I took a lot of shit around here because I pissed and moaned about how the President handled himself in his first term. (Apparently pissing and moaning is not considered constructive.) My point was that Republicans only understand boxing gloves and I wanted more boxing gloves from the President. More Muhammad Ali and less Jackie Robinson. Anything less, I argued, was a misreading of his enemies (yes, I said enemies) in the GOP.
But the President had a feckless Senate that couldn’t get enough of pretending that the Republicans called all the shots and there was no real mandate, or whatever… water under the bridge. That’s ancient history.
What do we do now? Today. What should I do in the next 5 minutes, to help Mr. Obama follow through and have a successful 2nd term in office? I’m honestly asking.
