<<Obama couldn't get a deficit reduction plan approved when Dems owned the whole world!


He wasn't President then.

Having the majority is not the same as having control (as those with knowledge of politics know).>>


Bull.


Democrats had control of the House and Senate during Obama's first two years as President --- arguably the time when a President has the most power.

And Obama WAS succesful at getting those things he thought were important passed --- various gay issues and Obamacare.


He just didn't think deficit reduction or the economy were important enough to intrude on those things.

Bill Clinton did the same thing during his first two years as President, and lost the House and Senate after two years.


Do you guys actually BELIEVE your own propaganda and spin?
