  •  Not as bad as McCain or Romney sets bar on ground (9+ / 0-)

    I'll stipulate that this president isn't as bad as Reagan, Bush I, or Bush II, either.  That's not the point here.  The point is the steadily widening gap between promises and performance w/ this president.

    Some men see things as they are and ask why. I dream of things that never were and ask why not?

      Obama's legacy is.  Till then we really don't know, despite those who "knew it from the beginning," halfway through.  I sure don't know yet.  Witness all the issues where we screamed betrayal and later were surprised.

      Fighting for justice & survival & sustainability is not about putting one person "in" and then sitting back in judgement.  That way we'll always lose.  It's more about us constantly pushing & learning and choosing struggle over comfort, over & over again.  

      Even the comfort of bitterness & blame.
