If you backed Obama and want to see real change continue, now is not the time to give up because it’s not as easy as you thought it would be. Now is the time to oppose the passionate intensity of his opponents with the reasoned conviction that elected him.
Remember: we are the ones we’ve been waiting for. Are we really going to substitute pique for purpose and ennui for hope now? By all means criticize when necessary, as I have. But he’s the best we’ve got, and we are lucky to have him. To paraphrase Mr Krugman this morning, Mr. Obama may not be the politician of our dreams, but his enemies are definitely the stuff of our nightmares.
