He hasn't forced anything he's asked for, and the lastest tax compromise has everyone howling. The way Democrats and his liberal base are whining right about now, it would seem that the President's priniciples are more like the Flavor Of The Day. That's not a leader, that's a puppet.

What say you?
How do you spell narcissist?

It is likely going to be his own liberal base in revolt that leads to a primary challenge to Obama in the upcoming election cycle.

A strong Democrat needs to challenge Obama in the primaries for the Democratic Nominee for President in 2012.

The TOS is something to offer, unless, of course, you consider yourself above the rules of this site.
Do you own this site?
What does Valentines day have to do with anything?
Oh, thats right, nothing at all, just you taking a typical cheap shot because thats all you have.

As opposed to you coming to the thread to cry about the TOS? You simply couldn't resist could you?
