If Obama could have written the laws then we would have seen the change he promised. However he can't write the laws. While both houses were majority
Democrats in his first two years, there still wasn't enough of a quorum in both houses to get anything passed without huge republican input. As a
result you can't blame Obama for lack of progress, but instead the Republicans which wouldn't let anything that would really help us get through.
The fact that Tea Party conservatives became active for the first time that I remember in my lifetime and voted in 2010, and turned the tide on
Democrat control, shows that were it not for the half of the US who is not into socialism, the welfare state, and radical environmentalism, Obama
would not have had to write all the laws. All the Alinskyite Organizers were not expecting conservatives to become organized and make a difference.
Not everyone wants Universal healthcare and big Nanny Statism. Obama cannot do what he wants just because he wants it. That is the great thing about
our Democratic Republic.
As for the Republicans not letting anything get through, I would like to remind you that half the US still wants the free market and rugged
individualism which made this country great, and we are not falling for the horrid Nanny Statism and Big Govt that team Obama has been pushing.
Republicans just said, "oh no you don't!"
Did I read your post right that you feel Republicans are anti Christian except for abortion? So you want Obama because you feel he is pro
Christian---except for abortion and voting to let babies who survive partial-birth abortion procedures to die in some trash can in a soiled linen
closet....yah you're right it is not Christian. Let me tell you something else, POTUS is not real Christian at all. He is a Poser when it comes to
that. I would do so far as to suggest he is a wolf in sheep's clothing on that matter of religion, a Marxist in Christian clothing if you will.
But carry on with thinking he cares anything for average Joes.
You vote for Obama you get what you deserve. I will not be a party to that or anything else he waves across the land with his magic Marxist wand.
