Oh yes, because when you're a president, you don't need to think about anyone else or about other parties. You just snap your fingers and everything you wanted to do, is done!

Y-yeah, talking more than once about something obviously means he is a failure as a president.

He doesn't expel tallented young people, he doesn't set the costs colleges charge, he doesn't . And the fact that hard ork pays off and that we need to move forward is OBVIOUSLY a goal and not a constant evolving issue. And GOD FORBID we want our government to be smarter.

I declare this video to be 100% fail.

people dont want to here the same **** over and over again. i think you are missing the whole main point of this video. Yes, his speeches were very similar but i think that what this video is showing is that he hasn't acted upon anything he said. He says he wants to do these thing but he isn't making any motions towards starting them. All obama cares about right now is getting re-elected
User avatar #91 to #79 - thephantur (01/26/2012) [-]
It's near impossible to fix decades of problems with our country in just 4 years. Of course he wants to be re-elected.

Also, it's not him, it's congress. They move too slow.
#92 to #79 - maxkodan (01/26/2012) [-]
No dice, man. Most of the clips he talks about things he has no direct control over, and the rest either take time or are simple truths. NO president can do what he sets out to do in one term without some massive event. And 2 years? You think in 2 years the entire government is going to redesign itself?

This video shows nothing, and holds no value beside the cheap trick it uses, and the only trick it uses. "If the message is the same 1-2 years later, the speaker has done nothing."

Next you'll be lynching the middle school class presidents for not filling the water fountains with root beer and providing free cake to the school each Friday. When you can put aside your skewed and biased views and actually do some research on the topic, get back to me. Now turn off your Spongebob and go watch some CSPAN or something.

...thats not what im saying at all. and you are completely wrong everything he says, illegal immigration, expelling students, rebuilding roads, etc. are all things that if he wants to see the changes he desires than he must take into his own hands. plus what i was saying was that he hasnt even attempted to solve these problems. im not bashing him saying that he hasnt completed them in the short span, im bashing him saying that he hasn't even started fixing these problems. if he wants to solve these problems he has to get the stone rolling. he cant sit back and expect these problems to just fix themselves. i am in no way saying that he will get these problems fixed in 1 term. these problems are much greater than that.

How many letters have you written to your school boards, your congressmen, the colleges near you, expressing your disdain with the expulsion rates and the too-high entrance costs? What action have YOU taken? Because I hate to tell you, but the President doesn't have the power to tell Harvard and Yale what to do. Colleges can be accredited and recognized, but most of them are not owned by the state or federal governments. And the exceptions tend to be much cheaper than their private counterparts.

Blame Congress, anyway. they have to make a law and pass it before Obama can even look at it. If you think the President can just strut around telling everyone what to do and how to do it and when to do it, you're far to ignorant of the workings of our government to even carry on a conversation about it.
User avatar #138 to #115 - Kapoow (01/26/2012) [-]
im not arguing about any of that i never said anything about me doing my part. (apart from the expulsions part) im not saying he should tell the colleges what to do. the problem that i have is obama is constantly stating problems that we need to solve but never states what he is going to do to solve the problems. and i never said anything about obama going around telling people what to do.
#154 to #138 - maxkodan (01/26/2012) [-]
Then you're missing the point entirely. He CAN'T do anything about a lot of that stuff, so how is he supposed to tell us what he's going to do?

the vid tells me he's keeping it real
#28 - yettinarch (01/25/2012) [-]
It proves that these things are STILL issues and STILL need to be fixed. Just cause he is saying it again doesn't me he did nothing. It means he's serious about the issues and wants them to be fixed. Sometimes you gotta repeat yourself to make the dumb ones actually listen.
User avatar #43 - luckysteves (01/26/2012) [-]
He can't do anything because congress doesn't agree on anything. The party system is so ****** up that just because one party says one thing, the other party automatically disagrees. He is keeping his opinions consistent to press the issues and congress and to make them move forward. Get your **** straight and get a decent understanding of how ****** up this country's government is before you decide that he hasn't done anything. It isn't his Obama's damn fault.
#67 to #43 - arkamedies (01/26/2012) [-]
Bull **** if that pile of ******* **** wants something done he does a consecutive order for it

my anus is prepared for the **** storm of red pinkies that draws near
#155 to #67 - luckysteves (01/26/2012) [-]
Ok ******** . First, learn to spell Archimedes. Second, if he issues a consecutive order, that still must go through the other two branches. Entire reason of having a branch system of government is so that no one branch has too much power. I guess you haven't learned that in you sixth grade social studies class yet. Get back to me asshat.
User avatar #119 to #67 - MuahahaOfLore (01/26/2012) [-]
turns out we still have some sheep to educate
User avatar #45 to #43 - MuahahaOfLore (01/26/2012) [-]
you are suggesting is that he be able to make change without congress?

That called a monarchy
User avatar #55 to #45 - esmuklas (01/26/2012) [-]
No he's saying Obama is trying to do stuff but congress is just blocking every move he makes. Then he has to negotiate with retards who just do what the big businesses pay them to vote for.
User avatar #56 to #55 - MuahahaOfLore (01/26/2012) [-]
lol, does he really try to negotiate? Why does it seem that congress is blocking him?

What if Obama is passing unconstitutional laws, and trying to increase spending?
Would you try to block them?
And what if he attempts to pass these because he knows that they MUST block them?

These are all hypothetical of course and NOT AT ALL based in fact. You win this round.
User avatar #57 to #56 - esmuklas (01/26/2012) [-]
I just hope we get a president some time that isn't an extremist of either side who understands how to make the US a better place.

I hope so too
User avatar #84 to #45 - matticus (01/26/2012) [-]
Constitutional Monarchy is not all that bad. Just look at Great britfat. The last major revolt The English had was in 1688, and it was bloodless. Great britfat survived the tumultuous periods of the enlightenment, nationalism and romanticism without a domestic revolution. No other western country can make that claim.
User avatar #85 to #84 - MuahahaOfLore (01/26/2012) [-]
i hope your trolling
User avatar #87 to #85 - matticus (01/26/2012) [-]
Prove me wrong. i dare you.
User avatar #88 to #87 - MuahahaOfLore (01/26/2012) [-]
Prove wrong the argument "Constitutional Monarchy is not all that bad."?
You are trolling
We don't live in a monarchy, we didn't elect a monarch, The US constitution has been a model for many governments including the United Nations.

In this situation, i don't have to prove that monarchy's have never had good results, just that it in this case it is illegal and not better than the system the US was founded on
User avatar #90 to #88 - matticus (01/26/2012) [-]
you misunderstand me. i was not trying to convince you that we should change our republic to a constitutional monarchy, i was only trying to say that the constitutional monarchy in Great britfat, where it already exists, is working just as well as the republic here.

and you think the united nations is a form of government? The UN is a joke, with little real power. But that's a different argument.
User avatar #95 to #90 - MuahahaOfLore (01/26/2012) [-]
so would it be fair to say that some turmoil is taking place in the United States based off of a new type of government trying to be implemented?

And do you think its right? im pretty sure its treasonous
User avatar #112 to #95 - matticus (01/26/2012) [-]
you want my honest opinion?
the scar of america is racism. as much as we dont want to admit it, there is still huge deep seeded racism in this country. when obama was elected there were cries for his birth certificate, to prove he was amerifat. C'mon. Thats a ******* joke.

Also, the constitution was made to be amended. so it could be possible for a radical change of government, but i dont think anybody wants that to happen.
User avatar #113 to #112 - MuahahaOfLore (01/26/2012) [-]
I agree racism is a problem, but isn't that why he got a Nobel peace prize before doing anything?

Also, i think he didn't release the certificate to taunt birthers.

Side note America has more slavery than any other county if you count the way we run our prisons with high populations and forced labor
User avatar #116 to #113 - matticus (01/26/2012) [-]
i can totally agree with you there. 1% of our population is in prison, and 80% of prisoners are in prison for non-violent crimes. The average convict receives more federal money than the average grade school student. How can we treat our damned better than our young and elderly?

and with that i'm gonna end this. its nearly midnight here on the east coast and i must sleep. its been nice chatting with whoever you are.

goodnight

How can he do much when he has no control over his own congress? Americans have a messed up system where the head of the country cannot do anything for the country, so can you expect him to actually do much?
User avatar #128 - alucardaudron (01/26/2012) [-]
no one understands that the president can't do it by himself. because the congressmen and senators are ******* idiots and aren't letting him do anything or pass almost any bills because they want him out of office and don't like him. there putting there own personal agenda's ahead of the things needed done for america. **** our congressmen and senators. there all a bunch of fairy Lamar Smithgot ass bitches.

**** you. He's only repeating himself because these are important issues. He doesn't have the power to preform these actions if no one else is on board.

**** , he is under so much pressure, I
would never want a job as the president.
Causes to much stress. Look at Obama
in 08'(right picture), and look at him now,
in 2012looks like he aged 15 years.
All those grey hair from being under stress

#122 - TotesMahGotes (01/26/2012) [-]
You do realize that The President, on his own, can actually do very little, right? Congress, as well as state governments, not to mention the near obscene numbers of government agencies and interest groups need to work together for anything to be done. I for one am sick of listening to these people that bitch and moan that "Obama aint done **** for me, so **** him". It's not HIS responsibility alone...

Bitch because Republicans in the government are blackballing his proposals, belittling him on the news... sorry, the FOX news that (for some unknown ******* reason) so many of the people in this country use as their only news source. You want the facts, then don't just have the morons on Fox and Friends, or Bill O'Reilly spoon feed you what THEY want you to hear, get your information from different sources and form your own damned opinion.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not all that happy with what has been going on lately, but it's foolish to place all the blame on Obama. And to be honest, I'd still vote for him over any of these yoo-hoos running for the candidacy. I'm just glad Palin decided to quit before she REA-HE-HE-HE-HE-HEALLY embarrassed herself.

(Replace "religion" with "political opinions" and the picture makes a bit more sense given my comment. Also, inb4 being hypocritical because of picture combined with rant)
User avatar #133 to #122 - MuahahaOfLore (01/26/2012) [-]
yes, dont share your political views.

Includes: helping starving Africans, stopping Somalian pirates, finding osama

im just trying to say a healthy discussion is important

turns out FJ has some Obama supporters

we need to do something about that before the primaries are over
User avatar #3 - tanisrapedmygoat (01/25/2012) [-]
as a Political scientist I can tell you he's been doing a lot of these things in small ways but is trying to continue and needs help from other people. You need to do more research if you're gonna talk about politics. He's created Obama care which helps anyone under the age of 27 get health insurance and he's helping reform education to make it more affordable for college kids.

If spending 8 hours a day every day seven days a week makes one a political analyst then I may be considered such.
As you seem to support Obama, I would like to have you explain to me the reasons why and those small things that he has done tell our country.

I do agree that some facets of the healthcare bill are very intelligent. Allowing college student to stay on their parents Health Care until an older age is a good idea. But one are two good ideas does not make up for all the earmarks not having to do with Health Care, and the obvious flaws in the rest of the bill, including the payouts that take place after the first 10 years.

I know you’re aware of the 1200 companies that have already received waivers from the Health Care reform law; we won’t even get into that.

User avatar #153 to #5 - tanisrapedmygoat (01/26/2012) [-]
In no way do I disagree that there are some flaws in the bill as are in every bill. And I do support Obama. I dont believe he has been as good as everyone including myself believed but my main point was that I hate when people who are uneducated say he's done absolutely nothing. Which can actually be blamed on both sides of the aisle.
#141 - evilminion (01/26/2012) [-]
you do realize most of these things are ran by congress which has been at a standstill for years
