19. How Is This Obama's Fault???
Can someone explain to me what they expected Obama to do to force the house Dems to vote the way he wanted?
What power does he wield over them? He has a title, but little actual authority.


Quit blaming someone else and then saying you are going to stop participating!!!
That is how things got this bad in the first place!!!
