No, he is just going on the attack. Pointing out the obstructionism of the GOP. He is and will continue to demonstrate why Congress is locked up. It will be increasingly clear the the Party of NO stands for NO work on the solutions to issues that Americans face.

Attachment 57827


The look on Pelosi's face is priceless. Same look my mother
had, when I came home past curfew


Health care reform was dead when the public option was taken out but the requirement to buy private insurance or pay a fine remained.

The Insurance Companies have already started raising rates. Everyone knows who the Republicans are fighting for

The Dems should forget about a surrender - and put a Public Option back in the House Bill and use reconciliation, which requires only 51 votes. AND QUIT CAVING IN TO INSURANCE COMPANIES What are you a freakin Republican

WHAT obstruction???????????? Obama has had his party in the majority in both the Congress and Senate for the past year. The Repubs had no way to obstruct.

The question is, why with a majority in both Congress and Senate, has Obama failed to get anything passed this year? The fact is, many Democrats (me included) do not agree with Obama's reckless and half thought out initiatives. Maybe Obama should work a little harder, listen to the American people a little more and learn how to truely be a leader instead of just being an empty suit that makes flowery speeches.

Sure, wasn't it members of the Democratic party that locked out Republicans from the Health Care bill debate in a closed door meeting? But it's the Republicans that are the obstructionist.

I agree with you to a point. Those Blue Dogs turned Yellow aren't really Democrats - are they?

Thank you for an enjoyable post. And very honest. I enjoy this post because like you my democratic friends who did support Obama, feel he has his own agenda, and to hek with the American people. They also feel he and his administration have accomplished nothing. They are very tired of his empty speeches. so thank you.
