Is Obama a One Term President?
I had set a poll with that question on my website where 45% responded to the question with yes, only 10% said no, and 30% were not sure. Though it was a small poll, to my belief it reflects the current sentiment among the progressives fairly well.
Indeed, I have written many articles with similar thoughts on Technorati, on the disenchantment of the American progressives and Obama's deliberate betrayal of them. Now here is my prediction, and take it for whatever it is worth—Obama will win a 2nd term in 2012.
When I set up the poll, I was convinced that Barrack Obama would be a one-term President. That was before the 2010 election. It did not take long in the new Congress, for John Boehner et al to demonstrate that we accord more credits to the Republicans than what is due them. No sooner did they came in power then they resorted to childish maneuvers which were so symbolic to them, yet in reality were nothing more than cheap ploys to cater to their base, and their actions resulted in wastage of public money, which they so vehemently oppose in principle.
Let no one forget—the duty of the Congress is to make Law, the 112th Congress, in their infinite wisdom, began their act reading from the Constitution. Their reading nonetheless soon proved that they have no respect for the Constitution, as they only read it selectively and omitted the parts they were against. I am not against the lawmakers reading of the Constitution, rather, I think it is something that each of them must do; nevertheless, I also believe that they should do that in their private time.
If that caricature of GOP house members was not enough to piss off the sane Americans, their next priority of repealing the Health Care Law shall be. In their great desire to carry water for the corporate bosses, they declared their hatred against ordinary American people by avowing all-out-war against the Health Care Reform that they jealously call Obama-Care. Little do they understand that if people are against Obama-Care it is because of what the reform did not do rather than what it did. The popular complaint is that the law did not go far enough to serve the interest of the ordinary Americans, and curtail power of the health insurance companies.Continued on the next page
