I just had a visual image of a thousand blond haired 30 something women wearing mom jeans and a striped sweater waiting in line after one another in my head.

Please don't pretend Obama is friendly to business, big or small. A peek at the news will help you understand what the EPA is doing to the energy industry and how those costs will not only impact your home bill directly, they will impact all manner of businesses and those cost will trickle-down to the consumer.

Please don't pretend Obama had Congress "in his pocket for two years."
If that were true, Gitmo would be closed by now.

Then why do we keep hearing from Tea Party supporters that the TP was founded in 2007?

Too true. My dad was a manager. He used to talk about people with 20 years experience who hadn't learned anything new in the last 18. And really. Sarah was mayor of Wasilla, that had a city manager to do the day to day. About all she did was sign checks. She had only been serving as gov. of AK for about seven months when McCain chose her. Her experience was not what you would call "extensive".

Please explain in detail how Congress has prevented the closing of Gitmo.

Obama is toast. Politicians simply do not get elected with a 38% approval rating, regardless who they are running against.
