    Could things be better? Of course. But in all sense of reality "it ain't happening".

    Let's take this apart just a wee bit.

    What if Obama took a very liberal stand on things? Would the GOP suddenly give up their obstinate and destructive ways and allow his agenda to go anywhere? Nope. We would still be sitting right where we are today. So it's a moot point whether he stood his ground as a true liberal. This Congress just isn't going to listen to ANYTHING that is put forward. Even conservative positions they campaigned for previously are not acceptable to these crazy Tea Party types today. There is no pleasing them!

    Should Obama capitulate to them? Not in my view. But complaining that he is trying and not getting anywhere is an fruitless complaint. If we had someone in the Democratic Primary that was exactly the same as Obama but more liberal and they won the election we would see the exact same situation as we do today. It's not Obama's fault, it's simply Congress is incapable of doing anything right, left or center.

    IF, we had an actual working Republican Congress, then we could see how different ideologies play out. But right now we just don't have it. The way it looks today is we have a bunch of psychopaths running Congress trying to destroy over 200 years of a working democracy.
