    His agenda is right where all the shovel ready jobs are. Nowhere.

    "It is lonely me just doing stuff. I'd love it if the Republicans did stuff, too."

    Isn’t that the truth? Republicans apparently can do NOTHING good for this nation these days. What a pity.

    Hey “Truth” =

    “ . . .he has FAILED to ENFORCE the laws that are already on the books . . . “

    You fail to mention that it takes MONEY to enforce laws.

    And you fail to mention that sequestration, which is still in effect, has deprived border enforcement of billions of dollars that would have gone toward enforcing laws.

    Once again Republicans are blaming others for their mistakes.

    That has become a pattern, hasn't it?

    From the first reads, it sounds like we all are finally getting it. There is really no defense to how Obama has run his Presidency. It is actually pathetic in some ways that a man who rose to the highest office possible is resorting to tired old 2007 campaign rhetoric to try to keep his Presidency relevent. This is what you get when you elect narcissists to the White House. The Democrats have done that twice now with Clinton and Obama. A narcissistic personality by the way is one that will never see themselves as anything other than perfect. Everyone else is wrong or flawed. They make bad leaders. Hopefully we won't make that mistake again with Hillary, as she fits the mold too.

    Great points one and all. Especially from Mountanman and David.

    Opposing his agenda?

    Would that be the agenda where he has FAILED to ENFORCE the laws that are already on the books that IF enforced would have STOPPED this Problem before it escalated to a TSUNAMI of lawlessness!

    SomE Obama solution is for congress to write more laws that he will disagree with and will fail to enforce again?

    Fool me once liar.....shame on me!

    Fool me twice......your toast!

    Hutterite: Agreed! Now that we have that out of the way, we still have Obama. So, if your point is, just as the Bush supporters, that it is the other guy's fault, then nothing has been accomplished. Ghandi, Lincoln, and good father's and mothers know how to bring families together, something obviously sorely missing from our current President. I never point the finger of blame at one child when two are fighting! I have seen inexperienced, childish parents, however, do it a lot, often to the sad detriment of the children. Obama in every way has divided not only the congress, but our whole country! That is not leadership! He is acting like a child in almost every scenario!

    Said by the man who appointed a commission to study tax reform, then did nothing about their recommendations.
    Said by the man that refuses to take up social security reform.
    Said by the man who refuses to follow the law by securing the border.
    Said by the man whose only economic plan is class warfare and raising taxes on the rich.
    Said by the man who proposes a budget that even Democrats won't vote for.
    Said by the man who leads the Democratic party, the same party who has failed to vote on a budget in the Senate for six years.
    Said by the man who gives Congress junk, then blames Congress when it can't act on that junk.
    Said by a man who lied dozens of times: If you like your insurance plan, you can keep your insurance plan. If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. Premiums won't go up.
    Americans know they cannot trust Obama.

    A real leader is someone that can bring two sides together! A ghandi we do not have. A Lincoln we do not have! Is there any doubt that we have the most divisive, childish, unprincipled leader ever in American history--and the end is not only not in sight, but it isn't going to change and who do you think, Obama supporters, that he is going to blame? Let me just state a truth! There is no such thing as a divorce that is 50/50, nor is there such a thing as it was 100 percent the other person's fault! Anybody that believes that is under a delusion of immense proportions! As long as we have a President that doesn't want to be accountable for anything other than pointing his finger, the bizarre charade of American delusion will continue! Come on Democrats; come on Republicans, it is time to pull your head out of the sand and make a difference. Read Dietrich Bonhoeffer's book if you want to see what happens to a populace that refuses to see!

    This goes for both sides of the isle. Please, please, please have the courage to identify the real flaws in the people you vote for before you vote for them. I know the warm fuzzy for making history to elect a black president was too much to resist and now we deserve what we have received. I know the tea party was exciting and new but now look what we have. I know voting for a woman president is powerful and intriguing, but can we please think about the records of the people we are entrusting to create relevant, innovative, useful, effective policy first and foremost? I don't care if they are donkey or elephant, it is critical that we get these decisions right!

    We need a leader in the White House - not a demagogue. A leader doesn't blame - a leader leads for the good of the country apart from his personal political ambition. I actually thought that at some point Barack would set politics aside and be a leader but nothing doing. The man is simply incapable of leading. His rigid ideology and his political ambition trump anything as far as the country is concerned. Baracks personal approval is nearing the 30% range in most states even purple states so people see through his thinness and pettyness. Even liberal NBC is scratching their head as well as CNN. The king has no clothes and everybody sees it. Terrible terrible president.So petty and small - quick to blame almost childish. Very sad for America.

    We may never know if the Republicans will vote down a good Obama idea, he hasn't put one forward yet. If he wants to talk about inaction, how about defending the borders to decrease the immigration problem? That's the most humane thing we can do and what a huge majority of Americans want but inaction is all we get from him.

    Gosh, what did Obama expect? That once elected everyone would sing Hosannas to his name and his political opposition would say, "Yes sir, Mr. President, you are exactly right! We shall do everything you want, right away!"

    If that is what he thinks, and apparently he does, then it's proof that he's an idiot.

    Still, the fact he wants no political opposition is yet another sign he's a fascist or commie at heart.

    Republicans are just demonstrating once again that they are the party of NO. This has nothing to do with whether or not Republicans think Obama has a good idea. In fact, his having a good idea is precisely why they object. It's the way politics works.

    For the life of me, I can not find one thing the GOP has stopped Obama from doing! Did they stop Obamacare (including about 29 changes Obama made in his own law)? Did they stop him from doubling the number of food stamp recipients? Did the GOP stop Obama from increasing taxes? Did the GOP stop Obama from destroying the DOMA? Did the GOP stop Obama from sending troops back to Iraq? Has the GOP forced Obama to tell the truth about Benghazi, the VA scandal, fast and furious, NSA spying, the IRS abuses? Has the GOP refuse to apply immigration laws or us that Mr, Obama? Please tell me one thing the GOP has stopped Obama from doing?

    So Obama hates people that oppose his psychotic agenda. That's not news. This is the same idiot that chided anyone who said we need to secure the border. Now there are little children dying, because this idiot refuses to tell them that there is no amnesty and they will be sent home and his refusal to secure the border. Maybe we do need a moat with alligators in it, as he stated mockingly not too long ago. Really? this is the leader that people get tingles over?

    It's too late now, but, he is now known as the worst president in recent history. Too bad Mitt wasn't elected. He's not perfect, but, he would have been much much much better than our current idiot in chief.

    Thankfully, someone is opposing and holding up Obama's agenda. He's ruining our country fast enough as it is. He needs even more opposition before it's too late.

    Obamas only agenda is to destroy the United States of America and he is doing a pretty good job thanks to a lot of dumb voters.
