    •  Deja vu? Puristes agian reacting to media reports (0+ / 0-)

      The negotiations between the President and the R's is still under way and yet we have nearly half of the responders to this diary ready to drop the President because they feel he's not doing enough for them. Had the Dems not defected in the 2010 election the gerrymandering that has put the House out of reach would not have happened.
      The President is looking like the adult in the room and as long as he does, the R's are going to be increasingly seen as the duplicitous surrogates for the wealthy that they are.
      Keep your opinions on the President's efforts in perspective, please, and remember; the President is on our side, he is now, and always has been. He just happens to be in the spot that makes the decisions, across the table from jackals, worm tongues and charlatans. Those decisions would be a lot easier if his own side didn't over react in the opposite direction of the GOP.
