    I don't know how many times I have to post this......The obstructionist is Harry Reid in the senate........There are over 80 bills the HOR have passed and Reid won't bring them to the floor for and up and down vote.....

    Considering the GOP's alternatives in 2008 and 2012, however, I have no remorse about voting for Obama twice.

    It doesn't matter how many times that you post this, Boehner has done far, far worse. I take it that you give Obama credit for keeping U.S. boots off the ground in the M.E..

    Actually he blames Obama for not keeping the boots on the ground as per GOP "warhawk" leaders Senators McCain and Graham.
    As well as not being an isolationist as with Sen. Paul .

    No I don't we should have left a residual force in Iraq and not completely cut and run........Have you noticed we have a thousand troops there now? The situation was stable when he turned tail and run.............

    Eight bills plus on Reids desk.........What has Boehner done so wrong?

    How is ending discrimination leftist? Are you saying that discrimination is a right leaning trait? President Lincoln would disagree with you. Furthermore, how is ending a practice that has made America less safe leftist? Or are you saying putting America at extra risk is a right leaning trait?

    Obamacare functions to move more people's healthcare costs on their own burden rather than the status quo system which promotes freeloading. How is pushing people towards self responsibility for their own insurance costs leftist? Or are you say that freeloading and theft are right leaning traits?

    Women on subs? How is that even either?

    Hatred of the military? In what way? Other than you just don't like him? Remember it was the Republicans who largely came up with the notion of huge cuts to the military if Congress could not agree on the budget. Obama writes no laws and authorizes no money. I think you don't know what branch of government does what.

    Spending? In what way? Per capita is actually lower than Reagan. Are you calling Reagan a leftist by transitive logic?

    All your list proves is you don't know the difference between right and left.

    Several things. Some of which were mentioned in passing earlier in this thread.

    1. Dodd-Frank (Wall Street Reform legislation)
    2. Giving the correct amount of attention to pursuing and taking out bin Laden. (Any self-respecting Seal would have been more than willing to die for that.)
    3. Ending the scam of denying health care to people with "pre-existing conditions." As messed up as much of the ACA is, that one thing still leaves the nation better off than before.
    4. Ending DADT. You say it's a bad thing; most of the world seems to think it's a good thing.

    That's already more achievement than most past presidents can claim. And definitely more than any Republican since Nixon.

    Women in subs and DADT should not, IMO, be considered exclusively liberal policies - that they are indicates IMO a significant issue with the GOP. Note I do not consider the GOP conservative.

    "Obamacare" (wtf is up with naming that **** after him, anyway) is probably what whichever corporations donated to his campaign wanted, since it potentially takes some of the costs off of them and places them on the taxpayer.

    Spending? WTF man, spending has been this way for the last few presidents, it's not just Obama.

    As for "hatred of the military", I think that's BS. He doesn't hate the military, he just more neutral on them than previous presidents, which makes it appear as a dislike in comparison.

    The core logic of the ACA is actually quite Conservative in nature. The ACA seeks to move away from the system that actually promotes freeloading and theft of insurance dollars. Under the old system, no one could be denied life saving care and often regular care was provided for in the ER. That of course was paid for by a theft of everyone else's insurance money. The ACA pushes people towards at least paying for some of their own insurance and thereby reducing the draw on other people's insurance pools.

    What people don't know is because of the old system, you say paid $450 for insurance, but you only really got like 70%, or $315 worth of care because the rest was being taken to pay for the uninsured. I only know this because my friend used to be an insurance regulator and found this out during his job and thus told me. Thus, people are seeing their premiums rise and are freaking out, not realizing that they're basically paying the same amount per dollar of healthcare but getting closer to 100% of that care.

    The ACA has functional problems, but the internal core principal of getting people to pay for their own costs is conservative. The GOP proposals do nothing to promote people actually paying for their own costs and instead push freeloading.
