9. Thank you for posting this.
Perhaps people will call what I'm saying cheerleading, but I've been rather disappointed in many threads here lately. It doesn't seem like there's any way to please people. Suggesting taxing the wealthy at a rate a least a little closer to that of people who are making less than $109k a year so that Social Security will be there when I retire? That's a great idea! It was a great idea in 2008, too! So why do so few people see it as a great idea now?

Oh no. Obama has fallen off of his pedestal. He didn't live up to all of the huge expectations of people who thought that the president and his administration actually had super powers and that once he stepped into office that things would magically change overnight and make us all into shiny happy people holding hands. So now he's being attacked in a way similar to the way people here attacked Bush.

People, no president is perfect. No politician is perfect. And when you expect perfection, all you end up with is disappointment. The most you can expect is progress, and the solution that sounded so great in 2008 *is* progress.

As my grandmother was fond of saying, "Some people just won't be happy, not even if you hung them with a new rope."
