It could be....
But he does not seem to be Bush ideologue... I hope

Goldman Sachs owns both. I genuinely don't see any difference between the two, although, if pressed, I'd vote for Obama.

Quote:
In presidential politics, should the grading be on a curve? Specifically, assessing President Obama, is it correct to judge his policies on the merits, or in the broader context of legislative realities and the elephant-in-the-room fact of the looming election?

The answer to this question is the difference between a solid B-plus and, on my more charitable days, a gentleman’s C.

Don't get me wrong, rick, I think president Obama still is the front-runner -- that is one of the advantages of being able to compaign on the taxpayer's dime. But, what we have to remember is that Romney is just finishing of about half a year of Repub potential candidates tearing away at each other in front of an electorate paying little attention to the antics, whereas Obama has not had to engage in that kind of stuff. However, Romney and the Repubs are starting to put him in the spotlight, and it is a spotlight that does not show well for Obama. It will begin to take its toll and it will get vicious. That is because when people have so little to differentiate themselves, they have to rely on faux outrage, indignation, and just plain ol' hatred to hide the fact. Buckle up. :-)
Yours,
Issodhos

Rick, you may wish to read a short ebook, Beyond Outrage by Robert Reich. Some good ideas.
