The president's greatest weakness is that he is and governs as a centrist.
Did I mention that it is also his greatest strength?
lack of leadership ability

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.

As to my other comments they are ALL FACTS substantiated in even the LIB media.....like Obumster's TWENTY YEAR TENURE in the Cathedral of Hate run by the Black Racist Whackjob Jeremiah "Goddamn America" Wright, Holder's tirade on national TV excoriating America for being "COWARDS" re blacks.....yet condoning Black Panthers with CLUBS intimidating voters at an Election Location. Like Obumster being bosom buddies with Bill Avery, the Unrepentant, Homicidal, and Maniacal Commie/Terrorist from them being colleagues at the Criminal Enterprise ACORN. This Avery, who, on National TV proclaimed that he "was sorry he wasn't more effective in his bombings". And, further proof that this idol of your Obumster is a turd is that Obummer kicked off his Senatorial Career from his everyday buddy, Bill Avery's house.......this and much more is PUBLIC KNOWLEDGE !!! WAKE UP !!!
Next, apparently you don't read newspapers, or listen to your own LIB media outlets !!!
All the info regarding Obumster's TWENTY YEAR TENURE in the Black Racist Whackjob's Jeremia "Goddamn America" Wright's Cathedral of Hate has been REPEATEDLY anounced in all the media outlets......so has the rest of the info I posted.
Time to become aware of what's happening....... in at least America.
2. Newspapers? How old are you--70?
3. What Wright said was not racist, and in context, what he said was actually quite accurate. Wright is a former Marine who worked directly with a former President. He has a right to his opinion, which, as stated, was not inaccurate.
4. Irony much
