The republicans have tunnel-vision & are acting like bratty jerks. I'm so tired of ALL the BS from all parties---but I can't stay and rant because I have to go to drating work now.

It's funny - when the teabagger/Republicans try to do satire, they come across as bigger idiots than their victims.

Those are the issues that Obama and Democrats are using time in trying to hurdle. Republicans in the House and Senate vastly oppose most of the measures that are being introduced without adding much input.

Even then, there is a lot that even Obama and the government can't fix.

People need jobs and a lot of the private sector is still sitting on its thumbs unsure of the future and that's dragging a lot of people either financially and/or psychologically down.

I never expected Obama to fix all the things wrong with the country, and I wouldn't have expected McCain to do it either.

Most people just have unrealistic expectations for what he can/can't do in a term without support from both parties.

@justjason44

Uh, you need 60 votes in the Senate to end a filibuster. There are 59 Democrats in the Senate.

And as stated in my last post which I can only assume you missed, Obama is still trying to gain support and input from Republicans on these issues, that's what's keeping him from passing the stuff he wants.

He's trying to do this mainly to try to get the parties to be less divided when these issues that they will be voting on impact all.

And Obama doesn't really start and end the laws, he can't just say he wants something and it happens, it has to be voted on in the house, senate, then he can sign it into law.

Look at the Health care bill, 219 to 212, not a single Republican supported the bill, and 34 Dems against, in the Senate it was 60-39, they managed to get the independants on board but all Republicans were against it there too.

@SephirothA83

Not to be a jerk, but you do realize Obama could have passed anything he wanted. At no point did he need Republican support, if you look at the numbers. The Democrats hold enough seats in both houses to pass anything without Republican support.

But they haven't. Why? Because there are Democrats who are obviously not signing on to tow the "company line".

That's one argument I keep hearing... however, there is no need for bipartisan, by the numbers. Unless of course not all of the Democrats are on the same page.

Also, a big portion of where Obama has failed in getting things done is his interest in making decisions in the Senate and House with bipartisan efforts.

Republicans want nothing to do with Obama no matter what the cause is, and continuing to try to vie for their support is wasting valuable time during this recession where public support is waning among both parties.

It's good to have the support and to brainstorm ways to improve our fragile state, but the sides are so divided it wouldn't surprise me if Obama pushed for less gun laws, opposing that Mosque in NYC, or raising taxes on the poor and dropping them for the rich, they'd still oppose it.

@k10josumm

I don't think you actually know what the word 'literally' means.

http://www.politifact.com/

Also, if you're not going to vote, then no one really cares what your opinion is. Voting is your right to make decisions on important laws, amendments, bills, etc. that can and will change your life. If you see the parties as just Dem or Rep then you're not helping any independent candidates that you may prefer to vote for.

Do all politicians lie? Sure probably, but so does everyone, but the least you should do is find a candidate to believe in or that supports the same ideals you do. Otherwise if you're going to bitch about a candidate but not the audacity to vote then you should keep yourself out of any political and government discussions since you don't care enough to voice your opinion.

"And he's black and a good 40% of america appears to still be racist."

True. Most black people are racist.

@jfunkhsr

it's because he didn't automatically fix all the problems in America that have been mostly ignored the past 10 or so years.

If this painting influences a single person's vote, we deserve the broken system that we currently have.

No one in America sees this as amazingly childish? Do people vote based on who can draw the best pretty picture?! :D
