BTW, those polls also include people who are unhappy with him because he isn't liberal enough. I'm pointing this out to you, because I am pretty sure that fact was lost on you.
    Agreed. While everyone has a right to an opinion, when they attempt to state facts, such as claiming Obama has pissed off 60 percent of the population, then it is incumbent upon the person asserting the fact to prove it.

    If that is just your opinion, then please man-up and say so. If you have proof, please provide it.

    I think the obligatory reply is:

    He's just trying to set himself apart from George W. Bush who pissed on 60% of the population.

    Are you basing this assertion on this fact:

    Wikipedia--The White, not-Hispanic or Latino population comprises 66% of the nation's total.[5]

    You were close. Just 6% off.

    o Annual student loan payment capped at 10% of income
    o Saves an estimated $61 billion over 10 years

    Health Care

    * Children’s health insurance bill[2]
    o CBO said bill will allow states to cover more than four million uninsured children by 2013, in addition to seven million already covered

    * Tribal Law and Order Act
    o Provide additional means to reduce high rates of violent crime, including rape & sexual assualt within Native American reservations

    If more Conservatives are elected then yes. Simply killing Obamacare will reduce the size of government.

    Keep dreaming. Obamacare isn't going anywhere. And neither is the country with the GOP in control of the House. Don't expect to see such an impressive list of accomplishments from them.
