Anyone remember back when the Left gave Bush unmitigated (http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=view_all&address=104x3637841) shit (http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=view_all&address=389x3460440) about (http://demopedia.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=view_all&address=389x190919) the (http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=view_all&address=104x2442784) phrase (http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=view_all&address=104x2869119) "hard (http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=view_all&address=104x4233486) work (http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=view_all&address=102x4356741#4357097)?" Well, guess what (http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=view_all&address=439x331149): being the President is hard work:

I'll say this for our president
I'm glad I don't have his job.

Can you say, "Lonely at the top"?

I knew you could.

Gee...funny how that didn't apply to Bush, innit?

1. I recced....and your post remains at zero.
Some wish this president failure. Sad. Unlike the last President. NO ONE wished him failure, right? Never, ever happened on DU, did it?

6. Well said. I admire him so much for his coolness in the face of adversity.
I would have been screaming "Uncle" long ago. Just imagine living with all the criticism...damned if you do and damned if you don't.

Dealing with a normal Republican party would be irritating enough, but to have this "new version"...the "No" Party, plus the Tea Baggers screaming in your face each day, it would be too much.

He takes it in stride. I find that truly amazing. If only he had actually done something other than issue a couple of pointless, empty-rhetoric proclamations from the East Room, you might have some sort of point there.

9. Amen. I feel so bad for him -granted it "comes with the job" but it's been
one crisis after another since he's taken office, and on top of that having to put up with being hogtied because we're outnumbered in Congress.

I'm reminded of the famous JFK photo (which of course I can't find), black and white, I think, of him gazing pensively out the window of the oval office. You just get the feeling he's all alone in the world, as ultimately every President is. That's how I feel about Obama now - so much pressure, so much wrong, so much he wants to do but can't -- all alone in the world. Yeah, unlike Bush, who never had any challenges in his Presidency and always had all of Congress on his side.

Oh, wait....



Their duplicity never ceases to astound me. It really shouldn't surprise me any more, but somehow it still does.

He may have to since he may not get the Internet "kill-switch" (http://technologizer.com/2011/02/02/internet-kill-switch-efforts-in-us-on-life-support/) (pretty neat PC post-Tuscon civil nickname there) that the likes of Joe Lieberman, Susan Collins, and Tom Carper sponsored. WTF is wrong with these people?

I know they are dumb, useless, out-of-touch pieces of gibbon feces, but still, WTF? You kill the Internet here in the US, and Egypt is going to look like a playground brawl.

He has mismanaged every crisis he gets near and for 2 years he had both houses of congress and still has one. Poor baby but thank Gia that he still has time to play golf, pick up games of basketball and campaign. :rolleyes:
