9. That's flat out not the case. Look for links where I said it. Here's the deal

 

I don't feel it is a necessary act of a citizen in a democracy to rake their current administration over the coals over every little thing going on from one week to the next. I look at progress vs. lack of progress on social and economic issues. Not just ebb and flow of progress--but real progress.

Based on that, 2 of the biggest are health care insurance reform and the equality of GLBT community with regard to marriage and serving in the military openly among other things. Those are big things that aren't going to be easily rolled back.

There are other things I see virtually no progress on. Efforts to reduce CO2 emissions, immigration reform, draw down of our military spending, closing of Guantanamo.

But I am seeing enough progress to not go ape shit every other day like some people seem to enjoy doing.
