Unfortunately, I see there is still a contingent of FReepers who believe and pay attention to the MSM. You do yourself a disservice.
It would be nice if once, just once, I could come here and find FReepers reveling in victory, instead of bitching and moaning even though we control EVERY BRANCH OF GOVERNMENT.
It just gets so effin old.

You revel in victory when you win, and only for a short time.
Then you get to work enacting the laws your base sent you there to enact. Reveling accomplishes absolutely nothiing.
When you do nothing with what you've won, you've earned whatever crticism you get.
I didn't say I didn't like the guy.
I did ask how he used that political capital he mentioned in january. It's gone now, in case you didn't notice.
So what has he done besides alienate much of the electorate?
Old and counterproductive.
Constructive criticism is one thing. Bitching and moaning just to prove how smart and independent you are is another. I wish someone would take the time to list all the things that have gone our way in the last 20 years.
We are on the cusp of actually settling in for the long haul...and there are impatient people who are willing to just toss it away, because they started to see the trees instead of the forest. To mix about fifty metaphors.
