    I at least saw some effort. I saw republicans saying the number one priority was to make sure he failed. However, to be clear, I don't think this problem is limitied to one party. Both aprties suffer from it, and noth bases see the word as a dirty word. They are all wrong IMHO.

    You sound sooo confused -- I lauded nothing.

    I asked if businesses in the U.S. could thrive without the military to secure the nation?

    A question which has endured several strawmen thrown at it, yet it remains unanswered.

    I know what the answer is, don't you??

    There is no evidence for that.

    You did, you cited something you oppose as the reason for success.

    I asked if businesses in the U.S. could thrive without the military to secure the nation?

    And I answered it. Business would exist in this country regardless of its govt or the military that protects it.

    Obamacare nationalizes a third of the economy. That's evidence enough....not to mention raising taxes.

    How much compromise with Republicans went into Obamacare?

    No leader can work with a political party which publicly takes the stated position of blocking every one of said leader's actions,

    That is not a reflection on Obama's leadership skills but a reflection on Republican values -- which remain, party before country.

    The entire Mandate is a republicna idea. But let's not forget, republicans were invited, but once they stated clearly they were only interested in seeing Obama fail, then and only then were they excluded. What happened is what happened. They could have come to the table in earnest. If they had, I'd have been with them. But they did not. What little effort there was came from Obama.
