    While no one has the type of experience that makes a comfortable fit for the office, there are backgrounds that lend to the idea that they could handle the job. Obama started running before he even had a full year in the senate, and really had nothing to make him stand out prior to that.

    In fact, his entire campaign was basically built on his ability to deliver emotional, yet largely superficial, speeches

    Of course, but I think that as president that is a part of his job, to bring both parties together and try to get things done. He has been pretty inept at it, but yeah the reps are also pigheaded. I understand that each party has to represent their constituents, but sometimes compromises have to be made for the good of the country.

    It's just lame that Obama leans on this, so very often.
    I think the obstruction in this congress is beyond anything we've seen in the past.

    14 reasons why this is the worst Congress ever - The Washington Post
    This week, the House of Representatives voted to repeal the Affordable Care Act. On its own, such a vote would be unremarkable. Republicans control the House, they oppose President Obama's health reform law, and so they voted to get rid of it.

    But here's the punchline: This was the 33rd time they voted to repeal the Affordable Care Act.

    ...the 112th Congress is no ordinary congress. It's a very bad, no good, terrible Congress. It is, in fact, one of the very worst congresses we have ever had. Here, I'll prove it:

    Grover Cleveland had the right kind of experience to become president: being president.

    We need H.W. Bush again!

    the lack of legislation is overshadowed by the enormous growth of the regulatory agencies.
    I saw Fox Report (the only Fox show I watch), and it said 117 laws passed by Congress, but 3700 new regulations.

    People do not understand the "4th branch of gov't". They wield expansive power, and are passing reg, that have the force of law.
    Another indicaton of the Unitary POTUS.
    So what does it say about this Congress? Well, the 112th Congress is the most polarized since the end of Reconstruction

    Which is the real story of DC, practiced by both sides.

    Impeach him? Not that I consider that a viable option, but even if they decided to go forth with those proceedings, he would be out of office long before any kind of action was taken.
