  •  Unless he was a dictator (0+ / 0-)

    President Obama has done a good job considering what he is up against.  Truth is, if he was a dictator he might get more done but we don't have that kind of system here.  He will be seen as a good President.  Had he had a Democratic Congress, he would have gotten a lot more done.  As for Lincoln, wasn't there a Civil War going on during his time?  Weren't thousands killed?  Our President has ended wars.  And what about health care?  President Obama has been better than most and yes, he does care about the middle class.  But all Presidents have to work within the system of the corporate state.  Just think how frustrating it must be.  As for the scandals, they are a distraction.  We should be focusing on real problems, such as the disparity of wealth, poverty, closing Gitmo, building roads and bridges, raising minimum wage, education, etc.  This IRA thing, while not good, didn't kill anyone (like so many of wars do).  Once again, overblown and distractions.  Let's get back to focusing on what matters.
