President Obama's Democratic Party had majority control of Congress during his first two years in office. He could have reformed immigration laws, if he cared, raised taxes on the wealthy, if he wanted to, or focused on helping the economy, if he knew how. These are all promises of a potential second term. All he has done for four years is campaign. Flying around the world and country giving divisive speeches to his fan base on the taxpayers' dime. This is not leadership. His economic plan going forward is to invest, that is spend money we don't have, in infrastructure, education and green jobs training. Isn't that what the $850 billion stimulus was for? Where did that money go? In the pockets of the special interest groups and others who helped get him elected. Now he wants to do it again?
