You know fucking what? I think Obama is one of the best presidents we’ve had in a long time.
He’s taken a stance on marriage equality, ATTEMPTED to fix our clusterfuck of a healthcare system, pushed for gender equality, etc.
So when I hear people say he should be impeached, or he’s the “worst president America’s had”, I am truly floored.
We have one of the most dysfunctional Congresses in the history of the country. Fact. And if you knew anything about the political system, you’d know how hard it is to get ANYTHING passed with such a partisan-centered Congress.
Obama is in no way Superman. But people are quick to nail him because it’s easier to crucify one man than it is an entire congressional body. Most of our age group doesn’t have the foggiest notion who their senators OR representatives are, but everyone knows who the president is. If you don’t think that has a lot to do with why Obama’s approval rating is as low as it is, you have some learning to do.
