Musings and pontifications from a reality based progressive

The chance he deserves

Posted by Greg on January 17, 2009

Chris Bowers discusses what it means to give Obama a fair chance.

  1. If there were campaign promises that President-elect Obama made that you did not like, you probably want to oppose them and prevent them from becoming reality / policy. When it comes to such promises, it is reasonable that you do not want to give him a chance to do this.
  2. If there were campaign promises President-elect Obama made, and which he appears to be working toward, you probably want to see those promises now become laws / policy. It is reasonable to give him a chance to do this.
  3. If there were campaign promises you liked from Obama, but which he does not seem to be acting upon, it is reasonable to push him to make those promises a reality rather than just “giving him a chance.”
