I could name hundreds of Governors, and many Presidents, who turned terrible situations handed to them by their predecessors into glory, Barack Hussein Obama could not. The reason he could not is because he had no desire to do so. When Newsweek, which is now a dead magazine declared “We Are All Socialists Now” and James Carville stated that Democrats would have a 40 year run because America was no longer center-right, he didn’t feel the need to. He ignored the Republicans in the House and Senate, let his radical Lefty Democrats write Obamacare and the 1T dollar stimulus with every leftist dream they had ever had contained in it, and then he signed them into law.
The Democrats in the House locked out the Republicans so that they could craft their legislation in secrecy, well, when you are doing bad things, indeed, you have to hide it. They treated those Republicans like they were trash and yet they forgot to recognize that Americans, their bosses, had elected those Republicans and that they still had power, our power. When they ignored them, they were really ignoring We The People. They assumed we had gone away, then they found out in 2010 that we had not.
Barack Hussein Obama then had a Bill Clinton opportunity to pivot to the center, again because we are a center right Country, Bill knew after the Republicans took the House that to be re-elected he needed to work with them, Obama felt no such compunction to do so. He had been told for so long that he was “The One” that he actually believed the hype, ignored the election results of We The People again and went to signing statements instead of Leadership. He will find out on November 6th, 2012, that We The People do not like being treated as if we are servants to the politicians who are elected, we will show him that we are indeed the boss of him.
Mitt Romney was a Governor of a Democrat state and for 4 years he worked with 87% Democrats and he ended up with a rainy day fund at the end – unheard of in a Democrat state. They spend everything they have and then some.
