For all the people saying Obama was a terrible president. How the **** do you know? The Republican majority in the House of Representatives just blocked most things Obama tried to do. In fact, Obama had more things blocked than any president in history.

The House GOP passed thirty jobs bills in the past two years; not one has been called for a vote in the Senate. In the opening days of his kim jongistration it was BHO who said "Those are fine ideas, but I'm the President, we'll do it my way." Or his own chief of staff who said "F--k 'em; we have the votes." The party of obfuscation has been the Democrats for the past four years.

The same way you guys know how Romney would be a "terrible" president.

It depends what you want from a president. I think he has some extremely backward views on some moral issues and therefore I would not support him as a president.

It's true, not only that, but shortly after Obama came into office, they required the amount of votes for a bill to pass increased by 10 votes, meaning that many that bills that would've passed under normal circumstances (such as Warren Buffet's proposal to increase taxes by a small amount on the super-rich) failed to go through.

You hear a lot of Republicans say "Obama had his chance, and he failed". The irony is, is that every chance he tried to take, he was blocked by Republicans, possibly out of vanity of their party. Well, he's got four more years now, hopefully he can get more done now.

What if that is because he had the most bad ideas in history?

That's why I said... "How the **** do you know?" Rather than, "you are definitely wrong".

For the first 2 years Obama had a Democratic Congress and the power to do anything they wanted. The preliminaries of universal healthcare went through at this time, but nothing really You need to login to view this link also included a highly liberal budget and the allowance of many of the bailouts. Obama had more of a majority in Congress than any president since probably Clinton. Also, Obama uses more executive orders than any president in history. They allow the president to go around Congress and do what he wants. I'm not positive where you got the "more things blocked than any other president" fact from, but I guess it could be plausible. The issue Obama really had was he did not deliver satisfactory to the people in his early term which made the nation freak out and vote in Republican congressman. Look at how close this election was, 49/49 for most of it and Republicans weren't even high on Mitt. If conservatives had someone better to run than a moderate flip flopper in his past, they could very well have won.

And, anyway, the point still stands. When Obama attempted to pass policies the Republicans blocked it, as I said more than ever before.
User avatar #567 to #80 - garyleneville (11/08/2012) [-]
He did not have 'the power to do anything he wanted' because there are no Whips in America and congress is a separate institution to the president.

Not to nitpick or anything, but "the highest majority of Congress since Clinton" just means he had more than Bush.

Dude I'm guessing you didn't know but Obama would've had a higher win percentage if Halo 4 didn't come out the same day as the election, so it's not really 49/49.

If Republicans had a better candidate all-round, electing one of them into office wouldn't seem like such a terrifying concept. Nowadays it feels like one party is just an affront to the other, and they're ideologically completely at odds. The Republican party is just a shadow of how great it once was, it wasn't filled with bigots who campaigned on the back of keeping all individuals from sharing equal rights, or openly integrating outdated religious beliefs into modern laws.

This has nothing to do with which party is better or anything, but if a Republican for example Mitt Romney was elected then most likely the democratic supreme court members would of retired leaving the new U.S Pres to pick 3 new judges, and since he was republican he would most likely pick 3 Republicans leaving the supreme court fully Republican, and making more opportunities for things to get done than any democrat would.

equal rights? gay marriage has been left up to the states for several years now. Republicans even believe in abortion, as long as the woman was raped or the woman's health is in danger. Republicans believe that abortion shouldn't be used as common contraception.
User avatar #479 to #122 - graphically (11/08/2012) [-]
Romney stated that he wanted to ban gay marriage as well as abortion through constitutional ammendments which would over ride the state's say on the issues.

While the majority of pro-life advocates believe that abortion shouldn't be used as commonly as contraception, they're also against the use of contraceptives as well as sex ed to younger children and advocate celibacy due to movements strong religious foundation. Completely ignoring that banning abortion is going to be killing less unborn babies, but it's going to be putting more women's lives in danger who will want abortion whether it's illegal or not. What we should be focusing on is sex education, safe sex awareness, and increasing access to all forms of contraceptives.

Did you see the stuff saying that if it was rape the baby should be kept because it was Gods will. There were high end republicans with that viewpoint.
#149 to #148 - thatonecarlkid (11/07/2012) [-]
That wasn't Mitt Romney's belief. He stated that he believed in situational abortions.
#341 to #149 - jakeattack ONLINE (11/07/2012) [-]
he also supported the personhood bill which would have banned all abortions and even some forms of contraception.
User avatar #150 to #149 - Chuckaholic (11/07/2012) [-]
I didn't say him I said some high end republicans can't remember who off the top of my head but there were several powerful ones who were a bit scary with their views on abortion, gays etc.
