    I worked free of charge for the campaign in the last months of the 08 campaign and I had very high hopes that we would see the second coming of Franklin Roosevelt and the Hundred Days. When I saw the big majorities he had in both houses of Congress and his appointment of Rahm Emanuel to be Chief of staff - my hopes soared even higher.
    My heart sank when he nominated Rahm and Tim. Both are the Banksters' buddies. Next he threw Monsanto-puppet Vilsack on Agriculture, and I knew it was going to be business as usual.

    What I have gotten in return is a series of disappointments and let downs. Sure - a Republican would have been ten times worse if he allowed his right wing to pull him by the nose. But the only real thing Obama has accomplished is the health care law and even that is a watered down version of a republican idea to begin with.

    We will see six years of very little actually being accomplished and I fault his first two years and his timidity to go head to head with the conservatives for that. He had the nation behind him. He had the numbers in Congress. And he blew it pure and simple.

    Yes, I give him good marks for economic recovery to some degree. That is his positive progress and it is no small accomplishment given that the right wing was willing to keep the economy in the tank just to have Obama fail. So that is a positive area.

    The only thing separating him from a failed Jimmy Carter presidency is a giant failure issue like the Olympic boycott which marred and scarred Carter. If that happens in the next three years, he could go from AVERAGE to FAILURE.
    Obama turned out to be a Center-Right, pro-business puppet who had little stomach for a fight. He supported big banks, big insurance and big oil. He backed off on every major initiative the Left asked of him.

    One reason why I laugh at the Tea Party and our Conservative friends on the Far Right is that they still think he is Ceaser Chavez. Obama is Ronald Reagan.

    Obama did nothing but sit and watch as climate changed itself...kind of like Reagan when he watched the Soviets slowly sink toward their inevitable collapse.

    What is the matter with you?? Can't you read where I said it was the Soviets who said Reagan was responsible, and not any "right wing American masters".

    Do you really believe I can take anyone who says things like "right wing American masters" seriously? You're a waste of time.

    What could be the proof that Obama imagines himself to be a God? If he performed miracles, then we could believe that he is God, or at least the son of God and not an African student. But he can't perform miracles. He can't perform even normal presidential job. He surrounded himself with "kings" as Jesus with his followers and they create ugliness as them god-Obama wants.

    I love that line! Well, you make a good point. I'm not saying that I'm happy with the status quo that's for sure.
