from "Lets try this" to "Eh...just throw it out there and see what happens."

          That isn't the president's doing. He's obviously busy taking his day job very seriously. This is the sort of thing a president shouldn't have to worry about. He should be able to know his staff has this kind of shit under control and all he has to do is show up and perform.

          •  That's some great sloganeering, Lou. (1+ / 0-)
