Amazed at how Some Folks Jump to the Extreme Negative on everything Obama Does [View all]

Every position Obama takes, he's "caving in to the Republicans" or "he's selling out his base" or "he's a corporatist puppet" or "he's making the elderly eat cat food". And, these extreme negative positions are taken without knowing ANY facts, just heresy from the media's unnamed, inside sources.

Much like the ACA, everyone was howling about how awful it was. Until the actual facts came out. Facts like, your kid can stay on your plan until 26. No co-pays for checkups. No lifetime caps. No denial for pre-existing conditions. All of the good things didn't stop folks from saying that Obama sold out on healthcare.

How about waiting until seeing the actual facts of any agreement before making a judgment? Can we try that for once?
