    Yes, however, what prevented everything from happening was the refusal of every single Republican to even come to the table and a handful of bluedogs that allowed the Party of No to obstruct everything that Obama tried to do.
    Look....that's politics...I understand that. But what is completely dishonest is criticizing Obama for not being able to do anything, when you supported every effort to obstruct.

    Its like Chris Rock said: "You criticize Obama for not being able to cure cancer and then you say....so I'm voting for cancer."

    According to your statement, lets see, he was not given a Trillion dollars at the beginning to stimulate job growth? He was not given Billions for investment in Green Energy? He did not get Congress to pass the Dodd-Frank Wall street reform and consumer protection act? He did not get Congress to pass "Obama-care"?

    The jobs bills that you are apparently referring to, was he actually told no, or was he told no unless he and the Dems made cuts elsewhere to pay for it? On the debt ceiling, was he actually told no, or was the answer no, unless you make some changes to cut spending?

    I would have to say that if the Reps, as you refer to them, are the party of No, they are the party of no, not unless you change something else. Damn them for not letting him have unlimited spending and credit and actually wanting his side to make concession if the Reps were to make some. How utterly terrible of them.

    Dude. There was no needs for the republicans to come to the table in the first 2 years because they weren't needed to pass any law they wanted. And because of that, Obama didn't call them to the table. He only started making real efforts to bring people together after the republicans won the 2010 elections and took more seats in Congress... and then they were needed. I do grant you this... I don't think the leaders of the republican party could have been swayed either way. But there are a whole lot of republicans who aren't unreasonable and who are occupying seats in Congress and there was little effort to try and coop them. Obama dealt with the big boys and the big boys didn't play along... and then he kept on doing the same thing. It was either lack of imagination on his part, or lack of desire. It's easier in election cycle to say: I couldn't do it because of them... and to have ammunition to slurr people... and then use the few great public victories he made to hype the **** out of them and make them seem huge. For a 3.9 tril budget/year, they aren't huge.

    He has had other accomplishments. He kept his promises about the Great lakes. He kept his promises about making green jobs. He did those things. But the problem is that some of the promises he kept are also smeared with failures. Like the billions he gave to companies like solyndra and others... companies who were lead by friends of influential democrats... and then those companies went bankrupt a few months later.

    Similar to False Choice/False Dichotomy but worse/Goofier.

    As if one can't do both at the same time, or as if the cost of getting Bin Laden significantly effected the economy.

    The poll section remains the forum of choice/abuse for the worst partisan nonsense.

    thanks for playing.

    IMO, Barack's failure to tackle the economy FIRST and get that fixed and back running properly. what he did was put a band aid on a bullet wound(stimulus/obamacare,etc..), and spent his chips on killing bin laden, which if you ask me, bin laden been dead since 2007, but that's another topic.

    sound off
    We hired him to fix the economy.
    He said he could do it.
    Now he is saying it was too hard.
    Do we want four more years of excuses?
    COMEDY 4 ALL! it's a life Philosophy.

    I don't know if the body of the old man they threw in the ocean before any independent examination was Bin Ladin or not. But if it was Bin Ladin, Obama didn't kill him. Its not an issue to me either way.

    It's more an issue of his boasting of killing AL-Qs #2 man, when he was previously in Gitmo and Obama let him go. Then bragged of the military finally re-tracking him down and this time killing him - probably so Obama wouldn't cut him loose again.
