Seriously, resorting to the race card?! This clearly shows you have no intellectual argument. How about the president actually works with republicans rather than throw a fit, blame them non stop and and quit throwing them under the bus. None if the clowns in Washington will work with the other side. Quit acting like Obama does.
They don't like his policies, but it must be his race it just MUST be! man some people are just salivating at that thought sometimes to keep something great you have to be a hard @$$, give an inch take a mile

Oh stop it with the race card already. It's getting old. Some of us see him for what he is. Its got nothing to do with RACE! They prob feel he's a lousy president destroying this country. His sequester was an attempt at forcing them to agree, by hurting the people. And it is! He's the president, it's HIS fault!
Lets take the problem of Gun Control as an example. The president could not get his own party behind him; too many Democrats left and he could not get enough Republicans to even get a majority, and certainly not enough to avoid a filibuster. But yes, it would have been dead in the House. The problem the president has isn't his race, it's that he has little to negotiate with. Often, presidents offer pork, or positions, or perquisites to cajole votes; he also punishes with they bully pulpit. But when his favorables go under 50% (as they currently are), his bully pulpit isn't going to get any traction; he has no money for pork, and the positions he can offer are filled. Additionally, he's saddled with the increasingly train-wrecked Obamacare, and this will keep his favorables low. His party isn't as popular as they think, as it lost the independents in the last election. I suspect the next election will determine the course of his presidency, which is why he is going all out to win back the House and hold the Senate. Obamacare will likely be his millstone.
Dem's and Repus are typically at each others throats. If EVERYBODY agreed EVERY time about EVERY thing, there would be nothing for the next guy to do, special interests would get thrown out, the wealthy wouldn't get taxed, at all, and the middle class would pay for everything and the poor would live off of the government. It's like a 'maybe, what if we missed something?', very complicated, millions and millions of people, trillions of dollars at stake, as well as working within a framework, the Constitution.
