    How can the GOP filibuster when Obama had a filibuster proof senate. The problem was democrats.

    Funny thing is Obama has broken or done nothing on all his promises. No tax cuts on the middle class is getting closer to being broken.

    It was only filibuster proof with a super majority. Name me one other president that had to get a super majority for every bill?

    You have proof banks would have failed? Banks did fail only the banks Obama wanted to save got saved. more smoking mirrors.


    Show proof. We were not close to the depression we were closer to the recession of Carter Reagan yet I don't remember back then hearing we were on the verge of a depression.

    Depression is more of Obama scare tactics and Obama propaganda.

    Citibank UNDER $1 a share from 50.

    C: Basic Chart for CITIGROUP INC - Yahoo! Finance


    The goverment now having poured in $50 Billion and gauranteeing another $270 Billion in debt of Citi alone.

    So Yeah.. it's a no Brainer.
    (except for you)
    Even Now Citibank is $3 a share Under water in Book value on a 'mark-to-market' net value.
    Where do you think Citi would be without that Moola and Gaurantee?
    Citi was 97 cents a share/A Penny stock until the govt gave it Huge bucks.


    Bankamerica given another $50 Billion down to virtually -0-

    BAC: Basic Chart for BK OF AMERICA CP - Yahoo! Finance


    Merrill Lynch BROKE and forced INTO Bankamerica to save the System.
    Wachovia, Gone.
    Washington Mutual, Gone.
    Lehman, Gone.
    AIG, Gone.
    Scores more.. GONE.

    ALL The banks and brokers borrowing from the Fed as there was NO commercial paper market.
    The system was Frozen/DEAD. Everyone was B- R -O -K -E.

    It only takes one defector on the Democrat side of the aisle to be unable to defeat a filibuster. Name me just one other president that has had every bill filibustered?

    You also don't mention all the promises he made and kept that are unimportant to you but are important to us ~

    He has created more green jobs than any president in history. He has put more money into development and research into renewable sources of energy than any president in history. He has provided more education funding than any president in recent history. He's done more to protect the environment in his first year than most do in their whole term. And he's done more to reduce our CO2 pollution than any president in history, all in his first year.

    And he still has 7 years to go!
