Sometimes when I want to get some cheap entertainment I check out the FBO of Obama Support "democraticunderground.com".......I think they are starting to implode...

"This failure should fall on the shoulders of Harry Reid and President Obama. Harry Reid's failure to fix the 60 vote threshold and fillibuster rules have once again come home to roost. Reid's weak leadership in the senate and his viewing of the senate rules as sacrosanct have reaped nothing but democratic failures.

As for Obama, his severe lack of political skills have provided failure once again. President Obama has zero abilities when it comes to political tactics or strategy. His laziness is one of his main weaknesses. He has never taken the time to build relationships with individual lawmakers on both sides. Doing this takes time and he refuses to make the necessary time to learn how the whole process works. For example, the moment the Newtown massacre happened he immediately made a huge mistake. Instead of taking advantage of the situation and never letting a crisis got o waste what did Obama do? He asked for a study to be conducted! He appointed Biden to go on some sort of fact finding mission about gun violence. This tremendous act of incompetence gave the NRA and Republicans much needed time to gather their forces and come up with a counter attack that ended today with a victory. Instead of learning from President Johnson, on how to be a leader who can pass legislation, how to develop relationships with reps/senators, and how to be a successful domestic president he has learned nothing from past presidents and he has learned nothing from his 1st 4 yrs in office.

If Obama would of taken advantage of public outcry, all the media attention he could of rushed a bill through Congress and won the day! Just like 9/11, did Bush waste time, no he took advantage of the high emotions and rushed a bill through (which turned out to be an awful bill with many flaws)Congress. Even though the bill sucked, the point is he got it passed because he took advantage of the situation at the time. Obama just does not get it, he is lost when it comes to political strategy. He is always outflanked, out maneuvered, out negotiated, and out thought by his opponents and today is just another example of it.
