So let's see, we didn't get health care reform, the GOP got that. We didn't get the Afghan war ended, the GOP got it to continue. We didn't get the Iraq war ended in a timely fashion. We didn't get investigations into the criminality of the bush white house. We didn't get investment to get the economy going. We didn't get repeal of the Pat Act. We didn't get the gigantic bush federal government size reduced. We didn't get jobs. We didn't get reform of education. We didn't even get democrats in positions to do anything.
Your point was the the dems are whining because they didn't get everything. It is correct that the dems didn't get everything, because Obama is a republican and should have changed his political affiliation before the election.
You don't like Obama because he has a democrat label. I don't like Obama because all his policies are republican. No wonder the economy can't recover.
So what should a person do, when all the policies are wrong? Just sit there and allow the nation to go down the tubes?
Pretty muh everything you said is true.
That's why I didnt vote for Obama.
I don't vote for labels, but apparently you did.
Don't whine to me about what you got.

Do you know who I voted for? It wasn't Romney, too much of a psychopath. It wasn't Obama for the reasons I gave. Guess again. Here is a hint. I don't belong to any political party.

The White House is not responsible for polarizing the Congress, only.
The nation and world are more polarized and less safe.

Yesterday, Sec of Treasurey Geithner told CNBC that Pres Obama is willing to go off the Fiscal Cliff driving the Economy into Recession, costing thousands of jobs, and raising taxes on everyone who pays taxes not just the rich, and destroying billions in value of 401K plans..........having made the political calculation that the dibilitating economic devastation will be worthwhile IF he can BLAME OTHERS and get gain as few as TWO new Far Left Progressives in Congress IN 2014.

Cliff diving was his intention all along. There is no 'deal' to satisfy that need.
