Forums - General Discussion - What Barack Obama does on his free time instead of fixing America.

I don't get the title of this thread. I mean, why should he be fixing anything with his "free time"?

The thing is though, he's playing golf with the head of the Republican Party. Cool hypocracy there.



“When we make some new announcement and if there is no positive initial reaction from the market, I try to think of it as a good sign because that can be interpreted as people reacting to something groundbreaking. ...if the employees were always minding themselves to do whatever the market is requiring at any moment, and if they were always focusing on something we can sell right now for the short term, it would be very limiting. We are trying to think outside the box.” - Satoru Iwata - This is why corporate multinationals will never truly understand, or risk doing, what Nintendo does.

Don't slam me but he kind of reminds me of Reggie Fils-Aime; he has a light-hearted/playing around sort of nature to him. It's kind of nice! :)

Yeah, I kinda see it, too. Insofar as they're both incompetent fuckwits whom I find personally grating.

Goddamit badgenome, you always me LOL irl with stupid yet well thought out one liners.



Disconnect and self destruct, one bullet a time.

It is too bad he could not have been more successful his first term, because he is a fun president. Here he either today or yesterday singing to his crowd.

Considering there is a do nothing congress called republicons. I think we all now who has not done a f'ing thing. Name anything the republicon congress has done. What a joke.

A little civics for you, congress spends the money and has a lot more power to get the ecconomy going rather then the pres. He has put forth the jobs act, which is all good unless your a greedy person that won't pay taxes on there second million. You kidding me.

Somebody doesn't know how the office works.  NOTHING ever gets done when its a split. Things only get done when both president and congress are the same party.  If they aren't, then the other just votes the other way.  THUS nothing gets done.  Blame Obama as much as Republicans. If republicans had a plan Obama would shut it down, if Obama has a plan Republicans shut it down.  thus nothing happens.  BUT the media is insanely left wingers thus all they talk about is how republicans shut down everything and not that the same thing is happening the other way around.  Not to mention Obama only blames people since his election.  You can only blame somebody for so long.  You have been in office for four years, you have full control for 2 of them.  Time to take responsibility.

What good having control of 2 if the third can shut down anything you do.  You are right that when there is a split in power nothing gets done.  Right now the Dems have the Senate and the Rep has the house.  The Rep have been hell bent on getting Obama out of office where they have pretty much gone against anything Obama has signed on for even if they promoted it.  We have seen time and again, where if something Obama signed for will make him look good and it help American and it's people Republicans have signed against it. 

When Obama was actually able to get something through congress  was when he first became president and the Dems had the Senate and most of the house.  Once that changed and the Hose went to the Reps everything stopped because the Reps are so focused on making this a one term for Obama that they pretty much through out any concern for the country. 

If there is going to be a continued split in Congress like it is today, it will matter not who is president, nothing will get done.  If the Dems gain more power than stick with Obama, if the Reps can gain more power than pick the top Rep dog, thats the only way anything will get done.

Last but not least, I believe Obama 2nd term if he sees it will be much easier than the first.  My reason is that the Reps will have nothing to shoot for.  If that happens there will be no reason for Reps to veto things getting done because they want Obama to look bad, instead they actually can go back to trying to help the people instead of worrying about power issues.

The thread was a joke/serious thread. Who is to even say that was his free time. As a President can you really expect as much free time as he and Bush have taken during their time as President? I actually think he has done an ok job. But like I said, I thought the video was funny, but we are kind of in a bad situation.
