    He is a narcissist and it makes him mad when people don’t give him everything he wants. He also can’t run on his failures so he blames them on the republicans not letting him spend more and more and more and more.
    He also had two years of full control of house and the senate. He wasted that time on the affordable care act. Which was held up by democrats not republicans.

    The list goes on....Everything he chirped loud about, he got, not 100%, but he got it.


    Now, can you name something he didn't get which could validate his claim of "the party of NO"?
    I do think Obama was just playing politics with his label, but I disagree with a couple of your points.

    1. Obamacare he got without a single Republican vote in the House or Senate, so you can't really use that to refute the "Party of No" rhetoric.

    4. Obama was against leaving Gitmo open.

    5. The ban on federal recognition of gay marriage hasn't been lifted.

    6. If it hasn't happened you can't really use it.

    Still, of course he was just playing politics. He wants to get reelected and that's the type of thing that people buy into.

    Obama only had a 60-member house for a few months, between the swearing in of Al Franken and the death of Ted Kennedy. The GOP filibustered almost everything, so a 60-member majority was needed to get anything through.
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

    If anything he put forward was any good he would have at least gotten Olympia Snow.

    You're right. He snuck that signature in, in the middle of the night, just like the NDAA...go figure.

    4. Obama was against leaving Gitmo open.
    when I say "Open" I mean opened the doors and let them out...effectively closing it. bad move.


    5. The ban on federal recognition of gay marriage hasn't been lifted.
    State by State it's lifting. Obama allowed for it to happen.

    6. If it hasn't happened you can't really use it.
    So you if don't get hit by the train yet, you can stand on the tracks until you do?

    Still, of course he was just playing politics. He wants to get reelected and that's the type of thing that people buy into.
    agreed. suckers are everywhere

    Obama couldn't do anything about those, and the congressional Republicans had nothing to do with it, so it doesn't really fit with your point.

    No, but you can't say that Republicans are giving into it, until they do.

    They absolutely are.

    Executive Orders. He signed something lifting it. I'll find it and post it when I have time.


    No, but you can't say that Republicans are giving into it, until they do.
    oh ok, the rat don't get the cheese until he rings the bell. I get it. that's the whole problem with voters. wait until after the fact to react.

    He ordered the Justice Department to stop defending DOMA. The Republicans had nothing to do with it.

    Until the Republicans cave on increasing taxes, you can't say that they have.

    Clinton did. But your point was that Republicans had given Obama what he wanted, when in reality they had nothing to do with Obama ordering the justice department to stop defending DOMA.

    If the Republicans haven't caved, and they haven't, I don't see how you can criticize them for caving.
