AND OBAMA? A mixed bag. I feel like he's gotten some things done. My complaint as someone who leans left: too often politicians forget to make a bill better. You want to keep their feet to the flame. But when he says, through Robert Gibbs, the "professional left should stop whining," that's frustrating because it does sound like what we railed against the last eight years. And while I think he's done some good stuff, I think the fact that Guantanamo is still open is creepy, and I'd like to see him more open to the realities [in Afghanistan]. While I have frustration, I also don't think he's like Bush. When people say that I'm like, "Really? You really think he's a lot like Bush?"
IF ONE WATCHED TELEVISION NEWS ALL DAY, ONE MIGHT THINK ARMAGEDDON IS AROUND THE CORNER . . . I'm afraid of people who are afraid. They're the ones lashing out saying we have to deport everybody, and "I'm eventually going to become a rich person so I don't want these tax breaks to expire," and the president's out to get us and he's the devil and he's a Muslim and a socialist and a fascist — which, by the way, you can't be all those things. You need to pick one and hate him for that reason.
