Quote of the Day
"There are many things Obama could have done better (or not done at all), but he has certainly steered America away from the disastrous path set by the Bush Administration and set the foundation for a far more stable future. He still remains the only viable candidate from the Left, and everyone should stop kidding themselves that a Dennis Kucinich or Ralph Nader can rescue America and turn it in to a socialist paradise. They can't, and the sooner we get behind the President, the better."
-- Ben Cohen at the Daily Banter
That about sums it up for me. Obama isn't perfect by any means and there are things he has and hasn't accomplished that have infuriated me. But make no mistake, he's done a lot of good while in office that he doesn't get nearly the credit for that he should; on the contrary, what he's gotten is a giant ration of either unfettered crazy or unapologetic indignation from every side imaginable.
