Can anyone see Obama's Presidency so far as successful?

He has overwhelming majorities in both houses. He could pass a law to make pedophilia legal if he wanted to.

If he didn't have such great majorities, nothing that he passed would have passed. Shame on us for giving this community organizer such power.

Bush went to war with actual bi-partisan support.

Bush passed the part B prescription plan with bi-partisan support.

Bush passed tax cuts with bi-partisan support.

Bush passed no child left behind, which was co-sponsored with Ted Kennedy with bi-partisan support.

Everything Bush did was bi-partisan, whether you agree with it or not.

That's the sign of a true leader.

Remember folks, only 3 republicans out of 535 members of congress voted for the healthcare debacle. Dems are not mentioning the bill at all in their campaign's. In fact, they are running from it. They don't have the guts to have town hall meetings anymore because they cannot defend their vote.

Way to go Obama, you're doing a bang up job! Oh....speaking of jobs, where the hell are they?

The Rs knew what is better for the people of the US but it wouldnt have been strategically successful to vote other than in the bloc they did. The Rs and the Ds are all wussies, scared for their jobs. And Ds at town hall meetings, probably their lives -- not because "they can't defend their vote."

Jobs are the last thing to appear at the end of the recovery phase of a business cycle.

Yup, Bush gave the wealthiest people of this country huge tax breaks and Repugs defended it saying those people create jobs.....so WHERE ARE THE JOBS? Why didn't the Repug Gods create jobs??

The jobs didn't start disappearing under Obama...it was way before he was in office....Bush did NOTHING about it.

As far as Palin "unloading" on the President--she's just taking advantage of the fact that she's on the outside looking in. Does anyone think that she'd react well to the kinds of criticism she dishes out? I don't think she would respond well to it, at all.

The question to obama and the dems; You've had control of congress for almost 4 years, YOU are the ones that increased the debt, deficit and spending.

Sarah Palin: Obama



Speaking truth to power.
When Palin unloads, it's closely related to my unloading, when taking my morning constitutional.

I'm no fan of palin and quite frankly I'd love to see her go away. However, I'd like to see you debunk anything that was said here. Can you?

Palin is correct on this one.

Obama wants people to forget that he was a senator before he became president. So yes he did help create the mess we are in.

Democrats dont want to accept this but they are also to blame for the state we are in now. Just 1 party did NOT cause this.

Democrats also want you to forget what year they got majority.

^nothing to do with the thread.

Would you care to talk about what she actually said. Can you prove what she said wrong?

You can yourself, by comparing her accusations with his voting records in the US and IL senates.

This is the Facebook communique where Palin wrote "refudiates" btw.

You can refudiate this line by line, if you have the energy, which I dont right now.

"Barack Obama was part of the problem while in Congress. Senator Obama pushed the fiscally irresponsible measures that Democrats, who held the majority, advanced while holding the government’s purse strings. And now, as President, he’s not just one of the pack anymore as a mere contributor to the problem – he now leads the problem. We are sick and tired of President Obama pointing his finger and screeching through his blame game about what he “inherited.” Up until 18 months ago he was fully engaged in that Congressional herd mentality of the Left as he just went with the flow, adding to the debt and deficit, instead of bucking his party’s leadership to stop the recklessness. (Did you ever hear him as an independent voice standing up and speaking out against his Democrat party’s overspending and over reach? Come to think of it, did you ever hear of his congressional record at all? For the life of me I can’t think of any time he used his bully pulpit as a sitting U.S. Senator to lead free market, equality-respecting pro-private sector efforts, nor to change up actions he now conveniently condemns. He could have refudiated them all.)"
