I just don't see Obama as anything more than Mitch's punching bag.
What is it he did?
Besides ending the Great Recession, ending the war in Iraq, getting Bin Laden and getting the ACA passed?
There's more I'm sure.
any dem could have ended Bush's recession, but few would have caved and made Bush's expiring tax cuts permanent. Bush didn't want to catch bin laden and stop the gravey tain of war.
And the aca, or Obama care as he seemed to like was nothing but a republican plan to feed the insurance companies and had nothing to do with why he was elected.
The man doesn't have a ruthless bone in his body and throughout his 8 years never stood up to McConnell.
He knew voting had to be reformed but did nothing. Even worse, he knew the Russians were fixing the 2016 election, but he was too scared of Mitch to tell the American people.
He allowed BP to steal oil, pollute the gulf and break laws without consequence.
He was "too busy" to use his great oratory skills to sway the American people.
I had great hopes for him, but he at most took two steps forward after Bush's 10 steps back.
He could of been great, but was too busy trying to look good. What was it they said, when they low low we go high. Great parental advice for a 10 year old, but no way to fight republicans.
