We got him elected in 2008 because the GOP flushed America's economy and international prestige down the toilet. Now we need to vote re-elect him to prove we don't all have AMNESIA and early-onset ALZHEIMER'S!

Obama got Osama! Four more years!

Uhmmm, Navy Seals got Osama. Obama had to pull the proverbial trigger. Do you really think he had a choice in this matter. Kill him and get re-elected, take him alive and risk everything. Hmmm.

I think it's funny how Obama supporters claim Republicans, or Bush flushed trhe economy using claims generalities to support those claims... They always conveniently forget that the economy was humming alond nbicely till after the Democrats trook control of the House and Senate...They never want to acknowledge the Housing bubble or how Barney Frank and Chris Dodd claimed Fannie Mae and Freddie were solvent.. All they have are generalities about "Tax Breaks for the rich", or "George Bush did it"...

Let's see now...What was it our current President said about the jobless rate not going above 8%? Wasn't this just before he pushed a trillion dollar spending bill? All those promises met with failure...The Government cannot create jobs in the private sector and Government jobs mean only more government spending....Government can only create an atmosphere condusive to business and so far Obama has failed at that.....

Obama owns this economy yet continues to blame Republicans and George Bush..

Actually, the information on Osama came from the detainees at Guantanamo Bay Cube, which was established under President Bush. President Obama wanted it shut down and the interrogations to stop. So you can thank the former President more than the current one for the Seals getting Osama.

I'll give Obama credit for making an no brainer decision to take Bin Laden out when we nailed his location.. I will also give him his credit for allowing our forces(as in drone attacks) to attack al Qaeda and the Taliban where we find them..He promised that he would attack them in Pakistan if we know they are there.. With a kid and other relatives in the Army, I've been waiting for him to keep his promise to bring them home from Iraq within 16 months aftr taking office.. I'm still waiting. I knew he could not keep that promise, but enough people believed it to get elected though...

Thank God he had the sense to break his promise about Gitmo being closed by the end of his first year..His criticism of the Patriot Act has also had a transformattion from campaign promise to reality... As have most of the Bush Doctrine policies he has maintained.. Now if we could just get him to use the words us, we and the United States instead of I & me when referring to this country's policies and hopes.

He was stopped cold in his tracks in using civilian trials for Gitmo detainees by Congress... This was supported by both sides of the aisle too......

Just my thoughts on the realities of our President....

I'm a Democrat, but I'm not stupid enough to believe anyone's campaign promises. Especially candidates who are new to the Oval Office. They don't know what it is that they need to know until they get in there. My voting decisions are made on who holds the same convictions as I do...Namely, universal health insurance, equal rights for all colors, genders, and sexual identities, and determination to eliminate fraud and abuse in government programs. Whoever comes closest to these ideals gets my vote. I know that timelines and methods of achievement will vary depending on congress, the constitution, etc. Promises are made just to get votes.......and that goes for ALL parties.

We have plenty of alternatives. Alternatives that are not Chi-town community organizers that have never been proud of our country until they were elected to office. How pompous is that?

[pompous 1. self-important: having an excessive sense of self-importance, usually displayed through exaggerated seriousness or stateliness in speech or manner.]

This guy had two years; a democratic house and senate, and rammed the most socialistic, apocalyptic, and U.S. bankrupting piece of legislation (of biblical proportions) down the American peoples throat. At what cost? Well... the rich can pay higher taxes, yeah the rich. Let's penalize the men and women who took out thousands in student loans to become Dr.s, and Engineers, and Lawyers, etc., etc., etc. We can tax them at... what rate is good enough to penalize them for their achievement 70%, 75%, 80%. Most are already paying well over 50% a Dr. I know is paying 60% now. The elderly they're on their last gasp let's get some of these baby boomers that are sucking the life out of this country off Social Security and Medi-Care by squeezing them a little harder. Maybe they will die of heart related hypertension from the strain of wondering whether to buy food or medication. This guy needs to go. He's an idiot with a socialistic agenda of penalizing good hard working Americans. He wants to redistribute our wealth, just what the H does that mean. Tell Karl Barak Marx Obama to step off, and go someplace he can be proud of like... China.

That is just special. You and Glenn Beck sound an awful lot alike. Put the chalk board down and lay off the fear flakes for a day or two. The sun will rise tomorrow... I promise.

Seems like all he does is play golf or go on another vacation. Most Presidents run the country, not just play golf or go on vacations. Thought this guy was suspose to make this country better, not worse. Guess he does it because he has no idea how to run our great country! Do not re-elect obama in 2012!

Lets not generalize... George W spent 487 days during his presidency vacationing at camp david. He spent 879 days vacationing at his ranch in crawford texas. W was the record breaker for taking vacation days for any sitting president in history.

You're comparing 8 years to 2.5 years.. Break that down to same amount of time or maybe extrapolate Obama's time in office up..

I believe I read that W's vacation time equated to 1/3 of his term being spent on vacation, but I am not going to quote this statement as fact without more research.

You can, however, do a search on the internet for official stats and see that Obama is taking a lot less vacation time comparatively. The issue is that some faux news sources point out each time Obama takes a day off - constantly harping on it, but failing to compare it to the previous administration.

From whom do the Navy Seals take orders? Obama, the commander-in-chief. Obama risked his entire political future on getting Osama and would have taken the full brunt of failure if he had not succeeded. He lost a $60 million dollar stealth helicopter. Hey, nobody's perfect.

Don't you remember President Carter's failed mission to rescue the hostages in Iran? Maybe you are too young. The Republicans have made so much hay over that for 30 years portraying Carter as weak and ineffectual and Reagan as the great savior. But not this time, buddy, a strong Democratic president triumphed and it really chaps your hide, doesn't it?

I posted a previous post that has since been deleted somehow. I will post in my own words this time. Obama and his justice department are seeking a criminal case against the same Seal Team for punching a guy in the nose. He called Seal Team Six Cheney's personal assassination team in 2008 then praised them for assassinating bin laden. Every word out of his mouth is a lie. He is against capitalism and for socialism or worse, communism. I fought for 20 years against those sorts of regimes. I will be DAMNED if I stand by and allow him to circumvent the Constitution and our way of life for the HOPE he promises is also a LIE. You are right about ONE thing. the very mention of Obama does CHAP MY HIDE. this TEA party individual will actively ensure he does not get re-elected.
