That's where it is. He thinks he has earned a second term. He's done nothing. He's provided nothing for the country. But he thinks he's doing a good job.
People used to talk about Bush and how maybe he was drinking again. Maybe we worried about the sobrieity of the wrong White House occupant?
How out of it do you have to be to think you have done a job worthy of four more years?
What has he accomplished?
The economy hasn't improved. The wars go on and he's added to them. Does he need four more years to destroy Social Security? I can't think of anything else he has left to do. But maybe he just wants to make everything worse.
I trust he has the ability to do that.
I also don't underestimate his ability to declare war on Iran. I figure if he gets a second term we can count on that.
Is there any group that supported him (publicly supported him) that hasn't been stabbed in the back?
Women, LGBT, auto workers, union workers, single-payer advocates, peace activists . . .
I can't think of one group he hasn't stabbed in the back, not one.
