    Do you believe Obama has lived up to that aspiration?


    As a conservative, I'd say pretty well nope, in fact, mostly the opposite.

    Other than sitting at the White House while Bin Laden was whacked, I'm kinda at a loss to remember anything he's accomplished correctly for conservatives....:dunno:

    .

    My biggest disappointment of his presidency so far. He had a perfect opportunity, THE perfect opportunity, to at least try to bring people together. Who better equipped, on multiple levels, to do so?

    His performance on the economy can be debated, given the global nature of the meltdown. But he has done nothing in this area. The country needed someone to put himself on the line, show some bravery, and he has clearly chosen not to be that person.

    While I wasn't a big Clinton fan.I felt he wanted to work hard for all Americans.
    I don't feel that at all with this President.He has such anger for Business,business owners
    Capitalism,republicans,citizens who want low taxes,secure borders.

    This President is so much a man for democrats and unions and big entitlement programs
    cradle to grave government involvement.

    I don't feel like this man is looking out for 50% of the country.

    In a word..yes.

    Each and every initative that the President has pushed, included conservative input.

    Conservatives use to be for eliminating terrorists like Osama Bin Laden.
    Conservatives use to be for the indivdual mandate.
    Conservatives use to be for fiscal sanity.

    Even the stimulus package had a good amount of conservative input. The size and scope were outlined by conservatives. After 2010..Obama extended the Bush tax cuts..in deference to Conservatives.

    The underlying problem that Obama has just come to realize is that conservatives simply will not tolerate anyone else but a conservative in the White House.

    They impeached the last President who was not a Conservative.

    Conservatives impeached Bill Clinton. That's after they obstructed his agenda by closing down government, twice.

    They hated him. And wanted him out of office.

    He's only President of the Blue States. He's lawlessly and recklessly undermining Arizona, trying to convert it to a criminal filled Blue State like he promised to do to Texas

    All true except for the last line; they impeached the last President that was not a Republican.

    Anyone who lays all of the blame at the feet of Obama for not bringing TWO sides together--TWO being the operative word there--is not telling the whole story.

    I think the American people understand that and this is why Obama is getting his 2nd term.
