I am cautiously optomistic.

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.

Time to Rethink the War on Terror

When Eric Holder eventually steps down as Attorney General, he will leave behind a complicated legacy, some of it tragic, like his decision not to prosecute Wall Street after the financial crisis, and his all-out war on whistleblowers like Edward Snowden.

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"In an age rife with media-inspired confusion and political cowardice, we yearn for a decent, caring, deeply human soul whose grasp of the problems confronting us provides a light by which we can make our way through the quagmire of lies, distortions, pandering, and hollow self-puffery that strips the American Dream of its promise. How lucky we are, then, to have access to the wit, wisdom, and willingness of Thom Hartmann, who shares with us here that very light, grown out of his own life experience."
Mike Farrell, actor, political activist, and author of Just Call Me Mike and Of Mule and Man
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann is a literary descendent of Ben Franklin and Tom Paine. His unflinching observations and deep passion inspire us to explore contemporary culture, politics, and economics; challenge us to face the facts of the societies we are creating; and empower us to demand a better world for our children and grandchildren."
John Perkins, author of the New York Times bestselling book Confessions of an Economic Hit Man
From Unequal Protection, 2nd Edition:
"Hartmann combines a remarkable piece of historical research with a brilliant literary style to tell the grand story of corporate corruption and its consequences for society with the force and readability of a great novel."
David C. Korten, author of When Corporations Rule the World and Agenda for A New Economy
