I just got a bit infuriated at this load of garbage titled “Republicans Across The U.S. Are Trying To Disenfranchise Voters – What Are You Going To Do About It? “
Shudder. One again, we see liberals ensuring that the only people who don’t vote on time are poor, non-white immigrants. Talk about stereotyping and seeing past race. Let’s keep on letting dead people vote, too. JFK definitely wasn’t elected by any vote tampering in Chicago, right?
Read what I posted below (in the comments section of the above article) about Obama’s miserable failures – in just the first 2 years of his presidency!
“After all, most of the Republicans in these state legislatures rode in on then same wave of apathy and downright stupidity that allowed the Republicans to get control of the U. S. House. All those whiny people who weren’t happy that Obama didn’t do everything all at once and decided to stay home and teach him a lesson also stayed home from elections that decided who their local and state elected officials would be. And now they’re paying for it.”
Obama knew that midterms would come up. Should he have focused more on domestic issues in the first 2 years?
But he had a failed record on domestic issues when the Dems had total control of Congress and the White House. Multiple stimulus packages, a horrendous healthcare law (that was, and still is, opposed by a majority of Americans all over the political spectrum), virtually ignoring the BP oil spill site/Gulf Coast for days – and then botching cleanup efforts between the govt and BP, a shutdown of new offshore drilling, the Dodd-Frank law, failing to close Gitmo, not being clear or inspiring on Iraq/Afghanistan, increasing the federal debt, ignoring entitlement reform, and having net job loss (Even by now, 22 months of economic ‘growth’ has not made up everything Obama lost before), all caused Democrats to be pushed back. Parties in power always get punished for bad things, even if some of them are not in the hands of the party. For our president to say he’s going to turn around everything, and then claim he never had the ability to – well, that’s just him trying to save face for the fact that his policies failed.
Everyone says that he inherited a bad economy, but he had 2 years to implement whatever policies he wanted. Two years to do whatever he wanted to turn around the economy – which he promised he would do. He blew it off, and whatever he did pass did nothing but slow industries, hamper job growth, and, frankly, piss off a majority of Americans. If you think all those people are dumb, well, you’ve been duped. Even now, his policies have had no substantial effect. Our economic growth is tiny, the dollar is weak, and the major reason unemployment has gone down is because of people leaving the workforce (specifically, it’s responsible for 4/5 of the changes to the unemployment rate). Just last week, 365,000 people applied for unemployment benefits for the first time. Not promising.
