Democrats truly had the world in their hands in 2008 and could have truly made good on righting the wrongs of King George the second, but instead, they sat back and got absolutely nothing done. In the past 4 1/4 years under President Obama, they have decided to give up on compromising with the GOP (who themselves are guilty of as well), and have planted the mentality into the citizens of America that its ok to do nothing with your lives,
and to make piss-poor decisions as the good ol federal government will make it all ok.
Just as conservatives labeled anyone who opposed KGII during the Iraq war as a traitor, democrats are doing the exact same thing by calling anyone who isnt on board with the president as being racist, backwards, or intolerant. The democrats along with Obama show absolutely NO leadership abilities and expect the status quo is simply good enough. They fail to engage foreign leaders the way Bill Clinton masterly did. They fail to teach about accepting responsibility for ones poor choices and keep pushing the entitlement message to everyone as a form of getting more votes next election cycle.
On the environment, instead of seeking realistic pro-enviromental actions, they go well beyond off the deep end into the flavor of the month ideas that are wasteful in resources, instead of taking a cautious and disciplined approach.
Today, the democrats seem more lost as we still havent seen a moment of great leadership from Obama that would inspire and reassure the American public that he "gets it" and can restore faith in America, a reason why so many people are negative about the USA, and other countries just laugh at his smugness and arrogance and show us no respect. And ramming through a massive health care law without simplifying it or having time for everyone to review, showed total disregard for proper procedure of getting laws passed.
