So with Democrats controlling Congress and the purse strings since January 2008 through January 2011 and a Democrat President in the White House since January 2009, whose fault is this deficit?<quoted text>
LOL. Yes, he's doing a good job.
You can't blame the vast majority of that deficit on him.
The "major tax law" is your tea party spin. Health care reform was necessary. More is necessary. A public option is necessary.
ALL "derisiveness" (did you mean divisiveness?) was the result of his overreacting, irrational opposition (that's you.) HE isn't doing anything to divide people. You wackos are.
He does not only represent half the country. Most Republicans represent less than half as if they own the place. He has tried to incorporate Republican ideas at the outset of every single new initiative (including health care) and the Republicans turn on their own ideas just to be dicks (like you.) Explain that.
I'll do it for you. It's called disingenuousness, racism, politics, arrogance, negligence, and failure.
You're not going to tell me the housing market collapse under the weight of Fannie and Freddie's bad loans encouraged primarily by Democrats since the Clinton era is GWB's fault are you?
Health care reform was absolutely a necessity. What we got instead was a 2000 page taxation and litigation monstrosity called Obamacare.
