    I prefer us to encourage #1 - and avoid #2.
    Don't know how valid #2 is, but #1 is important, and will lead to someone being blamed. I don't see any real way around that.

    Blinders work that way. Sadly.

    We haven't been attacked in a major way by terrorists since Obama took office. We are at war. We shouldn't be changing leadership during war. We should stay the course until peacetime.

    God bless America.

    This is why we need popular initiatives at the federal level.
    President Clinton wanted to get rid of the Glass-Steagal Act. It was a Republican wish since President Reagan. With the entire Republican Party's support (with Gramm as lead), President Clinton managed to convince all but 8 of the Senate to pass it's abolition. They did and he signed us into a world of economical corporate ****. President Obama has done nothing to insist that "change" occur. It starts with a leader or at least a spokeperson. He is the President and has every right and duty to insist on what is best for this nation. It's why he is elected. He certainly can't change law on his own, which is what we agree on, but he can certainly open his mouth.

    I think if our politicians stay out of military affairs, we can drop a new President in the White House every four years without harming our missions abroad. That's one hell of a "if" though.

    Actually, I wouldn't want the military to function without civilaian leadership.

    using that logic, we should've ammended the rules and allowed Bush to remain president, since we were in a war. just saying...
