I have not been a big fan of the president because of the lack of progress on a large number of projects I believe are worthy of addressing... GITMO being one of my big ones, how easily I forgot that the Senate would not approve the money to move them so it didn't happen... I believe there was another way and if I had the job I would have used the saving from closing GITMO and used the Federal facility setting vacant no prisoners.. Now you know the savings would have been tremendous .This could have been done with no votes but a lot of screaming from the right side.. Tough you have been outmaneuvered.
A FOOTNOTE: AFTER WATCHING DAY ONE OF THE DEMOCRATIC CONVENTION JUST THE POSITIVE TONE OF DAY 1 IS ENOUGH FOR ME..OH HELL YOU KNEW I'D RATHER DIE THAN VOTE REPUBLICAN
But just so you can refresh your memory here is a partial list of bills blocked in the Senate one way or another
