    "respect" in those who disagree. It is raw contempt very similar to that which we see from the TPers.

      asked us on more than one occasion to hold his feet to the fire in upholding Democratic principles. Most here are doing that, respectfully. I join you in admonishing those who disagree in derogatory tones. I still support him, voted for him, contributed to his campaign and continue to RESPECT his invitation to participate and push back hard.

        saying the President has sold us out, is in bed with Wall Street, is a murderous thug, that we should stay home in droves and not vote...those are holding his feet to the fire?  How insane.  How about when you see something you don't like, questioning it while acknowledging the things your opponent has done right, suggesting other solutions, understanding the terrible consequences to some Americans if we go over the fiscal cliff.  The author is addressing the all or nothing crowd not people holding Obama's feet to the fire.  There's a huge difference between expressing your unease and out and out attacks on character.
