But for those who havent seen it yet Ill post it again this am.

 This is about pitch perfect assessment of this Presidency

I am sure with all appropriate acknowledgements and appreciation to Gilbert & Sullivan'

Dont read anymore without watching

I find it has a  nice mix of legitimate pride in accomplishments and wry appraisal of disappointments.

I do like  the optimistic view that this transmits

Must say that  I am one of those that is very disappointed in what we have been through.  I wanted more than he has done.  Presidentin is about more than policy It is about public perception.  I wanted a trial lawyer as president not a law professor.  Tell a story. Go for the kill. Persuade the jury.  Not all this waffling and balancing and on the one hand this but on the other that.  

But, in the end, Im on board with the Pres (even with his penchant to give away the store before negotiating and crediting people who are crazy with legitimate positions)  as these people are too

For those of you who dont know the Pirates of Penzance very Model of Modern Major General

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
