As E.J.Dionne recently wrote in the Washington Post (and which was republished today in the Oregonian -- see: http://www.oregonlive.com/opinion/index.ssf/2012/05/barack_obama_embodie...):

"Progressives have yearned for President Obama to follow Harry Truman's strategy from the 1948 campaign by giving his Republican opponents hell. Now that Obama is doing just that, his critics say he's not looking presidential.

"As a longtime advocate of the Truman approach (and a fan of Give 'Em Hell Harry and his way of doing politics), I think Obama is doing the right thing. Critics of the battling style miss what Obama needs to get done in this campaign and also ignore the extent to which so many of his foes refuse to treat him in a presidential way. Far better for him to be a fully engaged fighter with passion for what he's saying than a distant, regal figure pretending that the other side is playing by a dainty set of rules...."

Amen! Absolutely! If you bring a flower to a gunfight, you're letting us all down! Hit hard with the truth -- hit early, hit often and keep on hitting! These guys will chew off your arms and slap you with your nonfunctional hands, if they can. They don't care about facts, about the people, and they don't care about anything other than for their own selfish interests.

They aren't fair, they are heartless, and they have won time and time again! Do NOT let them win this time!

Yours,

Caleb, Born in Hawaii and proud of Obama!

Democratic Debates: Is It Time to Get the Corporate TV Stars off the Stage?

Thom plus logo The democratic debate, operating entirely within the context of corporate TV stars' questions and largely Republican frames, shows once again why a for-profit "news" operation shouldn't be running a presidential debate.
