You kept saying that people are against Obama trying to make him a one term president, and use that as an excuse why he hasn't kept "any" of his promises.
WOW I guess you forgot that they made a whole movie about GWB to try and stop him from being re-elected - Fahrenheit 911.
But as you have proved on here you only see one side of the argument.
There is a word for that, oh yes, bigot!
And care to comment on why he would want to make 30 million illegal lawbreaking aliens into legal residents? Why doesn't he just make breaking and entering legal, he won't because that won't get him any votes, will it?
Actually, his administration has deported more illegal immigrants than GW's has by far. As for Bush, he did get re-elected. In 2000, the US Supreme Court stopped the recount that might have made Al Gore president, and in 2004, he did get re-elected with the help of the Swift Boaters who denigrated a man who actually served in the military (Kerry) as opposed to the wannabe cowboy who did not. In any case, my point still stands about the importance of electing not only a president but also congressmembers along with state governors and other officials who support that agenda. The events in states like Wisconsin, Michigan, and Ohio, among others, prove that the officials at the local and state levels have much more immediate effects on the well-being of their citizens than do federal officials. The only reason that the House Republicans can't get anywhere with their agenda is because it can't pass the Senate, which is still dominated just barely by Democrats. On the other hand, the Democrats do not have the 60% majority to pass certain things, like the penalizing of companies that outsource jobs from this country. As for your idiotic remarks calling me a bigot, you are lobbing rocks from a big, shiny glass house. I have always noticed that the biggest racists of all are the worst offenders in projecting racism onto others. As one poster has already said, I will let you wallow in your own stupidity. For that reason, although there are plenty of links listing what President Obama has actually done, you can find them for yourself.
