This Is Truly A Good Time To Be A Democrat!

Last edited Sat Jan 19, 2013, 11:15 PM - Edit history (1)

On the eve of President Obama being sworn-in to a second term, I wanted to take a moment and state the obvious. Not only is this a great time to be a Democrat, but as I look back at President Obama's first term, I can't help but to feel a sense of amazement at the work he has done and the work ahead. In the face of unimaginable obstruction from the opposing political party, President Obama has not only worked hard for the American people, but for the cause of the Democratic Party!

Now, there may be times that we may criticize some of his actions or his thinking, and that is natural with any politician in any political system, but I think that through it all, President Obama is one of the most decent men to hold the office of the Presidency, and history will reflect that!

From the self described "skinny kid with a funny name" to a two-term President of the United States - here's saying "bravo" to all the work that has been done in his first term, and here's wishing him all the best in a second term!

We are dealing with an unprecedented, contrarian Republican Party. Because of this, it's a BAD time to be an American.

2. There's no better reminder of that than watching the '09 pre-inaugural goings-on on C-span

which is being shown right now: http://www.c-span.org/Live-Video/C-SPAN/

Just a moment ago, Cheney rolled out of the WH in a wheelchair with a cane in his lap. Biden followed from behind with a somber look on his face & said to a few people standing on the portico, "A little chilly out here."

17. Yes, lmsp! And Pres Obama's going to use Lincoln's Bible and Dr Martin

Luther King's Bibles at his Inauguration!

WASHINGTON -- President Barack Obama is putting a symbolic twist on a time-honored tradition, taking the oath of office for his second term with his hand placed not on a single Bible but on two one owned by Martin Luther King Jr. and one by Abraham Lincoln.

The inclusion of King's Bible is particularly significant since the inauguration comes on Jan. 21, the federal holiday in honor of the civil rights leader, who delivered his "I Have a Dream" speech 50 years ago at the Lincoln Memorial. Obama will be facing the memorial as he takes the oath. King's Bible, which his children say he used early in his career as a preacher, has never been part of a presidential inauguration.

23. Please give him demands

Decent man he might be. This has nothing to do with policy. Time will tell if Obama is a Wall Street Monetarist Neo-Liberal or a New Deal Democrat!

He MUST raise the debt ceiling via the 14th amendment! He must nationalize the Federal Reserve and lend low interest century bonds for infrastructure, re-industrialization, hospitals, public schools. He must stop supporting scab jobs to make it appear as if he has created real jobs. He must support a 1% Wall Street Sales Tax! He must stop ALL cuts to entitlement programs that he has allowed even before the fiscal cliff. The list goes on...

If Obama does not accomplish these things he is not a Kennedy, he is not an FDR, he is not a Lincoln and he is not even an LBJ. Democrats must pressure Obama to do these things! If you are not willing to pressure the president with demands then you are allowing the descent of the Democratic party into the Monetarist Neo-Liberal wing which is now the dominant faction.

I beg you, never be content. We need change and it can not be pocket change reforms Obama has instituted.

50. once again

I joined this board in November of 2004. Kerry had just been defeated. I wanted and needed some kind of support group. I thought I was joining a group of like-minded people who were working together to undo the damage that Bush had done/was doing to the country.

It turns out, that I feel like I need to constantly bash Dems, because they keep refusing to undo that damage.

I mean, by electing Democrats to Congress and to the White House, we were supposed to get rid of those tax cuts that favor the rich.

At least I thought so. Instead, Democrats keep most of them, and only about six people on this board seem to care.

Like I said, apparently we will fall for anything. It's apparently a great time to be part of a party that embraces the Bush tax cuts.

I am so old, I can remember when it was better to be a Democrat. When, for example in May 2003 when EVERY SINGLE Democratic Senator voted against the Bush tax cuts. Even Lieberscum. Fast forward to 2012 and almost every Democratic Senator voted to keep them. Wow, what a change. It's unbelievable. In just nine years, the Democratic Party has apparently become the Republican Party.

52. Yes it is great that he is the one in the WH

However, I will reserve my jumping for joy until after I hear exactly what his plans for this term are. Already I have the idiot teabaggers at my job talking about the Obama debt bubble. They claim that if Obama does nothing different on this term than his last that in 2017 when he leaves office he will be leaving a legacy of 22 Trillion in debt massive inflation, and higher interest rates. They claim that there will come a time when the FED will not be able to keep the interest rate on the debt at the current 1.5 percent and it will return to the historic norms of 5-6 percent when that happens the interest payments alone on the debt will eclipse more than half of the current revenue causing austerity to destroy SS and Medicare. They believe there will be no way to tax our way out of that problem and any massive tax increase on the Middle class will meet with a major revolt against Obama at the end of his term they believe that historians will ask why Obama did nothing to deal with the bubble as it will destroy the currency, as they run the media talk circles with this type of debt bubble fear mongering it will not take much to make it stick in many persuadable minds.

My fear is that Obama himself will succumb to the future debt bubble talk early on this term and be enticed to cut spending and give in on the GOP dream of privatized SS and major cuts to Medicare. The baggers say that Obama has no stomach for massive cuts to the DOD because the news streams of his term will continue to show a resurgent Communist Russia, a building of massive military from Communist China, the Iranian nuclear threat becoming a reality and further deterioration in the Middle East not to mention the rise of Al Queda in Africa. They claim the only thing left he has is massive spending cuts and every day we spend at current levels it means those cuts get just a tad bit deeper.

I know what the correct solutions are to this debt problem but I have yet to hear them spoken by the President that is why I said my jumping for joy is reserved for now.

62. My wish, my prayer for America is that history rank BHO as one of the five greatest presidents

ever. For this to become reality, he imo must bust (politically) a gaggle of right-wing heads, so many that the GOP will be destroyed as a viable second party. After all, did not a 2009 Homeland Security Department report identify domestic right-wing extremists as our greatest threat, a greater threat to America, its people and government, than Islamic extremists? Please Mr. President, make that top-five list, which would require imo that you bust a gaggle of right-wing heads in the process.
