Nope. I don't believe it. I think he's so hungry for bipartisanship he's let himself get rolled time and time again.


Brilliant use of the "chess" metaphor, Lance, from the kings and queens to the pawns. Really clever and well done. And sadly TRUE.

Need some motivation, Watch this video, "Tea Party! America Thanks You!" Video (by DC Douglas)

"Never doubt that a small group of reactionary, xenophobic, corporately-manipulated citizens can change the world." However, I am afraid that its gonna take the TPers themselves becoming homeless and dealing with famine to finally wake them up.


Even if every word in this piece is true, there are still 2 problems:

1. Obama (and the Dems) have show NO ability to garner credit for their accomplishments. Yeah, the lazy, sometimes oppositional media is partly to blame.
2. Americans have the attention spans of gnats. Pretty sure that parents of 24 year old graduates with no jobs will remember that Obama let the kid stay on the family insurance, but that's about it. Iraq? Didn't that end before Obama? Osama who? So many more...

The only hope is that the Repub candidate in '12 is so crazy that 'moderates'either sit out or vote Obama again.

I don't have much hope for his chess game, but he appears to be a lot worse at poker.


Lance, just a thought, but the pawn is the most powerful piece on the board--if you use it to chase away the knights, rooks, bishops and queen. On any such confrontation, a backed-up pawn stares down the piece it is attacking.
