I see that even after ALL this time .... Herbert Dyer, Jr. has STILL never learned the very valuable lesson that it is better to be thought a fool .... than to open your mouth and erase all doubt.
It doesn't matter one bit what "progressives" (or anybody else) thinks about the President ... or how pissed off his supporter or detractors want to be at what the President is - or is not - doing ... has - or has not - done!!
Even Stevie Wonder can SEE that the Republicans can, have and will OPPOSE anything and everything the President has ever wanted to do .... since DAY 1 of his FIRST term!!! And NOTHING has changed!!! Not one iota!!
Since Republicans have never tried to HIDE the fact that they can, have and will INTENTIONALLY oppose as many of President Obama's policies as they possibly can and vote against ANYTHING he proposes while President (I mean... they have repeatedly called special Press Conferences just to STATE that very thing to the public!) .... only an idiot would be expecting "compromise" by Republicans or a willingness to engage in "bipartisanship" and actually PASS any bill into law ... if it's something that the President wants.
Sadly .... the National Democratic Party is even dumber than people like Mr. Dyer .... and they didn't even TRY to get more Democrats elected to the House or Senate during the last election!!! And ... there's no guarantee that they'll even know how to go about making that happen in 2014, either. While I wouldn't expect President Obama to be politically savvy or experienced enough to understand how very IMPORTANT that SHOULD HAVE been in 2012 ... you would think that Democratic "Leadership," most of whom who have been in the game forseveral decades were old enough, wise enough, and/or experienced enough to have realized that that should have been made a priority ... or, at the very least been given more than 5 minutes of thought!!
A lot of people believe that Hillary will run again in 2016. I don't think I believe that .... but, I certainly hope I'm wrong!! She will make an excellent President .... and give the Democrats the leadership and intelligent they've been lacking .... or, perhaps ... have NEVER had in the first place.
