"He seems to be in over his head. He underestimated the system of government that we have."

The system of government we have is a two-party system. Obama underestimated that system of government.

You have a very good point. I stand corrected.
Denzel Washington wrote out a personal check to Brook Army Medical Center in San Antonio, Texas, in 2009 after visiting the troops with his family.
Obama rarely even acknowledges our troops. They are just another pawn in his legacy.
You know what's even funnier son?

bushie boy gets troops hurt but was ill prepared to address the wounded.

bushie boy didn't acknowledge the troops until the issue got out of hand. that's why he had very little funding early.

Yes, so why do you keep posting from opinion sites pretending they are fact?
You are the delusional one.
You cannot handle the truth.
Unnewsworthy blogs, unnewsworthiness spam, superlative bias and exaggerated or hyperbolical expression of opinions or perspective by sonicmoron......

AND.. delusional cut-n-paste commentary on political events from a politically left communist perspective from a dumbass called sonicmoron..

The Senate voted 67 to 33 on Tuesday to move forward on the two-year, bipartisan budget plan that restores some of the automatic spending cuts of recent years, trims spending in other areas and appears to have put on hold until 2015 the bitter battles that led to this year's partial government shutdown.
The 12 Republican senators who "broke ranks and sided with Democrats," as Politico says:
Lamar Alexander of Tennessee, Roy Blunt of Missouri, Saxby Chambliss of Georgia, Susan Collins of Maine, Jeff Flake of Arizona, Orrin Hatch of Utah, John Hoeven of North Dakota, Johnny Isakson of Georgia, Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, John McCain of Arizona, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, and Rob Portman of Ohio.
With the procedural vote, the lawmakers took a key step toward approval of the legislation, which last week won overwhelming support in the House. Tuesday's vote was to begin debate on the measure a step that requires at least 60 "ayes."
The next vote, on the plan itself, requires only a simple majority (51 or more votes if all senators are present). With the Democratic caucus controlling 55 seats, passage is expected.

All anyone had to do was look at his political resume and his past and present affiliations.
If he were white, he'd be a footnote in history.
He missed his calling. He should have gone to Hollywood - and auditioned. They would have loved him. He might have been the next Denzel Washington.
But Denzel Washington was no more qualified to become the President of the United States that Barack Obama.
Many think his resume makes him uniquely qualified for the White House job!

In letters, interviews with administration officials, hearings and reports, Congress has repeatedly asked the administration: Why has the federal government failed to issue proper consumer protection guidelines for Obamacare's navigators? Even as U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius admitted before Congress that the lack of federal requirements raises a "possible" problem, the administration has continued to call common-sense safeguards "cumbersome."

So what do you make of Michelle Obama announcement at an event a few years ago that Obama visited his "home country" of "Kenya"?
According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, "home country" is defined as "the land of a person's birth, residence or citizenship."
It is also defined as "the country in which a person was born and usually raised, regardless of the present country of residence and citizenship."
Did Michelle Obama not know the definition of "home country"? Or was it a Freudian slip?
Answer the question. And don't say Merriam-Webster is dumb. Or shoot the messenger.
Surely, you have a logical answer.
A C A must be working

Excellent observation
The only ones "impossible to deal with" on Capital Hill have a D beside their names.

You and Homer are confused as well about the system of government that we have. It's a two-party system. Not we're right and we want our way and we know what's best and the Republicans won't give us everything we want.
