Obama’s having a hard time. There’s a long but interesting article in The New York Times Magazine about the gap between hopes and reality in his administration. I think people are giving him a hard time for nothing. They liked the sound of big visions, but forgot that one person could not deliver that alone, and that even with a crowd, change does not come without pain and the passing of time.
From there, I stumbled across the New York Time’s summary of the tea party, which includes a gallery of video clips of people explaining why they support the tea party. It’s interesting. I suspect one could play ‘spot the episcopalian’, but suppose one should not.
And all of that made me think of this. (sigh)
