    Which is your opinion and NOT the same as wanting him to fail, they are TOTALLY different. Why would anybody care what path he takes if it gets success?

    no one is knocking your opinion of his PATH, thats fine by me. I dont like everything in his path, thats for sure but im still NEVER going to root against him, ever.

    Now mind you, that doesnt mean I support ever bill, policy etc, I DO NOT. What it means is if the bill/policy passes I hope and want it to work even though I dont think it will. In no way what so ever do I want it to fail, I hope my opinion of it being bad is WRONG so America WINS.

    It's almost like you don't care that America is the cost. As long as HE fails, that's all that matters.

    There's times I definitely wanted him to succeed as well. And there were times where I didn't feel strongly about the negative impact of his actions that indeed I HOPED he succeeded even though I was leery, such as in the ways he chose to engage Egypt. But you're damn right if there were times I absolutely wanted this President to fail, and if that gives me half a brain so be it.

    By the way, I wanted Bush to fail as well. I wanted him to fail at putting a restriction of rights into the constitution. I wanted him to fail at furthering government influence into our schools. I wanted him to fail at passing stimulus. I wanted him to fail with "comprehensive" immigration reform. Somehow, wanting HIM to fail on those things never really seemed to piss off liberals. Funny that.
    Wanting policies to fail and wanting the President to fail are two different things.

    But the end result is that our nation continues to be stuck in a bad place.

    Nonsense. Some folks believe that if Obama implemented everything he wanted, we'd be in a worse place. Yes I want THAT to fail.



    Funny how this it is a topic for this president... It's like opposite day from the last one.

    Not necessarily. If a bad policy fails at getting through our Congress and Senate, and if necessary our court system, then they can go back and try something different. Hopfully that something will be something that is actually needed and good. If not then hopefully the process recycles. In this way you can hope that Obama succeeds, yet still hope his bad policies fail.

    Edit note: Unfortenately our system is not perfect due to greedy men. I truely believe that our FF's made a great system of government. But it only works properly if the people running it are not greedy.

    It's almost exactly opposite, complete with folk on both sides switching their arguments.

    Correct. It would be nice if we elected a more competent President to begin with. One who made better choices from the start.

    Partisanship blocks progress? I know that sounds easy to agree to, but what are you actually left with without partisanship in politics? Sure, reason and logical courses can guide you, but when you pick your course and defend it against another plan, you are now officially a partisan.
