It is funny how some in the Media complain when we have a Do-nothing Congress, and then turn around and complain if the President wants Congress to do Somehing constructive for the whole of humanity and say, not so fast, it cannot be done, and so again they become a Do-Nothing Congress!

I say Congress has the smarts and ingenuity to come up with a workable plan, after all, that is their job to come up with plans to benefit all and not the few....

It can be done and I admire and like a Leader who can inspire and visiualize the possibility, and who is not negative and pessimistic. We must be wary of the those Republicans who continually say not so fast, and that he (the Pres. is losing support), because the more they say it, they think, the more this will become a manifestation. They do not really care about humanity but about their political careers and their cushy salaries, power and perks. The U.S. is in the sorry situation it is in because of politicians like this, who have taken and given nothing back to humanity.

Those reporters who care deeply about the U.S. and its future must speak up for the possiblities which must be implemented if we are to get back to a U.S. that is whole and healthy and prospersous. Congress should manifest laws which sustain the whole and not be allowed to do nothing or to think they can do nothing. Pres. Obama leads by Expecting Congress to do their Job. It is time to forge a new pathway and leave the past failures and neglect in the past.
