Advice for President Obama

Continuing my thesis that all human wisdom can be found in popular music I offer the best advise President Obama will ever get.
It's all right now,
I learned my lesson well.

You see, ya can't please everyone, so ya got to please yourself

~ Ricky Nelson, Garden Party, 1972
The President is going to be accused of being a socialist and terrorist sympathizer no matter what he does so he might as well stop trying to play nice with Rush Limbaugh and John Boehner and get about doing what he thinks is best for the country. He should do what he can through Executive Order and use the "bully pulpit" to pillory, to light up, the Republicans every time they block something in Congress.
Don't take the fire from your eyes
Must make them feel the heat

They build castles underground for the rich and politic elite

~ Men at Work, Underground, 1983
As for the like of Ben Nelson and the handful of congressional Democrats playing both sides, forget about them.
Losing friends
You got nothing to lose,

You don't lose when you lose fake friends

~ Joan Jett, Fake Friends, 1983
