Thank You, Mr. President. You Held Back the Worst

  1. It's worth pausing for a moment to show gratitude to Barack Obama for his decent moral character. Under the most trying conditions he has held the tide against disheartening reactionary opposition. It took character to do that without descending to the level of right-wing ideologues, for whom no tactic is too low.

    When the Republicans became the party of no in the weeks after Obama's inauguration - placing their hatred of him above doing good for the country - and later when they caved in to Tea Party
    fanatics during the debt-ceiling crisis, they lost the right to be a governing party. That was the opinion of David Brooks in the New York Times. Apparently they've regained that right. When Mitt Romney stated in the debates that as Massachusetts governor he worked with both parties to get things done, he lost the right to be a credible presidential candidate. Fareed Zakaria pointed out last Sunday on his CNN program that Romney in fact vetoed 800 bills passed by the Democratic state legislature and left office with a 34% approval rating.
    The notion is afoot that "extremists" control both political parties. That, too, is a lie unless believing in global warming, developing alternative energy, and being a steward of the environment is extremism. For three decades the right has cobbled together a coalition of fringe splinter groups, each unsavory on its own. Together, they took us through the looking glass, turning moral values on their head - to vilify moderates is now a sign that you are a good person. To destroy Iraq indicates your patriotism. To pander to intolerant religious groups and pass racist voter ID laws indicates how politically intelligent you are.
    My heartfelt thanks goes out to the President for holding all of it back.
  2. While many times I thought Obama should have fought fire with fire and been far more aggressive against republicans I'm satisfied with his accomplishments as President
