While that is an interesting opinion, it doesn't do a thing to bolster your opinion about Mitt Romney.

What was George W. Bush's lowest approval rating? 25%

So, let's recap...your guy lost and you were mad.

Your guy lost again and you are still bitter.

Get over it. You should be used to a disappointing life by now.

stfu you anti-American pos. You called the system disastrous. Get out of my country, dick.
You have a country?

I am currently stationed in sand land for Uncle Sam. I have earned the right to say that but won't. You see, I recall the Dixie Chicks lead singer exercising her right to free speech and being vilified for it. Fools like you claimed that if she dare speak ill of the President that she should pack her bags and move away.

That advice seems appropriate for you. True patriots realize that attacking the United States from within helps our enemies do the same externally. Traitor.

People who make bad choices never want to pay the piper when confronted with the price of their bad judgment. I would rather Obama make choices for you now than having the tax payer pick up the tab for your medical needs later because you had lousy insurance.
Slackers are far worse than those who desire health insurance but can't afford it. I have absolutely no sympathy for those who purchased lousy insurance AFTER the ACA was passed believing they could circumvent the law. NONE.
How anti-choice of you!!

Too many are talking mamby pamby discussing all this craziness so politely when we should be grabbing our pitchforks and storming the castle.
This president should be forced to step aside - by his own party.
He rejected any criticism of this law and the democrats called us every name in the book for doing the same.
Now that they're getting burnt by the fire they fueled, they have to be the ones to put it out.
Maybe NBC and CBS could help out the Magic Negro by editing more Sound Bites, eh?

...make it look like he didn't really say that you can keep your doctor, keep your old policy, etc.

Anything is possible when you combine lies on one side with wishful thinking on the other. They're a perfect fit.

No one is even talking about the hidden marriage tax in Obamacare.
A married couple who earns $62,040 or less for a family of two receives subsidies under Obamacare.
A married couple who earns just a dollar more, 62,041, could pay as much as $5000 or more in premiums.
Saying "I do" would cost some couples over $10,000 a year. The solution? Get a divorce.
Empty-nesters would pay an effective tax of $5,000 to $10,000 per year for the right to remain married.

Just a month ago, Democratic unity helped dispense a Republican-led effort to defund or delay the Affordable Care Act, their demands contributing to a government shutdown and threat of default on the national debt that badly damaged the GOP in the polls.
But the persistent difficulties with Healthcare.gov , anemic enrollment numbers during the first month for the insurance exchanges and a spate of canceled policies on top of Obama’s vow to allow people to keep their plans has compounded political difficulties facing the administration.
Just a month after the shutdown, Republicans are playing offense, and Democrats are on defense.

Obama's theme song:
Desperado, why don't you come to your senses?
You been out ridin' fences for so long now
Oh, you're a hard one
I know that you got your reasons
These things that are pleasin' you
Can hurt you somehow.
Magic Negro's Swan Song:

Smiling Faces - The Temptations

Smiling faces sometimes pretend to be your friend
Smiling faces show no traces of the evil that lurks within
Smiling faces, smiling faces sometimes
They don't tell the truth uh
Smiling faces, smiling faces
Tell lies and I got proof
The truth is in the eyes
Cause the eyes don't lie, amen

Remember a smile is just
A frown turned upside down
My friend let me tell you
Smiling faces, smiling faces sometimes
They don't tell the truth, uh
Smiling faces, smiling faces
Tell lies and I got proof

Beware, beware of the handshake
That hides the snake
I'm telling you beware
Beware of the pat on the back
It just might hold you back
Jealousy (jealousy)
Misery (misery)

You like Presidential quotes?

10/11/2000, George W. Bush, Candidate for President
"I don't think our troops ought to be used for what's called nation building."

11/01/2002, George W. Bush, President
"... for the sake of protecting our friends and allies, the United States will lead a mighty coalition of freedom-loving nations and disarm Saddam Hussein. See, I can't imagine what was going through the mind of this enemy when they hit us. They probably thought the national religion was materialism, that we were so selfish and so self-absorbed that after 9/11/2001 this mighty nation would take a couple of steps back and file a lawsuit.

02/08/2003, George W. Bush, President
"We also know that Iraq is harboring a terrorist network headed by a senior al Qaeda terrorist planner. This network runs a poison and explosive training camp in northeast Iraq, and many of its leaders are known to be in Baghdad."

05/01/2003, George W. Bush, President
"My fellow Americans: Major combat operations in Iraq have ended." Under the banner "Mission Accomplished."

Wait...the next three years saw the largest casualties of the war!

How about a flip flop ala the 'keep your policies if you want' kind?

09/17/2003, George W. Bush, President
Reporter: Mr. President, Dr. Rice and Secretary Rumsfeld both said yesterday that they have seen no evidence that Iraq had anything to do with September 11th.
George W. Bush: "We've had no evidence that Saddam Hussein was involved with the September 11th."

WTF? Didn't you stand before the nation and tell us all that he was not only involved but preparing to strike us again?

Still, that isn't the best Presidential quote, err, blunder from George W. Bush.

These two are my favorites:

"You work three jobs?... Uniquely American, isn't it? I mean, that is fantastic that you're doing that." --to a divorced mother of three, Omaha, Nebraska, Feb. 4, 2005

"I'll be long gone before some smart person ever figures out what happened inside this Oval Office." --Washington, D.C., May 12, 2008

I recall a whole lot of Americans exercising their right to free speech against the Dixie Chicks. Maybe Maines should have said it in the United States instead of on a London stage. Where is the fat little pig now? oh that's right:the Dixie Chicks plunged off a cliff. And why was that? because the American people did not support them. Simple economics pushed by freedom of choice and freedom of speech.

Actually, it's already a Democrats' nightmare because they know it isn't and there's no way it ever will be.
Republicans have not won the popular vote for President in the last two elections.

A C A is more popular than the republican house of reps.

very witty,
lets keep this going
"you're so stupid, you must be an obamacare baby"
If Obamacare was a car, there'd be a massive recall ordered by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

But, as it is, Obamacare is now a political football so we're all gonna be playing games for a long time to come.
