45. With Obama, it's like you take two steps forward, then two steps back.
Two steps forward with student loan reform, then two steps back with continued military presence in Iraq, Afghanistan, and now Libya.

He's done some praiseworthy things, as represented by the Lily Ledbetter Act. But there are also some truly horrendous examples of decision-making, like the continued spying on honest Americans via warrantless wiretapping or the support for TSA security theater and passenger groping.

We get unemployment extended, but we go further into debt by giving the extremely wealthy a tax break.

It's almost like... there's no there THERE with this man. He's nice, he's congenial, but his idea of a good decision is gray... the middle between black and white. He doesn't seem to care or be disturbed by the fact that his "middle ground" is the midpoint between extremely right wing and right wing. He's weak, and he's an ineffective leader for the non-wealthy class.

Unfortunately, he's the best horse we've got, which says a lot about our options.
