Attack the Democrats and let the Republicans win! YAY! It worked out so well in 2010, that we get districts redrawn under Republican rules. We screwed the Democrats not just for 2010-2012, but for the next decade or two! We're cool!

The POTUS has done quite a bit since taking office but you won't hear any new media outlet discuss that. You won't here anything about his do nothing congress either. You won't hear anything about the hateful politicians that have been blocking evreything possible that will help the people of this great nation. Most of all you won't hear anything from the media that is positive about our POTUS becasue he doesn't come with drama.

Obama does have Big Bankers and Wall Street insiders advise him on the economy which is why he bailed them out with no restrictions or repercussion and he has the Pentagon to tell him how to keep the war machine and drones going. Big money owns both parties. They just fight to keep the masses entertained.

Pres. Obama had plenty of assistance in his unfulfilled promise to change the way Washington works. It's called a recalcitrant Republican Party that cares more about regaining power than about doing what's right for Americans and America. Why else have they voted down every proposal of this President that they, themselves, originally proposed before he took office?

Liberal Rocket Science:

If Obama would've had a house and senate that gave him everything he wanted, he would've got more things accomplished.
12:53 PM on 01/23/2012
Conservative Rocket Science:

If Obama would just agree with everything the Congress (particularly the HoR) wants and stop blocking their every move, they could have "gotten their country back."

It's never black and white, unless you are a stifled, ideological thinker.

He's no more and no less that the other opportunist before him and those sure to follow who will say anything to get elected....always looking out for number one in the end. There are no real leaders anymore.....they've all been bought and sold like $2 hookers.
Stop lobbyist and then and only then will anyone with the agenda to do the right thing can stand a chance.
I'm not for any politican who does not put AMERICA first.....stop making allowances for illegals, stop pandering to dictators, close the borders until we can get an handle on the cluster that's already roaming the country side.
We cannot surive with the position of subsidizing the existence of illegals on one hand and then outsourcing jobs to the countries they're fleeing on the other hand.......
When you sheeple stop drinking the koolaid you need to take responsibility and make better decisions that will impact generations to come......stop living in the "me me me" moment.

What is wrong with the American people that they can't seem to remember we have a THREE tiered government? Are they simply incapable of understanding the role of Congress? Do they need to constantly be reminded that the President on his own can accomplish very little and that an obstructionist Congress such as we have now IS the responsible party when nothing gets done? It's like we're a nation of idiots or amnesiacs who simply can't keep track of the things we learned in 3rd and 4th grade about our government's structure.

In the meantime, whenever Obama has been free to act unilaterally, such as in his role as Commander in Chief, he demonstrates efficiency, intelligence and courage. For proof, look at what happened in the Straits of Hormuz today. You'll have to look hard because the so called "liberal" media seems to be keeping it under wraps and the right wing hate media will certainly not mention it.

So, America, that is the State of Your Union. The last 3 years have been the worst. But remember, Mr. Obama had not one thing to do with it. So don’t blame him when you go to the polls. Blame everyone else, especially yourself.

President Obama has done a decent job of pulling us out of the mess left by Bush and 30 years of trickle down economics. We'll never know for sure if he could have done a great job - the complete obstructionism by the GOTP brought all of his plans to a standstill.

How can anything get done with the pathetic Congress that we have? Obama and Boehner had a deal on significant debt reduction and the nutcases in the House would have nothing of it. I have no hope until after the November election and we sweep out everyone in the House!

LOL Here you go again. He had both houses for two years and what was so different?
12:54 PM on 01/23/2012
Wow, a whole two years. Bush had both houses for 6 years, and look where he left us.
01:03 PM on 01/23/2012
In those two years we got tax cuts for everyone not just the wealthy, a minimum wage hike, an attempt at healthcare reform (ruined by lobbyists) and a stimulus package (with the same intent as Bush's back in 2001).

After we got no debt reform, no debt ceiling debate and compromise, a credit downgrade because of the Tea Party GOP's intransigence and a no legislation of any merit to move the country forward on any pressing issues.

So the difference was simply...PROGRESS for two years...NOTHING SINCE!
12:07 PM on 01/23/2012
Well I never thought I would see on HP any articles on his not keeping his promises,,, Boy they sure proved me wrong ,,oh not that he would fulfill them just that they would reporttaht he didn't No one can make as many promises as he did and expect to fulfill them. Now the more important question why did so many other people think he could, Now I'm not saying a Republican could just that maybe when he runs again this time people will actually listen
01:20 PM on 01/23/2012
why did so many other people think he could?
they expected cooperation and foolishly assumed a loyal opposition. The only loyalty a Republican knows that which he extends to his well paying lobbyists.
02:33 PM on 01/23/2012
If everyone expected a loyal opposition as you say then they wouldn't think the promises could be kept, you defeated your own statement ...now I know why so many people believed him, you don't even know why you did ,,you do know opposition means they don't agree right?

Maybe if he had people behind him that actually wanted the country to succeed he would've been able to keep some of those promises, as it is we have a House full of clowns that have one goal in mind, getting rid of Obama. They didn't care if they took the country down, they're so afraid of him succeeding they'll do anything to stop him. At our expense!

He did have the people behind him. 75% of voters wanted single-payer health care reform and he wouldn't even discuss it. A large majority of the country wanted the Bush tax cuts for the rich to expire and he "compromised" with republicanderthals and it didn't happen. President Obama is the one who ignored the people who had his back.

The people may have wanted it, but their leaders in the House and Senate didn't. I'm talking blue dog Dems and repuds. He didn't ignore us, he didn't have the backing of the House or Senate to get all of it done. If had let the tax cuts expire the unemployed would've been skrued and single payer was being obstructed by bluedog Dems and repuds.

We were NEVER going to go from the system we have had in place all these years to boom, single payer. NEVER. The president was smart, he knew if he tried that we'd end up with NOTHING. That's the reality, kiddo.

Study up on the history of Social Security in this country and the history of health care in Canada. It took Canada TEN years. Get acquainted with reality rather than imposible pie-in-the-sky wishes.

That "compromise" meant a great deal to the unemployed people of this country. Save your ire for the republicans who held those people hostage.

So you're saying -- if there was no opposition party it would have been smooth sailing for Mr. Obama? Well,that's a fantasy world that does not exist. Obama should have been well aware of what he was up against. Yet he spent his time glad-handing, being cute and appeasing the Republicans. They naturally took full advantage. They will continue to do the same.

No I'm saying that if he had the FULL backing of EVERY DEM, including the blue dogs he could've gotten more things done.

does this include the welfare for the rich ?

And generally it is the local county and state property owners who get stuck with the bill.

And supposedly 9 billion paid to Social Security that they will never collect. And billions more in income tax and Medicare tax. Get over the hatred, please (or at least find a more appropriate place to rant).

In Colorado , 500,000 illegal migrants, plus their 300,000 kids and grandchilds would move back 'home', mostly to Mexico .. That would save Colorado an estimated $2 billion (other experts say $7 billion) annually in taxes that pay for schooling, medical, social-services and incarceration costs. It means 12,000 gang members would vanish out of Denver alone.
