2. Yeah, I see your posts around here, boingboi..trying to tear down the President..Ain't Gonna Happen.
Prez today nominated the first Black Gay Judge to Federal Judgeship..
President Obama today nominated William Thomas to a judgeship on the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida, an appointment that, if confirmed, would make Thomas the first openly gay black man to be a life-tenured federal judge.
Thomas, currently a judge on a state court in Florida, was recommended for the federal nomination by the Presidential Appointments Project, coordinated by the Gay and Lesbian Victory Fund, BuzzFeed reports.
PBO Tweet from today..

10. Totally agree....
Especially with that last press conference.
I think two things:
First is that our expectations are more realistic. Let's face it, before we expected miracles from Obama. You don't go from a policy of greed to something closer to socialism in one term.
Second...he is different. He's had experience and now knows what kind of people he is working with. He knows republicans are people who don't care what's best for the country...they only care about pushing their agenda.

11. I'm with you, richgirl
I think Obama will realize that the majority of the base that elected him (young people, minorities, women, progressives) actually much favor something more akin to Socialism than the "trickle down" lies that the republicans are always pushing. This will encourage him to go for a broke with a very progressive agenda in the second term.
At least I really hope so!
