    “And four years later we’re still picking up garbage for a living and just thanking God we have a job because our friends are unemployed or just stopped looking for work”

    Ah, the American Dream under Barrack.

    Btw That “ho-hum” is former brainwashed supporters that are just now realizing the One hasn’t done crap for them the last 4 years.

    You actually believe that, don’t you?

    Once again a Teapublican ignores history just to bash Obama. Ending two wars, stock market back near all-time high, housing market resurging, unemployment dropping, FEMA actually helping. No I guess O hasn’t done a damn thing!

    Mr. Obama wanted to do so much in a bipartisan way he used Marco Rubio’s Dream Act as a model for immigration reform, Romney’s health care plan for Mass as a healthcare plan, and kept the Patriot act and many other Bush era security tools in place. Mr. McConnall who famously said his main goal was to make Mr. Obama a one term president is willing to work with Mr. Biden, but not Mr. Obama.
    Cinci Steve would fit in well with the R’s in DC. His idea of bipartisanship is for D’s to vote his way. And sadly, that is much more lenient than Rightisright’s statements that a revolution is overdue and all media other than Fox should be hung. His words.
    It would help our nation if we would all pick nine issues that we care about. I can’t believe that out of nine issues we don’t have something an overwhelming number of us can agree on.

    People believe whatever they choose to believe…Sadly, that can be the result of edited soundbites and media spin…
    I think the “Ho Hum” is just suggestive of the more common comeback to Obama supporters of "Soooo – How’s that “Hope & Change” thing workin’ out for ya?…"
    For many, it hasn’t seemed to go so well…but I am convinced of one thing – when Obama’s time is done, the history records will enshrine him up there with the greatest of the great…Those in power are the authors of history. It may not be true, but decades from now, when young people study history, they will be fed the history as written by those in power, as it has always been.

    Thank you for your replies, Howgozit, here and under Wilkenson’s. As the comments are roughly the same, I’ll just reply here.
    If I provide links to ‘objective’ websites showing where Mr. Obama has been a centrist on the non-social issues, will you take the time to read them? I believe it was you who told me months ago you’ve little time for such things, or for providing such. If I’m mistaking you for another, please accept my apology.
    As far as making concessions go, I once again refer to the 2010 debt ceiling negotiations between Mr. Boehnor and Mr. Obama where I saw video of the Speaker lean against the back of the elevator, sigh with a smile, and say he had gotten 98% of what he wanted. Someone had made concessions, and he didn’t seem to feel he had been the one.
    I will continue in my endeavor to be a reasoned poster, but being human, will fail from time to time. Thank you for making me hold to my ‘brand’.
    I’d still love to play dueling laptops with you in a wifi coffee house or bar, Howgozit. I think it would be…illuminating.
    With much respect,

    I am no fan nor supporter of Obama. I am a student of history, though. History is usually written by the winners, the victors, and (consistent with human nature) tends to cast those ‘winners’ in a favorable light.

    I simply meant that – contrary to my own conservative ideology – the powers that be will never permit America’s first black president to become a maligned failure in the eyes of history – certainly not after his re-election last year, when the voters did have a choice, after all – unlike in 2008, with an aged warhorse an’ a very divisive an’ green conservative.
    I will spend the rest of my years questioning the rationale of the voters who re-elected a failed and very flawed president – but then, the easy answer is that the voters WEREN’T rational in the election of 2012. They voted to maintain 95% of the federal status quo…which suggests they were saying that things were going to their liking…which is REALLY hard to swallow.
    And… then there’s the other factor that is so uniquely American. No one wanted to be called a ‘racist’ for having not given the first black president every chance to succeed. Black racial guilt runs wide an’ deep in our nation, and if you don’t believe that, you just need to look at the last election.

    Contrary to the B.S. that was circulated in 2008, Barack Hussein Obama certainly ‘is no Jack Kennedy.’
    Additionally, he is also no Abe Lincoln, no Ronald Reagan, and no Bill Clinton. ’Nuff said.

    Thank God for a president that isn’t afraid to call out those that would allow the rich to continue to manipulate the poor, that has provided for health benefits for all of us, and is trying to combat the forces of ignorance that would use MORE guns to fight gun violence. Thank you very much, President Obama. We are lucky to have you.

    In a free society, the right and privilege to speak one’s mind is guaranteed…After reading your comment, an’ knowing that you have millions of like-minded kindred spirits – all I can say is, “May the Force be with you – for the Truth surely is not.”

    That is very funny, as that is just exactly what dictators such as Adolph Hitler also thought of the masses. So, you are coming out of your closet now?

    I stand corrected – ‘no problem. Looking back on it, that WAS a pretty “either / or” statement – sort of like "if you’re not with me – then you’re agin me!? I really didn’t intend it to be that arbitrary.
    Yes, the statement is so laudatory of the wonder that is Obama that I feel it may be laced with kool-aid…(I don’t think I mentioned it, but kool-aid makes me a bit nauseous). ;o)

    Theophilus: Since Senate rules currently take a super majority to get anything passed, even rules changes without resorting to gimmicks, don’t be so quick to blame the Dems. If ANY Repubs had had a conscience they would have bolted ranks and worked BIPARTISANLY to get a budget passed. But with Mr Mitch in charge, none of them had the B—— to try and go against his wishes.
