    Not that I am a big fan of Obama right now, but overall I am with Tenebrion on this one. Republicans were sore losers this round.
    Did you read my post? None of this is new or pertinent to what I said.

    Those who are saying Obama didn't get shit done because of the opposing party are hypocrites. Same happened to Bush and many presidents before him. Stupid excuse tbh.

    US politics are fast and clean compared to the belgian blockade politics we got hehe.

    Basically one of the 4 communities can block any legeslation in this country untill the end of time even if they only got 1% of the votes of the total population. There's a reason we don't got a federal government fo rmore than a year

    Hard to imagine the USA without a president for a year.

    You got change

    value of dollar is dropping

    debt is rising faster than ever

    unemployment is rising

    relations with allies faltering (mainly Israel) but others as well

    energy prices are necessarily sky rocketing

    companies are dropping healthcare plans like crazy

    Seems like quite a bit of change to me.

    I'm sure if Ron Paul were in office right now, we'd be seeing the exact same shit from the exact same people.

    I mean, it's the same garbage we always see from political parties. Or are you going to tell me that there isn't a large group of politicians and Americans who adamantly oppose the President purely because of his affiliation?
    I don't deny the Republicans are cock-blocking Obama's moves, but it's not like Obama has tried anything new, or even anything good.

    All of Obama's initiatives come back to one, horribly flawed premise: debt is cool, inflation is nice.

    The banks are eating up bad assets and failing because the government promised to back them - promise fulfilled, hurs trillions of taxpayer dollars rofl!

    Unemployment is rising, business is slowing, debt is skyrocketing - idk give wallstreet trillions of dollars rofl!

    Economy sucks - let's get into more wars, btw here's more money wallstreet!

    Credit rating is under threat - rofl print maor money guys!

    Inflation doubling - have some more money wallstreet!

    Crisis becomes one of greatest in American history - lol raze debt ceiling!!!!

    Obama's solution to everything is print/borrow/tax.

    well we have the NVA cock-blocking

    pushing the media into "everyone wants to be seperate!" doesn't mean its true,
    i know very few people around me who actually care if we split up or try work it out together with the french speaking

    there is stuff that concerns me more then splitting our country the size of an eggplant into 2.

    US president's have been fucking retarded for a long time, nothing new here. Obama is no different. He's more a posterboy for his political and corporate interests than a leader in his own right. People made fun of Palin for being a no-experience celebrity card--and rightly so--yet Obama was pretty much in the same boat.

    We all know government is inept and corrupt. Yet the trend of this thread is the want for government to legislate more/faster? We don't need more laws. We need personal responsibility.

    Once democrats realize we need to cut spending, and republicans that we need to raise taxes (and the fact they spent all the damn money) we will get somewhere.
