    It's both though. Because there were divisions within his own party, he naturally had to temper his own desires and expectations towards the middle. I understand that a lot of Republicans feel that they were simply ignored during the first two years, but my point is that despite the fact that the Dems controlled both chambers, Obama didn't have leeway to do whatever the hell it was he wanted to do.

    He promised to change the culture, have transparency, kick out the lobbyist, we're going to work together etc. none of what he promised regarding these remarks did he deliver. "Hope and Change" didn't happen.
    Agreed.

    He adds a new tax with the 9-9-9 plan while drastically lowering the tax that is paid now, also whoever the guy is writing this article destroys his credibility with the 666 thing which is probably why the link was ignored by the posters in the forum in the first place.

    He supported the idea of TARP, but not the way it was handled or distributed.

    He served on a Board of Directors. That doesn't mean he "steered" anything. He was one of many opinions and even the linked article is only the opinons of a lawyer behind a lawsuit that went nowhere.

    Crappy editting. I saw the actual video in which he provided a plan to the problems then. The same plan won't work now, because the problems are different.

    He supported Romney because of his business record.

    His plan for Afghanistan is to take what the Generals have to say into account, unlike the pres now, and make decisions based on what they say.

    He said he supported 90% of what's in the Patriot Act. Which most politicians do.

    There it has been addressed and been proven irrelevant or wrong. Move on.
    Also DA, I'd like to point out that Obama DID take what his generals said into account. There's a difference, however, between taking what they say into account, and doing whatever it is they tell you.

    Agreed, I just think Military generals might no a little more about the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
    If you strike me down, I'll become more powerful than you could possibly imagine.

    That's exactly what I meant but you explained it better than I did.

    Mr. Cain appears to be a nice person, but he is unelectable and a waste of time in the national political arena. Yes, he knows how to run a business (KFC for example) but "the chicken king"? Really?

    Really now, Obama, with his failures, maybe it's because he didn't run anything.
