Dear President Obama,
Take it from a former delegate. Get new advisors.

Thank you

1. It is time for a purge. They are great at running campaigns, lousy at governing.

3. We're bleeding too profusely now.

As bat crap crazy as the right is, they are complaining about the professional left. He could even lose a lot of the Hispanic vote he gained right in the middle of the right's racist assault on them. I really don't get this at all. Someone is not thinking.

4. His advisors didn't even run Obama's campaign! He fired all of them and replaced them with DLCers!

Obama put his entire economic team, from his campaign, on the unemployment line.

And then gave their would-be jobs to the same people who crashed the economy.

10. Jarrett, Axelrod, Gibbs--yeah, you're right. They're just all filthy DLCers.
Oh, wait. No, they're not.

6. They know how to win elections, but don't have the principles when in office.
The Obama team ran a near perfect campaign. But, when it came to leading while governing, they fell flat. The fire, the resolution and the conviction disappeared. They stayed in campaign mode. They failed to see the potential, or chose the easy conservative view over the bold, progressive view.

They have tried to appease the conservative middle at the expense of real change.
