On Trusting Obama

I trust President Obama’s instinct and leadership. Unfortunately I am realizing that I don’t trust his judgment in advisors. It is becoming clear that he has surrounded himself with a groupthink crowd of disloyal, corporate-influenced careerists who do not share our long-term progressive vision. They are sheltering the President from hearing progressive viewpoints, and are advising short-term political approaches to problems rather than risking his offering a moral basis for positions that they fear are outside the “mainstream” of Limbaugh-influenced Americans.
