The real problem for Obama is that none of his policies lived up to its billing. Instead of 4% economic growth, more middle-class opportunities, lower insurance premiums and a thriving “green” energy sector, we have a stagnant economy, declining wages, rising insurance and energy prices, and $5 trillion more debt.
But let’s say liberals were right, and the Republicans did manage to thwart “large pieces” of Obama’s agenda. What does that say about Obama? Reagan, after all, was able to get his agenda through a Congress dominated by the other party.
Does the left really want to argue that Obama was such a pathetic leader that he couldn’t get his policies enacted even with huge Democratic majorities in the House and Senate? And that because of this we should give him a second term?
No wonder liberals only want to talk about Todd Akin.
