Because that's worked out so well for the US...
Yep, it did, actually. He inherited a horrible economic downturn/depression, and since he took office, things have been getting better - albeit slowly.
He introduced sweeping healthcare reform.
He supports gay marriage.
He got rid of DADT...
The list goes on. Progress..Not regression, which is what fundamental conservatives want.
You'd be in the minority if you believe that the economic rebound is anything but dismal. The economy was forecast to be flying - even the Obama Administration thought it would be - the only problem is that they spent their money on things that didn't work including projects conveniently pushed by their financial backers.
Yes, we're further on the gay rights issues. But again, as I've noted repeatedly you suffer gay or straight from bad economic times - unless of course you work for the government.
And as for the "sweeping healthcare reform" the one that's despised by a majority of the US? Well count that in the plus column if you want, but by doing so, and accepting how horribly written it was for the benefit of lobbyists in the insurance industry and for certain other major corporations, you're showing your colors as a partisan - and not even an ideologue who puts values in ideas over party.
Nope, wrong-o, my support of the healthcare reform is as an actual doctor, as a healthcare provider. It's not perfect, but it's a major step in the right direction and helps close a lot of huge holes in the current healthcare system - ones that I deal with every day with my patients.
And there are many doctors who would disagree with you. I'm curious though - did you say that you are employed by a hospital or do you have your own practice?
