Thing is, voting for Obama would be a no-brainer for me, if I were an american citizen: There is simply no alternative on the right side who arent going to make things worse, or just keep NOT doing the stuff Obama isnt getting done quick enough.
Which, IMO, means the core problem lies in the 2-party structure, but you guys are stuck with that out of your own fault, so tough luck.
Over the past 2 years, it has gotten painfully obvious that the more work, effort and care anyone puts into the system, the more ridicule, sabotage and just plain cockblocking they ll have to endure, just because their opponents can.
If you dont do much and let the system teter close to the brink of disaster, nobody is going to fuck up the game even more for fear of everything breaking down... which neither side of the fence wants to happen. But for every move pulling America together in some way, you create leeway for someone else to fuck up even more, which they seem to promptly make use of.
There seems to be virtually no genuine interest by the republican party in washington that makes it to the headlines, nor the entire right-wing pundits, to let the Obama administration do ANYTHING without fighting tooth and nail for it, out of sheer principle.
Unfortunately, I suppose it wouldnt look a lot different the other way around now, because it would be very easy to just claim "they started it first!" and do the same shit to a republican president in 2 years.
As long as there is no intention of doing anything but scoring points, and preventing the enemy team from doing so in your government, you are fucked.
