Truther bad. Birther good?

Okay, at some point Van Jones signed a “truther” petition and as a result he lost his job as advisor to the President on green jobs.

We have heard more than a few republicans question the place of the President’s birth and by doing so, made themselves “birthers”. How many of them have lost their job as a result?

It's all okay if you're a Republican.

O.K., I'm a grown up. I know in the Real World, it takes luck and a lot of hard work to get things done and it doesn't happen overnight.
However, we're seeing a clearer picture of what kind of President we have and it's disturbing. Repeatedly saying to ourselves "Well, he's not a bad as Bush" or "President McCain?" isn't good enough anymore.

History has shown us that the great Presidents have been smart, charismatic, imaginative, articulate, and ruthless. As H.L. Mencken said, "There comes a time in every man's life where he wants to spit on his hands, haul up the black flag, and start slitting throats." Sadly, unless he's beating up on leftists, progressives, gay people or uppity field negroes, Obama is afraid to yell at Rich Old White Guys. Obama doesn't want to be FDR. Obama wants to be Sally Field ("You like me! You really like me!").

Call me skeptical, but I don't think this timid, inoffensive, why-can't-we-all get- along approach is gonna work.

No, I don't regret voting for Obama, but I'm getting a bad feeling that if Howard Dean runs for President in 2012, Mr. Change We Can Believe In isn't going to be my first choice.
