Allow me to correct you. It was the Republicans that met on inaugaration day to devise a plan to not work with dems. That's a fact. The healthcare act originated from republicans. Remember no free rides. Infrastructure is also a republican brand. The first bailout was bush. Obama was responsible enough to put all of our spending on the books. When has a Republican every balanced the budget. Not in our lifetime. If you fell cheated, lied to, or shorted, look with whom u lie.

You NEVER compromise your principles to "get along" with the enemy....obama "responsible"? That clown voted present all of his life as a means by which he could NEVER be held to account. He has no spine and he certainly has no principles.

Good grief, watkins. The Republicans had NO power for The 0's first 2 years. Zero. Zilch. Nada. They'd have had to utilize suicide bombs to affect anything The 0 and the Dems wanted to do. If they met to plan NOT to work with the Dems, it must surely have been a plan for some distant future when enough could be elected to stop a Dem tsunami.

Now there are more Republicans and they actually control the House of Representatives. They've sent bill after bill over to the Dem-controlled Senate, where the Senate leader, Harry Reid, has refused to let them come to the floor for a vote. They wanted to be able to pretend that--because of the Republicans-- this has been a do-nothing Congress. And looks like YOU are buying it.

Harry reid is a thief of his salary and should be prosecuted as such...he is constitutionally required to pass a budget.

Like a true left wing liberal liar you will never allow a word of truth, Obama slipped into the mix after two years of Democrat mismanagement of Congress, The fact is Obama didn't even consider Repulicans because for two years the Liar in chief had a majority in Congress that the Republicans couldn't overcome, he had what he wanted, but he blamed the Conservatives anyway! Blaming others for his failures has been the hallmark of his 'presidency'! As for 'balancing the budget' We'll never know because Obama hasn't had a budget for almost four years and counting, so your childish assertion that he put anything 'on the books' is absurd!

Minor correction. Obama has submitted several budgets. It's just that they've been so absurd that even the Democrats refused to vote for them. EVERY Democrat.

lw: Thank you for providing evidence (...your untrue statements) for my theory that a lot of you folks on the left are just "unsane." Your comments are unsubstantiated. How do you survive in your unreal world?

Excuse me, watkins--but I'd expect my elected officials to have NO part in the deconstruction of my nation.

Your hero & messiah came to town with socialist ideas that have failed the world over, every single time they have been tried--and your hero is proving them failed once again.

Your hero had TWO FULL YEARS of total control of the federal government--with or without a single republican vote, he held the reins.

We are reaping what your hero sowed. And it's time to replace your hero.

Too bad, so sad, watkins. Your guy blew it.

Being president was always easy for Barack Obama.

But delivering on the big words has been considerably tougher.

Obama’s big troubles stem from the rigidity of the left’s broken ideas. They admit of no compromise. Consequently, Obama has subsumed his whole personality into an unworkable progressive ideology that was dead outside of academia- and news rooms- until he resurrected it.

It’s the idea that a benign government of technocrats and academics can engineer near perfect justice at the trivial cost in liberty and money to us.

Yes; maybe they just are that dumb to think it could work.
