Obama's failures are the founding fathers' faults.
Bush did it with the help of the TEA party and Sarah Palin!
Obama's ego will not allow him to admit his failures are his own.

    Obama thought he was just going to walk into the presidency and change the contitution, he did not know about the resistance he was going to encounter. So now he is very unhappy that he could not rush his total agenda through.

    he's become a truly pathetic creature, this Mr. Obama ... someone will write a play about how his self-aggrandizement and inherent self-loathing caused him to serve only one term as POTUS and then fell even farther from grace thereafter ... a genuinely pathetic story, kinda like "King Lear" or "Macbeth" or something similar

    The Founding Fathers limited the Presidents power in the Constitution and he hasn't forgiven them for that. If Congress and the courts weren't so gutless Obama would be residing in the Crowbar Motel.

    LOL....I'll take it that the last choice was meant to be "other",right?!

    I would just say how very sad that the hate for this President is so palatable that there is no chance for us to come together and even try and communicate. There was not one decision, policy, piece of legislation that I ever agreed with that GW gave out while he was President but I never felt the contempt, vitriol, disrespect or outright hatred that is spewed by the Right for this President each and every day, 24/7, We can thoroughly disagree ideologically and that's okay. Our differences don't make either of us wrong, just different. But this petty vindictivness that permeates the Right is so palatable that if nothing else I can understand more clearly why there can never be compromise, civility or respect for each other. Its simply beyond most of the Right's ability. How incredibly sad is that?

    Well said, and I feel the same way. I think this kind of vitriol is backfiring, though. It's a little like the boy who cried wolf - with all the BS that is used to criticize this president, legitimate complaints are lost in the mix.

I come from long time living, learning thru experience and life. I am not a "liberal sympathizer", I am an unapologetic Liberal period. I find absolutely nothing in the Republican Right Wing Agenda that I would ever support or condone because in the last 30 years there has not been a policy, decision or legislation that they have enacted that I approved or would vote for. Simple as that.

    ". . . proof he is a socialist"? My, What an ACTIVE imagination! Just as Chicken Little started a "sky is falling" hysteria based on a falling acorn, so too are various critics pushing a "socialist" or "Marxist" Obama hysteria based on Obama's economic policies. Not only do they conveniently forget that the 2008 bailout was initiated by the Bush administration, but they also seem to have forgotten some basics from Econ 101. They could easily avoid such non sequitur nonsense by following the evidence instead of jumping to conclusions.

    According to dictionary.com, socialism is "a theory or system of social organization that advocates the vesting of the ownership and control of the means of production and distribution, of capital, land, etc., in the community as a whole. In Marxist theory, it is the stage following capitalism in the transition of a society to communism, characterized by the imperfect implementation of collectivist principles."

    Please note that it is the stage FOLLOWING capitalism. Capitalism has many forms in a mixed economy, with public (collective) ownership of various enterprises based upon economic conditions. Limited public ownership does not comprise Marxist socialism, which requires complete public ownership. When controlled by a police state, however,...

In Marxist theory, it is the stage following capitalism in the transition of a society to communism, characterized by the imperfect implementation of collectivist principles."

    Please note that it is the stage FOLLOWING capitalism. Capitalism has many forms in a mixed economy, with public (collective) ownership of various enterprises based upon economic conditions. Limited public ownership does not comprise Marxist socialism, which requires complete public ownership. When controlled by a police state, however, limited public ownership may become fascism ("national socialism"), Marxist socialism, or even "perfect implementation of collectivist principles." Limited public ownership occurs at virtually every point on the mixed economy spectrum.

    Every advocate of greater government economic control might be called a "socialist," but none are true socialists unless they advocate the complete elimination of private enterprise, which requires the complete replacement of capitalism with collectivism. True (laissez-faire) capitalism means zero government control of private enterprise, which is economic anarchy. Neither of these extremes works in the long run. Every successful economy is a mixed economy, existing somewhere on a spectrum between both extremes. Every successful economy is part capitalist and part socialist. They all contain a mix of private and public ownership, and they all have some government control of private enterprise. The only relevant question is "WHERE on this spectrum can we achieve the greatest success?" The rise of Asian economies, with their varying degrees of centralized planning, proves that economic planning helps economic development.

    Both laissez faire capitalism and true communism are artificial constructs, as impossible to sustain as cold fusion. Every successful society requires private enterprise regulated by public policy, regardless of Ayn Rand's fantasies. Extremists on either fringe are equally delusional. In some ways regulation is a necessary evil like body fat: too much or too little are both lethal. The normal tendency is to add layers with age. The challenge is to find the level that will produce the optimum outcome, all things considered.

    Unless someone advocates the complete replacement of capitalism with collectivism, they do not truly advocate socialism or communism. To accuse them of either, when they have not explicitly advocated as much themselves, suggests either unfamiliarity with mixed economies or intellectual dishonesty. Even George W. Bush and John McCain were accused of advocating socialism based upon their support of 2008 bailout legislation.

    The bottom line is simple. If you consider any variation of a mixed economy, including ANY public ownership or regulation of industry to be "socialism," then the United States and ALL other economies are "socialist." The debate is over, because by that definition we have been "socialist" since the 18th century. If you only consider complete collectivism to be "socialism," according to Marxist theory, then no successful economy is actually "socialist." The closest to a Marxist socialist economy is the economic basket case, North Korea. If you consider socialism to occur at some other point on the spectrum between unregulated capitalism and Marxist socialism, then any such point would be arbitrary.

    To accuse a mixed economy advocate of being a socialist or communist suggests that you believe that ANY degree of government regulation qualifies as "socialism," or that you believe that any regulation beyond an indefinite "trigger point" qualifies as "socialism,", and that YOU get to set the trigger point. The "trigger point" explanation reminds me of the egocentric explorer who says that anyone who explores farther into dangerous territory is a fool, but anyone who doesn’t explore as far as he does is a coward. His arrogance presumes that his own boundaries are common standards.

    Marxist "socialism," in contrast to European "democratic socialism," requires collective ownership of the means of production in lieu of capitalism. That is the death of private enterprise. We may or may not be on a path to collectivism, just as a dating couple may or may not be on a path to pregnancy. Traveling on a path in any direction does not imply any specific goal. For example, traveling on Interstate 10 does not imply that either coast is the goal.

    "Direction" is one thing. "Goal" is another. All mixed economies exist at some point in the spectrum between the fatal terminuses of unregulated capitalism and true socialism. In history, socialism/communism was reversed and capitalism reappeared as people recognized the lethal consequences of such extremes. Russia, China and other communist nations now recognize the virtue of mixed economies. They learned the hard way.

    I await empirical evidence, instead of specious speculation, that Obama wants to eliminate capitalism by moving to that extreme. To say Obama advocates the goal of socialism, based upon his movement on the spectrum instead of being based on his explicit advocacy, is to create a straw man. It is intellectually dishonest and unworthy of serious debate.

Sure there is plenty of room to share the congressional stalling. But his flaunting of the Constitution, disrespect for America, love of all things non American, believer in socialism and centrally managed federal economy. He is the man that knows all yet whines and moans constantly. I am so disappointed in him as a man and leader. My grandfather, father and I severed in our military in wars of our own.
