As stated at Der Spiegel, President Barack Obama was one of the “Biggest Losers” of 2010. Barack Obama came to power promising a new era of bipartisan cooperation but he turned out to be one of the most partisan Presidents ever, which a Democrat run Congress with Pelosi and Reid that passed legislation and rammed it down the throats of Americans. Their actions enabled the 111th Congress to be deemed one of the worst ever. The end result was a GOP take over and the birth of the Tea Party. Barack Obama has gone from “The One” to what appears to be a one term president, aka a One Term “One”der. 2012 is right around the corner, will Obama be apart of it?
SPIEGEL’s Washington correspondent Marc Hujer writes on SPIEGEL ONLINE:
“Barack Obama was the biggest loser of 2010. He allowed the angry Tea Party movement to grow powerful, he did not pass any decent laws despite his majority in Congress and he was aloof, elitist and indecisive. He had to accept a formidable, yet entirely understandable, defeat in the midterm elections as a result. No one expected much from Obama, at least not during the rest of this year.”
“Now, just days before Christmas, Congress has ratified the New START disarmament treaty with Russia. … Will Obama build on this victory? Is it Obama’s breakthrough as a president? Will it mark his comeback as a reformer? … Is a new era of cooperation beginning?”
My how the Obamamessiah has fallen.
