IT seems we are often disappointed that the President is not doing as much as we would like to improve the US. It is good to keep a perspective on what he has been able to do.
WHile the title of the post linked below is overly confrontational, the wealth of accomplishments listed (especially in contrast to what McCain/Palin or Perry/Romney would do) is a good reminder of what has been done. These are the facts and arguments we will need as we try to convince our more conservative or less political friends and neighbors of the importance of a second term. It is also going to be essential that we get more progressives elected, whether to Congress, the State House, or our County and local governing bodies. The reich wing has been building for over thirty years ( remember Hillary Clinton’s statement about a ‘vast right-wing conspiracy?)
Time for us to get busy.
