Okay but, if you have a few issues here and there about Obama’s presidency, that is fine. They guy isn’t perfect, and somewhere along the road he was bound to do something that didn’t sit well with you (i.e. drones, trying too hard to be diplomatic to both sides). That it, unless you are a complete sheep.
BUT, if you supported him when he was elected and feel let down now by his presidency, you is a bit dumb. Either you got completely wrapped up in campaign promises that he had to make in order to win what was arguably one of the most contentious presidential elections of our nation’s history; or you have a skewed perception of what a president can actually do. That is not your fault; the campaign process of today is asinine and causes this. Please don’t take my opinion as fact, but I consider his presidency to be very successful. I won’t bother making some emotional plea about how the AFCA, bailout, repeal of DADT, increased veteran benefits, ending of a war, etc etc etc have strengthened this nation because I’m just not that kind of person.
The GOP is doing its best to make you believe he went on some crazy shopping spree for four years at the American public’s expense. In reality, he increased spending less than any other president of the last 20 or so years. It even went down when you account for inflation. They would also have you to believe other things like that he is taking away 700 billion dollars of Medicare benefits from senior citizens. In reality, the 700 billion in cuts do not come from beneficiaries, but rather from inefficiencies in the system as a whole that have made everything else so expensive. That’s just good business acumen and proof that he has good people working around him who can make change happen with minimal increased debt. Ya dig? That’s the kind of dirty stuff the repubs condone day in and day out. It’s a dirty game the repubs are playing (at least much dirtier than what dems do, but that’s another post), so don’t buy into it. In fact, do your best not to by into anything said by either side that is designed to conjure up an immediate emotional response. Doing so means the campaign system has you right where it wants you. Think with reason and patience. If something sounds odd or too convenient, it probably is.
Obama has been about as successful in keeping his campaign promises as he can be, especially considering the GOP congressmen and congresswomen who were out for his blood from day fracking one.
But really on a quick side note, pretty much any delays and inefficiencies in his policy making are due to possibly the most stubborn congress ever.
It is my personal opinion that he deserves the chance to make good on even more of them. I suppose all I can ask you to glean from this post is the perspective at which you view this election, but that’s where I stand (I regularly donate what I can to the campaign). Not all promises will be fulfilled, but the bottom line is that he will be advocating for people the government typically ignores in practice. The GOP, on the other hand, is on track to put their support for slavery on the party’s official platform by the 2016 election.
If you watch Fox News, we can’t be friends.
Welcome to North Carolina where you can marry your cousin… Just don’t be gay because that’s gross.
I was reading a Yahoo! article on the Amendment 1 legislation that passed yesterday in North Carolina, and I couldn’t be more disgusted with some of the comments.
I really have no words to describe how angry and saddened this makes me. We’re in 2012, and people still have to fight for their civil rights and liberties against idiots like these. I don’t want to stoop to their level, but I think they should be force-fed bleach.
