There have been two Democratic administrations in the past 40 years (prior to the current, putatively Democratic one).
One of them was weak, indecisive, self-involved, malaise-mongering. It lasted one term, and did great things... for the Republican Party.
The other, while flawed, was energized, smart and combative. It swam against the prevailing tide, and yet managed to last two terms and deliver unprecedented peace and prosperity.
Guess which of those models our current occupant has run away from as fast as he can? Guess which predecessor he has mirrored -- up to and including a reflexive desire to self-flagellate and appease enemies?
