    That goes without saying, you think I don't know that? Come on!

    So.. don't allow him any credit but assign him all the blame? I get it now..

    God, how patient are Thy poor! These corporations and masters of manipulation in finance heaping up great fortunes by a system of legalized extortion,
    and then exacting from the contributors--to whom a little means so much--a double share to guard the treasure!

    That's what the American people expect, not Reid blocking legislation from moving forward.

    Exactly, that is how Congress works and if the Senate approves the bill it's passed on to the President.

    How do you know that? Many bills have been sent back only to be amended, fine-tuned and sent back again. How do you think we make laws, but nothing gets done if Reid won't start the process of putting bills on the floor for a vote.

    Why isn't Obama putting any pressure on Reid to do his job?

    How many times would you like the Senate to vote on the House's over 50 bills to repeal Obamacare?
    Not to mention that the number of 350 you quote is nearly twice as many as what the real number is.
    How many of those 200 bills were free of poison pills and legislative riders, the reason the government shut down last October?

    Explain why the House refused to go to conference committee 18 times last year--that's the answer to your deflection

    How many times does the President have to give the Navy Seals credit before it gets through your thick heads?
    You choose not to listen--another poor choice of the extreme wight .

    Nope. He turned out to be alarmingly corporatist, really didn't care about civil liberties, and on the agendas we do agree on he screwed up badly. I think he was naive, never fully recovered in time from that naivete, and never had much executive skill besides.

    LOL.....if GWB had gotten the job done, he would have stuffed a sock in a flight suit and would have paraded down broadway ending with a ticker tape parade and fireworks over 9/11....and you would have been praising him as a "great and incredible world leader"....get serious NP....You guys are all sour grapes because your clown couldn't get the job done. Not surprising since he took his eye off the prize.
