There is nothing wrong with pursuing a dream, even if the dream might be unrealistic. But when it becomes obvious that the dream is not realistic, it’s time to abandon it.
President Barack Obama was right, at first, to pursue bipartisan politics and try to allow Republicans to share in his dream for America. The problem is that Republicans’ strategy wasn’t anywhere close to his dream.
They had no desire to help him with doing what is right for America. They, from Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell to the Tea Party crowd, have openly set as their goal to make Obama fail in anything he attempts to do. They have been the Grand Obstructionist Party and have been very successful at it.
It is time for Obama to forget about including Republicans in his efforts to change America and start concentrating on doing what’s good and necessary for the people who put him in the White House. It is time to fight, not appease. It is time to point out that he is more interested in serving the middle class and needy than being cowed by the rich and radical.
In other words, “Enough already.”
