P.O. is in many ways a absentee president. Instead of proposing bills, he allowed Harry Reid & Pelosi to write them, hence the horrible "Obamacare" bill. Most presidents give clear directions on what they want but not PO.
As a IL Senator, he voted present 129 times. Otherwise he would have had to take a position.
He was elected to the US Senate, only after the best Republican was forced out of the race because his sealed divorce records were opened by a friendly Democrat judge,
As a President, he has golfed 60 times after saying he was focusing like a laser on jobs. Add the fundraising trips paid for by us the US taxpayers and his wife's trips at our expense, maybe he could do some work for his pay!
Plus he is such a "great" orator:
"We're not trying to push financial reform because we begrudge success that's fairly earned. I mean, I do think at a certain point you've made enough money. But, you know, part of the American way is, you know, you can just keep on making it if you're providing a good product or providing good service. We don’t want people to stop, ah, fulfilling the core responsibilities of the financial system to help grow our economy." —on Wall Street reform, Quincy, Ill., April 29, 2010
"The Middle East is obviously an issue that has plagued the region for centuries." --Tampa, Fla., Jan. 28, 2010
"UPS and FedEx are doing just fine, right? It's the Post Office that's always having problems." –attempting to make the case for government-run healthcare, while simultaneously undercutting his own argument, Portsmouth, N.H., Aug. 11, 2009
"I think when you spread the wealth around, it's good for everybody." -- defending his tax plan to Joe the Plumber, who argued that Obama's policy hurts small-business owners like himself, Toledo, Ohio, Oct. 12, 2008
"I've now been in 57 states -- I think one left to go." --at a campaign event in Beaverton, Oregon
"It's not surprising, then, they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations." --explaining his troubles winning over some working-class voters
Let's try to elect a real President this time!
