As Bill Maher said, please Mr. Obama, “stand up for the 70 percent of Americans who aren’t crazy.” I still think it’s 20% crazy, but I’m an optimist. But yes, please. It has been less than a year since Obama was elected, quite convincingly. All of those people didn’t vote for him to do nothing.
Change. Hope. And all of that stuff. Time to ignore the nuts and do it.
One more thing from Sullivan as I catch up on all the madness:
Congrats to the tea-partiers for the impressive crowds in DC today. One wonders where these people were when Bush was massively increasing debt, spending like LBJ, detaining citizens without charges and torturing them, and nation-building in Iraq and Afghanistan?
