he say he would open meetings and expose commitee's to the light of day to end the behind the door deals. What happened with the healthcare bill?
What happened is the democrats went behind closed doors and literally changed the locks.
Then they complained that Republicans are being 'obstructionist.'
He lied. Duh! He would sell his soul to win...oh yeah...he already did! Unfortunately, the price he got for it was paid by all of us.
its online for people to read. Everyone has given input. Hearings are on television. He can't do anything about meetings at congress.
It has been an open public debate for six months.
If I'm not mistaken, I believe the bill was constructed behind closed doors without anyone outside the Democratics present. So if I understand you correctly he has no influence over his own parties majority in congress?
Would you prefer the bill were constructed in an open forum? Doesn't seem very efficient... The difference is that Obama puts it out to the public before going through with it. I think the level of transparency under the Obama administration is unheard of in most other American presidents, let alone in other countries. If he weren't so open to criticism, it wouldn't matter what people like us on this forum say.
How many important bills did Bush make public before passing to allow the public to judge it for themselves? Certainly not all those that allowed the government to tap our phones...
That's not the only thing. Obama said Afghanistan was the good war. He can't seem to make the decision to send in the reinforcements that the general asked for to complete the mission in the good war. There is now talk that it is Al Qaeda that is the problem not the Taliban - so does this mean we're not going to finish what we started in Afghanistan?
I really don't think he's up to the job. Between his numerous bouts of golf and gym workouts where is he going to find the time to run the country and handle the international problems?
Please don't let him let those patriotic Americans that have been killed and wounded stand for nothing.
The president said to the troops in Jacksonville last week, that he wouldn't “rush the solemn decision of sending you into harm’s way...I won’t risk your lives unless it is absolutely necessary...And if it is necessary, we will back you up to the hilt.”
If your generals going public with their need for troop support doesn't tell you it's necessary you're probably not looking for direction from them.
No matter what Sneak- , American soldiers aren't dying in vain. There are scores of Afghanis and Americans who appreciate and mourn their sacrifices and that's the story history will tell.
Doesn't matter now...start reading the legislation. This congress can't be trusted. Read, write...spread the word. This health care bill is a nightmare! And...NO you won't be able to keep your private coverage under all circumstances!

I'm aware that this is an election year. I know that everyone is entitled to their opinions. But over the last year and a half, I've noticed some blatant forms of disrespect being directed at President Obama. Why? Is it...

This may be a bit over the top, but we must remain vigilant, especially when we see years of case law, and constitutional law circumvented with each new crisis an excuse to pass more laws restricting freedom or...

Maybe the word hate is a little strong. So why do people dislike President Obama and the way he is running the country? Are you an Obama fan? Yes, no, what is your opinion of Obama and his policies?

I am not saying ALL Republicans are, I am just wondering why anyone would actually stay with a party that is clearly not on the same page as most of America? Most (not all) but most who are die hard right Republicans...
