He was hammered true, but it was more of a DC thing. I don't recall it being so wide spread through out the country. I could be wrong, which is why I raised the question~

Remember when Bush was leaving Washington and the crowd was singing the na na na na goodbye song?

Once again it was a media and DC thing. Both were slammed but once again I do not recall anything this widespread~

Well let's face it, there was fraud in some districts where more votes were cast than registered voter.

Well, you do know that all revenue bills originate in the House under our Constitution right?
That could have a lot to do with that, if'n you want to believe there was a surplus of sorts.
The least you can say about Clinton, is that he had experience working with a more conservative legislature. So he was able to deal with his Republican Congress. Obama has no such experience and has never been an executive, which is frankly a leadership position.

Another reason, why I prefer a divided govt. Unfortunately Presidents get all the credit.

He'd face the same criticism if he were pumpkin orange with chartreuse spots and you need a new act.

Yes. Nearly every president ever gets lampooned by the side that doesn't like them. This is nothing new, read a history book.

Here we go again--and without a shred of evidence (or shame), she keeps on with this.

How many presidents have you seen in your adult life? 5? 6? Get some perspective dude.

It's getting worse because the divide is getting worse. Neither side reaches out to the other and stances on issues are simply determined by completely opposing the other viewpoint. This country is in dire need of something to unite over, but the politicians actively work to divide the country.

It's the peoples fault. They vote for the hard liner. If they don't vote hard line, they get primaried and never heard from again.

Until both sides vote for moderates and compromise is no longer a firable offense......... it will stay the same.
