What’s missing? Let’s go back to Nice Deb’s post for the answer.
But that barely scrapes the surface of how divisive this President has been. The “hope and change” candidate who was sold as having “a first class temperament”, has proven to be a petty, thin skinned, whiny, vindictive dictator.
He started off his Presidency by telling Republicans “not to do a lot of talking”, to “get out of the way”, or “grab a broom” and help him clean up the mess they made. He mocked opponents of Obamacare, during his victory lap after its passage. He told Republicans to “get in the back seat”, and accused them a sipping slurpies while he did the hard work of getting “the car out of the ditch” not once, but dozens of times.. As the car sunk further and further into the ditch, he continued to blame Bush, and the “do nothing congress” even though Democrats had total control for two full years and every damn thing they did made things worse.
And that barely touches on the problems we’ve had with The Obamessiah. His pointed disregard for the Constitution will cause us trouble for years after he’s gone. Presidents love to invoke the precedents set by Presidents past and the shenanigans our current Chief Executive have pulled will fuel many a battle over executive power that we simply should have have to face. Barack Obama wanted to leave his mark on history and so he will, and not in any good ways at all. The GOP chould have hit him on the truly horrid things he’s done — the things that have left scars on our nation that will take many years to heal, if they heal at all. That they didn’t leads me to believe they’ll run a fairly typical campaign, like they did against Barack Obama four years ago, with similar results.
