In-Between Politics


Consistent animosity toward the man who won the election and is doing a pretty good job, as with the Republicans versus Pres.Obama, is like trying to force their way into having won a game which they have not won by claiming that “the American people” don’t want his legislation.

It seems to me that if you are an opponent of a man of his obvious education, intelligence, and good humor, but with whom you disagree, you would do well to support him when you can, and oppose him without animosity. It might come to serve you better on either or both sides in the future.

Thinking seriously, without rage, one wonders if this country might be better off divided into two countries after all.

The anger expressed on TV does not sound like two neighbors trying to work out a problem. Why not give a newly elected President cooperation and support for the first year? If it seems to be working out, continue your support through his four years. Then, if the opposition really thinks it can do better, make your try for office, don’t just try to make it harder for him.
