Commentary: Those ungrateful liberal Dems

In a recent interview with The Hill, the White House press secretary lashed out at what he labeled "the professional left." Gibbs was talking about liberals, especially those on cable TV, who complain that President Obama has caved to centrists and conservatives on too many issues. Pardon me if I join Gibbs in his bewilderment over the ingratitude of the left. While Obama's performance has been less than perfect, he certainly has delivered in a big way — notably on health care reform, new fair-pay legislation for women, financial regulations for Wall Street, student loan reform and a recovery act that kept the nation from sliding into a depression.
