Well, my bad then. Maybe you can enlighten me as to the promises Obama made about immigration that were fulfilled in the past four years. I must have missed it or wasn't paying enough attention.
Then you can rant about clueless folks infiltrating the republican party.
I anxiously await hearing back from you.
Here's some other stuff you might have missed:
Health care reform, an improving economy, ending two wars, removed restrictions on funding embryonic stem cell research with gun control and immigration reform next on the list, all accomplished dragging along a adversarial congress. If Obama does nothing else this has been an incredibly successful presidency! Sure puts to rest the "weak president" argument, doesn't it?

Reality seems to be enjoying a sudden burst of momentum this afternoon, as more Republicans and conservatives are coming out and acknowledging the debt ceiling will have to be raised. The latest: GOP Senator Susan Collins.
Collins spokesman Kevin Kelley emails me:
Senator Collins recognizes that the debt ceiling is going to have to be raised because the U.S. cannot default on its obligations to pay for spending that has already occurred.

Iraq war is over, President Obama withdrew the troops.
Next withdrawal Afghanistan.
The Presidents next 4 years will be filled with accomplishments; ending the war in Afghanistan, bringing the troops home; Obamacares will be implemented, hopefully with some tweeking, as in resurrecting the public option; an assault weapons ban; reducing the deficit, lowering unemployment rates... should be in good shape for the transition to Hillary!

All you are reading is partisan accounts which exist pro and con.
According to reports from the previous UN inspection agency, UNSCOM, Iraq produced 600 metric tons of chemical agents, including mustard gas, VX and sarin, and nearly 25,000 rockets and 15,000 artillery shells, with chemical agents, that are still unaccounted for.

Exactly. Republicans are going to have to learn how to wear boxing gloves.
But lying isn't necessary. Telling the truth with mind-numbing, relentless one-two punches is all that's needed for a winning strategy.
Romney decided to be the president of the debate team, not the boxing team.
The next republican candidate better start training now.
And who might that be?
Romney was one of the biggest liars who ever ran for President.
After the election; all the pundits were saying that all the anti womens rights talk, the rape comments, the anti immigration stances, the anti medicare, medicaide, social security, anti gay positions were what cost you the election. Lindsay Graham said "we've run out of angry white guys";
That being said; what was the first order of business for Marsha Blackburn? Defund Planned Parenthood.
Paul Ryan: Resurrect his stupid idiotic Personhood Bill
Gingry in GA: Agreed with Mourdoch and Akin re rape comments.
What the hell is wrong with you people? Are you that dense?
However, I digress. Because of the above; we'll all be dead before another Republican gets near the White House. The American people thank you.

When Romney took office in 2003, Massachusetts had a $3 billion deficit. By 2005, the state had a $1 billion surplus, plus a so-called rainy day fund of another $2 billion. When Romney left office on January 4, 2006, the Bay State had a balanced budget plus the rainy day fund — all without ever raising taxes.
“What I think stands out about his relationship with the legislature is he made it a point not to demonize his political opposition,” Eric Fehrnstrom, Romney’s senior adviser, tells me.
“Instead of giving speeches that were critical of the Democratic leadership, he invited them into his office every week for a meeting to discuss their shared agenda for the state. And sometimes there was business to discuss, and when there wasn't, the meeting still took place. They would end up talking about the last movie they saw,” Fehrnstrom said.

you have no clue what he did I guess you havent talked to anybody from Massachusetts which everything doubled in cost.

NRA supports ban on assault weapons in 1986:

The lone piece of significant legislation related to gun rights during the Reagan administration was the Firearm Owners Protection Act of 1986. Signed into law by Reagan on May 19, 1986, the legislation amended the Gun Control Act of 1968 by repealing parts of the original act that were deemed by studies to be unconstitutional.

The National Rifle Association and other pro gun groups lobbied for passage of the legislation, and it was generally considered favorable for gun owners. Among other things, the act made it easier to transport long rifles across the United States, ended federal records-keeping on ammunition sales and prohibited the prosecution of someone passing through areas with strict gun control with firearms in their vehicle, so long as the gun were properly stored.

However, the act also contained a provision banning the ownership of any fully automatic firearms not registered by May 19, 1986. That provision was slipped into the legislation as an 11th hour amendment by Rep. William J. Hughes, a New Jersey Democrat. Reagan has been criticized by some gun owners for signing legislation containing the Hughes amendment.

Jumping out ahead of Washington, New York enacted the nation's toughest gun restrictions Tuesday and the first since the Connecticut school shooting, including an expanded assault-weapon ban and mandatory background checks for buying ammunition.
Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed the measure into law less than an hour after it won final passage in the Legislature, with supporters hailing it as a model for the nation and gun-rights activists condemning it as a knee-jerk piece of legislation that won't make anyone safer and is too extreme to win support in the rest of the country.

Rest of the country like CT, MD, CO where proposals are on the table? How about those Pew (In Gun Control Debate, Several Options Draw Majority Support) and ABC/WaPo (After Newtown Shootings, Most Back Some Gun Controls, Poll Shows) polls? How about ME (Poll finds support for guns – as well as limits – in Maine) and NJ (Gun control finds support in N.J., according to latest poll)?
this NON NRA member didn't bother following existing gun laws, do you think starting Tuesday he will?
