It amazes me every single day… [View all]

From the time that I've been politically aware, since the early 1970's up to the election of Barack Obama, I've witnessed a cavalcade of political scandals that have plagued a succession of administrations.

With the current president, we've had no real scandals for more than four years straight. Look at the fact that the wingers have had to manufacture false and outrageous scandals in order to accuse President Obama of doing something wrong. I'm not saying that he does everything right, the mere fact that one sits in the Oval Office means that the occupant frequently has to choose from a list of ALL bad decisions. I also know that no president can rule by fiat, there are things that happen that have been out of ones hand.

So, I'm willing to give Barack Obama a lot of leeway. I give him that leeway based on his past performance and the potential of his future performance. I don't expect to be happy with every decision that he makes, but I don't have to be happy.

We've had decades of fuck ups by one president after the other, piling all of our problems miles high.

It's naive to think that Obama can fix them all and fix them all by himself.

There are times when I wonder when people who should be backing him up are going to do their part too.

The Republicans won't stay broken forever.
