"Obama came into office promising change and people clutched that to their breasts and ran off in every direction thinking that their pet liberal/progressive cause finally had a champion who would make everything all better overnight. But sometimes change is gradual and, now sixteen months later, he is unacceptable. Quite frankly the country Obama inherited is a fucking mess and, while I’m not entirely thrilled with everything that has gone down under him, I’m willing to cut him some slack. So, have a little faith. This is not the end of the world. Pick your battles wisely and, seriously: chill the fuck out. (Again)"

Couldn't have said it better myself. Of course I wouldn't want to be the one Jane Hamsher comes after with a kitchen knife.
