    Inherited the strong economy but earned his low approval rating.

    Oh, please - fuck your noise. There's nothing political at all about saying that the stock market isn't the economy, because it isn't. And yes, I am telling you that a company showing a good profit is not a reflection of a good company. For example, a company could have increased it's market share and profitability by firing employees, or selling off certain assets. But that certainly doesn't argue that a company is well run. And while you can say that I'm not an intelligent investor, the facts speak for themselves. I have a net worth north of $10 million due to investments. Can you say the same?

    Good! Then you won't mind admitting that Obama had a healthy economy. After all, unemployment was way down, the stock market was way up, and the GDP was growing. Or does that only count when a Republican is in office?

    The stock market was certainly the economy when The Lightworker was at the helm.

    and yet, he still has not signed a single major piece of legislation into law.

    When does he start to keep those campaign promises, and passing the legislation he says is necessary?

    His behavior as you call it , is just a rejection of politics as it was in Washington. He was elected because of the corruption in politics and we thought he would do something about it. He is living up to his promises.

    Then when the Senate plan was almost as bad as the House's, he called it wonderful.

    He's all over the place.



    Repealing Obamacare isn't keeping a promise if what it's replaced with hurts people. He said he wouldn't do that. Specifically he said he wouldn't touch Medicaid (as one example of a promise he'd be violating by signing what Congress has proposed).

    Whatever promises he's keeping, it's in name only. He's violating the substance of his promises.


    If he needs to convince people he's right about healthcare, then yeah, he's gonna stay frustrated. Which is going to lead to more embarrassing tweets. Which is going to lead to lower poll numbers. As is already happening.

    And he cares about that. He cares big time. Bragged that one time that Rasmussen had him at 50% approval, as if that was something to brag about. Now Rasmussen has him at less than 40%. You bet he cares.
    When did the notion that government have to provide healthcare for everyone come into play?
