morning everyone

Bob Cesca: One of the most often-overheard refrains from the Republican Party and its far-right base is that President Obama is the worst president in American history….

But what does this say about the men and women who are noticeably hesitant to officially announce their candidacies for the Republican nomination?

…At this juncture in the 2008 cycle, most of the major Democratic and Republican candidates were underway with their official campaigns…

…If what they’re all saying were true (its’ not), why are they so clearly afraid to run against President Obama: a president who they claim is some sort of gelatinous, terrorist, girlish, treasonous, Eurotrash socialist, gay, Kenyan constitutional usurper?

There are several reasons why the Republicans are dithering … First, Republican voters are more convinced about the wacky birth certificate thing than they are about their preference for a nominee…

…Economic growth is up, and has been steadily growing since the passage of the president’s recovery act. President Obama successfully appointed the first Hispanic female Supreme Court justice which invigorates a growing Hispanic demographic. Unemployment is slowly declining. The stock market is up, thus stabilizing 401(k)s and mutual funds owned by middle class Americans. And despite what the Republicans say, the president and the Democrats cut the deficit by $122 billion last year: the largest single-year decline in the deficit in American history. The list goes on and on. As soon as the Obama 2012 re-election campaign gets cranking on these accomplishments, the mostly unpopular Republican candidates will be almost totally neutered…

…There’s one last reason why the Republicans are so cautious about declaring their intentions. They’re cowards. And they’re self-debunking the mythology that modern Republicans are bold, brave “Reagan-ish” leaders. They’re cowards and so they’re moving at granny-speed rather than light-speed to run against the president – a real leader onto whom they’re projecting their dithering and indecisiveness.

Not that I’m complaining.

Thank you LoriahR and Lovepolitics2008 😉


night everyone

President Obama: “What matters is not wealth, or status, or power, or fame – but rather, how well we have loved, and what small part we have played in bettering the lives of others.”
