Kash for Klunkers to buy Toyotas, failed loans to Solyndra, and the money pit Obamacare. Now every citizen has $50,094 of debt of the now $15 Trillion (seems being illegal has its advantages). How long until we riot and have a run on the banks when we have to start our own austerity measures?

That coupled with those folks who fall for Karl Rove’s lies (Karl Rove – – the Joseph Goebbels of the Republican party.)

The result was stagnation.

For all those who are disappointed in Obama, look at the alternative? Republican control would mean more tax breaks for the rich, more kick backs for large corporations, more power to the special interest groups and goodbye to any type of development for renewable energy.

I think that is worse.

He was prepared to say anything to get elected and you libs down at the Rotman school(none have ever run a business, but hilariously teach business) bought into it hook line and sinker.

Good ole’ U of Toronto libs – suckers to the core.

Still the same old lies, manipulation and deceit coming out of the propaganda apparatus.We voted for a change in our direction, what we got instead was a continuation down the path of destruction. Sad, but to quote George Bush Jr., Fool me once, shame on you, Fool me twice, Shame on Me.
Sorry, but like so many like us, either current or Former Democrats, we want Obama to just go away, you are such a disappointment.I think it might be time to sit this election out, it is just not worth the bother to vote anymore.May all Politicians Live in Interesting Times.

It turned out that Obama is an Elitist fraud.

He turned his back on the left seeking the reasonable prudential path of the middle ground and compromise with evil – thereby showing those that put them there that NOTHING ever changes – and thereby teaching them, “no you can’t.”

In a way, by being a spineless feckless coward, he’s done more damage then Bush.

He’s no the one. He’s the rich’s BOY.

We have President Obama who is a semi-puppet of Wall Street and the large corporations and we have Mitt Romney a total puppet of our “democratic” oligarchy. We should be lucky Obama got as much accomplished ( saving GM, equal pay act, student loans, a watered down health care bill, stimulus bill) the first two years. I agree he capitulated to the GOP and lost such momentum and precious time. How could he and his staff believe he could work with them. Thank God we had Rep. Pelosi as speaker.

In sum, Obama reads the tea leaves and knows he has to play the game to win re-election because of how we fund our campaigns. The “people” should mean something to him; he does indeed need to re-establish his approach and get the matter. But, maybe he fears an “Occupy the White House” tactic ? If the masses revolt, Obama looses. He has to keep them at bay;top down campaign events are the only way for him to win ! How sad.

In doing so, he disappointed the very same base, whom he seeks re-election.
