Ed Schultz asked this question on air recently, presumably in defense of Obama and the growing unrest with his presidency. It's a good question and I think it deserves our attention.
Could another President have done better?
I have to confess that I am tired of hearing the same excuses. "It's the right wing's fault. It takes a long time.He's afraid of being assassinated. He had to pass something. No one could resist the temptations of being one of ruling elite".......
People want to like him and want him to do well. But it's just as important to understand if and when he is failing.
Let us begin by acknowledging that the right wing is not in power, the Democrats are. In fact it has it has been 40 years since a political party has enjoyed as much power as the Democrats now have.
