    Alright vote me down and just bitch about the economy, the policies, the president and congress and not do a damn thing about it. Be miserable. I was merely making a suggestion.

  • No Imogine you were avoiding the FACT that this man is an utter hypocrite and the FACT that you are IN a POLITICS and CURRENT EVENTS forum whose entire existence is to discuss and debate these issues. If you dont like it might I suggest you dont COME here :)

  • He's not the first politician to say one thing and sign another.

    Some do it to pander to the polls.

    Others talk a lot and then realize that their idea of reality is a bit off once they get all the actual scope and details that only one in office would be privvy too.

    With this president I assume it's more of the former than the latter, but politics brings out my inner cynic.

  • Not that I support Obama,

    But maybe it was one of the million little things in the bill that he doesn't agree with, but passed it because the bill on the whole he agrees with.

    I see this as one of the major problems in our government. So many little things are tied into one big bill, and if you argue out all the little things, nothing will ever get done.

  • Seriously, if you don't like the way the country is being run than maybe you should take more affective approach besides complaining about it on a mom site. Try contributing ot society by voting or starting a campaign. Protest, make signs, march in Washington D.C. until the guy you don't like in the White House is out of the White House. What good does all that negative energy do here?
