In this video, a Democrat congresswoman in New York gets her azz handed to her by her constituents on the issue of the Obamacare mandate. Interestingly, she had absolutely no response except to apologize for starting the town hall meeting late.
For a candidate who promised voters he would be "post partisan" and would bring both sides of the aisle in Congress together, Obama has been hugely disappointing. In fact, he has been the most partisan and divisive president in modern memory. Other than in the sixties, I have never seen people so angry and riled up, myself included.
The next election, we as voters had better do more than allow ourselves to be beguiled by slick campaign rhetoric, and instead insist that anyone asking for our votes have a proven record of adherence to the constitution and belief in American culture. Nothing else at this point in time will be acceptable.
