I like this picture

presidents

It’s an illustration of one thing that we’re still doing right – this picture reminds me that for two and a quarter centuries we’ve managed a peaceful transfer of power every few years. That counts for something.

I haz a sad

Thrasybulus (what a wonderful 18th century nom de plume!)at conscience of a progressive  is not happy with a president about whom he was very enthusiastic  not long ago. He speaks for many of us, although, in comments, I disagreed with the ‘messianic’ part. What I see is a failure of leadership and a failure to trust the core principles of progressivism, of liberalism, of the Democratic Party – name it what you will, our president isn’t delivering.
