    Pres.Obamas headaches won't go away till after midterms and then maybe with new blood injected as well with new reps that actually care for their constituents instead of holding them hostage over everything Pres.Obama does than things are as usual on Capital Hill!!Voters beware you've seen your republicans in action over these short years and its time to go forward obviously without them if something is going to get done for America and its people!!

    The picture is chosen to send wrong message for unhinged tea party. It is purposely done good work CNN. Building on the idea that the POTUS main job is to salute when he goes in and out. Putting the man unnecessarily under microscope is a disgrace but good for him it makes him human.

    The President expects headaches with a job like this but he has had more rampant hate and obstruction than most other presidents. He has handled it with class though and has continued to do his job to the best of his ability. Imagine what could have been accomplished in the country if the GOP had met him half way. Also, the media continues to pick scabs off of healing wounds and tries to sensationalize and scandalize every little thing just to boost ratings and make big supporters happy. It is very annoying and disappointing.

    If he has headaches its his own making. No one has caused these problems but him., but he never seems to take responsibility for anything. Can't blame Bush FOREVER.

    It is of course the Country's problems, voted on, or ignored by the people that persist. When someone tries to identify the problem, and suggest a cure, they are treated rudely.. As ignored as it is, there is still a Constutition, corrupted so badly no one recoginized it any more. The few that do, are shouted down, so no one tries to fix it. The Politicians are smart enough to ignore the problem and hand it to the next bunch. The people voted for it, and it is they that will suffer the consequences.

    sue – When has Bush ever accepted responsibility for destroying the country? Never. Seems only fitting that President Obama keeps reminding people, since low-IQ individuals like you always forget.

    I agree with your well written post. If I may take it one step futher, I would point out that the media for all of its wishful thinking in trying to drag this man down to their level of incompetence is losing public support, not gaining more viewers. I really do think most Americans have gotten past the political bickering so prevalent in the GOP/TP.

    "Can't blame Bush forever"..........

    I can, and will, until we fully recover from the devastation he and his "Administration" have caused.
    Today's Republicans are no better. They are pure obstructionists and silly little pouters. They are impeding the
    recovery and worse, they don't care.

    This is a day to thank our troops, and those we have lost, who continue to do their jobs and sacrifice their lives
    for you and me.
    That includes the over 4,000 troops lost in the unnecessary war started by Bush/Cheney and Rumsfeld--
    who failed them miserably.
    Have a nice day – enjoying your freedom.
