The last two liberal presidents who have pursued liberal policies for their entire first term, Jimmy Carter and Barrack Hussein Obama, have been dismal failures. Bill Clinton was not a failure precisely because, after trying the liberal route his first two years and then getting his party soundly trounced in his first mid-term election, he saw the light and remade himself by pursuing conservative policies on the sage advice of his conservative adviser, Dick Morris.
President Obama, on the other hand, has not tried to remake himself after getting his party trounced in the mid-term elections. Maybe he is just an experiment to see if the left can get by with their 'remaking of America' agenda while the public is shielded from the true impact by a complicit press. After all, they got him elected to the highest office in the land without a voting record after two years in the Senate; without a verifiable academic record; without any proper vetting by the media; without anything on his resume but sweet rhetoric. And most of that rhetoric, such as promising to have 'the most transparent administration ever' has been shown to be as much about nothing as everything else on his resume.
Obama is not just a do-nothing president, he is the nothing president. He has done nothing to get there, nothing good while he's there (not one single budget in 3 1/2 years!), and hopefully won't be around to do nothing more after his first term. The only problem is, his nothing has caused more harm than good, debt and unemployment are staggeringly high and he has done nothing to alleviate it.
Liberals must be holding their collective breath hoping the conservative backlash from the mid-terms won't last through the upcoming presidential primaries. Let's hope that, for the sake of this country, history repeats itself and he just becomes a bitter ex-president like Jimmy Carter.
