I really feel bad for Obama, us as Americans really screwed him over. Although I believe Obama promised to much while coming into presidency he did have plans of action to get them threw. Whenever he would create a bill for it to be pass it would be filibustered (vetoed) by the House and Senate which had enough republicans seats on both to destroy anything that he was trying to get passed. So when it came our time to help out Obama with election time and get more democrats into both of the senate and house we just voted in more republicans because Obama wasn’t getting what he promised done quick enough. With that being said, us as people destroyed any chance of Obama getting things done his way and the only way he could make life a bit better for us Americans was giving into many of the republicans request like extending the deficit cap, extending the war and not being able to tax the top 1% while having to give up many things we wanted life medicare and making sure our social security would be around for many more decades.
So while us as people go criticize him and call him a puppet, just know that he was fucked from the start and our eagerness to give up on him when things weren’t going right is the reason we are in this position. So when it comes down to it, OBAMA DIDN’T FAIL AMERICA, AMERICA FAILED OBAMA.
