A little consolation for the other side from Slate:

"By and large, Obama’s instincts are the instincts of a moderate Republican. His policies are the policies of a moderate Republican. He stands where the GOP used to stand and will someday stand again."

Yeah the whole claim that "Obama is Far-Left" is bunch of bunk. Anyone who doesn't understand that needs to actually ASK the "Far Left". THEY certainly don't see him that way. They support him because he's further to the Left than the Far Right wackos the GOP has, but they DON'T consider him "one of them".

They sat on their porches and laughed at the Republicans choice - Mitt Romney.

You know, I was just thinking yesterday...if Obama happened to be a Republican and had carried out his presidency the exact same way he has over the past four years, the right wingers would be calling him the greatest president since Ronald Reagan.

Not this conservative, but then, I am not a Republican and didn't care that much for Reagan and damn sure didn't like Bush Jr.

I remember telling EdwardA a few weeks ago that "It doesn't matter whether you win by an inch or a mile, winning's winning."

Well, it was by an electoral mile Edward

No one likes congress, but everyone likes their congressperson. It's the same with doctors, lawyers, etc.

Two very good points.
