While we all tend to dwell in myopia which is a small dark safe place we can all cuddle together in ... I try to encourage myself and others to open the blinds and let in the light and look at the big picture ... any one decision we or our leaders make has a 50% chance of being right .... but doing nothing is 100% wrong - and you can hypothesize all you want about wouldda, couldda, shouldda
BUT this President DIDDA!
So crawl out of the deep dark recesses of your minds and grow some cohones like OUR President who put his second term on the line when he took out Bin Laden.
But it all began when he took on an issue that has festered for over 60 years .. health care reform. His opponents took the safe bet -nobody likes change and it's easy to criticize something when you can't see it yet.
Congress would have been very happy to give reform lip service for another 60 years and avoid the evitable blame game.
But like FDR - this President gets things done.
There have been a number of other successes like Libya for instance or the time we took out two pirates off the the coast of somalia who were holding a ships captain hostage.
Different legislative accomplishes by no means trivial like Ledbetter and DADT.
He leveraged the GOP to get a middle class tax cut in exchange for a one year extention on prolonging cuts for the wealthy.
More importantly OUR President has allowed his opponents to define themselves for all to see.
The decision still remains with voters who are susceptible to media propaganda and confusion.
Huge amounts of money are being spent to distort the lens of truth.
