I don't agree with anyone about everything - and certainly not with politicians, who need to think a little bit about the popularity of their decisions. But Barack Obama seems to be doing his best to make his supporters unhappy.
And Jeebus, he's supposed to be a constitutional scholar, too!
If it's not this, it's continuing to treat the Republicans with kid gloves. After all this, does he still think they'll like him if he just lies down and let them walk all over him one more time?
I'm beginning to think that Barack Obama just doesn't like being president. What else would explain his continually disappointing his own supporters like this? It's like he wants us to stay home on election day.
Of course, I won't. Have you seen the loons the Republicans are running for the presidency? Even George W. Bush would be better than those people! And do you think I care that little for my country that I won't even vote?
But Barack Obama continues to disappoint. I don't understand it. He's had three years in office now. Isn't it time that he learned something about being president, or at least about politics? Or is he deliberately trying to lose his own supporters?
Edit: OK, I'm still unhappy with Barack Obama for not vetoing that defense bill, but I've got to make one big correction here. It appears that Obama has decided to start making some recess appointments after all.
Not long after I posted this, it was announced that President Obama would make a recess appointment of Richard Cordray to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Furthermore, it also looks like he'll be making three more recess appointments to the National Labor Relations Board.
Has Barack Obama finally decided that appeasing Republicans is not getting him anywhere? We can only hope. But either way, my original post here needed correcting. My apologies.
