Most of the US voted him back in though, right? He got my vote!
According to this- http://www.prycewarner.com/news-us-expats-sup... he's been proven ever popular almost all around the world (owing for China!).

Reports are Jeb Bush is cranking up 2016 war machine for Presidential run. OK Hillary you have the experience you know the deal. Bush versus Clinton 2016. No contest Hillary will be first female President.
The Republicans should rock their own boat and field Condoleeza Rice.

That would cause a political upset of the century, a shocker of the lifetime.

I dont care who says what I like Condoleeza Rice. Looks like she somewhat prefers the background. And then you have the forward airheads in the likes of Obama.

Clinton is a strong contender and deserves a chance or two, the thing is Americans sound tired of the Clintons, but this crisis needs strong characters like them.

Wow, an aerial vehicle that can fly overhead & see what you are doing.
We never had any of those before.
Very funny. Unlike aircraft, these drones are extremely difficult to detect. Some of them are very small and because they operate at such high altitudes, they are difficult to see and impossible to hear. And unlike aircraft, they can stay on station for days (and nights, they have night-vision optics) at a time. Because of camera technology, some are capable of reading a newspaper from an altitude of over 5 miles. But that's ok, like you libs like to say, if you're not doing anything wrong then you have nothing to hide.

Popular? Yes, hes a celebrity and should go to Hollywood.

He got your vote, WHY? The issue is not the vote but the reason for giving him the vote. Many dont know why they gave him their votes. Others voted him for tax cuts, welfare, etc, bad and shortsighted reasons if you ask me.

Popularity doesnt translate into effectiveness, competence and decisiveness. Obama is ineffective, incompetent and indecisive.

Tell me something, whats good and new under Obama in the US?

Are you talking about Malia, Obama's promiscuous 13-year-old daughter, who took a vacation last spring in drug-infested slum Oaxaca, Mexico with 12 of her party friends for a few days of drugs, booze and sex, all at the taxpayers expense, or are you talking about his other daughter, Shaqueema, or whatever the hell her name is.(By the way, Judicial Watch is suing the Obama administration for the expense. 25 Secret Service agents agents had to go along to protect this gang of little thugs).

If signed by Obama and ratified by the legislature, it will make the ownership of any firearm by a private citizen ILLEGAL in any of the participating countries.

The Treaty has to do with international arms sales.

Nokia is reporting record cellphone sales. Teraco Inc., the Midland, Tx. manufacturer of the magnetic strip EBT cards is hiring and working extra shifts to keep up with the demand for new cards. Some aspects of the Obama economy are improving.

Some of the new ones are real small and work in swarms like bees. Also some of the new ones are programed and have no pilot. Judgement Day?

You didn't learn very much during your draft-dodging days did you? You should have spent your time trying to get your GED instead of smoking dope and spitting on returning soldiers at airports.

Actually that's the basic definition of drone, aka UAV...no pilot. A missile is also a type of UAV but a drone is remotely controlled, usually by a crew in front of computer monitors.

The 2012 election was a substantial victory not only for President Obama but also for liberalism. Obama built his campaign on abortion rights and higher taxes for the wealthy. He was rewarded by an electorate that was younger, more pro-choice and more racially diverse than in 2008. The Obama coalition is not a fluke; it is a force.

Some conservatives have reacted in the tradition of Cicero:“Oh, the times! Oh, the customs!”Rush Limbaugh concluded,“We’ve lost the country,” which he described as a “country of children.”“There is no hope,” Ann Coulter said. And Bill O’Reilly:“It’s not a traditional America anymore.”

As a matter of strategy, it is generally not a good idea to express disdain for an electorate one hopes to eventually influence.

Without 'non-traditional' America the GOP might as well shut it down; or they can just get used to what happened on Tuesday.
Obama is a joke
