    1. inadequate stimulus in 2009, he was told at the time it was inadequate
    2. endless help for Wall St, nothing for homeowners
    3. pushing for auterity measures at a time when the economy demands huge government investments to offset the negative growth in aggregate demand

    to name but a few

    I am a liberal.  I doubt that makes me a Dem anymore.

      1. A bigger stimulus would not pass congress, neither would a public option
      2. He has tried to help owners via HAMP, it was inadequate but don't say he didn't try
      3. What austerity measures was he pushing? That's a lie. He tried to get another stimulus but was impossible. The only time he talked about deficit was during debt ceiling and that's because of the repubs.

      I am a true liberal progressive and know the real enemies are repubs not Obama. All you are doing is helping the tea party to get elected.

        not to provide his supporters with excuses for his failure to do so, his failure to even try.  He more than anyone undermined the public option and he purposefully shot low with the stimulus.

        HAMP was/is a disgrace.

        Ever hear of the Simpson Bowles joke of a commission, the super committee?  He talks about deficits and debt reduction all the time, how government must do what US families around the dinner table are struggling to do and such nonsense. Right out of the GOP playbook.

        He didn;t try to get another stimulus, he's been making campaign season speeches in a weak attempt at reconciling with his former base.
