Fall Full Harvest Moon
Obama. Has done a fine job. The Republicans and far left (my crowd) need to back the **** off. He succeeded in the economic stimulus. He passed health care legislation. He reinvigorated the EPA. He took a good shot at climate change legislation.
His presence in the office is steady and, I believe, calming, though the dark noise of the chattering classes seems to suggest otherwise. Once the Republicans dug in their heels and decided there was no political mileage for them in bipartisanship the whole Washington scene has devolved back to the Newt Gringrich era, even further back, the right wing nut job politics of the early sixties: the John Birch Society, the Minutemen and the hangovers from the McCarthy period.
We are lucky to have him in the office and I’m glad and proud that I voted for him.
