    I hope you enjoy claiming that Obama has reduced the deficit, because I think that's ****ing hilarious.

    "Republocarts" would be the neoconservatives. Those liberals who came under the GOP tent during the 1970's when they fled the Democrat Party.

    No the Republican Party isn't the Party of NO, the Democratic Party is the Party of Yes. Democrats remind me of Oprah sometimes. "You get a sponsor, you get a sponsor and you and you and you!"

    If Republicans and Libertarians seem like they are saying no all the time, maybe that has something to do with the quality of the bills being put in front of them. Just some food for thought...

    I gave Obama an F-. For he who practices radical liberalism still shares the views of Progressives who in their nature reject the founding principles of this country. That is why for a century since the Progressive Era have been on the march for "Change". Their "Change" has resulted in more people collecting federal entitlements than those who actually work for a living and pay taxes. It's a crying ass shame when a single mom can now collect more in entitlements than a couple with children both working at median income and not collecting entitlements. Enough!

    He never had a supermajority.
    His supermajority died right out of the starting gate... literally, with Senator Kennedy.
    He never even had a supermajority with Kennedy either. With Kennedy, he needed the unreliable left leaning Independents to reach 60.

    Anyhow, I give him a C+.

    I gave him a B+ for accomplishing some type of health care, even if it was the watered down Republican version called Obamacare.
    But I gave him an F for failing to stand up for himself against the never ending personal attacks from the GOP, which I feel allowed the travesty of 2010.
    And I gave him another F for not standing up to Republicans in the House after 2010.

    I feel it averaged out to C+.
    But if he continues to let Republicans push him around at every turn, I will change my mind and call in a D.

    Re: What grade would you give Obama?

    I would like to agree with the majority here (minus the people who voted F- out of pure hatred and have little merit behind their votes). Barack Obama had his chances with a Super Majority, and he did not deliver. I do not believe he made this country something better than it was before the Great Recession hit. He inflated the debt to unthinkable levels, which is another mark against him in my book. ON the other hand he has some things in his favor, he prevent total economic collapse, he halted the plummet of unemployment (no matter if you agree or disagree with the calculation including underemployed or not, underemployment is better than nothing at all). The deficit is slowly coming down, so I guess that is a positive. He finally ended (somewhat) the costly wars for oil in the middle east, which is something that must be considered. I'm not advocating another Presidency like Barack Obama's, but I do feel an obligation to stick up for my President no matter if he is the best or worst ever. This is something that most shallow people on this board do not understand. I don't agree with all of his politics, I don't think he was the best thing that ever happened, but until January 2017 he will be my President, and I will stand with him. If you don't like him or his party, you had the opportunity to make your voice heard, and you failed at it. The least you can do is pay the man a little respect, he has more on his plate in one year than most of you will have in a lifetime.

    There was never a Super Majority.
    Independents are not Democrats. And one of the 2 Independents despised Obama and gave him hell.
    Then Kennedy died and it was not even close.
    If we had ever had a Super Majority we would have Universal Health Care for all Americans.

    I apologize, I misspoke, what I meant to get across is that he had control of both houses.
