  •  inclusiveheart, but Washington didn't (0+ / 0-)

    become President until after the war!

    Also his men and the American People, (revolutionaries) did all the grunge work!

    I visited Valley Forge in grammar school and saw the log shacks, Washington's troops stayed in.

    I learned how they starved, froze, and had no coats, gloves and boots, leaving their bloody, frostbitten footprints in the snow! I think Washington had boots and food.

    He was the lucky one, probably a great general. But I wouldn't credit him all that much!

    It's always the everyday American, who does all the work!

    Yes and No to the rest of your comment.

    While nowadays we do have a representative govt. If  they do not provide for the best interests concerning the welfare of the people they propose to represent then they are not doing the job they were elected to do!

    Our American Presidents are usually subject to the whims of Congress. So blaming Pres Obama is unrealistic.

    I'm from Hudson County NJ, so I do not argue with you that Democratic inertia can sometimes be problematic. This goes for the Republican party too.

    Politicians in both parties, have an obligation to the American people to do the right thing! Their personal feelings or financial objectives are not supposed to be brought into play!

    A Democracy is a government; of the people, for the people and by the people!
    It should not be compromised by who can buy the election better!

    Pres. Obama did not win the election because the media fawned on him. I remember pretty much the opposite.

    He won for various reasons, besides the fact that the people in America were outraged by the previous administration's dysfunctional incompetence!

    Like the fact that those of us at the grassroots level understood that Pres Obama is a good man, who has our best interests in mind and is able to get the job done!
    Never has any other great President ever been able to do this, without the support and cooperation of the American people!

    Finally, aw come on, do you see any real news on Fox, and other news channels, besides msnbc?

    I was watching the msm, before the 2010 elections and was numb, from what I was seeing and hearing.

    Now I understand what yada, yada, yada means!
