USA is Much Worse After Obama

Rivalry Side B | Politics | Other

As the first term of President Barack Obama winds to an end it’s a fair question to ask, Are we better off after nearly four years of this administration? Is America in a better situation and does the future look brighter?

LIBERAL - 6/13/12 @ 12:21 PM:
I have no doubt we are much better off today than we were four years ago. I am very proud of President Obama and all that he has achieved so far. I am also quite happy with the overall direction he believes in taking this country. I have very few grievances/complaints where his administration is concerned. For example I don't believe someone should necessarily be fined for not carrying health insurance, though personally I don't understand why you would choose not to. Why is Guantanamo Bay still open? That is one of the few promises he has made that I'm still very upset about. While I can understand the military benefits of keeping the base open I am not the least bit happy about it still being open for the use of holding political prisoners. How can we honestly expect others to follow the example of a justice system that holds prisoners without due process of law? We must lead by example. Gitmo should be shut down for these purposes. It's not just. It's not right.

I am not totally without pessimism though. I am going to point a finger. I will point it the way of Congressional Republicans. Regardless of what anyone thinks of President Obama I call "shame" on these men and women who have deliberately stalled every effort of our government and President to fix the economy in the name of political games. It's one thing to wish failure on a President, but it's entirely another to be the cause of it. In the end it will come back to haunt them if they continue to play this bipartisan bullcrap in order to try to win an election.
