Further proof, as though any were needed, that nice guys finish last.
Case in point, our president, President Obama. The Republicans, their corporate masters and their low-functioning stooges, of course they spit in his face. They'd behave the same way to any Democratic president, except maybe LBJ, that dude was scary. The Democratic Party, harder, perhaps to understand, but they don't feel the need to lift a finger to help him either. The world press, you'd think some people out there would like him and try to be nice, but no, it's all cap-and-bells out there too.
Is there any room in this world for nice guys anymore? Not at the top, anyway.
