    Dem's on this site were alluding to the fact that Obama was a failure before he was even inaugurated.  

    Pressure and criticism are great things-- but saying silly things like climate change will make or break this administration is ridiculous.

    Saying things like Obama is a sissy or sell out is not criticism.

      Democrats without mercy about their inaction on civil rights issues. I do feel like they are failing on that front, and telling them inaction is not acceptable is apart of that. I can understand and relate with peoples strong frustrations with the Democratic establishment. Frankly, the thing that made me switch from a Dem to an Indie is the financial regulation. Timothy Geithner is going to reform Wall Street? I don't think so. But I still support the President and Democratic party on a host of other things so I keep criticizing and praising alike when it is required.

        Picking Summers and Geitner to head his economic team was a huge mistake, I believe.  I'm in favor of big economic change (breaking up the "too big to fail" banks) and heavy financial regulation.  Other than that, I'm right with him and ready to fight the Blue Dogs to force congress further to the left.

        A lot of the criticism of Obama on this site is, I think, of the variety "I can bad-mouth my brother, but you better not."

        be a stain on Obama's presidency, and would be considered a great failure of his administration. Especially given the recent weeks of Bush and Cheney literally admitting to their own guilt.

        and now that he has surrounded himself with center-right people there is no way in hell he'll start getting these things when he withdraws into the Presidential cocoon.

        Obama is looking for republican not democrats. Hope is been replace with bipertisanism.
        Please look for Tom delay or Senator Lot those are the people Obama is looking for now. Tell Sebelius to start getting ready for 2012

        I've seen established folks saying basically the same thing since Obama started announcing nominees.

        Heck, I've seen worse directed at Obama lately.

          "Dems" on this site? Admit it; You pull some turds out of the punchbowl and call the site all full of "Obama is a failure" because it feeds into your Big Tent persecution complex.

            handle the truth.  Just because you write " you've haven't got shit" doesn't make it true. Admit it; Instead of refuting my argument- you just name call like a second grader.  I can do this all day if you want.  This is too easy for me ;)
