Obama is certainly in the top ten of presidents, simply by virture of all he had to deal with on…

Couple things…

  • How is government LESS transparent than during the Bush Admin?
  • He blocked Keystone. We should appreciate our politicians when they respond to the organizing we do to hold them accountable.
  • Public Option wasn’t doable. He tried. Let’s celebrate the 20 million people who now have healthcare rather than hanging on about a goal that wasn’t politically feasable.
  • How is Gitmo being open his fault? He’s done everything he can while the congress has blocked him at every step.
  • How has he been a disaster for civil rights?

Obama is a progressive. Maybe what you’re looking for is a socialist. They are different. For one thing, a progressive can win enough votes to actually achieve some of their goals.
