President Obama as Charlie Brown, the Repubican/tea/libertarians & the naysayers as Lucy

President Obama is the common person who is Charlie Brown

but
President Obama is the smartest person in the room and knows he is Charlie Brown, and knows Lucy will not letting him kick the ball

knowing that Lucy is reviled in the world, as are the republican/tea/libertarians

Charlie Brown though is beloved worldwide

and over the course of time(because President Obama plays the game better than anyone, )
he sees the game 5,6,7,8,9 steps ahead each and every time and wins every single game he plays

Remember something- you do NOT need to kick the football in football to win a landslide

And the republican party is totally shredded quicker than Ollie North shredded the Iran/Contra documents

The republican/tea/libertarians are nothing

And when in the near future there are NO doctor bills to pay, much like in the superb system in France,and like in France the retirement is paid for, that will mean each and every person
will have a much better life.

We just gotta get there.

So stop harping on minutia, when 9 steps ahead, life is going to be perfect

As LBJ said-(though I doubt many who seem to hate everything Obama tries to do will get the analogy-)
The great society is a place where men are more concerned with the quality of their goods than with the quantity of their goods.
Lyndon B. Johnson

or try this one

There are plenty of recommendations on how to get out of trouble cheaply and fast. Most of them come down to this: Deny your responsibility.
Lyndon B. Johnson

and remember something this holiday season-
Charlie Brown had the foresight to see how that Christmas tree would, 9 steps later, become the singular most beautiful Christmas tree in the entire village of mankind
