The president votes present, in hopes of diverting most Americans from his "progressive" reactionary hooey.
Increasingly, Americans aren't buying it. That's what the midterms were all about.
The Pew survey of 2,257 adults also found that people using social media for political purposes were slightly more likely to have voted for a Republican in the 2010 midterm elections.
Because we know we're stuck with this crushing Big Government tab. WTF. Driving ordinarily mild-mannered Americans to join the World Taekwondo Federation.

More. Is our president Barack Obama smarter than a 5th grader? Ben Stein:
There were two glimpses of the old Obama -- when he slammed "subsidies" for oil companies, which of course do not get any subsidies, but have business deductions the way every other business does, he sounded every bit like the envious skinny Harvard man he once was. When he railed against tax breaks that he considered identical to government spending, that was outright socialism. That concept implies that all the income in the nation belongs to the state, and that if we let working people keep any of it, that is the same as a government expenditure. The opposite is true. The income belongs to the people, and they allow government to have some of it. But, of course, the servant has become the master now.
