  •  I am an Obama supporter, not a cheerleader... (0+ / 0-)

    After watching President Obama over the course of the past 6+ years, I have come to a few conclusions.

    He seems to have his heart in the right place almost all of the time but, to be true to his convictions, he needs to be constantly "nudged" by his supporters to actually do the right thing.

    As a person who firmly believes that everyone can/should come together and reach a compromise, our President frequently meets the opposition over half way in order to secure a deal. That is his nature, IMHO, and there is no way around it.

    That is why, as supporters, we need to be very vocal and outspoken about what we expect from him in return for our support.

    In my opinion, he can be the leader this country needs him to be, but only if we constantly "nudge" him in the right direction :-)

    •  I believe the "nudge" (0+ / 0-)

      concept is myth, created to make peeps feel more relevant. The President does what he does of his own volition but on his own timetable which drives the "right-nowers" crazy.
