    I am not so sure that is a bad thing. Do you agree with progressive’s???

    with this one on this issue, yes. it may be the only time i’d agree with a progressive though in spite of my previous post.

    IMO, Unger, like the far left, thinks Obama is too centrist (while
    the right thinks he is too leftist). If history is any example, whoever
    becomes president, by necessity, tends to the center. The necessity being that the president is responsible to ALL the electorate, whether he or they like it or not. I would go so far as to
    suggest that Romney (who historically is no conservative) should he be elected, would invariably move to the center…and you would put up a vid of some disappointed fellow accusing him of being a Rino.
    [probably why we don’t run for the office, huh?] [actually my last
    elected office was assistant treasurer of the Latin Club in HS, and
    the problems of converting the club dues of a quarter into the proper sestercia and denarea led to charges of pecuniary insufficiency…
    a guy that looked like Brutus threatened me] πŸ™‚

    actually, BB, when you think about it, most of these political blogs are run by people who would like to be the President, only as a dictator. for they all talk about how they think government should be thus declaring what their own political platform would be if they were President.

    as for us running for the office, let’s really put power to work. you can take the top spot for the first eight years then we’ll switch offices and i’ll take the top spot for the next eight years. that way we can be in power for 16 years instead of the 8 years πŸ™‚
    so what will our platform be for the next 8 years, Mr. President?

    as for Presidents always going towards the center i think that has to do more with the makeup of Congress more than anything else especially after midterm elections when the opposition takes control of Congress. maybe that is one thing that can be called good about midterm elections. it acts like a check on the power of the presidency.

    I never thought of “as for Presidents always going towards the center i think that has to do more with the makeup of Congress more than anything else especially after midterm elections when the opposition takes control of Congress.” Qualifies as a factor, IMO.
    In addition, the pragmatism of office holders is such that they typically have a base to count on, an opposition which they cannot
    win over…and a pool of voters that swing back and forth, giving us
    the cyclical nature that we have seen since Hamilton and Jefferson took up sides. As for me taking the top spot for 8 years, I suspect it would take you longer than 8 years to get things straightened out
    again. πŸ™‚

    well. my friend, i don’t think there would be much i’d change from your presidency. i’ve learned that when issues needing answers is brought up by the both of us over the years we do a pretty good job of finding the solution together.

    and the way i see it once you and i come to the solution then the only thing left is to convince Congress to pass the bill. and with you as President that makes you the leader of your party. me, i’d only need to convince enough of those on the right necessary to create a majority.
    we’d have it made. πŸ™‚
