What are they obstructing? DumBama couldn't create a job if he had his own lemonade stand. Didn't you see where he wasted much of our tax dollars on green energy? The few jobs that were created with the so-called stimulus cost thousands and even tens of thousands per job. That's now how you create jobs.
Now if you knew how government worked, you would know that people from different leaderships work together--not against each other. He's said it before (and so has Biden Boob) if he can't get Congress to go along with him, he'll find some way to get around them. In his most recent assault on our Constitution, he decided he was going to stall the employer mandate until after the election. WTF does he think he is to do that? I know he's an un-American, but the least he can do is respect the way our government works.
Your President had two years to do something with this economy with an all Democrat Congress and Senate. What did he waste our time and money on? Commie Care.
He was more interested in promoting Socialism and government dependency than he ever was about jobs and the economy. Good job DumBama, the government now controls 1/6 of our economy and we've never had this amount of government dependents before.
Look at the results of his actions and quit blaming Republicans for protecting our country from this Communist.

Good choice. I bet if we actually calculated what government controls, we would be considered in a state of tyranny.
Thomas Jefferson once said "When the government fears the people, we have liberty. When people fear the government, we have tyranny."
Now we are at a point where we fear not having health insurance or lighting up a cigarette in public park.
When I read or hear these libs protest, I often wish I had a time machine where we could take them back 40 or 50 years and let them see what it was like to live in a much freer society. A society where people openly practiced religion, and parents actually raised their own children. A time where metal detectors were never needed in school, and people slept with their doors open and only the screen door to allow summer air in at night. A time where the poor had to try and the middle-class tried even harder.
Back then, the only people who depended on government were those truly need of their help. Not those who wanted to loaf or were so vacant of pride that they faked or lied about being able to work. Today, we live in a society where many on the government dole live better than working citizens.
In case you haven't noticed, this is 2013 not 1776. Did people think government was a tyranny when everything was rationed during WWII? I could explain it but I can't make your fascist attitude understand it.

WOW! You accuse someone else of selective memory on your/this thought?
The 'one term president' goal by either party was there in 2012, 2004, 1996, 1992, 1984, 1980 etc etc. Sometimes it happened sometimes it didn't. It's normal. geeez...talk about idiots!

I disagree. I don't remember Tom Daschle (Senate Majority Leader during the Bush years) EVER saying that their TOP priority was to deny G.W. Bush a second term. Maybe you could point me to that quote.

But here's Senate Majority Leader McConnell saying it:

They do NOT have to say it. It IS the GOAL of the campaign or why contest the incumbent??
It doesn't matter if it's congress, governor, mayor or what ever, the goal is to beat the opponent or why run?
Why make campaign contrbutions if not to win? Why travel exhaustively & make speaches & give interviews if not to win.
The only reason to make the 'one term' statement is so that people that do not realize what the campaign actions mean will then understand.

The MAIN goal of elected officials should be to serve our country by working together, not to spend most of your effort to thwart your opponents in the next election.

"Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, in an astoundingly telling moment halfway through President Obama's first term, told a reporter what had been the guiding strategy of Republicans in Congress. "The single most important thing we want to achieve," McConnell said, "is for President Obama to be a one-term president." They figured that if they refused to cooperate on anything, they could later tell voters that the president hadn't accomplished anything and that he had failed to reach across the aisle. McConnell and his caucus dove into that project hook, line and sinker, threatening to destroy the nation's economy by not raising the debt limit, blocking jobs legislation, eschewing compromise on the Bush tax cuts, refusing to staff the newly-created Consumer Financial Protection Bureau or the National Labor Relations Board, and blocking even uncontroversial federal judicial nominees.

The "one-term president" strategy created plenty of gridlock, set back the country's economic recovery and resulted in a historic vacancy crisis in the federal courts. The one thing it did not achieve was a one-term presidency."

Communities, families & churches took care of their own & 'Uncle Sam' does NOT realize that Uncle Sam is NOT quite a family member.
Thomas Jefferson also said..." A government big enough to give you everything that you want is also big enough to take it all away."
A very wise man.
What was better was how much less government we had.

I remember police pulling over drunks and following them home to make sure they didn't get in an accident instead of taking them to jail. I remember kids jumping up and down on the back seat or wrestling in the back of a station wagon with no child restraints. They didn't even wear seat belts, but then again, adults didn't either.

When two guys got into an argument at a bar or something, they agreed to do the gentlemanly thing and go outside. They didn't have knives or guns, they had pride. And if a police officer did come along, he would separate the two and tell them to cut it out.

You didn't need a city permit every time you wanted to put up a pool or install a new electrical outlet. Kids actually rode their bicycles with no safety gear. I remember those little stores where the clerks would sell kids cigarettes because back then, it was no big deal. The State wasn't sending out agents to act like minors and then give you a $1,000 fine or haul you off to jail.

So what's your point?

If anything, the Republicans tried to help DumBama. Imagine the debt we'd be in today without the Republicans. It's the Republicans who fought the biggest jobs killer--Commie Care. It's the Republicans who pushed for shorter periods of unemployment benefits because employers look down on people that have been on unemployment for months on end. DumBama's solution? Make a law that says employers can't do that.

Obviously you don't understand it if you're trying to compare rationing to forcing people to purchase healthcare insurance, telling people how much salt they are allowed to have, if a restaurant is allowed to use transfats in their menu, how much you are allowed to weigh if you drive a truck for a living.

I bet if you cradle-to-gravers had your way, you would have government over your house to wipe your mouth after you ate dinner made from the food stamps they gave you.

Why not? According to Piglosi, unemployment is good for economy. See how much better we are today now that we've had those millions of people on unemployment throughout this recession?

I don't know who the other Pops from Batavia is but I do agree with officials being there to serve the country & the people but unfortunately, it doesn't seem to be that way. I think it is past time to replace McConnell, he has been there too long with too little to show for his time.
I also agree with the other pops on one thing, whether spoken or not, it is still the strategy or why campaign if not in effort to win?
The reason to run should be to serve the people & improve the country. The initial effort is still to win. The long term goal is to serve.
