"The volume on the ongoing discussion about whether President Obama should face a primary challenge for the 2012 Democratic nomination is constantly being adjusted. When the president compromises on basic premises of progressivism ... the volume goes up. When the president stands strong, however ... sometimes when he simply seems to 'get' that there is a point where compromise becomes capitulation, the talk dies down." [editor's note: If these "challenges" were about making BHO live up to the "end war, promote civil liberties" promises from his campaign, I'd say YAY! Too bad they're mostly about promoting the oxymoronic idea of "progressive economics" - SAT] (09/24/11)
