Keep this in mind, liberals

Chris Floyd:
Many...seem to be operating on the assumption--or under the delusion--that Obama actually had some kind of political-economic-social agenda that he wanted to enact as president, and that he is now "failing" to enact it, "squandering" his opportunity. There still seems to be a belief that he ran for president because he wanted to do something with all that power.

But Obama is not "failing"; he is doing exactly what he set out to do: be the president. That's it. That's all he wanted to do. And he's doing it.

Leaving aside that I don't think liberals (of the sort you mean) read this blog, I agree. It's getting difficult to even talk to people about politics, because they immediately jump to the conclusion that anything bad you say about the red team must mean good things about the blue team, and vice versa.

Rachel - What sort of liberals would read this blog?

My response to "well if your not a conservative or a liberal then what are you" is always to stare blankly in their eyes and drool a little on their shoes.

Ah, but what both of you are overlooking is that no one, liberal or otherwise, reads this blog. Seriously, the two of you are like half of my audience.

Just keep repeating to yourself: quality, not quantity.

My, my, but someone has no shame! Luckily I agree.
