32. First Post - Just When I Thought That I Was Out...

Hi Folks - First post here on DU although I have been enjoying this site and the rest of you and your comments for some years now.

I tend to have a very long memory... and can recall the days of "the decider" and president (when will his artificial heart batteries ever run down...) Cheney....

Supporting Obama is easy for me because I sincerely love the guy and believe that he has done a LOT of good regardless of the relentless obstructionism from the party of grumpy old men with colostomy bags... Regardless of the obstruction the great recession is over (for most if not many..), two wars have been ended AND he continues to rightfully resist getting us into the countless opportunities for more war. The ACA is the law of the land and I personally am benefitting in a big way AND I am also healthier for it too. The US has condemned torture and as far as we know no longer torturing people. And Obama and the democrats are the party welcoming immigration reform - just what I had hoped for.

Do the dems have a problem supporting Obama? Perhaps but another question comes to mind as well and that is that Obama has not been shy about pointing the finger (rightfully I will add) at congress as well and this includes both dems and the baggers (colostomy and tea - makes no difference to me...).

Timing and tone can be everything though and as we go into an election cycle that historically results in a loss of seats for the party with the WH I do think that it's time for the democrats including Obama to at least attempt to show a single face to the customer - the American voters.

We all know (and have enjoyed to no end...) how republicans have a great deal of trouble not saying or doing something completely absurd and stupid and then gaining the negative attention from same. But to me democrats are better than this, smarter too...., and it's time for democratic leaders to come together, democratic voters too, and have one positive way forward message. It's also time for all of the rest of us who support Obama to do our part to get some votes out this November.

Sorry for being long-winded...., first post ya know and some years of pent up thoughts that I wanted to share with the good folks at the DU.

Thanks
