During the past four years I have closely watched our political system deteriorate especially with the House saying “no” to anything and everything that might be good for our country. I could not help but wonder how long this game was going to go on in the Republican controlled House?
Well it went on for the entire four years and is still going on currently. House Republicans aren’t helping the American people or the country with their “no” approach to everything. Yes, they stated earlier on that they wanted President Obama to fail but what they don’t realize is that the moment that they made that statement our nation had already failed.
The Republicans like to use the word “patriot” a lot but was this action by the Republicans an action of a true patriot? What bothers me most is that the current Republican candidate (Romney) can’t even apologize when he has made a mistake. This type of elitist behavior would be scary to have in the White House.
We may not always agree with President Obama but he is not a puppet President and will make tough decisions for our great nation even if we can’t see the immediate positive effects of his decision. President Obama is not above telling the American people when he feels he has made a miscalculation. This is the type of President who given time will fix the situation that was handed him by the last administration and those unforeseeable things that happened at the beginning of his Presidency.
To be honest I too was upset at some of President Obama’s choices but I knew that he made certain hard choices for our country even though they were not popular at the time. I personally don’t want a puppet President. I am voting for President Obama because he works for people’s interest. His agenda does not change from week to week like Mitt Romney’s. Our President has a goal and he sticks to it even if it is not popular at the moment. I trust our President to get this country back on track and he has my vote.

Just for the record, Tyler G. the Democrats controlled both the Senate and the House from January 2009 to January 2011.
Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but not to their own facts.

Just for the record, Mr. Jones, the Republicans also raised the bar on obstruction during those two years to levels unprecedented.

For his first two years in office Obama had a super majority, having majorities in both houses, so he could have done anything he wanted.
As for the Republicans wanting him to only serve one term, so what, they totally disagree with his redistribution ideology and vote no accordingly. When people complain about the Republicans voting no on issues, are they supposed to vote yes just because Obama says they should, even though they totally disagree? I don't think that makes a bit of sense.
Sounds like some expect the Republicans to be Obama's puppets, trust me, he already has enough puppets without the Republicans being his puppets, too.

For the record, Mr. Jones, there was another puppet in the mix throughout the President's first term. His name is Phil E. Buster, who has now presided over about 70 non-actions by the Senate. Thank goodness for Olympia Snow, who showed enough stateswomanship to put obstructionism in its place on critical issues.
In the unlikely event that the teapubs get the presidency and Senate, the chickens (oops, ganders) will come home to roost.

A Democrat's idea of "compromise" is for Republicans to agree with them. With a President that's doing everything he can to destroy America, there hasn't been enough obstruction.
By the way, just for the record, Obama is a George Soros puppet. Obama is the quintessential Manchurian candidate.

Mr Jones, from the time the Senator from Wisconsin, Al Franken was seated, and Ted Kennedy passed away, the Senate met a total of 27 days. That is the only amount of time Obama had enough of a majority to overcome Republican obstruction.
To give you an example of how unrepresentative the Republican side of the aisle has been, prior to Obama becoming President, the filibuster had been used 34 times in our history as a nation. Since taking office, a filibuster has been used over 240 times to block voting on pending legislation.
