So you're looking for ways to fire up you base, Mr. President?
I've got an idea.
Stop looking for a consensus that will not emerge until you get out in front of the problems, instead of just watching them unfold.

You don't have to re-invent the proverbial wheel to fire up your base. You just have to do the job the American people elected you to do. If you need an incentive, apart from avoiding a one-term presidency, here's a reminder of why it's so important.
