And while I haven't completely agreed with how Obama has performed I do give him a break for the fact that he had to come in an clean up so much mess from Bush and others. I can't think of a president who inherited as many crises as President Obama has since probably FDR during the Great Depression/WWII era. Americans have become use to changes happening over-night but you can't endure 30 years of ignoring major problems without it taking awhile to fix. You can't emerge from the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression over-night when it took 30 years of burning the candle at both ends to fall into this economic abyss. Especially an economy as big and as complex as ours. It's a bit like trying to turn a giant cargo ship around despite going full speed in the opposite direction. It doesn't happen immediately.
It's not that the Republicans are offering much of an alternative. Their plan as far as I can see it is to literally oppose every single thing Obama is trying to do to keep him from doing anything helpful for America. Why? It's a cynical bet that if they just let stall and obstruct enough that the American people will quickly tire of the inaction and in frustration and exasperation vote in the Republicans as the default "other choice." So, Michael Steele has jumped the shark not only for himself but perhaps for the entire Republican party. I say that because the Steele delusion is so laughably made-up it thrusts their obstructionism by deception game into the spotlight to where it's obvious to anyone even just somewhat clued into the politics of the last decade.
