You simply are too partisan to understand this and that's what I mean, you don't fundamentally understand what really has an effect on minorities jobs from what you perceive to.
    The faith of the business community? No, the business community wants a definable future, not one that changes like the wind. Sequestration was a question for, what, 18 months?, with three or four little shows during that time. The ACA was up in the air for 3 years, again with a couple of Big Events thrown in. Even little things like the Farm Bill that usually go right through couldn't get done for the first time in decades. So many things that normally go through the budget for at least a year have been done in little pieces, 3 months here, 6 months there. Business can't make accurate predictions with Washington floundering around like that. Good or bad or indifferent, decisions need to be made that are going to stick so that business can react to them and move one. This wishy-washy, wallowing around that DC has been doing for 3 years is not good for business and never has been. Couple that with the worst economic disaster since the 1930's and you've got a continuing mess.

    His signature legislative effort: healthcare. The economy won't necessarily stick to him as it had started before his Presidency, and while the deficit became a serious issue for the midterms in the previous term, it wasn't as damaging as the healthcare discussion. His chief legislative effort, will perhaps ultimately be a key, if not the component to his short-term and mid-term legacy. If it continues to have problems down the road in terms of public acceptance, implementation, and effects, then this will potentially harm his legacy the most. This was where he put most of his political capital during the first term.

    His greatest weakness is the existence of the senate.

    Your gay/lib type of a response might as well be: the greatest weakness of Owebummer is "the majority of America's populace".IOW, Obummer is the Messiah and the democratically chosen people who represent us are wrong when the they think Obumster is a turd.

    In any case, I didn't say that Obama SHOULD demand that something he wants gets done. I said just the opposite, in fact

    Reading comprehension a problem for you?
    Sounds like it is.

Little to no cooperation with the GOP congress has been Obama's Achilles Heel that I trace back to the power of talk radio, Fox News and conservative bloggers.

    At the same time Newton's Law says every action has an equal and opposite reaction. Although the right-wing media can honestly claim bragging rights for slamming the breaks on the president's ability to get everything he wants done, at least not easily or enjoyably, much of their MO that includes a lot of unfair demonization and outright dishonesty obvious to almost everybody not blinded by their partisan passions has destroyed their credibility with almost everyone who not a right-wing hack. I think the right-wing media's ability to attract new converts to conservatism and by extension the republican's party's ability to reach new people is gone for a long time. They'll be able to keep their base worked up and angry but I can't see the GOP growing outside those already in the camp, which equates to keeping the country politically polarized decreasing over time as the base dies off, which will be sooner rather than later since the GOP base is made up of a significant percenge of older Americans.
    Your Gay/Lib bias and agenda is patently obvious.
