For once I thought someone in the main stream media was actually going to give an objective assessment of Obama's many failing policies. Economy? Weakest "recovery" in history. Housing? Obama HAMP program still showing 40 percent default rates for those it "helped". Benghazi? Fast and Furious? On and on... no accountability from those that are supposed to ask the "tough questions"?

The GOP hasn't changed their obstructionist policies since the election. They talk about changing but when they obstruct the Senate by requiring a 60 vote margin on every vote, they have not changed. Senator Toomey, a Republican from PA, stated that some GOP are just against anything the President of for and that doesn't help with the economy or other reforms. At least a few (and I mean a few) of the GOP like Toomey have seen their political capital increase with their ability to compromise. President Obama's capital hasn't changed from his first 100 days in his first term when McConnell stated their main goal was to make sure he was a one term President. The groups who voted against the policies of the GOP have only grown bigger.

One hundred days in and Obama is still a failed president. Was someone expecting something else?
