It seems like folks are getting tired of waiting on the Change that was supposed to be coming to America when Barack Obama got elected president. Most everyone was happy to be patient for a while because the economy sucks so hard right now that it has to be the first priority.
Health Care, however, is a pressing concern since so many of us are without insurance. Then there's Don't Ask Don't Tell, Marriage Equality, Lobbyists and all those big ideas that haven't really gotten anywhere despite the fact that Obama certainly gives good speech.
If there is a similarity between political and sexual performance, then Obama's first six months are kind of like foreplay. I still have complete confidence in Barack's ability to perform, but eventually you have to move on passed foreplay and get down to business.
Perhaps America as a whole is not fast like a floosie when it comes to sweeping societal change. Some folks have to be seduced much longer than a garden variety floosie, so six months might not be enough seduction and foreplay time for some people - like Moderate Republicans and Contrary Democrats. And then we must consider that some folks are plain old whores and want to get the particulars of the deal nailed down solid before moving ahead to the main event. Negotiating a mutually beneficial arrangement can be tricky, especially with dedicated whores.
Not that I know anything about whores and johns in real life, but I'm not the first person to compare politicians to whores. It's common knowledge that until certain parties are assured something benefits them personally, nothing's getting done.
Given that Obama has to work harder to get some folks in bed with him than others, it seems reasonable to give the man until the fall to drive the deal home. That doesn't change the fact that for many of us, it's damn frustrating to wait around on a bunch of party poopers, slow pokes, nervous nellies and general butt heads. Eventually, Obama is going to have to ignore their yammering.
Being as Congress goes on summer vacation from the beginning of August until Labor Day, and we can be sure nothing major is going to happen in the few weeks before vacation. Since it always takes some time to get settled into work mode after vacation, that brings us to about October before Change really comes to America.
If Michelle is telling the truth, then we can have faith - but it would be nice to stop hoping and see the real deal.
