    Yep, that damn Bush, a dumb cowboy from TX drove the economy to the brink of bankruptcy and the Democrat controlled Congress was powerless to do anything about it? Do they teach Civics in California or just Marxism?

    no, it isn't it would be about 3.5 trillion today just like the 1.4 trillion of Clinton but rather 3.0 trillion wouldn't be the same today. Only the 7.6 trillion of Obama's is the same today.

    Re: Obama vows to ‘play offense’ against GOP-led Congress

    From the OP:

    "President Obama told Senate Democrats in a private meeting that he plans to "play offense" against the new GOP-controlled Congress, showing little hesitation about clashing with Republicans for the next two years. . . ."

    After the fall of Richmond, Confederate President Jefferson Davis publicly welcomed the opportunity to take the offensive against Federal forces, Confederates having been "freed from the necessity of defending fixed positions." Delusional then, delusional now.

    So we have a Constitutional Scholar who doesn't understand that he isn't king? Congress makes the laws, not the executive Branch. Can you imagine the outrage if GW Bush took this attitude and was as arrogant as to not meet with Congress or to dictate to Congress? Just goes to show how poor of an executive he is and just how incompetent throwing a tantrum when he doesn't get his way. So much for negotiation


    First, Barrack Husein Obama is not a constitutional scholar. He has been a college lecturer on constitutional law, but his understanding of the function of the constitution is flawed through his partisan misuse of it.

    This is an extension of "they won't let me". Remember, his die is cast, his record, as horrid as it is, stands as is, and isn't likely to improve at all in the next two years as the mess he's made on all fronts continues to worsen. He now has only "posterity", his 'legacy', which at best, with the exception of the howling gerbils still in the Obama fan club, is a poor man's pie of failed expectations.

    His career from now on, he is still a young man, is the speaking circuit where, if he wants to command the big fame, he has to has some level of authority in his message. His only excuse for the abortion Obamacare has become is "they wouldn't let me". He is setting the stage for a tail of woe about he was pursued and hounded, investigated and blocked by his "enemies" in Congress and on and on.

    Remember, Barrack Obama's academy award roll has always been savior/martyr, he has gone from "Yes, we can" and "hope and change" to "they won't let me" and "It's Bush/Romney/Bush/Sarah Palin/Ted Cruz fault".

    Following the lead of a failed president, the post goes on the offensive, attacking the messenger, without, apparently even having read the message.

    Sad? I doubt it. But you should be depressed as ****.

    Seven years after having been elected on "hope and change" you have no hope and the only change there has been is a complete refusal to work with congress and listen to the message of the American people and get the ****ing country working again.

    Instead, you poke fun at the OP, while ignoring the many disasters of this administration, and how hopeless is your president. Nothing is ever accomplished through confrontation, at best, even the civility of the courts delays real change by years or even decades.

    You also ignore the will of the people, whose voice was clear to most professional political scientists, they want these age old problems fixed, they do not want petty, superficial, name calling feuds, they want answers.

    Sad? No, perhaps borderline suicidal knowing those answers are not even going to be addressed.

    Every President in recent memory has expanded the power of the office over their predecessor, and when a Republican takes office in 2017 he'll do the same. And you'll be leading the excuse train.
    Excellent "change" there, eh?

    This is so sad.

    Seven years...seven long confrontational years down the road with NOT ONE sign of progress on the most pressing social issues in the country and all you can do is whine about a guy who has not signed a law in close to a decade.

    Bush. Bush. Bush. Bush. Bush. Bush. Bush. Bush. Bush.

    Where is the change in that? Hmm? Wasn't this dark and mysterious savior supposed to be different? wasn't there a "new deal atmosphere" according top MSNBC?

    And please, no one needs to "try telling" Americans anything anymore, they spoke just a few months ago and you lost. as in having been outed as liars, fools and miscreants. The American people do not want you and your lame excuses of "Bush did it too", or even the still furious hate for...now please sit down, the two words can cause seizures in Obama stooges....hate for, Sarah Palin!

    Fact, there is NO progress whatsoever on illegals.

    Fact, the nation is more divided on political lines than ever.

    In 2020 there will still be 50 million people without medical care, 2/3 more than live in Canada.

    Fact, the nation is more divided on race than in four decades.

    fact, the country is heading to $24 trillion in debt next year due to Obama spending.

    THESE are the issues the American people want addressed, not more empty rhetoric about "they won't let me"......

    Clearly, neither your nor the White House nor the DNC speak for the American people any more, so stop acting like you're even popular.

    If anything happens during the next two years to cause the state economies to fail, the conservative that occupy the majority of state legeslatures will have no one else to blame but themselves.

    I am sure that if anything happens in those Red states we will have people like you placing blame like you always do now. Learn to accept responsibility for the poor choices you have made including your votes for Obama and then move on. Doing the same thing over and over again will generate the same miserable results.
