I don't expect the GOP to be behind Obama all the way.
I expect them to SUPPORT HIM WHEN HE IMPLEMENTS THEIR IDEAS!!!!
And if they fail to do that, then yeah, I'll call it like it is: Obstruction simply for the sake of obstruction.
Was Clinton's or Obama's HCR a Republican idea, yes or no? pickles, you jumped on board after Mike Evan's post I believe.
The model that Obama eventually went w, was a GOP proposal from the mid-90s, enacted by a GOP gov in the early 2000s.
So yeah, the ACA is really a Republican idea.
Then Obama did it, and suddenly it was unconstitutional and an assault on liberty and socialism.
Funny how that works!
However, you do so the fundamental difference between Gingrich and the opposition that has been raised against Obama these last four years right?
When Obama implements Republican policy they attack him over it.
What is he supposed to do then?
What did Clinton do? He passed Don't Ask Don't Tell, NAFTA, Wall St deregulation, DOMA, etc.
IMHO, Obama has spent more time trying to undo Clinton's mess than Bush's mess. Don't get me wrong, I like Bill Clinton but he governed as a moderate republican, not a democrat...

Now in Obama's words:LIMA, Ohio — In the final days of the campaign, President Obama has found a role model: Bill Clinton.
At every campaign stop in the waning days of the race, Mr. Obama has inserted a new reference to Mr. Clinton in his speeches, pointing to the 42nd president as the best example of a leader whose policies built a strong economy.
Don't forget to read Axelrod's comments where he draws comparisons between Clinton and Obama.“His economic plan asked the wealthiest Americans to pay a little bit more so we could continue to invest in our people, continue to invest in ideas and innovation, invest in our infrastructure,” Mr. Obama said. “By the end of President Clinton's second term, America had created 23 million new jobs, and incomes were up and poverty was down, and our deficit became the biggest surplus in history. So our ideas were tried and tested, and they worked.”
I think recently, Clinton has admitted that he regrets some of the deregulation of the banks that occurred on his watch...
Do you really think Axelrod and Obama were being sincere when campaigning? Do you think they meant to draw those comparisons? Now you have me wondering....
