  •  That's fine. Only you're the one making the Obama (0+ / 0-)

    connection not the diary to Republicans.

    The diary is about leadership and the risks that by default of not leading, there won't be a distinction between the outcomes of either agendas of the parties.

    That will be fact after April.

      Here's an actual fact for you, though.  I've been offline for Christmas, so I've (thankfully) missed out on the usual crying and screaming that goes on around Daily Kos when the Leftier Than Thou crowd don't get everything they want -- and I can assure you with 100% factual certainty that nobody outside Daily Kos even really has any idea what on earth you're getting so het up about.

      It's only navel-gazing political addicts like die-hard Kossacks who can't even drag themselves away from the fray for a bit of real, live family time over the holidays who are drawing these kinds of hyperventilating conclusions.  Out there in the real world, President Obama is still doing a great job and people are thrilled and delighted he's still President.

      That's a fact now, and it will still be a fact after April.  Don't kid yourself your viewpoint is held by anything approaching a majority of people.  It simply isn't.

        This is about very long term consequences for families after all.

        The proof will be in the pudding come April. People respond to leadership. Real leadership and not stabs at "plausibilities going forward" by perception managers. Either this party can handle the Republicans or they can't and fold on their own "lefty" ideals.
        People don't like hypocrites and cowards.
