With the Media we have, right now, even if the Repubs do exactly what Ann is suggesting and let Obama have everything he wants, the Right will still take the blame when there's failure. The media will never, I repeat NEVER, accept that it's their side causing the problem. They'll acknowledge that there is a problem, but the culprits will ALWAYS be the Republicans. Unless we replace the media. I mean the news and information media, and entertainment media, and I mean in all forms; written, visual, aural, online, you name it. Conservatives have got to learn how to spread their message and make it the common reason of the age, like it used to be.
