The Wall Street Journal calls the President The Great Divider. Would you use that term for him? Why?
I would certainly use the term, "The Great Divider" to describe President Obama. He has pit the poor against the rich and done everything he can think of to turn our nation into a one party system. He is the master of the blame game.
I can't wait until he leaves - 3 years and 10 months more.
I call him President Chickenlittle. I can see why the WSJ The Great Divider but I actually think The Great Redistributor is more accurate.
The WSJ is as one sided as most of the other papers in this country. Very few news services give a real accounting of what is going on since they cater to a certain readership instead of the whole country.
Also this phrase was coined in 2011 ago when they were rooting for Romney and Ryan, who still are now blaming the media for their loss.
Do I personally think Obama has divided the nation?
No I think he just brought to the forefront what ails us. We have a gun toting, bible waving, hawk minority, (25%), against a liberal live and let live, dove minority (25%) and a don't have a thing to say, not going to bother to vote it won’t matter quiet majority who may have more of clue than the rest. (50%) That’s our division , don’t think you can blame it on any one person.
Let me preface this by saying two things; One, I think the Republican leadership is weak, divided and getting out gunned on every turn. Two, I'm running for district in 2014 here in Arizona for this reason. I'll win and I'll move up quickly because it all begins with attitude and I've got it. Conservatives and Liberals both like my brand of politics. As I get out and talk to the people face to face, I find that we are divided on paper but not our hearts. That gives me a lot of motivation to move forward. Having said that ...
Yes, the President is following the strategy of divide and conquer. The Republican leadership is letting him get away with it, so I blame them first. Complaining about him won't fix anything. We have to team up and get to work. Common sense is a commodity that Liberals and Conservatives both have plenty of. Let's start using it.

A few publications came out with that moniker, originally, months ago. I haven’t been happy with some things Presidnet Obama has done and said recently; but then again, the GOP hasn’t exactly thrilled me, either. (I’m an Independent.) Nevertheless, the “us versus them” lines were clearly drawn the moment Obama was elected back in 2008. The GOP is deeply divided in terms of views held by the far right and those held by moderates. Everyone inside the beltway seems to be campaigning these days instead of leading. I am completely disgusted with the entire process. The “us versus them” only helps to keep people stupid. Enough is enough…it’s time for everyone to grow up.
Yep that's the term I would use. I grew up with race riots; the language used today makes the rhetoric of the 60's look church music.
No, I think Obama has made a lot of efforts to be conciliatory that have been rebuffed. So, he is playing hardball like the other side, now.
What specific things has he done to bring America together and not single out individual "groups"...specifics, please.
If you listen to his speeches he often talks about us being one nation and stronger when we help each other .He frequently pleaded with Republicans to be constrictive contributors to health care reform, but their response was cynically tactical . He
