For our national security, the American people must recover control of our runaway, unilateral presidency that has torn itself away from constitutional accountabilities and continues to be hijacked by ideologues who ignore our Founding Fathers’ wisdom regarding the separation of powers and avoiding foreign entanglements that become costly, deadly and endless quagmires.

Why don't we charge ourselves interest instead of giving the interest to a private bank....

too late. when he was elected he called "No Taksies Backsies".
it's a shame that elections are won by "the better actor" rather than what a person actually accomplishes and the real answer was posted by the person who said "we can't blame him, he's merely just a pawn". so whether he's impeached or not the crap that goes on will continue unimpeded so we're fooling ourselves if we actually think it'll change anything or do any good whatsoever.
accept defeat or make the change.. while we're beaten into submission we still really have the power to make real changes we just need the spark to set it off.

I have to say, I do think Romney would have been better. It isn't for any partisan reasoning though. Heck, he called Ted Kennedy a friend and among my archives, I have campaign flyers of the two campaigning together in Mass on joint causes. Talk about flip sides of the same wooden nickel.
No, I think Romney would have been better for only one reason, in the end. He would have been a 1st term President and still concerned about becoming a 2nd term one, at some future point. Bush didn't go right off the deep end into la la land for ideology (in the view of many conservatives) until his second term and nothing to lose. Likewise, I thought Obama to be a bad leader but not a dangerous and reckless one until seeing his "new face" as his second term has begun.
I think there is something to be said for leaders who still have re-election to worry about. When that's gone? They have nothing to lose if they also have the muscle, charisma or a combination of both to ram through what they see as their own perfect vision of the future. We've now gotten a look at both sides, at their worst and within a decade.
