One Constituency at a Time

President Obama may not make all of the people happy all of the time, but he is making some of them happy some of the time.

He’s going to El Paso tomorrow.  Hopefully, he will make a strong statement on immigration.  Sensible people know that, despite all of the Republicans poo-pooing what he did — killing OBL was something GWB and Cheney could never do.  Others know that repealing DADT was a big win.  (Others yet are still whining about it.)

President Obama is building a campaign stronger that it probably needs to be, but who could blame him?  I think we could handle a president like him for a long time.  Of course, I feel very certain that he will be re-elected — this presidential season is going to be the silly season.  I know old Joe will be old, but perhaps he won’t do a Cheney — mostly because he’s healthier — and we could have old Joe for a few years until Deval Patrick or Cory Booker are ready to be President.

A girl can hope, can’t she?

  1. Even if Joe does do a Cheney, what are the chances that the Reps will find a “new” star by then? Especially since their “young guns” were already middle-aged has-beens when they made their move last year (and nobody seemed much interested, even in their own party). And in 4 years I’m hoping (and praying to Isis) that the Hezbochai has run its course and they’ve all gone home with their lawn chairs & scooters, bitter till the end that no one takes them seriously (well, except for the mainstream media whom they despise). If it wasn’t for Christian A. & Judy W. entire weeks would pass without mention of them. Soon (help me, Isis!) they’ll be nothing but a wisp of a barely-remembered bad dream coughed up from the lilywhite suburbs.

    • Teabaggers are fringe:

      “Do you consider yourself a supporter of the Tea Party Movement?”

      Yes No Depends
      (vol.) Unsure
      % % % %

      5/5-7/11

      26 62 2 10

      62% don’t support them, but yeah, Judy and Gwen give them 100% of their time.
