Watching the video of his press conference makes me feel so relieved that we elected a fair, balanced, articulate and intelligent person as President, rather than the cardboard poly-headed grovelling empty suit that ran against him. It will be a pleasure & pride to watch a quality President representing us for the next four years.

But maybe he will be tougher this time around. Rather than all the bipartisan compromise blah blah, he kept saying he was elected to help the middle class and that's what he will do. Subtle but seems to imply taking a tougher line. Gee I hope so.

Best of all was how he tore into Graham and McCain making them look as small, bitter and partisan as they are - as they vowed to make Susan Rice into a Watergate. Watch starting at the 28 min 20 second point:

Obama kept the perfect emotional balance - angry, but still in control of himself.

The only fly in the ointment is now having to deliver on that promise to meet with Romney. He didnt have to do that. Romney has no constituency, he's the walking dead now as far as the Right is concerned. Their devil's deal was strictly business. Since the deal failed, the Right has tossed Romney into the wastebasket just like they toss peanuts to monkeys.
