  •  What I have wanted (22+ / 0-)

    And still want since Shrub flew off to Tejas

    One, return the excessive powers taken by the Executive office by Cheney and White House lawyers. I want those absolute powers brought back into balance.

    Two, I would like justice to be served to the thieves and pirates who caused the financial collapse to deter ongoing and further piracy. I want the too big to fail banks broken up. I want a renewed wall between investment and commercial banking.

    Three, I want the President to seriously lead this country on issues involving climate change, not just give nice speeches about it.

    Fourth, I want the corruption curtailed in the political process. It has infected everyone and every transaction in DC and undermines the very foundation of good governance.

    Those are the biggies. Lots more sub issues, but these seem to encapsulate the largest problems I think the President has poorly handled.

    I know I have no power as a lone voice to change business as usual in DC. But I will not cease my criticism on this political blog as I witness and document what I feel is a very sad political trajectory in this country.

    The fruits will potentially come when enough people join together and get organizing. It is happening right now on the issue of gun control, for example. I wish we could join forces on some of the other issues I mentioned above, as well.
