    this administration fallen short on, that wasn't largely due to an obstructionist Congress?

    Obama's biggest successes have been in his Comnmander-in-Chief role, largely because it isn't dependent on Congress.

    Domestic issues are another story...imagine if he were entitled to CiC style powers over the economy...

    •  Combo fall short and overr-reach. (0+ / 0-)

      I think this administration has  been willing to throw millions of unemployed people under the bus and acted with cynical political calculation in its:

      1. Disbursement of TARP funds,
      2. Enactment of large pork-rich "stimulus" package that would come back later to hamstring efforts to actually get people back to work
      3. Willingness to look the other way while millions suffered so that health insurance company welfare act could be passed.

      Am also highly disturbed by Supreme Court ruling on ACA. At this point, the two recent decisions that, in my sure to be disregarded opinion, take the clearest steps down the road to fascism have both been carried by the so-called liberal justices, ie, Democratic appointments.

      And -- OH!
      The Republicans didn't get their 1 measly house of Congress until 2010.  Which is why the President was able to get those big nasty bills passed that he got passed.
