    ...I do what I can to convince people that it's sensible to vote for good Democrats for the House, state legislatures, etc., but all too many just go "Obama's a disaster, I won't vote for any Democrat".

    It drives me nuts.  We shouldn't be losing good Congressmen and losing state houses with good people in them just because Obama's decided to act like a Republican.

      diminish my support for him. I think that he has done an incredible job against insanely determined opposition from both Republican know-nothings and the hollier than thou Democrats.

      I would have done a few things differently, but overall his performance has been exemplary. He has brought the economy back from the brink of disaster, he has championed LGBT rights more than all the Presidents who preceded him, he saved the auto industry and millions of jobs, he has fought for the rights of women, he has kept us safe from many terrorist plots, he got Bin Laden, he has restructured our health care system to both expand greatly the number of people who qualify for health insurance while improving coverage for everyone and he reduced premiums in the process.

      What more can you ask of one man?

        Well, seeing as he's not some ordinary guy walking down the street, he's like, the president, a lot actually.

        People seem to forget the President himself said:

        We must form grass-root structures that would hold me and other elected officials more accountable for their actions.
        So those "holier-than-thou Democrats" you mention really aren't doing anything that should be treated with this kind of derision.


        Somebody has to do something, and it's just incredibly pathetic that it has to be us.

        Not much to ask, is it?
