    Well, his first two years in federal government, anyway.

    And actually, the Dems didn't have enough votes to break cloture until Franken was seated, which took until July 7, 2009.

    It was expected that the democrats would try to push through as much as possible when they had the numbers to do so, but by the time the next election came along all that Obama and the democrats really had to show for it was Obamacare. I doubt politicians that push through unpopular laws when they have huge number advantages really think they won't pay for it in the next election and I don't think Obama was any different. Obama might be an asshole, but he's not stupid.

    Yeah, I forgot about Minnesota. But the thing is after 2010 Obama could have pivoted just like Clinton did, but he choose not to. Clinton didn't have a problem working with Gingrich, Hastert and Lott. Mainly I think because he knew he had too. Perhaps Obama never realized he had to work with Republicans after 2010.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Aren't Saturdays suppose to be no clown days on the DP unless the topic is about how politicians are elected to office by voter fraud ?

    I like how you got around that by saying "seated" instead of elected.

    Because it's accurate. He was elected in November. He wasn't seated until July.

    Oh, I forgot, every time a Democrat wins an election, it's voter fraud.

    Obama has never had to prove himself until he was elected President. He was nothing more than a community organizer. People fell in love with his speeches. He has proven over and over that NONE of his speeches has any substance at all. Obama is not only a liar but a proven hypocrite over and over again.

    is not his fault... I think it is because according to progressives they would favor deporting you - regardless if you're legal or not - just to prove a point.

    At the simple time its the fact of the democRATS that make business more difficult to do in the US regardless if I'm Italian or not.... Now does that make me conservative? I suppose to most progressives, but what is my true political affiliation - I'd like to believe libertarian.
