  • Too many people against it. It will hurt him even more.

  • I think it is a good question. Obama keeps saying it is very important to pass it now. I'm just saying Why?

  • Because he will become a lame duck once Republicans retake control of the House and Senate in 2010, and very few Democrats or RINOS will stick their necks out in an election year. So if it doesn't pass by Christmas or very early next year, it will likely be scrapped. Whether Obama is a one term wonder or manages to (gasp) eke out a second term, if he's a lame duck, we can at least breathe a little sigh of relief!

    Clinton, some may remember, had a Republican controlled House and Senate for 6 of his 8 years, yet HE got the credit for being such a fabulous president (balancing the budget, the dot com era, low unemployment, etc). If this is what happens with Obama, he will be hailed as wonderful, and all of his obvious shortcomings of his first 2 years in office will be forgotten by the short-attention spans and lack of knowledge retention problems the majority of Americans are plagued with!

  • Which one is indeed the real question. What parts will get cobbled together in the end, and how soon WILL they get implemented? I don't see 2013 realistically happening.

    Hard to say shortcomings of the first two when we're only halfway through the first one!

    But you're right, Pres. Clinton got a lot of credit that should have been shared with the Congress. Just as Pres. Bush got a lot of BLAME that belonged equally to the Congress.

    THANK YOU! I hope people can learn from the Obama Administration that the buck doesn't stop with the President (sure he can veto things, but he cannot issue THAT many executive orders sans the approval of the House, Senate or the Supreme Court, and that the House and the Senate are the REALLY important politicians to vote for in the future! Too many people neglect to vote for midterm elections, and just tune in and show up every 4 years. This is a practice that HAS to stop, or we will NEVER be able to truly clean house, and get this country back on track!
