    reform efforts. He can promote the bill and ultimately sign it or correspondingly veto it.

    He's relevant and noteworthy in the legislative process and his support or lack there of can effect outcomes.

      Of course he's the President.  Of course he's a part of it.  But you damned well know that the real obstruction will come from the Republicans.

      Instead of wailing every time Obama "caves" and then shrugging when Republicans give us the finger because you take their obstruction for granted, why don't you put your money where your mouth is.  If you insist that Obama should move mountains, then OWS should try to do the same and figure out how to win back the House and Senate.

      The only focus should be on those Republican bastards and their repeated and cynical attempts to disenfranchise voters and piss on this country every chance they get.  We are not well served by this false equivalence between Obama and the Republicans.
