Reader Submission: Obama Tried Real Hard

 From Walkingdead:

Obama has tried real hard to be bipartisan, and other great jokes.

In a recent interview our lord and savior Barack (don't call me Hussein) Obama stated that he's tried really hard to be bipartisan. I think we can all agree with that, and by agree I mean not, and by that I mean anything he ever said. So in the interest of bipartisanship, I've decided to do a top five list of other things he's "tried really hard" to do, and also with how successful he's been:

    #5  To keep unemployment under 12% -and unmitigated success. Its currently at 8.2%

    #4  To play less than 200 rounds of golf per term. - At last count (june 17th) he's only at 100.  So once again, a huge success.

    #3  To not raise more than 30 taxes on the middle class and poor. -  I hate to say it, but obamacare only raised  21 new taxes. So he's got 9 more to go. This guy is bangin'!

    #2  To beat George W. Bush's vacation record. -  Well here we are on his first failure. So far Bush has him by about 100 days. However, it is fair to note that no one has done the research for how many of those Bush days were working vacations. So he may have him there. Partial credit for Obama.

    #1 To demonize rich people and allow race to become a factor in just about every policy he's ever  put forth by not trying to fan the flames when he's had the chance. - I don't know if this is something he's tried to do, but he's doing the S**T out of it so, we should give him props for it.

So there you have it.  5 things Obama has tried really really hard to do, and he's done most of them. I know that his most bipartisan effort to date was his health care effort, and it should be counted considering it is universally hated by both the left and the right. No really, look at the polls. Everyone hates this thing. Sure there are individual portions of the bill that are popular, but so are parts of the patriot act. And we all know that the terrorists at Git-MO don't hate their regular soccer matches, and plasma tv's. So you know, I'm just sayin'...

So next time you get down on Obama for the unemployment rate, or the expansion of government, or the declining dollar, or the high gas prices, or the continuing war mongering that he campaigned against, or the lack of terrorist trials, or the bowing to foreign dignitaries, or the... well you get the point. Just remember, he's "trying really hard" you guys! GOD, GIVE HIM A BREAK!
