lauriloo- Actually I did notice. He's actually fighting for the masses, just hope he keeps it up. It just seems like he usually bends. Even though the GOP never give a plan of their own besides cut entitlements that were working fine under Clinton.

"If he went to the American people and explained what he's trying to do and why, most of us would side with him when he's right."

I guess you haven't been paying attention to everything Obama has been doing to get his message out to people lately in social media and rallies across the USA. The GOP is complaining that he is acting like he is still running for office because they don't like him making sure all of us know what is going on and who is blocking what. AND they are surprised that he is showing no signs of backing down on the promises people voted for, unlike all the concessions he made during his first time because he naively believed the GOP was willing to do what it takes to make a deal everyone can agree with.

Its funny that Obama continually bends to them, I think he's a closet republican (or being bought by the same people). If he went to the American people and explained what he's trying to do and why, most of us would side with him when he's right.

@5cats: History of the Filibuster Really? The GOP has created a total lockdown of ANY progress, abusing a means that should have been eliminated decades ago. The republicans are extremely radical, they most often have NO IDEA what to do, they only know that they are supposed to disagree and fight with the opposing party, much like CrakrJak. They have no plan, no purpose, no clear path to achieve peace and prosperity in America, they just blab hate and oppression and say it's because they love jesus. drat, you republicans are so lost. America lost ALL CREDIBILITY during the 8 years of BUSH in office, not the 4 years of obama. How drating deep in denial can you morons be?

I believe its going to take a great leader to get us out of this mess. Obama isn't that. Its gonna be tricky though. Their going to have to lie to the corporations and lobbies to get money and get voted in. Then do whats right and hopefully not get their head blown off.

That was a great read. Sometimes it takes an outsider's view to make you see the truth about yourself.

To elaborate, what you view as "destroying things", the rest of us view as "fixing things". Get rid of the evil hatred that the church spews out. Introduce health care so you can have a healthy, working society. The way the Republicans are heading is similar to a third world country where there is a small rich community and then the poverty stricken masses.

auburnjunky:
"Patch: Fixing things?
They stop him from destroying things."
------------

That's the big difference here. To Democrats, social equalities and responsibilities are a solid foundation to a moral and strong country. To a Republican, they are trying to "take away my church and my freedom".

As long as the church has a firm grasp on the Republicans, they will continue to spread their evil and hate and the Republican party will continue to draw everyone into the middle ages. This is the main reason that the founding Fathers wanted to keep religion out of politics.

Carmium the most hilarious representation of us I've yet seen is our incarnation in Hetalia, Alfred F. Jones. Burgers and guns and all, he makes me laugh but he also makes me headdesk more often than not because it's so true.

I would need an insider's take on the EU, unfamiliar ground and all. But generally I hear it's always been pretty fractious, no one can decide what to do about certain floating eastern European countries, France enjoys sticking it's tongue out at England and England characteristically throws up it's hands and says, "It's your problem, you fix it, see if I care!"

All of which would still be preferable to debating whether or not we should let sick people go w/o health care or poor people go w/o a social safety net.

QueenZira:
I'd like to think you're right, because Americans' abysmal ignorance of the world beyond their borders (and often with them) is a standard source of humor north of the border. America as a country is one of the greatest concepts in human history, and I'd hate to see it dissolve into chaos - not that its greatest trading partner wouldn't go right along with it!

McGovern- I hear that whole "Austerity" thing isn't working too well for them, but that's about the only thing I can think of off the top of my head. We need to translate more foreign news more often, I reject the notion we're not curious about the rest of the world.

I just want our general relationship to be more collegial and less squabbly (Is that a word? Well it is now). Dueling tetch fields exhausts me.

Americans consider criticism or America to be un-patriotic whether it comes from within out without. Not listening to criticism is un-patriotic because it means you are unwilling to consider the problems, let alone, fix the country.

Why does it feel like every time we let down Europe it's like disappointing a sarcastic, overbearing but nonetheless concerned parent?


I wouldn't be to concerned with them they're doing a fine job screwing up their own countries as a whole.

Hilarious and sad how the R-tards continue to behave in this thread exactly how they were described in the article.

I blame the churches and the right wing spin machine (i.e. fox news and talk radio) for this delusional hardliner stance against reason and progress.

Its sad that people like 5Cats and auburnjunky still think that the current state of America is somehow Obama's fault. Its people like you guys who are keeping this country divided by voting for these right wing nut jobs so they can continue to filibuster everything that Obama comes up with, doesn't matter if its good or bad, they'll still block it out of spite.

Can you not look past your own prejudice to see the truth for what it is? The GOP are acting like a bunch of spiteful children simply because they don't like change. Its their fault we're not able to get out of this rut our country is in.

Anywhoo, I don't buy into all the "decline, death, Armageddon hyperbole, because that's just what it is, hyperbole. And frankly The Republic has seen *much* worse in it's history than this particular class of Rep. a$$clowns. Democracy is a messy business, it takes time and effort to work, but it will work, and we'll be dragging those Rs kicking and screaming into the future, just like we always do, for The Duration.

Ps. Kain1, I'd rather not "rule the world," imperialism turns me off. Why can't we treat each other like equals?

Auburn, are you kidding? Ron Paul is a moderate, that's pretty much the definition of a libertarian. Keep government out of things. Fiscal conservative + social liberal... he would have beaten Obama hands down.

@5Cats, The problem isn't that Obama"s a dictator, bent on destroying things, it's that every time he tries to fix the problems created by previous governments, he is stopped by the Republicans. The Republicans can't stop him from fixing things and then complain that things aren't fixed.
