The List!!! Obama 2012

The List!!! With A Twist: Republicans are pissed!

Throughout the Obama presidency, one of the most vocal and demanding factions in the Democratic Party base has been activists for gay and lesbian equality. They repeatedly protested at Obama events and even at the White House, complained loudly about Obama’s broken promises, and even threatened to boycott Obama’s re-election campaign by withholding donations. In light of that ongoing confrontationalism, as well as the importance of gay voters (and especially gay donors) to the Democratic Party, it’s no surprise that their agenda has been repeatedly attended to by Obama, as he engineered the successful repeal of Don’t Ask/Don’t Tell, ordered his DOJ to stop defending the constitutionality of DOMA, and then finally “evolved” to an Election-Year endorsement of same-sex marriage.

10. Maybe because most of us already agree.

I appreciate the information. I really do. But I think a lot of DUers, like me, don't join in a conversation when it's full of agreeable people!

But thanks, ProSense!

8. Obama's record on human rights other than GLBT rights and his drones

and failure to prosecute the big criminals on Wall Street notwithstanding, this is really important:

The Republicans argue against "regulations." They want to do away with all of them, and if you talk to serious Republican, they really think they mean it.

They have no idea what doing away with environmental regulations would mean for their children and grandchildren and many future generations of not just children but life of all kinds.

For me Obama's biggest appeal is that, in spite of the free reign given to Monsanto and his failure to definitively say absolutely not to the Keystone pipeline, he has maintained some regulation of the environment -- at least some. The Republicans would not do that.

We need more of this and less of the other, IMO.
