54. I'm surprised so many people are so narrowed.
So Kucinich who voted countlessly against many things that might have been beneficial don't count. Or maybe Feingold who wanted to go after Obama's Czars with a few Repubs doesn't count either. The point being that the Repubs tend to be united no matter what. The left not so much.

Further more, many people were putting a lot of pressure on Obama, which is understandable and needed, however what I noticed was that the pressure was solely on him. Obama failed on this, Obama failed on that. No one seemed too focus on the Congress.

I saw one thread that was fantastic on tryng to get more liberals in Congress and unseating other Dems. Where is that thread---disappeared basically and it had a list of people. That's what we should be looking at. Congress is fucking up our president. Congress is the one that had this Admin at a disadvantage for a year because it held up all of his officers. I mean if people not realizing that Obama is not a Dictator who can wave a wand and make things happen by himself...

I didn't see much on that end and for those who did do it, I didn't see us pulling the local media. Who gives a fuck abot CNN or MSNBC we need the local media and definitely pushing the right people all over the nation.

If Congress really had a lot of political pressure from the left as they claim to get from teabaggers and I mean serious pressure on a regular basis they woudln't work to undermine the President as so many has. Even Obama has spoken out about how Repubs wanted to pass a bill, created and signed by 7 of them and once he agreed with them, they voted no.

So when you take that into context you have a President who is facing a concerted effort to make him look bad and further more, we have people who are set out to create unrest between his base and himself.
