The Congress has done their job, it has been the Senate, with Reid at the forefront leading the charge to do nothing.
Play a blame game and look for more ways to take your freedom is the status quo. we are a divided nation because of race driven propaganda that the liberal media has stirred the pot with.

That is all that has gone on since the day he was elected to his first term. All the Birther BS, and demands for birth certificate, school records, etc. I haven’t seen this kind of behavior in 60 plus years.

It is time the Republicans get used to the idea that we have a mixed race President, who so far is doing a better job than the last President inspite of Republican opposition.

One virtue of the electoral college system is that it limits the amount of damage that such tactics can do. Had the courts not pushed back, the Republicans could have won the popular vote by racking up absurd advantages in states like Texas, where their electoral college win was never in doubt. As it was, the confusion from their voter suppression attempts may have cost Obama hundreds of thousands of popular votes.

The election is over and Obama won both the electoral college and the popular vote. Democrats won an advantage in the Senate. However, the House remains in Republican hands. Why? Did you really get to vote for your choice of Representative? Most of us had no real effective vote due to gerrymandering. Most Representatives chose their voters through gerrymandering rather than having voters in reasonably drawn districts make a legitimate choice. That is the systematic problem in American politics that needs to be addressed, not the electoral college system.

I find articles like this interesting, why weren’t any like this written when the Democrats refused to work with Bush?

I have read how Republicans saying they would work to make Obama a “one term president” meant they were all “haters. Are people suggesting the Democrats did not work to try their best to make Bush a one term president also?

Democrats constantly complain that Republicans hate Obama and that they do not “support the president”. Odd, I do not recall seeing a lot of Democrat love for Bush or them doing anything to support Bush policy.

I am baffled how each party can do the same identical thing, but somehow its OK when one party does it, but some form of crime when the other does it!

His answer to failed policies (shoveling debt-financed money at unions and cronies for ‘job creation’) is to do more of what already failed. His obsession over dubious environmental ideas is driving up prices for electricity and gasoline (he as much as said he would put coal companies out of business). He doesn’t really care about the environment, witness his lack of response to Fukushima – he could have been a hero by forcing Japan to accept an emergency international solution, but he did nothing. He’s the most anti-rights/anti-liberty president in history, with his own assassination list and the power to seize and incarcerate Americans with no recourse to due process. He and his sick DHS have brought in a nascent police state, with pronouncements and policies that Bush would have been skewered over. His health care plan is now estimated to cost 2-3X as much as promised, and every aspect of it is behind schedule.
He’s failed utterly, in spite of every advantage – a veto proof majority in congress, and a sickeningly sycophantic press. But of course every one of his manifest failures is someone else’s fault, in the eyes of the left. Like little children, they are never to blame for their misdeeds. Everything bad that ever happens or has ever happened is someone else’s fault. Most Americans would gladly break the country in two, one part for the left, one for the right. But in a few years the leftists would be scurrying away from their own like rats. And of course the left would never accept such a break – their leaders know that their ideas must be total: everyone must be forced to bend, or people will flee to freer lands. That’s why history calls them totalitarians. Even those totalitarians with a ‘rightist’ bend share the critical element with the left: worship of the state as the fulcrum of human life.

Can we all agree to start loudly ridiculing anyone who reads an opinion piece and then posts a comment calling it biased?
