While a POTUS does have a bully pulpit to push his agenda, I think it a sad state of affairs when voters believe a POTUS has to 'care' about personal issues of citizens. Why? Because it treats the electorate like children, and that's not a POTUS' job. Issues like economic policy, nat'l defense, foreign affairs, budget matters, and SCOTUS appointments are just about all the Constitutional concerns assigned to a POTUS.
'Boutique' personal issues are best left to the states or local govt., which can be much more effective - and accountable - than a gynormous federal bureaucracy thousands of miles away.7 months ago

It's a curious phenomenon: When liberals / democrats won't compromise or 'moderate' their views, these liberals / democrats are often characterized as 'progressive' or 'pragmatic' - champions of the little guy.
When a conservative / republican won't compromise or 'moderate' their views, these conservatives / republicans are often characterized as 'partisan' or 'bigots' - lap dogs for eebil rich people.
I sure hope something changes.9 months ago
