Evaluating what Pres. Obama has and has not done over the past 2+ years, if you had it to do over again, would you still have voted for him (if you did?) Do you wish you had? I mean this primarily in the sense of him vs other Democratic nominees, as opposed to Dem vs GOP (the answers there are probably fairly predictable for the users here, I'd think...). Personally, I would rather have had Hilary get the nod for the job, and felt the same way during the primaries. When making this decision, consider the following pros/cons: Guantanamo--still open Iraq/Afghanistan--progress? enough? Finances--the deficit has gone nowhere but up... DADT--done! PATRIOT act--extended Government transparency--worse by many measures (consider higher FOIA request rejection percentages, etc) Healthcare law--good? bad? better than nothing? (feel free to add to the list etc...) Personally, I'm massively disappointed in the lack of transparency, extension of wiretapping/PATRIOT nonsense, increase in deficit spending, the fact that Guantanamo is still open, and that we're not out of at least one of Iraq/Afghanistan yet. I don't think the healthcare bill is even close to what it should have been--compelling purchase of services from private healthcare firms doesn't click for me. Gotta go all-in on the single-payer idea...or not at all. But what we got instead doesn't help. To his credit, I'm thrilled that DADT is history, and that DOMA is headed the same way. To be fair, without a true super-majority in both houses, it would be absurd to place all blame/credit on the president. That said, my perspective is that the Dems had enough power to pull off pretty much whatever they wanted over the past couple years--and have shockingly little good to show for it. Wrapping things up: I wish we'd gotten Hilary instead. (If McCain had not picked a total buffoon as a running mate/had he resembled his 2000-era image, I'd have preferred him...but that's another story) Thoughts?
