I am going to take a moment to try to explain to my fellow Democrats why POTUS Obama is handling these RepubliCANTS/teabaggers in the correct way. First a small bit of background on this Historic President. In his short time in the Illinois Senate, he was a diplomat, a critical thinker, a man of logic and common sense. He was a politician who acted like a regular American Citizen, NOT like a typical politician.
As POTUS, he has not changed his style of governing. Which is a blessing. His accomplishment and achievements speak for themselves. If you may have happened to miss the ever growing list of his work since taking the oath on January 21st of 2009....they can be found at these three links......
Now in the last couple of days I have had numerous conversations with my fellow Democrats over why POTUS Obama won't "take off the gloves", or "Kick some ass", or "get rough and mean" with the RepubliCANTS/teabaggers. My fellow Democrats wish Obama would run a campaign similar to what the "other side" has been running since he took office. They have suggested he put advertisements out there to herald all that he has done in his half completed term. They have suggested he make speeches explaining his actions. They have suggested POTUS Obama show proof of the lies and misinformation that the RepubliCANTS/teabaggers are spreading throughout there ranks and supporters. I ask you this, my fellow Democrats,...what would it accomplish?
If you honestly believe one RepubliCANT/teabagger will change his/her vote on "NO"vember 2nd, 2010 from RepubliCANT/teabagger to Democratic, because POTUS Obama addresses ANYTHING directly to them ....you are sadly mistaken. Nothing this man can or would or could do will make those who wish to believe the lies of the Reich wing RepubliCANT/teabagger politicians, change their minds. Now we Democrats do not need any one thing proven to us or shown to us, we are intelligent enough to understand how government works. We already know what the facts and truth are when it comes to bills and laws and the obstruction of governmental progress by the RepubliCANTS/teabaggers.
By addressing anything, and thus bringing attention to an already negatively biased media industry, he would be legitimatizing the lunacy of the "other side". Which would be a mistake.
His best strategy, one he is executing now, is to ignore stupidity, not lend any credence to the insane ramblings from the opposite side of the aisle, and continue to govern.
POTUS Obama is the first Black American to hold this Nations Highest Office. As the first, he is a trail blazer. He must walk a very thin line, everything he does from vacation plans to where he worships, are scrutinized "12 ways from Sunday". If he burps in public it is on the evening news. Remember all the uproar over the style of jeans he wore to toss out a first pitch to start the MLB season?? Think for a moment...what type of firestorm would develop if he were to act as the RepubliCANTS/teabaggers act? The spin on his defending or advertising his track record would be, that he has to get out there to "toot his own horn" to help Democrats get elected.
Truth is POTUS Obama does not have to defend, explain, herald, announce or market his Presidency, that is the job of his PR staff and his press corps. Obama's job it to run the United States, and not worry about what RepubliCANT/teabaggers voters think about his Presidency or his administration...THEY ARE NOT VOTING FOR HIM NO MATER WHAT!!
Spreading the Facts & Truth are one way to kill the lies and misinformation of the RepubliCANTS/teabaggers. That is something we Democratic Americans MUST do. The second way to defeat lies and misinformation is to Vote Democratic On "NO"vember 2nd, 2010. And make sure the RepubliCANTS/teabaggers are Unemployed in "NO"vember 3rd.
To ALL My fellow Democrats....understand this...POTUS Obama is not stupid, POTUS Obama has the type of mind to always be 4 steps ahead of the opposition. Let's throw our combined support behind this President....Let's Proudly & Loudly Support Barack Hussein Obama.
