It's insane how people ignore this. When you do bring it up to someone they just say "OMG, like, so and so did a really good job, ok."

haha i know. when i was younger i always found it odd that a lot of the same individuals were carried over from administration to administration, especially when different "parties" were in power. eventually i connected the dots though :)

What dots? You don't think the Fed Chairman should stay the same? The generals? The people in charge of things where steady steering is vital to the nation's best interests?

sure g5 when they walked out of the white house meeting in january and announced the web site you could donate funds to to defeat "obamacare" that was really a feather in the cap of the "moderate" republican willingness.

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.

boom bitches!!

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. President Obama is the black Dick Cheney people. I don't understand why the right hates this guy so much. He is you. He is what you want in a President. The problem is, he isn't what I, or any true liberal wants. How he can call himself a democrat..a liberal, a progressive, how he can call himself anything other than a conservative is beyond me. Time and time again, he has turned his back on his base, the people that elected him in the first place, to be a "moderate". You know what happens to moderates Obama? Everybody hates them. The right hates you, and the left hates you, and thats how its always going to be. Being a "moderate" just means you don't want to piss anybody off. You're playing not to lose. You're not playing to win, and I have had it.

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.

Wow, you are naive. You must be very young.

No one person can make the changes you seem to believe that he could, unless that person is a dictator akin Hitler or Stalin.

Fwiw, it was his being a moderate that got him elected, not his liberal base. His liberal base was going to vote for him regardless. It was the moderates that were the swing vote. And if he loses them in the next election, the republicans will probably win.

The Democrats had the majority in Congress. They didn't need the Republicans to get anything passed. They wanted the Republicans to hold their hands as they jumped off the cliff, and the Republicans said no.

There are very few decisions that a president makes that involve idealogy.

they steadily steer the nation towards their best interests, not ours. they gotta keep the same individuals in positions if they want to stay on course to the overall agenda.

No they're not. They're opposites. Dems believe in fair share. ey 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 anprogram 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 natuwill not save the USA, it will destroy it.

Can I get cheese on my burgers?

those people are a frightfully small percentage of voters. A lot of people on the left that are concerned with environmental and war issues are disappointed, in the same way that all the fringe supporters are when their person gets elected and has to rule from the center. When you hear about a 47% percent approval rating you know that 45 percent of the disapproval is from the people that didn't vote for him and 10 percent is from the lefties that are disappointed but will not vote for anyone they percieve worse.

Says who?

132,618,580 million people voted in 2008.

http://www.reuters.com/article/idUSTRE6465E220100507

Enrollment has set a record each month since reaching 31.78 million in December 2008

31 million people were on food stamps. Say half of them are kids.... 15.5 million people are 11% of the voter turn out.

Do you know what margin of victory Obama had? 8,538,559 was the difference.

There were more people on Food Stamps, than voted Obama in.
