22. Don't blame the voters who didn't show up.
It's the job of a politician to get the voters out to the polls.

The voters don't have a duty to vote for a politician who doesn't motivate them to vote for him.

You are blaming the voters for what the president did wrong.

He should have insisted that his health insurance reform bill be passed more quickly. He should have counted his votes, had a more fiscally sound proposal and then finally insisted that the bill be ready for implementation immediately after being passed.

Why is there such a long delay between passage of the bill and implementation of the most important of its provisions?

Obama is a bad politician. His admirers do not want to admit it but that is the problem here.

And he has allowed Homeland Security to spend far too much money on unnecessary gadgets and unneeded staff. It's a downright boondoggle at this point -- full employment for right wing paranoids.
