Senator Obama in 2005, when Republicans suggested the nuclear option to streamline appointments. Calling it a matter of "protecting free and democratic debate," Sen. Obama made a compelling argument for Republicans to "rise above ends justify the means mentality" and not "end democratic debate." Arguing that Americans sought to send representatives to Congress while minimizing nasty discussions, hoping for Senators to "disagree without being disagreeable," he warned that, should the rules change, "the fighting and the bitterness and the gridlock will only get worse."

To go through with the nuclear option, argued Sen. Obama, would be "to change the rules in the middle of the game so that they can make all the decisions while the other party is told to sit down and keep quiet."

Most notably, Senator Obama predicted, "one day, Democrats will be in the majority again, and this rule change will be no fairer to a Republican minority than it is to a Democratic minority." Though a Democratic majority currently exists in the Senate and succeeded where the Republican majority in his time as Senator failed, President Obama did not make any such statements about the relative fairness of the measure Thursday.

Instead, President Obama praised the nuclear option as a way to stop the "pattern of obstruction in Congress that has prevented too much of the American people's business from getting done."

If you still support Obama it means you have convinced yourself that lying is OK and being a two faced bastard.
Ridiculous

The Harvard poll shows that Obama's approval rating with 18- to 29-year-olds now stands at 41%, a dramatic 11-point drop from April. Fifty-four percent said they disapprove of the president's performance.

The Harvard pollsters noted that during the time they conducted their latest survey of young Americans, national polls of the general population showed that Obama's approval rating hovered between 37% and 40%.

Support from young voters was "crucial" to Obama's two successful presidential campaigns.

Perhaps more troubling for Obama, the poll showed 40% of young Americans believe Obamacare will bring worse care, 51% believe it will bring higher costs and 57% said they disapprove of the president's signature law.

"Although Millennials have held firm in their approval of the president in past polls, we are now seeing a sea change among this critical demographic," said Trey Grayson, director of Harvard Institute of Politics.

Among the 18- to 29-year-olds currently without health insurance, less than a third say they're likely to enroll in the exchange. Thirteen percent say they will definitely enroll, 16% say they will probably enroll, and 41% say they are split 50-50 on whether they will enroll, according to the poll.

The latest sobering poll numbers come as Obama took part in a youth summit at the White House on Wednesday, where he encouraged uninsured young people to sign up for health care. Enrolling plenty of young, healthy people is considered critical to making the Affordable Care Act a success.

The kids are coming to understand what Obama is.

Your freedom of speech is a constitutional right that the Government cannot take away. Here on an internet forum, you have no rights other than what the owners and moderators of this forum set forth in the Terms of Service.

You also have a right to be stupid, to which you exercise it well...

Apparently pretend must be a Topix employee, or the founder...What's the matter Pretend, is your poor loser Obummer getting his butt whooped on this forum, and you don't like it? I bet if there was some smack about Sarah Palin, or some other threatening conservative that could run this country better then "O", that would be fine. You would just love that. You can bet nothing would be censored either. It is no different then how the media is biased. I would just love to see fairness in journalism, and not the spin. Although, it has gotten a little better since "O" is starting to tank! I can not wait for the 2014 elections, when the republicans retake the Senate, and keep control of the House!!! It's about time we start cleaning up the mess that has been created. All we have to do, is sit back and watch the ole Pres. bury himself even deeper!! Pretend, that kool aid your drinking has made your brain mushy!
