U.s. Politics: Time for Change
The Presidents Own Words
President Obama- Two term President
Mitch McConnell told his party, that he would do whatever it took, it was his first priority to make President Obama a one term President. And this is how President Obama responded.
Obama said, "I would rather be a real good one term president, then a mediocre two term president."
And the American people, stood behind him and voted him into office for a second term.
In term one, he got us out of Iraq and prepared us to leave Afghanistan.
According to a Republican on the Veterans Commission, who said he didn't agree on much with Obama, but he had to praise him for what he has done for America's veterans. He said that President Obama has done more for our veterans than any president in history.
He passed a health care reform bill and the most important. He refocused on going after Bin Laden, who began the war and captured and executed the man. All of it, despite all the road blocks.
History will give this president his honor, because today's divisiveness will not allow Americans to openly praise his accomplishments for fear of retribution.
The "one term" band wagon
Several months before the election of 2012, Newt Gingrich tried to kick off the "one-term" president rally cry and it pretty much went nowhere.
Then they called in the big guns, Donald Trump. When Bush lost control of Congress, did they say, "he's done." This was big business getting involved in some distractions of their own. If big business didn't want President Obama in office, he must be doing something right.
Obama supporters came out in droves in November to show the Tea Party - Republicans that he has the support he needs to keep on doing what's best for America.
Spending is up
With unemployment down and the housing market showing some good numbers. The second part of the health care bill taking effect and with spending up. The country is slowly moving in the right direction.
What is the GOP doing today--- you don't hear them spreading their "agenda" for repealing "Obama Care" anymore.
Republicans know what's unpopular among Americans and what the party wants by repealing Obama Care, won't jive with the American people.
- They don't want coverage for children under 19 for pre-existing conditions?
- They don't want to extend the age to 26 for child coverage on your policy to help get your children through college without the added expense to your pocket book or theirs?
- They don't want to keep doctors from charging you a co-payment when you do in for preventive care like mammograms, gynecology exams, etc?
- They don't want you to save money on hospital and medical costs because you've reached your "limit" of coverage. The want to keep limits and have you drown in medical bills?
