    What will it take for progressives/liberals/Democrat whatever to admit that Obama has screwed up and is a terrible president?
    Every campaign promise has been broken. Far from repudiation Bush's policies, he has furthered them. Far from bringing single payer, he did not push it. S&P has warned of a downgrade. Is there any better rebuke than this? Every metric is worse now than when he took office.
    So what would make his supporters suddenly change their minds?

    He has done what we wanted.

    Single Payer he took off the table but had a huge healthcare law that was passed that isn't perfect but is very good.

    Passed the stimulus that has worked and created jobs to improve infrastructure.

    Regulations for credit cards and Wall Street.

    Is he perfect? Hell no. Has he done things that pissed me off? Sure.

    Does that mean I will vote Republican so they can change the country into something like Somolia?


    HELL NO.

    spoken like a true puppet.

    Stimulus is a known failure.
    infrastructure jobs are temp jobs, at best.
    CC regs have driven rates up
    Wall street only people making money

    And you claim the reps are gunna 3rd world us?

    wake the fuck up and smell the fuckover. You've been had, and you liked it.

    yes he is bad but he hasn't had a terrorist attack destroying building and killing thousands, or invaded 2 countries, or passed a 7 trillion dollar medicare expansion that wasn't paid for.

    A known failure? You mean the countless infrastructure improvements that although were temporary, PAID PEOPLE TO WORK WHICH MEANS THEY SPENT THE MONEY!!! That may not have changed the situation but it helped stop the bleeding.

    CC raise rates is fine with me, at least they can't just raise rates without my knowledge and putting more fees after fees to destroy this country. That is more important to me that the CONSUMER HAS RIGHTS. I know you hate people having rights but I actually believe in rights.

    How many times do I have to say he is a 3rd Bush term?

    Partisan parrots do not change their minds, they are not capable of it.
    Same with either party.

    But Bush in his worst avatar. Bush was basically a very nice guy who actually cared about people. Obama thinks he's always the smartest guy in the room.
    He is the Bush of prescription drug benefits, steel tariffs, and other big government initiatives. But with an added dose of clueless.
