Putting billions in tax breaks into your Stimulus just to get Filibuster Party support was bad. Caving in to tax breaks for billionaires just to save unemployment for millions of struggling Americans was even worse. Then you went and agreed to a Republican deal on the debt ceiling just to save the world economy, Medicare, Pell Grants for students and help for disabled Americans. And see what you got? Republicans blaming you for following their policies of tax breaks for the wealthy and tax cuts on programs that help the majority of Americans. You knew this was going to happen when Republicans said "Let the car companies fail" and "we want the president to fail" and "our only goal is to bring down this president". They have followed their promises perfectly. They even tried to take credit for getting Bin Laden. You need to get out of Washington and present your case to the American people. Do what 80% of Americans want. Do that and the rest will come. There is a nation to "rebuild". We have spent the last 12 years tearing down what Democrats have built up. Following Republican policies is the road to ruin. No one on this board can even name a single Republican Policy that has done anything in the last 12 years that's actually helped America (except for the rich). Remember, it took a Democratic president to get a single terrorist. They couldn't even do that one thing.
