When Obama first came into office a group of Republicans came to him with a list of issues that could be used for the upcoming stimulous package. He refused them all claiming that elections had reprecussions and thus he would not even invite their participation (anyone else remember this in the health care debate?). The bottomline is that Obama created his own enemies, decided to do it on his own - and now, with disastorous results has to own it all too. Arrogance.
With every campaign stop the President, and his idiot cronies, try to blame the Republicans for his problems. But with a majority in both houses Obama could pass anything he wanted - and he did. He passed a health care program (jammed down our throat) that will eventually help no one (in fact my own corporate plan has gone up and one plan option has been eliminated).
Eventually as his policies waned even his own Democratic legislature would not vote for silly one-stop band-aid programs (his putrid small business package) that won't do anything. The man is to blame for his own inner view and unfortunate narcissim. This Tuesday will show the world how arrogant the rest of the country feels he is as well.
