    Is the daily kos community going to hold Obama's feet to the fire, and the Democrats??
    I would be for holding Obama's feet to the fire as long as the heat is turned up higher on the Republicans.  During the negotiation, we need to invest most of our efforts exposing the obstructionists.  With the ACA we squandered most of our energy on blasting the President - and that robbed him of his political capital during the negotiation process.  We panicked and turned on him.  He took more heat than Lieberman and Nelson and that is wrong.  It was counterproductive.  If we're going to have high expectations for the President we need to also raise America's expectations on the fuckwads who work tirelessly to sabotage the public and divide our party.  So let's be smarter this time.
