    When it comes to energy, immigaration, deficit, math, science, invest in infrastructure we got a lot more work to do. If we get frustrated and cynical about democracy, we need to come together and help. He can’t do it by himself. We’ve gotten alot done, healthcare, clean energy, DADT overturned, 2 women on teh SCOTUS, let’s keep working folks! The young folks keep pushing and shoving to keep things going.

    Please tell me who else is going to sit on a stool and speak about the issuses with common sense like our president? The rest of his party ***LOOKING@CONGRESS** needs to be taking notes and following suit. They need to be holding town halls and breaking down this common sense information to their consituents.
