The Republican Party needed a Token Minority so DeMint and The Tea Baggers Pressured Haley into appointing Scott...She had to play along because they needed a Black Face to put on the Senate Floor for show-&-tell...
"Scott wasnt appointed to the Senate because he was Black but ONLY because of his opposing Polices.."....LOL....TOTAL BullShit and you're Ignorant if you think any different...
Because you have not been keeping up with the ACA, (which is not universal healthcare) doesn't mean things have not been changing. There have been many changes and if you have a policy either private or through a employer I would imagine you received information via the provider as required by law regarding new coverages implemented in 2011, & 2012 for added coverage such as physicals, testing, & inoculations (i.e flu shots) that must be covered. There are tax benefits and further parts of the program as well. Yet it won't be fully up and running until 2014.
There are good and bad things about ACA, it may appear lackluster but a great deal of crap written on it by its opponents are just lies and trolling urban myths. The ACA is far from what reform is needed for cost control, yet its a good start. Far better than anything ever done, and the Republicans wish nothing would get done. They are happy with the statu quo
Likely other things listed in your post you are equally unread on. Its so cliche to say the obvious "Google is your friend", but then again you really don't sound like you give a shit about facts but just stirring it. Of course if you are not directly related as a American this would be understandable but then why even bring it up?
The simple answer to your question yes Obama is a politician. As is a garter snake a snake but a far less dangerous &. gentler snake then the venomous spitting cobra . Those spitting cobras lost the top seat in 2008 and in 2012, a even more dangerous serpent tried to take the white house.
