    for a true left of center politician to run with the ball and push america back to the left and start a real working class revolution in response to the gop right wing agenda.
    obama isn't the person i'm sad to say but if he can just hold the fort there still may be someone in the political landscape beneath the radar of the msm who may step up and claim that label in 2016 and lead as robt kennedy was doing in 68, i have a dream and my dream is still alive even in the midst of americas decades long march towards becoming a fascist police state accountable to only the 1% and their greed.

      In many ways he has been. Yes, the health care bill was weaker than it could have been but he also succeeded in passing it, which is more than we can say for 5 Democratic presidents before him. And there is a strong case that creating the foundation for covering everyone (or almost everyone) is the first step that can then be expanded in the future. The more I learn about the details of the ACA, the more I think it is not perfect but is a lot better than what we had before. And he risked his presidency to go forward with it when a lot of his own advisors told him to give it up. You have to give him credit for that.
