10. Give Obama some room

Even before the 2008 ballots were dry, I began hearing that Obama was a disappointment.

Let's not go there again.

The President accomplished much. Isn't that why America voted for him?

I am perfectly happy to see the Bush tax cuts expire, even if it means my own taxes go up.

Not so happy about the "sequester," which would cut tens of billions from the very small part of the federal budget that is discretionary (not "wars," not Social Security and Medicare.)

Can't imagine the House Repubs want to be "blamed" for taxes on the great majority of Americans going up, while benefits for those Americans are whacked.

The only trick is to make sure the public understands it really is the Republicans who caused it.

Votes in 2012 make pretty clear that the public already does.
