    Obama's biggest challenge is now against the growing number within his own party who are running away from his inept far left big government neo-con progressivism.

    With 2010 hovering over them like an ever darkening cloud of voter discontent, these Democrats are now willing to challenge Obama publicly in the hopes that it will secure enough support back home from the majority of anti-Obama Democrat feelings.

    Very rare to see a member of a President's own party rebuking his positions, especially just over a year into his first term!

    The Hill: Sen. Blanche Lincoln (D-Ark.), who faces a tough reelection fight, asked Obama to push back against "people at the extremes" of both parties, especially against Democrats "who want extremes."

    The prime directive is to get re-elected. Idealism gets thrown under the bus if it costs votes.

    Oh you mean like 08 and Mcsame, you may be right, the reason he lost was he turned right with Sarah the brain dead, the country is middle of the road and none of these fucking assholes seem to realize it

    When now newly "retired" Criss Dodd (who has American protestors on his lawn) is throwing big spending Obama under the bus there is problems.

    But, I really think the biggest challenge Obama has right now is fixing is teleprompter--:lol::lol:

    I didn't really see her "rebuking" any of Obama's positions. But make things up, if it makes you feel better.

    As well they should, as they're likely to lose some seats.
    But, Obama's biggest challenge is discontent within the Democratic Party? Puleez. Look at the challenges facing this nation: Two wars, the worst recession in 70 years, soaring costs of government, a trillion and a half in deficit spending, and dissent within his own party is his greatest challenge?

    Meanwhile a significant portion of the population still believes all the tired old lies: Obama is an illegal from Kenya, he is a Marxist, he is a Muslim, his friends are terrorists, he is anti American, and so on.

    Obama currently heads up the government of a superpower that is fast becoming a third world country.

    She is coming very close to calling out Obama as a Democrat extremist!!

    Quite shocking the Obama backlash brewing in his own party.

    And what of Chris Dodd's public anti-Obama agenda comments??

    Remarkable!!

    If it makes you feel better, believe that. But I don't see that at all.
