Quote:So now all we hear about is how disappointed his supporters are. They want things their way. And they want them NOW. It doesn't matter to them that he has a teetering economy on his hands, a viciously opposed House, a financial rating system ready to pull the rug out from under us with more downgrades, and a highly financed lie machine pumping out crap day and night.
Quote:We don't deserve Obama. As he gets grayer and thinner, his supporters whack away at him. And let him down. We lost in 2010 because Democrats sat home. Now they aren't even responding to his plea that they call Congress and urge passage of the American Jobs Act. You folks won't even make one phone call for that graying, skinny guy who saved the country from economic collapse and gave us a health care act that no prior president could get for 70 years.

You won't make even one measly phone call to Congress?
Backing away from Obama is not smart. And it's dangerous. What do we Democrats really want? A Republican president, House and Senate? A bunch of the GOP's selfish and discredited "solutions" that will tumble us into a financial meltdown, take away our environmental and consumer protections, turn the Supreme Court so far right that our basic liberties are gone, end the entitlement programs? Hey, the crazies were right! Armageddon IS coming!
And it's all OUR fault! As the saying goes, "We have met the enemy and he is us."
Who of Obama's chorus of critics knows anything about running a government? Do you?
Robert Reich is on TV every three minutes whacking at Obama. As Clinton's Secretary of Labor, Reich did NOTHING! Who of Obama's critics has ever done ANYTHING?!
And when did YOU last run a government? What do you know about the hard choices Obama faces, the ones that are graying his hair and putting deep lines in his cheeks?
This, of course, is not addressing those who didn't abandon Obama after they voted for him and those who support Democracy by doing all we can to help the President fight the republicons for our country.
