I think about some Democrats running away from Obama like lemmings to the sea. I would remind them that Obama himself is not running away from his responsibilities. Far from it. He is working as hard as he can to enhance justice FOR ALL, not only the rich and powerful. Despite recent stumbles, e.g. the health care debacle, this good man has not fallen. It is easy to forget the harsh impediments that have been placed in his path by the far right from the very beginning–2007, when I believe Mitch O’Connell declared that his prime goal was to prevent Obama from being elected to a second term. Still, the president has not given up. Democrats must place principle above politics, or we will become a mere mirror image of our opposition.
