Obama’s failure has been noble, but House’s has not Recently the approval ratings for both President Obama and Congress have fallen to all-time lows. It is important to examine the issues which precipitated these historic declines. In the case of the president, the ratings have fallen largely because of the disastrous rollout of the Affordable Care Act and the president’s failure to make good on his promise that “if you like your health insurance, you ...

Hey Don, a fantasy does not make a fact. Obstructionist? You think just because a socialist took the WH that members of the opposition party should then role over and let him obfuscate and obliterate the Constitution? Should they allow the total destruction of America simply because you worship Obama? You guys tore into Bush day in and day out to get his poll numbers down. You berated and belittled both the man and the office with unrelenting attacks. Contrast that with the cover you offer this President through every scandal. Scandals you would have rightly used to impeach a Republican. No, Obamas polls are down because of all of the scandals and despite the cover offered by the MSM not just the continuing ineptness he's shown with the ACA rollout. You haven't had Bush to bash so Congress has been used as a replacement. Add the fact that most Conservatives oppose the establishment Republicans who are Democrat lite, the idiot Reid who will not allow the Republican Congress to pass anything and you have the reason for their low ratings. Spend less time trying to be a good Democrat and more time being an eyes wide open American.

Ottavio, I made the following pledges as well:

1: Stop raising our children under the very liberal philosophy that started the downward spiral of respect for teachers and authority we used to live under.

2: Enforce the laws already on the books against those illegally using guns and not pass more laws that hurt everyone but those that ignore them.

3: Teach what the Constitution says not what you want it to say. You didn't create this country and if you don't like it leave.

4: Read all the information on gun violence, compare that to other forms of violence and actually accept the statistical facts uncovered.

5: Lastly, I pledge to not dump more wasted dollars into an education system designed to pay teachers protected by tenure to indoctrinate our children in liberalism.

Don, I can't wait to read the comments that your assinine letter will generate. Obama will go down in history as the WORST President ever. The best thing he could do would be to resign, but I fear it's much too late for our country. He had absolutely no qualifications to be President, yet the voters elected him TWICE! That certainly doesn't say much about our God-given intelligence, does it? How can you think that a government that is 17 trillion dollars in debt and can't manage it's own finances can possibly manage healthcare, ie, the non-Affordable Care Act? Take off the blinders, or are you happy to be one of the sheep being led to slaughter?

Don Steiner. Obviously you were too busy staring at a picture of Obama to see Paul Ryan on every news Station with his budget bill. You elected a community organizer with no experience as president twice. The man who said that he does not know admitted terrorist William Ayers but Ayers has come out twice saying he was the actual author of Obamas book " Sins of my father". That's the problem with liberals, you just don't have a clue. You are the cause of the decline of the greatest country on earth since the late 60s and you continue to blame everyone else. I was raised to take responsibility for my actions obviously you were raised to blame others for your actions. Liberalism, another name for cowards.

Mr Lo Piccolo
1. I will teach my children to be productive private sector workers, therefore contributing to society rather than being a drain on it.
2. In case you missed it, the cowards in Albany passed the most regressive anti freedom gun legislation in the nation this year.
3. Please explain why the rest of us should pay for the incompetence and corruption that has caused the fiscal mess in the cities
4. I will make generous donation to the NRA in your name

Wow, the hot air from the "Right" in here would be welcome if it didn't come with such a foul odor. There's so much vitriol I won't even attempt to rebut it all, but doesn't the hate and anger get tiring after a while? It sure does for us.

Right, and thanks for reminding us there still are no funny right wing comedians.
.
To the letter writer's original thesis that got you lots' knickers all knotted up:
While you can make a case against the Obama administration's handling of drones and privacy, and I and most of the Left certainly has if you paid attention, the Obama administration has owned up to failures with it's attempt to bolster and improve the overall health of the American population. That by any measure, is a noble cause. To argue that it's not is sociopathic. Just as indifference to gun safety is.
.
On the other hand:
The House Angry White Man's Party votes 47 times on something they don't like, knowing full well each and every time that success is impossible.
89% of the Angry White Man's Party are...white, and confidently proclaim they're going to 'sweep the White House in 2016!' even as their demographic continues to shrivel like their....20th century ideas about Socialism.
.
Who are the loons? Who has the more noble cause?

ChuckD, Thanks. LMAO, Typically a sociopath is defined as someone who has a disregard for the rights of others or behaves in a violent or dangerous way toward others with little or no guilt. Sounds a lot like you libs when you don't get your way. Your sycophantic idols on MSNBC lead the way along with your SEIU thugs, your Black Panther party members, your occupy wall street criminals. You want to define sycophant as a condition of angst exhibited by those that oppose you politically. Who are the loons? Democrats. Who has the more noble cause? I can only assume the cause is the preservation of America and not the establishment of socialism on American soil, so Id have to go with Conservatives. The only people left in America who truly. love it. You sociopaths think if you continue your vile attacks on black conservatives you might get that number above 89%, but I think they're finally starting to see liberals for the phony's they are.

ChuckD. Obama is fixing Obamacare? Why is it right in your mind to destroy the lives of some people in order to help other people? What happened to taking responsibility for your life, family and future? Yes some people need help and nobody helps people in need more than conservatives. The stories of thousands of people losing healthcare is only begun. I now have to pay $6,500 on top of my $7,000 a year premiums. Why? Do you really think this is right, if so you must be getting your health insurance paid for by somebody else. Liberalism, just another word for gimme yours.
