    Are there some specific things you would like him to do (e.g., economic, budgetary, tax, foreign policy, etc.), or will you just blindly support whatever he does? It seems to be the latter, but go ahead and prove otherwise:

    My beefs with Obama?

    -Didn't close gitmo.
    -Sent more troops to Afghanistan.
    -Made multiple deals with Republican where he caved. Most notably the ACA and the Bush Tax Cuts.
    -Gave Bush credit for Bin Laden.

    Get this country out of Afghanistan in 2014 and let the Bush tax cuts expire. Those are the two reasons I voted for him.

    It's up to Boehner and the House Republicans to show they're working to save the economy. I don't agree with everything Obama's done, but he's got proposals out there, while we hear of nothing but obstruction and playing chicken with the economy from the Republicans.

    I think you just proved the latter.

    It’s interesting the extent to which the right continues to not get it, and their bizarre and inaccurate perception of the presidency.

    Millions voted for the president not because they want him to ‘do’ anything, but what they wanted him not to do…

    Not start a war with Iran.

    Not appoint reactionary judges to Federal courts.

    Not appoint justices to the Supreme Court hostile to privacy, due process, and equal protection rights.

    Not attempt to compel Congress to repeal the ACA.

    Not attempt to compel Congress to get rid of Social Security.

    Not attempt to compel Congress to get rid of Medicare.

    Not have a third Bush term.

    There are a lot of things voters support the president not doing.

    I think he should try to reach an agreement to fix the budget.

    BUt that has to end the giveaways to the rich Bush gave them.

    We need to control entitlements.

    We need to cut back on outrageous military spending.

    We need to invest in repairing infrastructure.

    the 2012 election was an affirmation of the Administrations policies and agenda.

    You know you are such a political hack it is sickening and then you dare to question others responses and motives.
    No wonder the republican rightwing nuts cannot win the presidency.
