1. I want to have a bumper sticker made to read:
Republicans:
We tried it your way;
It didn't work

3. Wait & see if actions follow the rhetoric.
It didn't exactly work that way last time.

8. As I said yesterday
I've begun to think we're Charlie Brown and he's Lucy with the football.

Like you I will hope he doesn't pull it away this time because, unlike Charlie Brown, I'm too old and cynical to fall for it much longer.

15. Obama has to consolidate his power and then act more aggressively
He has to show patience until his power reaches critical mass.

Otherwise the military industrial complex will kill him. LBJ knew this. JFK didn't. Look at where that got Kennedy. And his brother Bobby too.

19. Nope...
it's all words. Just like when he made a good speech about how he was for universal healthcare. But when it comes time to put his words into action... Obama always stops short.

5. K&R! Yes please. More please.
Better late than never to remind the American people that our president is still trying to clean up their messes.

17. Well we know he get's it
Loved it but like others said he's got to put actions behind it. He's got to boot out Rahm and say no to the conservadems.

18. "We tried it your way..." Sounds eerily familiar.
Maybe my memory isn't failing me well enough, but doesn't this have something to do with "a need for change"?

Call my conclusion impatient or cynical if you will, but when it comes to politicians, it seems as though, words are the antithesis of action.

22. We tried it your way ... and we'll keep trying it your way ...
