Obama’s Wasted Opportunity

Did you watch the first inauguration? He tried the whole "bring everybody together" thing, and 3 years in he looked like a fool for thinking House Republicans would support anything that would make him look decent, including his jobs bill. So he's matured, and after a 5 million vote mandate, he's actually trying to start deliver on promises, instead of waiting for the GOP to be rational. He won, so he's going to advance the platform he was elected on. Get over it.

I attended public high school in Philadelphia and was "taught" World History by an overweight Republican in tight cowboy clothes who lectured us on fringe conservative theories all year long. The fact that he was a benefiting member of the teachers union evidently did little to pull him leftward. Your fears are unwarranted.

Obama was democratically elected by a 5 million vote margin, and your party's best idea to prevent that in the future is to change how electoral votes are counted so that the minority party can win without coming close in the popular vote. And Obama is the wannabe dictator in this situation? Dictatorships are only necessary for leaders who are broadly disliked, AKA the current GOP.

Even though democratic house candidates got 1.5 million more votes than republicans overall in 2012, republicans maintained their majority thanks solely to gerrymandering. Dems would have to win the popular vote by 5-6% to win a simple majority in the house. So you're safe for at least a few years, but you shouldn't be proud of how your party achieved that.

So in other words, change the way we count votes so that the minority party can still control the government? Whatever you want to call that, it isn't democracy. I'm a fan of one person, one vote, regardless of where that person lives.
