Obama has succeeded in convincing American's that they are no longer exceptional, they are to blame for the state of the Union, and they better just adapt because it's not getting any better.

As much as I agree with the OP, if I had to do it again, I'd still vote for him. McCain scared the hell out of me. No matter how bad it seems now, it could be much worse.
I guess the lesson I learned was to never vote for either party ever again. Ever.
The Republican Party is one of the two major contemporary political parties in the United States, along with the Democratic Party. Founded by anti-slavery expansion activists in 1854, it is often called the GOP (Grand Old Party). The party's platform generally reflects American conservatism in the U.S. political spectrum and is considered center-right, in contrast to the more center-left Democrats.
Conservatism in the United States is a concept which has evolved over the history of the country, encompassing somewhat different political stances in various eras. The history of American conservatism has been marked by tensions and outright contradictions, with intellectual debates not only between types of anti-communists and anti-statists, but between traditionalist and individualists who affirmed the primacy of religion, politics, or economics
The Democratic Party is one of two major contemporary political parties in the United States, along with the Republican Party. The party's social liberal and progressive platform is largely considered center-left in the U.S. political spectrum. The party has the lengthiest record of continuous operation in the United States, and is one of the oldest political parties in the world. The party had 72 million registered voters in 2004
Without a qualifier, the term "liberalism" since the 1930s in the United States usually refers to "modern liberalism", a political philosophy exemplified by Franklin Delano Roosevelt's New Deal and, later, Lyndon Johnson's Great Society. It is a form of social liberalism, whose accomplishments include the Works Progress Administration and the Social Security Act in 1935, the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Community Reinvestment Act and the Voting Rights Act of 1965.
According to Louis Hartz, liberalism in the United States differs from liberalism elsewhere in the world because America never had a resident hereditary aristocracy, and so avoided the worst of the class warfare that swept Europe.

Some of what you said it's true even quotes, you make millions you are able to spend millions to fix things...
I hate the fact that people expect someone to fix something, it isn't easy as say lets stop this, think about this before you rant, what has been set in motion can be stopped at once? can it? yet as a second we chose the best of the worst, lately we only have two options and that it's it.
Ron paul next year thats how we fix things.
do that and vote right, don't disappoint like you did before.
