    and eyes, because I'm heavy into "Lie To Me" (so I'm a little slow).  If Chuck Todd has any sensitivity at all, he's crying tonight.  Micro-expression:  extreme disdain

    I'm not looking for a love that will lift me up and carry me away. A love that will stroll alongside and make a few amusing comments will suffice.

        pretty clear that Pres. Obama can hardly stand to be in the same room with any of them.  He's polite, he's civil, but he manages to slide in zingers .  I love watching him in action.  I can't understand how people can possible believe he's too laid back, or weak, or not a leader.  If 10% of Dems in Congress were 10% as good as he is the Republicans would not be writing the narrative.

        He's actually rewriting the narrative, which thrills me.  We've moved from "tax and spend Democrats" to "The Party of No" to "33 Seniors pay $6000 more per year.....", and there's a slogan in this newest push which I haven't found the Bumper STicker for yet.

        Deaniac at TPV wrote a great post about that, and about how Obama's teaching citizens that taxes really pay for things they like.  It's hard to believe they've gotten this numb and dumbed down (until you look at the voting record).  I can' understand not knowing that your taxes pay for services that keep you safer, make your life easier, protect you.  Do they think the money for firefighting comes from the Arson Fairy?  

        I'm not looking for a love that will lift me up and carry me away. A love that will stroll alongside and make a few amusing comments will suffice.
