4. You know what would be a simple solution?
Edited on Tue Aug-16-11 10:48 AM by Armstead
If President Obama would feel free to state such views (like defending governmen)t forcefully -- without constantly also feeling it necessary to spend the other half of his speaking time shooting it down by agreeing with and reinforcing the lies and distortions of the GOP, right-wing Corporate Cabal.

If he did that, he might actually re-energize his liberal base, and also win over many of those moderate independent swing voters we keeping about.
