I often wonder about this when it comes to administrations that are particularly polarizing. This one and the last one especially. It seems to me that opponents of Obama desperately want to see him fail, to have our country fall deeper into recession/depression, and lose ground in the middle east (the higher the US military death toll the better), all for the sake of acquiring political advantage entering into the next election cycle. And conversely, I saw the exact same sentiment spewing from the other side of the aisle during the Bush administration. As much as this disgusts me, sentiment is one thing, actively trying to make it happen is another. So please consider and discuss the following: 1. Do you think that people in positions of real influence do indeed, actively try to sabotage and undermine the efforts of the current administration to the detriment of all Americans purely for political purposes? and if so... 2. Who are they and what specifically do you think they do in their efforts to sabotage?
