I'm not tired of defending Obama...but I am done.

I still think (maybe wishful thinking at this point) that you can turn the country in the right direction, and I still support you, because unlike the tea bagging lunitics on the right, I don't care want color your skin is, or isn't, but I do not approve of the job you're doing as President. Therefore, unlike the lady in the crowd that said she was tired of defending you, I'm not just tired of defending you, I'm done. You give me no reason to defend you, or the job you're doing.

Once everyone realizes that Dems and Reps are virtually the same while using social issues to make us think otherwise and divide us, then our country will be much better off.
No they're not. They're opposites. Dems believe in fair share. They see the world thusly...picture 20 tables in a room with 100 hamburgers. The top two tables have 50 hamburgers, and the bottom 10 have five to split amongst them. The Democrat says there is no way this scenario is the result of anything fair and seeks to redistribute the hamburgers.
The Repubs believe in fair play. Lay down rules, and let those who want it go get it, and those who don't starve. If that means stockpiling hamburgers, so be it. You reap what you sow.
We go back and forth between the two because sticking with one never works. Telling the lazy among us that they get their hamburger whether they work or not leads to people who have never worked a day in their life. They know every government assistance program and they abuse the system. (these people are a hell of a lot more prevalent than Dems will ever admit)
Doing things the fair play way usually leads to a spike in productivity (see Reagan and Clinton once the Congress turned Repub) because go getters feel like they'll be rewarded for their efforts. But, human nature being what it is, the haves start showing their ass to the have nots. And greed, despite what Gordon Gecko may say, does not work. It is not good. It will not save the USA, it will destroy it.

But when Scott Brown won and they lost their 60th vote...they didn't go to a moderate republican. They didn't work with the other side of the aisle. No...they passed the f**king thing through reconciliation. So this whole thing about Obama being a moderate president? No...that's a bunch of BS. Just because Obama doesn't join gay pride parades in a Speedo doesn't mean he's pissing off the looney left.

You need to face the simple fact that saying no to everything Obama wanted - in any way, shape or form - was the election strategy. No one from the Republicans were interested in anything put forward except people like Snowe. Stop blaming Obama when ALL OF US KNOW that this is basically the REPUBLICAN PLAN from the mid 90's, but now it's evil and socialist and going to somehow bankrupt us.

Unless we elect a King I don't understand how the President is going to somehow lead a nation that thinks that Global Warming is a myth because God gave us everything to use as we please into being, you know, forward looking. For crying out loud all he did was get Republican health insurance reform passed and he's the Black Stalin.

Still...where did that stop him from reaching out to moderate/liberal republicans.

Barack Obama was going to be that guy, you know? The guy that shook up Washington. That changed the culture of American politics, that.....brought the change the country needed.
That is all.
