Im thinking that these desperate repulsicans will do anything to stop Obama being a successful president. But hopefully they will not succeed. We need to make sure that Pres Obama knows what the People want and that the People keep up making sure he does the right thing. Hopefully he will go after all these fossil fuel giants and please stop exporting LNG to Asian countires. Here in Oregon, there is a proposed export terminal by a foreign country that wants to run a 234 pipe line through forests, private properties, etc. to ship LNG into an area that is a tsunami innundation zone. Lets hope Pres Obama doesnt let this happen.

I think not. I think that with determined, with strong leadership, the President has staked out his vision and the Republicans as political wing of the uber class never let us forget theirs, I expect some achievement these first two years of his second term but most will occur in 24 months when Americans send a majority of Dems to the House and a super majority to the Senate. Then will he cement his legacy and set the stage for the unprecedented election of the next Democratic President of the United States. I can wait.

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Never one to shy away from the truth, Thom Hartmann’s collected works are inspiring, wise, and compelling. His work lights the way to a better America."

From Screwed:
"I think many of us recognize that for all but the wealthiest, life in America is getting increasingly hard. Screwed explores why, showing how this is no accidental process, but rather the product of conscious political choices, choices we can change with enough courage and commitment. Like all of Thom’s great work, it helps show us the way forward."
Paul Loeb, author of Soul of a Citizen and The Impossible Will Take a Little While
From Screwed:
"Hartmann speaks with the straight talking clarity and brilliance of a modern day Tom Paine as he exposes the intentional and systematic destruction of America’s middle class by an alliance of political con artists and outlines a program to restore it. This is Hartmann at his best. Essential reading for those interested in restoring the institution that made America the envy of the world."
