    It’s kind of funny, but not terribly accurate. First of all, Obama still engages in politics. He’s done fundraising for many Democrats lately, and if you listen to his Saturday radio he still demands Congressional action. Additionally the White House over the summer has increased his press availability and Q&As. To suggest Obama is not engaged in politics is inaccurate; he’s simply not engaged in the name calling and tug-of-war that some prefer.

    But the real issue with this comment is the idea that Congress cares what Obama thinks or wants his advice. The GOP only wants to know where Obama stands because that’s how they decide where they stand — in opposition. Doesn’t matter if he agrees with their previous position (cap and trade is a right wing idea, the ACA is a right wing idea, not negotiating with terrorists is a right wing idea, but if Obama does it the GOP gets angry). The Democrats often go to the media and say they want Obama to stay away, then go to the media and say he’s aloof and disengaged. WTF?

    Obama has engaged Congress, and Congress told him to bleep off. He took it for almost six years, and if he’s a little aloof now that just shows he learns from experience.

    In my opinion, Carter is better as ex-president than he was as president. After Carter passes, maybe Obama will take over that role.

    Sorry, they both were (are) worthless presidents & just as bad as an ex-president. Carter needs to blow away and I can’t wait for obama to be gone as well. Wasteful 2 terms of presidency and at least carter was only one wasted term.

    So far Dubya has painted his feet in a bathtub and got water (didn’t look like it was ICE water) poured on him by Laura. This is after starting two wars off the books while cutting taxes (NEVER done before). The Iraq War has led to the increasing problems in the Middle East. Saddam was a thorn in IRAN’s side and Cheney (Sec of State at the time) stated in 1992 that it would be a problem to remove him from power.

    I’d be surprised if most of those lardasses could climb the steps in front of the Capitol Building!

    It is increasingly apparent that the President has mentally checked himself out of the responsibilities of his office.
