    Sad, but amusing that the worst insults aimed at Obama is that he’s acting exactly like Reagan, GHW Bush, and “W”, but with far fewer casualties. Yes, it is time for some actual change, but with Boehner in the House, and the filibusters in the Senate, it ain’t that easy to “run the government”. Which, that is the reason for separation of powers, but the Federalists and Democratic Republicans, much as they argued, couldn’t conceive of the blatant “party line idiocy” that neocons are using today, to destroy the nation for their “party”.

    Eliminate term limits?
    Yes we can.

    Gilbert and Sullivan were right:
    “I always voted at my party’s call
    And I never thought of thinking for myself at all!”

    My theory is that when you take on a position you tend to take on the characteristics of that position — even if you disagree with those characteristics. It can be very hard to struggle against that tendency. I speak partly from personal experience — several times in my life I’ve found myself doing things I would not have expected to do because I found myself in a role that expected me to do so. That’s one reason I no longer accept higher administrative positions (I mean higher in the context of where I work). Anyone elected president is going to have to take on a lot of unpleasant presidential roles. On the one hand, I just don’t buy the Republican attack on Obama, on the other hand, I’m disappointed that he’s too much like all other presidents — disappointed, but not surprised.

    Note that these are all things that the president can do without having to turn to congress.

    It’s not a coincidence that shutting down the legislative process completely makes it easier to focus media attention on these things, including things that progressives find to be troubling.

    But but but…….. President Franklin Pierce was arrested for running over an old lady with his horse in 1853!!!

    Obozo’s scandals weren’t nearly as bad as that so let’s just pretend nothing happened.

    Right Looney Lefties?
