11. Many irrational foes of history have been defeated
Step one is ending the 'you are my friends and partners' rhetoric. One thing I notice here, both of the groups you characterize in your title speak of Republicans in the terms that you use, not in the terms the President uses. Thus, I do not see that one side actually agrees with him much, they just think they do, and feel more comfortable saying that. If they agreed with him, they'd sound like him. They do not. They are not bipartisan they are fiercely partisan. They say 'I agree with the President' then they call the GOP terrorists, which is language very that is in disharmony with that of the President. I do not meet, here nor anywhere, any Democrats who actually 'follow' Obama's methods or principles. I see many claim to be his ardent supporters, but they never, ever show that support by actually agreeing with him. No, they claim 'he has to say that' and then they call the GOP father raping mother sellers. How is that 'like' Obama? How is that 'in support of his message'? It is not.
If Obama came here and posted his bipartisan love talk, those who call themselves his 'supporters' would tear his posts to pieces. So are they really, really 'in support of his messages'? No, they are not. They do not seek bipartisanship, nor speak of it. They do not praise the GOP. Ever. The President does. They do not.
So they say the opposite of what he says, in the opposite way from how he says it, yet they have declare they are his 'supporters' and so they insist upon that name. Even as they sound far, far more like Kucinich or DeFazio, whom they often stand to criticize although their opinions harmonize.
