Subject: O-ama Report Card.  Part 2 of 2. June 8, 2010

Sometime I think some people would grip even if they
were hung with a new rope.

.......................................................

Meanwhile back in the reality-based community - in just
12 short months -- P-esident Ob-ma:

#Continued to  draw down the misbegotten w-r in Iraq
(But that wasn't good enough for his critics)

#Thoughtfully and decisively picked the best of several
bad choices regarding the wa- in Afghanistan
(But that wasn't good enough for his critics)

#Gave a major precedent-setting speech supporting g-y
rights
(But that wasn't good enough for his critics)

#Restored America 's image around the globe
(But that wasn't good enough for his critics)

#Banned torture of American prisoners
(But that wasn't good enough for his critics)

#Stopped the free fall of the American economy
(But that wasn't  good enough for his critics)

#Put the USA squarely back in the bilateral
international community
(But that wasn't good enough for his  critics)

#Put the USA squarely into the middle of the
international effort to halt global warming
(But that wasn't good enough for his critics)

#Stood up for educational reform
(But  that wasn't good enough for his critics)

#Won a Nobel peace prize
(But that wasn't good enough for his critics)

#Moved the trial of t-rrorists back into the American
judicial system of checks and balances
(But that wasn't good enough for his critics)

#Did what had to be done to start the slow, torturous
and almost impossible process of health care reform
that 7 pr-sidents had failed to even begin
(But that wasn't good enough for his critics)

#Responded to ha-red from the right and left with
measured good humor and patience
(But that wasn't good enough for his critics)

#Stopped the free fall of job losses
(But that wasn't good enough for his critics)

#Showed immense personal courage in the face of an
armed and dangerous far right opposition that included
the sort of disgusting people that show up at public
meetings carrying loaded weapons and carrying Timothy
McV-igh-inspired signs about the "b-ood of tyrants"
needing to "water the tree of liberty".
(But that wasn't good enough for his critics)

#Showed that he could not only make the tough military
choices but explain and defend them brilliantly
(But that  wasn't good enough for his critics)

Other than those "disappointing" accomplishments -- IN
ONE YEAR -- Pre-ident Oba-a "failed"! Other than that
he didn't "live up to expectations"!

Who actually has  failed...

...are the Americans that can't see the beginning of a
m-racle of national rebirth right under their jaded
noses. Who failed are the smart a-s ideologues of the
left and right who began rooting for this Pres-dent to
fail so that they could be proved right in their dire
and morbid predictions. Who failed are the movers and
shakers behind our obscenely dumb news cycles that have
turned "news" into just more s-upid entertainment for
an entertainment-besotted infantile country.

Here's the good news:  Pres-dent Obam- is succeeding
without the help of his lefty "supporters"  or
h-te-filled Republican  detractors!

The Future Looks  Good

After -bama has served two full terms, (and he will),
after his wisdom in moving deliberately and cautiously
with great subtlety on all fronts -- with a canny and
calculating eye to the possible succeeds, (it will),
after the economy is booming and new industries are
burgeoning, (they will be), after the doomsayers are
all proved not just wrong but silly: let the record
show that not all Americans were panicked into thinking
the sky was falling.

Just because we didn't get everything we wanted in the
first short and fraught year O-ama was in office not
all of us gave up. Some of us stayed the course. And we
will be proved right.

PS. if you agree that Ob-ma is shaping up to be a great
pre-ident, please pass this on and hang in there!  Pass
it on anyway to ensure that his "report card" gets the
attention it deserves.
