If you could read the President's thoughts...?
What does he really think about the wars in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Yemen? Are you disappointed that the President could not stop these wars?

What does he really think about money in politics and the big bankers and the insurance executives?

What does he think of all his supporters that stood solidly behind him just a bit over a year ago?
Does he believe he still has their support or, at least, a good deal of that support that put him into office? Surely they would not betray him this early in his term?

What does he really think about Tim Geithner and Larry Summers? Does he agree with them? Does he have similar economic thoughts about Big Money?

Do you think the President is governing much like you thought he would? It was not a time for dramatic actions? Did he misread his supporters or did his supporters misread him? Are those not fair questions?

2. Some of his supporters misread him....
.... and MANY of them didn't read his book.

Which is unfortunate because if they had, they wouldn't be so confused/disillusioned/upset/outraged/whatever now.

8. My wife read his book
And she is very confused/disillusioned/upset/outraged/whatever right now.
I've suggested that maybe he has a third child in CIA Day Care. She has to wonder.

She swears that he really did want to "change the way Washington works". I have to wonder.

We gave him hundreds of $ and voted for him 4 times (total), we believed him.
Then he ran with the DLC to the arms of the NeoCons.
That kinda hurt you know, especially since this country has no time left for games.

4. Did you see the picture of him sitting forward with his arms on his knees at the rally today? Not a
happy camper.

5. Rahm and his advisers probably told him...
he had to go to Massachusetts. It was not something he wanted to be bothered with, with the tragedy in Haiti and the healthcare bill's near death.

The burdens of governance are getting very heavy.

And of course being a Democratic president, he's getting piss poor support from the party and its office holders.

7. It makes no difference what he thinks
What you see is what you get.
