      I don't think so.   Wouldn't a ringing endorsement - of any liberal stand - be nice for a change?

        Sure, a ringing endorsement is better, but after two years, what you see is what you get.  In my view, tentative support is more helpful than either no support or outright opposition.

          but that's no reason to accept what we got and it doesn't make up for being sold one thing and getting another.

          Sure lukewarm is better than cold, but that's the best we've gotten out of Obama.  I've had it with the cold fare served by Obama and all the other politicians.  If Obama wants to put out some thing that's lukewarm, I'd like it to be statesmanship.  Just a little of that would be nice.
