This is a big crisis in the US, and Obama has done little to nothing.
    That MO became rather apparent during the healthcare debate. The guy loves avoiding putting skin in the game and leaves anything slightly controversial up to others. Though he loves taking credit for the successes when they come.

    I probably disagree with Hillary's politics more, but really wish she won the primary and presidency. Regardless of politics, one thing this country needs is effective leadership, and I think she would have been much more capable in dealing with congress, leading her party and just generally being in an executive position

    If his policies didn't suck... they wouldn't get stalled.


    Of course, I don't really believe that.... even if he had a great policy it would get stalled by republicans until republicans held the white house so they could claim it........ thus is the life of politics I suppose.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    1) Obama isn't the first president that has faced strong and stiff opposition.

    2) He started his presidency with a majority in the senate, with that eventually becoming a super majority

    3) That is where things like leadership, ability and willingness to push and sell policy, and executive skill come in


    So you can keep fooling yourself believing the dumb BS.It's not the POTUS!
    right, I mean look at what a great job he did pushing through healthcare. Oh yeah, he left that risk to people in congress.

    Well the way I see it, it's better than what we had before, which was " NOTHING " in healthcare. IJS

    Dude, there are some serious issues with the Obama healthcare plan, and while I appreciate the expansion in coverage, it's liable to make some issues worse while creating others. Not to mention there were clearly more productive ways to pursue greater coverage, while avoiding such things.

    Secondly, I fail to see how citing bush justifies the failures of another administration

    Thirdly, I just pointed out he avoided the healthcare debate like it was a plague and left the real work up to congress. So I fail to see why we should assume that something similar wouldn't have passed under a different democratic POTUS

    The way I see it, healthcare is becoming a lot more expensive, so your consolation prize sucks.

    My main problem with the Administration is that it's typical corruption X 10 by those who seek power. This is just another example: Barack Obama insults Britain again, with a shameless nomination of top donor as US Ambassador to London Telegraph Blogs
