I thought CNN did not do justice to the statistics they reported. It is at this time I have trouble turning the other cheek and loving those who spew interpositional and obstructionist hatred at the president.
What CNN SHOULD have reported is a Republican Party who will NOT show up for the dance even when the president invites them, whose ugly insulting animus is in rare form and whose moral compass and love of country first has been eradicated.
To the extent that this country is divided, and I think it is, the fault lay NOT with Barack Obama who thought he would be dealing with and tried to create a unified nation but with Republican charlatans -- hateful and extreme -- dedicated to making him, by their own admission, a one term president.
If Republicans had admitted they lost multiple elections and did not try to subvert the president at EVERY turn we would most probably be significantly out of the Great Recession. BUT the president was handed a can of worms in both policy and the people who made policy in the previous Republican administration. The Republican Party is now SO racist and SO extreme they cannot bear to call the president correct even when it is blatantly obvious that he is.
WHY THERE IS NOTHING MORE IMPERATIVE THEN BOOTING REPUBLICANS OUT OF THE HOUSE IN 2014, INCREASING DEMOCRATIC LEAD IN THE SENATE AND OF COURSE IN 2016 RETAINING A DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENT -- YES, I WANT IT ALL SO WE CAN GET SOMETHING DONE WITHOUT PULLING TEETH AND THEREBY SAVE A NATION!
