First off nitwit it was Republicans in Congress along with some of the more conservative Democrats that refused to fund shutting down Gitmo and prohibited sending some of the prisoners to federal facilities in the US.
We had two wars already in progress when the President took office and he followed the advice of his generals on how best to proceed.
The Patriot Act is also a product of Congress, not the White House Carol, and no liar, he didn't expand it. In fact Obama has ordered the DOJ to put in place stricter regulations on the use of National Security Letters to monitor individuals using library records and booksellers.
I thought his statements on lobbyists was overly idealistic, but at the end of the day you want people working for you who know how the system works.
Wrong again on the costs of the ACA Carol. Intense price competition among health plans in the marketplaces for individuals has lowered premiums below projected levels. As a result of these lower premiums, the federal government will save about $190 billion over the next 10 years.
All the buzz you’re hearing about having to switch doctors because of the law is overblown. It is possible you might have to switch doctors in the coming years, but that has more to do with the state of the health insurance industry than with the specifics of Obamacare. As the LA times explains, forcing patients to switch doctors “has been happening anyway because insurers are under enormous pressure from big customers to cut costs."
We've covered these phony scandals before Carol, there's no evidence that the Obama Administration has swept anything under the rug. That only exists in your delusional, hate filled mind.
Your assertion that this administration is the "murkiest and most secretive" also is a product of your delusions. Of course you had no problem with Dick Cheney refusing to disclose any details on his energy meetings did you hypocrite?
You know what? You go ahead and think this president has been honest with the American people. That his endless promises to get to the bottom of things and the allegations of wrongdoing weren't swept under the rug and, once forgotten, weren't called phony allegations. That his endless promises about Obamacare haven't been proven to be lies and that Obamacare wasn't a failure since its conception. That he's stood up to the plate and taken responsibility on behalf of us and the country. That he doesn't protect himself and his party first. That he is an absentee president and no one knows who is in charge in the WH.

So if it makes you feel better to believe whatever it is you want to see, feel free to do that.

Just don't try to convince the rest of us to join your ship of fools who see the obvious and know otherwise.

Stupid? I'll tell you what is stupid.

This idea you love that the wealthy grab more & more of the wealth in this country as the middle class gets less & less.

Over the past couple decades, the wealthy took nearly all the wealth growth .

That is redistribution of wealth.

They do it by manipulating the tax code & paying workers less & less & CEOs more & more. They do it by replacing US jobs with outsourcing & then get Republicans to give them a tax break for doing it.

And they depend on dumbasses like you to cheer them on.

"OMG OMG we cant raise the minimum wage"

"OMG OMG we have to keep handing money to the wealthy" Your Fairtax isa prime example.

Companies used to be led by CEOs whose job was long term growth & stock holders went along for the ride.

Today stockholders control the CEOs whose job has become short term profits by cutting wages, benefits, product quality for short term gains.

As you fricken idiots run around screaming " OMG OMG Redistribution of wealth" You are too stupid to know its been happening for decades with the wealth flowing to the wealthy & the working man getting crushed. This is the economy you right whiners defend.

Big Business Gets Yet Another Obamacare Delay That Individuals Don’t
By Michael F. Cannon
Share
“I didn’t simply choose to delay this on my own,” President Obama reassured the nation about his unilateral decision to delay Obamacare’s employer mandate.“This was in consultation with businesses all across the country,” he said, as if that made the situation better instead of worse. Obama threw his “consultants” another bone when he decided to delay the reporting requirements the law imposes on employers, also until 2015.http://www.cato.org/blog/ big-business-gets-yet-another- obamacare-delay-individuals-do nt
So where is the delay for the rich that you claimed.

When pointedly asked again if the president called him at any time during the night of 9/11/2012 to get an update, Panetta looked like he was under a lot of duress and said, "No."
Doesn't matter your ideology, there's something wrong with that picture.
Once again numbskull, Panetta testified that the White House was receiving regular updates. Why would the President call about something he was already getting?

Do you walk around with a sign saying "I love Socialism & Communism"?

You are too stupid to realize that if you penalize everyone who earns more than you do, there will be no incentive fir them to take risks and create jobs.

Why don't you move to a socialist country and put you money where your mouth is, big mouth?

You people make me laugh. We had 15 years of the redistribution of wealth from the bottom up to the top and you act like the "wealthy" are being taken advantage of. You really don't have a leg to stand on.
It's wayyyy past time to restore tax rates for the richest Americans to the levels of the 1990s when the economy saw rapid growth. That would not be a bad thing at all.
stupid old fool. I am sorry you don't have a pot to piss it. You want to talk about a leg to stand on--you can't even walk up steps. According to O'bama--you are a useless slug in society. O'bamaeugenics will be paying you a visit.

Dude you're a little off there on history, WWII was fought against fascism, the Nazis and Japanese. The Communists were actually our allies and contributed the most against the defeat of Nazi Germany.

and President Obama and the Democrats didn't shut the gov't down, the republican party did when it refused to pass the CR with no strings attached. Fortunately for us. 60% of the American public aren't as stupid as you and realize this

In 1981, the supply-siders commandeered the Reagan Presidency and employed their Voodoo economics, as Bush senior had called it in 1980. He was saying that tax cuts would not increase government revenues. As you can see on the graph above (get it on your smartphone app info), the Voodoo failed just as Bush predicted, and the supply-siders turned a 32-year winning streak into a debt disaster that continues to this day. For 20 years, under Reagan and the Bushes, the national debt increased compared to GDP every single year. In most other years it decreased. Twenty years in a row can't be just an accident, but to understand you need to learn the voodoo strategy.(Why graph Debt / GDP ?)

What's causing today's huge deficits? Deficit basics. Top 4 deficit causes.

Bush senior fought against supply-side debt, so the Republicans didn't support him and he lost to Clinton, who put an end to supply-side economics. G. W. Bush brought it back full strength, with V.P. Cheney saying "Reagan proved deficits don't matter." Currently supply-siders are in full control of the Republican party.

What about Obama? Notice how the debt accelerated during Bush's last two budget years. Obama's debt is a continuation of that trend and neither Bush nor Obama are directly responsible for that acceleration. It happened because of the recession. Bush set the all-time record by increasing the debt by $1.1 trillion in 100 days between July 30 and Nov 9, 2008—but that had little to do with his choices.

Recessions cut tax revenues—in this case, dramatically. That accounts for nearly half of the deficit. So blaming Obama for the full deficit is like blaming him for not raising the tax rate to keep tax revenues up. Most of the increased spending is automatic increases in unemployment benefits, food stamps, and social security payments for early retirement. Very little of it is from stimulus spending, and that's over.
