all governments of usa have failed. Their main activities are wars, genocide on benefit of israel, saudi arabia. military corporations, support for wall street ( chefs of global corporations ) and leading countries and own country to disaster. They are additionally completely hopeless, if it gets about problems of own country like natural disasters, which will be apparently more and more and economy of own country, which will go down and down more.
At last to change it and vote for reasonable , wise, peaceful people. There are such politicians even in usa too. For instance Rand Paul.

How did Obama fail? His intellectual flexibility allowed him to avert a military strike by using diplomacy in a brilliant chess like move. When was the last time a US President has been able to that? We know you friggen wingnuz troglodytes have problems with this you always have - ye moron!

American incomes have tumbled over the last decade. But for many people in Washington, D.C., it’s been something of a party.

The income of the typical D.C. household rose 23.3% between 2000 and 2012 to an inflation-adjusted $66,583, according to the Census Bureau’s American Community Survey, its most comprehensive snapshot of America’s demographic, social and economic trends. During this period, median household incomes for the nation as a whole dropped 6.6%— from $55,030 to $51,371. The state of Mississippi, which had one of the biggest declines, dropped 15% to $37,095: Nearly one in three people there have an income that is near the poverty line.

The Washington, D.C. metro area — which includes the surrounding suburbs in Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia — has it even better, with a median household income of $88,233 that ranks highest among the U.S.’s 25 most populous metro areas. Tampa, Florida’s median income, by contrast, is under $45,000.

D.C. isn’t the only gainer, of course. Four U.S. states saw real income increases between 2000 and 2012, including North Dakota, which saw a 17% jump, thanks to its oil-and-gas boom.

As the Journal has noted recently, the U.S.’s lethargic economic recovery is hindering income growth, depriving citizens of spending power and leaving many stuck in poverty.

But D.C.— which wasn’t hit as hard as other major U.S. cities by the 2007-2009 recession — is a different story. Its local economy is expanding faster than the broader nation, and its property market is soaring, thanks in part to increased federal-government spending and an influx of federal contractors, lawyers and consultants.

It was his cowardly yellow streak.

This will be barock's 3rd lost war if you don't count Libya.

Obama has some good ideas such as reaching out to Iran to make peace. This is why I voted for him in the first place. His weakness, however lays in his cowardice. He is a pervert. So he appointed Hitlery to the most powerful position besides the Office of the President although the voters has clearly rejected what she stands for. For 4 long years, he followed Hitlery's foreign policy, not the one he promised the voters. That got us into more and more conflicts abroad. Now, he is left holding the bag while she gets ready to run for president again. That is not smart politics. That shows Obama as a weal leader. And that is why nobody respect the Office of the president anymore. Foreign leaders like Putin just cannot believe Obama is so stupid.

Washington DC- suburbs: chock full of rich people, mjjizzem.

Eight of the eleven U.S. counties with the highest median income border DC.

Rich. Always has been.

Which means the cost of living is very high.

Which means for those who aren't rich very hard to make a living.
