sid mack 5pts Mitch Mc Connell, the Republican leader of the senate has said several times " out objective is to make him (Obama) fail", imagine that, not to help the country succeed but to make him fail. Anyone who is paying attention knows that Obama has received more opposition votes than any president in history. If he says up they say down even if his proposals benefit their constituents. When to the stimulus passed Obama was president and there was a Democratic congress. the governor of South Carolina and most of the other republican governor refused to accept federal money to extend unemployment insurance. Just this week the Transportation Department recovered 230 million dollars from Republican states that was allocated to repair their bridges. Shame, these republican governors would rather risk the live of their people and their economies rather than accept money from the Obama administration. if you drive over abridge then Google " The Bridge Report." You will be shocked. Our entire infrastructure, sewers, water pipes, electric grid, dams, highways and bridges are old, outdated and need repair or replacement. The last president to try and budget money for the infrastructure was Carter. Obama has started with stimulus money and budgets since then. Those who have lost faith in Obama and those who never supported him in the first place are being maneuvered by the Republican machine who pay people to call radio stations and make negative comments about Obama. They pay people too write letters newspapers and even to make posts if forums like this one. The Koch Brothers finance American for Prosperity and other Republican organizations. The opening recruit and advise members to infiltrate and divide Obama supporters. I should know, I am a member.
