Um, somebody's sure got a warped view of our current President ...
No one ever said Universal Health Care - even those proponents of it - was gonna be free!
Never mind all the other stuff ...
If you're upset with the way things are going, vote 'em out. Not the President, but Congress.
Over 80% of congressional reps are reelected. Change isn't going to happen with the same gang of fools in charge.
President Obama can't lead period. He has tried lets give someone else a chance to take the reins.
It is a do nothing bunch of idiots in Congress we need to clean house there too. Get rid of the whole lot & start over. :rolleyes:
Pres. Reagan had to work with a much more divided house (The closest division was a 50 seat deficit) and still accomplished much of his agenda.
Agree with his policies or not, the amount a true leader can accomplish is staggering, even if Congress is against them.
Reagan never met the wing nuts of the Tea Party. He never was asked
to show his birth certificate. He was never questioned about his love for
America. Obama ,as the first African American President had to face blatent
prejudice never before experienced by a major political candidate.
Lets put it in language you might understand Liz. Barack Obama's domestic/economic policy is the same as George Bush... on steroids. No? Please elaborate on the differences.
EDIT - Hint <Be sure to consider which party controlled Congress at the time certain variables were put into play. It would be neat to see if you understand how that matters.>
Every President has to deal with name calling and opposition from both the fringes of their own party and the entire opposition party.
Pres. Reagan was derided as senile, a lightweight, an Actor with no background, ad nauseum. He still accomplished much of the agenda he ran on despite his detractors and taking office during a massive recession.
Pres. Clinton was derided as a hick from Arkansas, his presidency was rife with scandal, and he still accomplished much (love it or hate it) on the legislative side.
The first President Bush never got out of the shadow of Reagan, and was an appeaser, never showed a backbone on domestic policy, and didn't communicate well.(read my lips.......)
The second President Bush ran as a conservative initially, had a strong foreign policy (love it or hate it, you knew where he stood) but domestically he tried to be everything to everyone, from No Child Left Behind to the medicare prescription drug benefit disaster. We will pay dearly for both of those.
When Presidents LEAD, they do well. When they appease or go to childish bullying, they do poorly.
IN MY BRIEF RESEARCH INTO THIS SUBJECT . I AM HAPPY TOO SHARE MY FINDINGS. I DO THIS AS A PUBLIC SERVICE.
Now we know the complete story!
The English language has some wonderfully collective nouns for the various groups of animals.
We are all familiar with a Herd of cows, a Flock of chickens, a School of fish and a Gaggle of geese.
However, less widely known is a Pride of lions, a Murder of crows (as well as their cousins the rooks and ravens), an Exaltation of doves and, presumably because they look so wise, a Parliament of owls.
Now consider a group of Baboons. They are the loudest, most dangerous, most obnoxious, most viciously aggressive and least intelligent of all primates.
And what is the proper collective noun for a group of baboons?
Believe it or not ....... a Congress! :D
Don't insult baboons. At least they have a purpose to their....displays.
