    Please Excuse My President

    Few things are more difficult in politics than confronting failure and learning from it. It is especially difficult when a leader you have championed, and in whom you have placed your highest hopes, turns out to be less than he seemed.
    Such is the dilemma facing liberals in the age of Obama. Barack Obama entered the presidency with his sights and standards very high, and many liberals believed he could be the transformative figure they had been awaiting for generations. But by now it is clear that, by any reasonable measure (including those set out by Obama himself at the beginning of his term), his presidency has been a failure.

    Solyndra: Politics infused Obama energy programs

    Then came the August morning when Sterio heard a newscaster announce that more than a thousand Solyndra employees were out of work. Only recently did she learn that, within the Obama administration, the company’s potential collapse had long been discussed.

    “It’s not about the people; it’s politics,” said Sterio, who remains jobless and at risk of losing her home. “We all feel betrayed.”

    Since the failure of the company, Obama’s entire $80 billion clean-
    technology program has begun to look like a political liability for an administration about to enter a bruising reelection campaign.

    Obama tells adoring crowd in Berlin: ‘We can’t hide behind a wall’

    Barack Obama received a hero’s welcome when he reunited with Angela Merkel for the first time since leaving office, calling on the audience to engage in democracy and telling the tens of thousands in Berlin: “We can’t hide behind a wall.”

    Speaking in front of the Brandenburg Gate, which was once cut off by the Berlin Wall, the former US president was greeted with cries of “Barack, Barack” as he urged the 70,000-strong crowd to “push back against those trends that would violate human rights or suppress democracy or restrict individual freedoms” and to “fight against those who divide us”.
    He said he was heartbroken by the suicide bombing in Manchester on Monday, which killed 22 people. Calling the world a “very complicated place”, he said: “We can see the terrible violence that took place just recently in Manchester. It is a reminder that there is a great danger of terrorism and people who would do great harm to others just because they’re different. How heartbroken we are by the loss of life, and we grieve with the families.”

    I voted for Obama in 2008.

    When one of his first acts as president was to bail out the corrupt banksters, without holding any of them accountable, he lost my vote in 2012.

    I understand why, economically speaking (for the good of the country, if not the entire world) a bailout was necessary, but there were no consequences for the corrupt banksters.

    The big banks need to be broken up, so that we never face that situation again.

    He also passed regulations on bankers (Dodd-Frank) to prevent the banks from getting themselves into trouble again. One of the first things 45 did was reverse Dodd-Frank, which of course the big lenders are loving!

    In the meantime, the banks have gotten bigger than ever.

    Dodd-Frank didn't break up the big financial institutions.

    Some financial experts believe that it led to increased consolidation - which, IMO, is not good for anyone but the 1%.

    One notable concern is that the law has forced consolidation of the United States banking system. The number of community banks (those with less than $10 billion in assets) shrank 14 percent between Dodd-Frank’s passage in 2010 and late 2014.

    As Senator Bernie Sanders has said (regarding the financial institutions): It it's too big to fail, it's too big to exist.
