    the fact that the government has shrunk really isn't something  I believe is attributable to President Obama but actually a blight done by the republicans in DC and across this nation.  At a time of great difficulty, the gotp fired workers and then blamed the President for the loss of jobs.

    by the way.. regarding the people wanted something different in 2010 - a lot of that is thanks to the media covering the koch brothers teaparty and all the birther crap for so long, even in the WH Press Corp the president was asked about his birth certificate.  The constant repeated crazy and lies by the media helped the Koch Brothers teaparty, I remember watching CNN and watching them have cameras covering corner teaparty events of 5 or 6 people, until the crowds eventually became larger (helped again by the Koch brothers - grass root movements do not blow up like this did it was a manipulation reported on over and over - getting the media to report facts is difficult, getting them to cover the crazies is easy)
