It's amazing how many liberals want a dictator
Advertisements [?]
In a more autocratic country a single person could quickly deliver health care, completely change our energy economy and do everything else you think Obama should have done a week after entering office. But we don't live in a dictatorship, and I don't want anyone to have that kind of power.

Obama said in every speech that change will come from the people, not handed to us on a silver platter. Can we accept that Obama doesn't have the power to make unilateral decisions and instead put more pressure on the Senate? The Senate is the problem. I guess whining is easier than doing something productive.
