Andrea Comargo (CQ) concentrates as 11th grade students at Francisco Bravo Senior Higher Healthcare Magnet College take a practice test for the new state standardized tests on February 19. Every little thing that President Obama has carried out given that he took office has been to try and fulfill the promises he produced to bring about substantive alter that we can think in. And this has sparked a vilification campaign like none that I have witnessed in my lifetime. At 1 point, death threats against President Obama have been operating at record levels, averaging thirty a day.
Hence to blame President Obama for higher unemployment is ridiculous, and to criticize him for bailing out the banks at the exact same time, when failure to do so would have brought on a planet wide financial collapse, is well….just plain silly! And all those now yapping about how the President bailed out the bankers – which was actually accomplished by Bush but Obama would have been forced to do it too – although not addressing black poverty as an alternative, would be singing a different tune.
The best factor President Obama has carried out from a political perspective – which is to say choices that would aid him and other Democrats get elected and then get his legislative agenda passed by way of each houses of Congress – was to spend the black leftist and nationalist factions no mind! The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform andConsumer Protection Act signed into law by President Obama is the strictest legislation regulating Wall Street in American history.
Plus the banks would nevertheless be generating millions off unnecessary charges from student loans, If the Republicans had been in workplace the final four years, with their aversion to government spending, investment in the scientific community would be a trickle of what it was under President Obama. However listening to the President’s harshest critics you would not know that any of these achievements took location some of historic proportions, especially the Lilly Ledbetter Act, Inexpensive Care Act, the Economic Recovery Act, and the Dodd -Frank Wall Street Reform and Customer Protection Act.
The truth is that his bad political judgment is clouded by a gargantuan ego, pompous pretentions to piety, plus a tendency toward wishful thinking all of which renders him irrelevant in the search for powerful policy options to effectively deal with the mind boggling problems that confront President Obama. Alas, it is properly known that the leaders of the Grand Obstructionist Party, in and out of office, pledged to oppose any policy President Obama proposed.
