More Left / Right nonsense!
When did any incoming administration ever repeal or roll back the unpopular or insane legislation that the previous one was supposedly voted out for?
All the Left / Right idiocy is nothing more than a construct to keep the sheeple from uniting against the whole damn lot in an organised fashion. Keep the people divided and they remain safe in their ivory towers! What's sad though is that so many people seem blinded by all the media fed BS and partisan nonsense, and are not able to look at the bigger problem of career politicians milking the system and answering to big money and corporations, but never the voters.
It's the same everywhere that we have a mainly 2 party system with career politicians. The leadership are always groomed by the big money interests behind the curtain and are NOT chosen by the people. The lower ranks will simply vote along the party line in order to hopefully climb the political ladder and get a piece of the action from the lobbyists and "special interest" money.
Simply blaming the current man at the top is pointless and ignores the fact that many of the things being done on his watch, have actually been building up and planned way before he ever got there. Continuing bailouts, increasing warfare, corporate and banking crimes and non-prosecution are covered by the members of both main parties, and have been the way for a lot longer than the current administration and president have been in power.
Where is our "Leader" in the White House? anyone? Can't lead when you are far to occupied pointing fingers and hiding behind human shields...
Remember, that Obama's actions ALWAYS speak louder than his words

Obama has NOT led us into two full wars, instituted torture, passed the Patriot Act, etc. And heck, the drones were started under Bush. Bush was far more pro-corporation and big banks, and overtly so.
