    Yes, and says that Republican obstructionism is ruining the political process even though he's had a filibuster proof majority the whole year.

    If Obama was really interested in working with Republicans, he would not have outright insulted them so much.

    The monthly meetings seem like a good idea though. Hopefully not a farce.

    Actually, yes, I did! In fact, I and all of my shipmates onboard the USS America (CV66) (decomm'd) all believed that terrorist attack on the USS Cole was justified as a prelude to war then. But former Pres. Clinton did nothing...just left us all wondering, "Why?"

    That lame ass missle strike in Afghanistan right before he left office was BS. In effect, he left it up to the next administration to deal with which I thought then as I do now was a complete cop-out. But that was then; this is now...

    This is the kind of idiotic sophistry that makes me think democracy is a bad idea. Bush took over at the very start of a recession, when unemployment obviously was at an unsustainably low level. That was not his fault. The current recession was not his fault either (or Obama's). The only thing they control is their response. Bush's was quick and effective, Obama's has been a blundering disaster.
