    Please DO NOT tell him how we all vote at least twenty or thirty times in each election and that is the only way that a Democrat can win. We have to keep that a secret.

    Me too. My biggest disappointment and frustration with Obama is that he entered to office entirely too naive. He wanted to create a legacy of being a uniter and spent the first 3 years of his Presidency trying to appease and work with a party who made it clear from day 1 that their #1 Priority was to oppose everything that he did and try to make him a 1 term President. He should have gone on the offensive years ago. He had the backing of the American people to pursue and agenda of change in Washington and he failed to do so. A missed opportunity for sure.

    I completely agree. Obama at heart is NOT a street fighting man. And that contributed significantly to his lack of success.

    The thing I will never be able to figure out is his hiring of Rahm Emanuel and his reputation as a guy who would kick an opponent in the cojones and then spit on him for good measure to run the White House and then NOT let him do it according to his own dictates. It made no sense and was a big neon sign to everybody that Obama was not a fighter. And the GOP soon knew this was going to be easy.

    But then, when has the GOP ever been smart?
    Doesn't matter what they run on, they'll give us more of the same. More expansion of government, more Presidential power, more surveillance. Then they'll run on the same things again.

    If Obama could pass an executive order to eliminate Congress altogether, he'd have it done by dinner.

    And what exactly did he spend it on? Keep trying, Disney, to make the rest of the country the utopia known as Kalifornia with its massive debt and entitlement programs. The home of the true free lunch paid for by the taxpayers who remain stupid enough to live there.

    Wow, how are things in that alternative world you live in. Did you see him belittle Paul Ryan and John McCain? ACA was created behind closed doors, the stimulus was a bailout of all his supporters. I cannot believe how naďve, gullible, and poorly informed you are. He had entire control of the Congress and told the Republicans, I won, you lost basically get over it. Now there is a compromising statement.

    You have a very selective and leftwing memory.

    Wow, in reading the libs talk to each other about how Obama was a disappointment to them because he didn't do this sort of thing from the jump so to speak is hilarious....I mean, you liberals must really believe that 'working together' means do everything liberals want.....Amazing.
