Obama is bad, but he's not a monster.That may unfortunately be an inherent problem with Obama, I concede. Democrats needed FDR right about now, and they got something between Carter and Wilson.
That's the problem here: at the moment, the racial tension is being fomented more by the CBC, which tilts way left. It "bubbles" EXPLICITLY in their rhetoric. And not in a good or popular way, either.I don't think racial tension is a particularly good topic to go for (though how long does one let it implicitly bubble in the language of the right-wing without addressing it?), but perhaps Democrats should take that tone with things that are more likely to receive wide acceptance.
