100 daze

By Creature

What's struck me most about the first 100 days with our new Democratic president has nothing to do with the president himself. For anyone paying attention, he's pretty much what was advertised. What does stand out for me is the opposition's opposition. I never expected a smooth ride, but I also didn't anticipate this level of vitriol. With no more moderates in the GOP to temper the idiocy, the conservative right has had a field day. From message-less cries of socialist, to fascist, to tea-bagging, to the end of the world as we know it, it's been quite a ride these last 100 days. Thankfully, despite their megaphone, their pissing on the Obama parade hasn't taken hold with the population at large. If anything, it has backfired, and that bodes well for the president's next 100.
