Response to fun n serious (Original post)

23. Obama.

Best one I've voted for, also I would argue the best one, in terms of aggregate positive impact during his entire tenure, in my entire life, and that includes Carter.

Doesn't mean I've agreed with the guy 100% of the time or even not been disappointed by him.

Frankly, something I wish we ALL would talk about more is how we had that majority going into 2009-10 and we had a window under which we could get a LOT of shit done; and yes, we got the ACA (without the public option, but still an accomplishment) but that was preceded by a fully and totally unnecessary year of endless dithering and dicking around with "town halls"

We spent a full year where we could have taken care of a whole laundry list of things, and instead we just gave an excuse for every yahoo with a tricorner hat to be shown yelling on C-SPAN.

What was up with that?
