Both major political parties in America are screwed up. It doesn't matter who is in power. Look at the state of affairs in this country since 2001 for example. People point their fingers at Bush or Obama but they never seem to realize that nothing has changed whatsoever since Bush took office until now. Obama and Bush are no different from one another. P.A.T. act is still in effect. Indefinite detention. Corporate bailouts. Never ending "war on terror". It is always business as usual, regardless of what party is in "power". Our whole political system is a scam, and a joke. Our "leaders" are simply figureheads. Left, right, it doesn't matter, nothing ever changes and nothing will until we get ourselves out of this supposed "two party system". It is nothing more than a two headed snake.
I agree that both are screwed up and that out political system is broken. it is more on repubs then dems. Obama has tried to pass bills to help our economy and the rubpubs filibustered them. they want the country to be is as bad as shape as possible to help them win an election. to say that they are both equally at fault is a false equivalency.

Obama has done very little to improve our economy. Dragging us into more wars, bombing random countries, drones all over the planet, corporate bailouts, the list goes on and on. These things are absolutely horrible for the US economy. We have to pay for this nonsense. Not to mention he has broken pretty much every election promise that he ever made. Didn't shut down Guantanamo Bay. Didn't make the government any more transparent, which he also promised. He didn't end any of the wars in the middle east like he promised, he actually got us involved in several more. How could anyone possibly still like this guy?

I agree with you that he has done little to help the economy but in all fairness the teabag house voted down or filibustered every economic bill he has tried to pass. he tried to shut down G-bay but they wouldn't let him do that.
