    And to what extent?

    I think Obama has undeniably accomplished a lot in his first 3 years, but his over-reliance on diplomacy with Republicans has impeded critical progress.

    I'm sure the cons/repubs on here are undoubtedly going to answer this question too, but at least try and be mature about it...

    My biggest disappointment with Obama is that, in negotiations, he tends to give too much to the GOP in hopes that they'll be fair and willing partners in governance. I realize that he's trying to appeal to the middle, but at some point he's got to say enough is enough (which he SEEMS to be doing now - we'll see). If he didn't already know it, he should know by now that the GOP is not the least bit interested in compromise.

    What you already said...


    ...is the biggest reason for me. He and his admin. have also shown they're not much better than the Repubs when it comes to the big banks.

    Yes, and what I find so bizarre about it is that Repubs are constantly trying to paint him as this liberal extremist. I mean that charge is just so patently false.

    I do respect Obama's diplomatic approach, even if it is a little misguided when it comes to politics.

    Unless there has been a rule change while I've been away, I can post whatever I want, wherever I want. It's a message board, honey, there is no 'broom'.... except in your head.
