Perhaps you should actually get to know a few liberals, John. As a liberal, I can tell you that I don't think the way that you are always saying I do. What's worse is that 99% of the conservatives that read this mess actually think that you know what you are talking about. You don't. Do I think that the President has done a good job with his first term? Yes in some areas (ending the war in Iraq, making the capture/kill of Bin Laden a priority, AFFORDABLE HEALTHCARE). No in others (employment, budgets, not closing Gitmo). However, I still believe that he did a better job than McCain would have done.
