    for not doing something that only Congress can do.

    It is non-reality based to compare the current President to what you think a dead President would have done in his place.

    It is non-reality based to expect the President to do stuff that no President ever has done.

    Pretty basic.

      that Nancy Pelosi could move just about anything through the House and that Reid had a supermajority in the Senate and then a sizeable majority later on.

      Ignoring the political capital that was squandered and complaining that while he had as much or more as any modern President that it wasn't enough is also pretty basic. Basically ignorant.

          be solved if we had cloned President Obama and he could be leader in the Senate and the Speaker of the House simultaneously?  How innovative.

          I guess it's too much to ask that he be able to work with Democratic leadership and be able to capitalize on majorities in the House and Senate. With implausible deniability like that it's a wonder that he is not a complete reincarnation of Reagan.
