This reminds me of the Hans Christian Anderson, "The Emperor's New Clothes". The Emperor parades through the streets, with no clothes and the people pretend that he is OK. It is only a small naive child who says that the Emperor has no clothes.
The Republicans have said that Obama has "no clothes", but the Democrats refuse to accept this. Surely, the President has accomplished great things, But the people remain unhappy with him But everyone seems to be clueless about what he can do with a Republican controlled Congress.
Now, it has been said that: the first task of a leader to "keep hope alive" (Jesse Jackson, Joe Batten). Let me suggest that he use his BULLY PULPIT to return to his "Audacity of Hope". The Audacity of Hope was the title of his book, but some how that sense of hope got lost. Here are some suggestions for returning to hope, ASAP:
1) This could be the subject of a book, but let me first suggest the ideas contained on this rough, unedited blog, below. (I can be reached at: pearle (at) writeme.com )
2) I suggest that Pres.Obama admit to specific mistakes in judgment and style to show humility, to restore the confidence of the people in his leadership ability.
