“But I have to say, I’m pretty close to giving up on Mr. Obama, who seems determined to confirm every doubt I and others ever had about whether he was ready to fight for what his supporters believed in.” – Paul Krugman

    I hope the president got the message. The American people want the economy fixed and tighter controls on the banks and Wall Street. If he wastes 2010 taking dumb trips and accepting awards, I predict Obama will only serve one term. It’s up to him.

    We need to stop relying on Obama and do more to push him.

    Yes, we have to make sure he gets the right message – that he needs to stand for something and not be Republican Lite. I’m very worried that he’ll take this to mean he should go farther right rather than left. Also he should bring back Dr. Dean as the DNC chairman; he would keep him on the right track.

  4. I’m all for pushing him, too. A kick to the shin as well. He’s got good health care.

    President Obama today proposed rules to block banks from using bailout monies to invest in derivatives and make profit at taxpayer expense. This is a good move and something Obama needed to do last year. Better late than never.

    I think Obama has disappointed progressives enough in his first term that the one term presidency is already clinched.

    For me, the prolonged wars, and continuation of too many Bush policies are not the change I believe in.

    Participating in “Don’t Ask, Don’t Give” is the right thing for me.
