  •  I only mentioned FDR getting (0+ / 0-)

    re-elected with a higher than 8% unemployment rate because you had erroneously stated in the comment above that President Obama was the only president to have ever done so.

    Also from Wikipedia on the passage of the ACA:

    The House passed the bill with a vote of 219 to 212 on March 21, 2010, with 34 Democrats and all 178 Republicans voting against it.[1
    Furthermore, my statement about FDR's passage of SS and LBJs passage of Medicare was not in the interest of holding him as some "paragon of political strength" over Obama.  But rather was intended to be about the degree of the current GOP's intransigence towards the president.

    I feel you have cherry picked a word or two you disagree with from my diary and all my comments here and tried over and over to pull me into an argument about it.  Well, you'll get no argument from me that Barack Obama is one smart, tough competitor, a thoughtful man of great grace and dignity, who I am proud to have as my president.  

    I'm not interested in any further argument about semantics.  We've both said our peace.  Let it go.
