For once Morford gets it right
I hate to admit it, but I actually agree with Chronicle columnist Mark Morford's piece on the left's preposterous "disappointment" with President Obama. Morford's columns on SFGate are usually full of New Age twaddle and about how clueless Republicans and the religious right are, not exactly challenging insights here in Progressive Land. But his "Obama, the great disappointment?" gets it right in spite of his always-annoying prose.
Morford links a useful list posted on Daily Kos of 90 of the president's initiatives and accomplishments thus far, compiled by Robert P. Watson, Coordinator of American Studies at Lynn University. Many of the items listed aren't really accomplishments per se, but merely stated intentions. Still there's enough substance on the list to make me pleased that I voted for Obama and glad that he's our president.
Today's BeyondChron piece by Randy Shaw is a good local example.
And the ultra-left folks at Fog City, who seem to think that blowhard Michael Moore's windy, wrong-headed open letter to the president is worth posting.
