Preisdent Obama is confronting extensive criticism because he has refused to take action about immigration reform until after the elections. A few months ago, he proposed extensive climate change action which resulted in Democratic candidates losing ground in their fight for reelection. Throughout his presidency, President Obama has demonstrated a lack of political knowledge which has led to extensive Republican gains in the House and Senate. The greatest political folly was pushing for health care reform before pushing for jobs and ensuring the rich did not get richer. Franklin Roosevelt began his administration in the height of Depression by creating FOUR MILLION JOBS within six months so those in despair had their self concept restored by earning money and doing something constructive. He waited two years before creating the Social Security system.
From day one of his precedency, Barack Obama has been among the most inept POLITICIANS in American history. The President of the United States is also leader of his POLITICAL party, a role Obama simply has ignored. In a democracy, the President must be a POLITICIAN in order to get laws passed. For Obama, we give him a “D” grade. Sorry Barack, it requires POLITICAL skills to pass laws you desire. It is OK to hold off on immigration reform. The important thing is to return to it AFTER THE ELECTIONS!
