It's sad his presidency brought out so much racisim in the country. The GOP
should be ashamed for how they treated him from the beginning. Instead of
working with him they worked against him from day one. Our way or no way was
their creed. I hope the democrats don't try the same thing. Compromise is needed
no matter which party is in power.
I was part of the GOP and we beg to disagree. let us not forget the Democrats had both houses of congress until 2012. That ,says a lot about his presidency.
All presidents have their faults. They are only human after all.
I shouldn't paint the GOP as a whole, as there are people in congress who work
for the common man, and not only the rich. But when they are threatened with
the party running people against them if they don't vote the right way it's wrong.
I believe the GOP took over the house in the 2010 mid term election. At that time
they were running against the ACA, and misrepresenting it to say the least. A friend
of mine heard the ACA was going to create death panels. To say if one was too old
they should die rather than get care. I don't know if the GOP was saying this or
someone else. Obama did say people wouldn't loose their insurance which was
wrong. He should have stood up for it along with it's possible faults.
If an idea is good, threats are never needed to work with other people of good
conscious The GOP has shifted to the right over the last 30 years, and this paints
the democrats more to the left. The ACA was a republican idea first proposed
over thirty years ago. When Obama worked to get it passed they made it look
like it was his idea alone.
I hope Trump turns out to be a good president, but he isn't showing much of it
yet worrying over crowd size and the popular vote he lost.
