Writers should focus on Obama successfully passing substantive bills in toxic environment instead of petty Whitehouse drama #p2 #tcot #teaparty

  I really am not sure what to make of this article. The title brought me in. The substance seemed almost like a Fox News type description of the interaction in the White House. After so much was accomplished, in spite of GOP 100% obstructionist stance one would expect an article of this type analyzing […]

President Barack Obama Is A Misunderstood Success In The Making #p2 #tcot #teaparty

We all misunderstand this President. I am starting to understand his method. Republicans disregard him at their peril.

Failure to pass DREAM Act is not the end of DREAM #p2 #tcot #teaparty

This weekend’s vote on the DREAM Act was a disappointment. Republicans voted against a measure to give folks who are American in everything but their legal status an opportunity through military service or education.
