Do you blame the President for the problems of the United States?
I find it really interesting that a lot of people don't know that a president can't do anything unless he has the support of the congress and senate. I don't support either of our fine political parties but I find it interesting that a lot of people don't know how the US Government really works.
Well I am not from among the savage Innocents ... I know, that
any President of the United States of America ... is only a "Political" SpokesMAN ... till such time, a Lady comes along ... then, the President will be called, America's SpokesPERSON ...
And what a HUGE "CHANGE" that will be !
Anyway ... US President, Obama ... is presently, the one ... at the "receiving end" of a worldwide abuse ... for Actions, of the US government ... what in Reality, are the "effect" of foolish Acts Passed ... or "Billed" by those ... whom you call, your Senators and Congressmen ...
Let me give you an example ...
A US Senator, recently moved a Bill, Proposing, Division of the Geographic Frontiers of Pakistan... Suggesting, US Government ... Re-carving, or help in Re-carving a Sovereign, Independent State ... Pakistan !
Why and How ...
Because, the Senator happens to be a "lobbyist" ... meaning one hired against payment, or expecting a Reward, from the Owners ... of the USA ... what in this case, are the Anti-Pakistan Elements, in your Government ... namely, Pakistan's arch enemies, Hindu Extremists of India and the Israeli Zionists.
The Fallout of the Bill, in Pakistan, is the huge Anti-USA Backlash ...
The Backlash, is at the wrong place and time ...
And Obama's State Department ... has ever since the Bill [not Clinton] ... been trying to ease the situation ... but ... no one can appease all the Parties, at the same time ...
This leaves the Corporate alternative of Invading Pakistan ... to appease the two fools and their Arms Manufacturing Corporations This will lead
to further Complications ... or the US Public, presented a new Face as the Next American President ...
It would be ridiculous to blame any single person - even if that person happens to be President - for all of a nation's problems. Personally, I will judge President Obama more by his behavior in a second term (if he has one) than the first. Since he has been in crisis mode since entering office - due to the financial crisis that began before his election - he has had to support drastic measures to prevent an even worse mess. But at some point, if he is a decent leader, he will need to call Americans to make sacrifices in the form of higher taxes and government spending cuts. Then, as you stated in your question, it would be up to Congress, a fact that does not give me much hope.
So is everything that is going wrong the fault of the President? Of course not. Are there things he could have done better so far? Of course. But his powers are limited, and we live in a society that elects its leaders. And unfortunately, calling for sacrifices and asking people to support what is good for a nation over the long run are not effective strategies for winning elections.
i'm Canadian but i blame the people of the U.S. 100% for the problems they are having. it isn't the government that is messing up their country, it is the people though they love to blame the government.
Not for the problems, but you might ask a question or two about the proposed solutions. Leadership is everything.
The way I see it is Obama is not to blame for the problems of the U.S., he is just one more of the nation's problems.
No, but I blame this president for his incompetence and bad faith in failing to propose realistic solutions for some, and for making others worse.
The President, no matter who he is, can't get anything done with a Congress that will not move on anything constructive and a House of Reps.whose majority's sole aim is to keep him from being reelected.
Not at all. Even if by some amazing event, the United States became politically united, the entire government could not solve our problems. A united effort of government, business, and the vast majority of our citizens, working for a couple of generations, might make some good headway. Problems we've been creating for centuries can't be solved in 4 or 8 years. And problems created by endless internal divisions can't be solved until we come together in a unified effort respectful of our uniqueness and differences.
Such cooperation appears to be a long way away. And even so, we can each be a part of the solution if we choose. And any one of us has as much power to make a difference as anyone else. It doesn't matter what job or title we hold. The answer to our problems comes from actualizing the human heart.
