S far as what he has gained, I suspect Obama does have a long term strategy, and it is way too early to see what it is or if it is working. One of the big problems with you guys on the far far right and your multiple daily whine threads about Obama is that it is too early for anything Obama has done to do any good. Will any good come of this? Well, I dunno, the process is just starting. I prefer to throw my hissy fits once things fail, not pre-emptively like you all have been doing.
