re: How has Obama failed? *********************** Let me count the ways! How has he NOT failed?! Oh yeah, intelligence/the military found and killed some bad militant Islamics. But nobody elsewhere respects or trusts us. The guvment taking over H/C, BUT not dealing with cost controls, is a DISASTER! He regulates everything; kills the pipeline & stanches drilling. He is making Welfare and Food Stamps a target new normal (wealth transfer, baby!). Doubled the annual deficit-- +$6 TRILLION; fewer working PERIOD despite population growth; no plans for the future he dares to reveal; shrinking recovery rate
The usual spin from both sides declaring victory in the vice presidential debate underscores just how stunning and unusual Romney's blowout win in the first presidential debate was. That win up-ended the race and catapulted Romney into the lead in most national polls. President Obama, in turn, has reacted by shifting his campaign's central theme from the implausible claim that Romney is an extreme conservative to an accusation that he's a flip-flopper. But it is Obama who has a head-spinning record of, on issue after issue, doing the opposite of what he promised on the campaign trail in 2008.
