It's amazing -- you are at your most moderate when the situation is at its most hypothetical.
Assuming you're old enough, you probably hated Clinton at the time and thought he was trying to destroy America, much like you think Obama is now.
You look back now, far removed from those hyperbolic emotions, and you're like "you know... Clinton wasn't that bad. He was a liberal we conservatives could talk to, unlike this dickbag."
History's repeating itself. You have a liberal in office with a proven track record of cooperation and willingness to accept ideas from both sides of the aisle, a centrist presidency that, once again, the GOP has successfully convinced itself is trying to destroy America with socialist policies (el oh el).
If Obama wins reelection, and the unemployment numbers fall like they're supposed to in 2014, you'll look back on his Presidency in 2024 when you're hating on some new Democratic President that you're certain is trying to destroy America and you're going to say "that Obama... he wasn't so bad. He was a liberal we conservatives could talk to, unlike this dickbag."
Break the cycle, RINGLEADER. Break the cycle.
