Reply: "But he was elected president because he was black!"
Sister in law: "Its all the Republicans fault!"

Talking to her is sort of reminiscent to listeing to that video production interviewing Obama voters after the 2008 election "How Obama Got Elected". Same with any Democrat.)

Just a few winters ago my wife and I took our daughters to witness the inauguration of a man who had campaigned on hope and embodied possibility. We are pretty immune to political euphoria, but, circulating among the footsore pilgrims, we could imagine our country had embraced the idea that we were all in this together. When the newly sworn-in president congratulated us all on choosing unity of purpose over recriminations and worn-out dogmas, we wanted to believe that we had done exactly that.



Inaugurations, of course, are ceremonial ephemera. After the “Ask not” comes the Bay of Pigs. After the 60-plus approval rating comes the 9-plus unemployment rate. But it is worth pondering how we got from that day to this partisan clamor, how we lost that sense of common cause, and how it became a consensus of the commentariat that Barack Obama is in serious danger of being a one-term president.

You can't have 2 wars and a tax cut at the same time and expect to be prosperous.
