    unless you are a necon or neoliberal, he does so little worthy of praise, it SEEMS like all he gets is criticism.

    •  i disagree (8+ / 0-)

      he does a lot of good in certain areas, some good in some areas, and a lot of not good in other areas. part of the problem is that some people can't handle seeing him criticized over anything, and some can't handle seeing him praised. i have my own opinion on the relative numbers of those two groups, but i don't think it's relevant.

      meanwhile, i hope he returns to gun legislation, succeeds there and on immigration reform. i hope obamacare is fully implemented and its successes lead to a recognition that government can make the health care system better while its failures lead to a demand for more- ultimately for single payer. i hope there are full investigations and legal accountability for the crimes and abuses of the domestic spying.
