Yeah, I too think that Obama is so dense.

[1-1]
The other day, American-media APPLAUSED that
Obama played golf most among the U.S.Presidents.

American-media APPLAUSED Obama that Obama played too much golf.

Even I too think that Obama has many problems.

[1-2]
Even Republican-media applaused that Obama plays golf.

Oh, and, Republican-media applaused that Obama love shotgun-huntings too.

[2]
Some one (of course Americans), please raise and become American-ppoliticians for the U.S. and for Americans.

[3]
Obama is not a low-profile coordinator.
Obama is only bribed by the rich.

[4]
(I have NO intention to protect Democratic-Party.)

But, so, tea-party or anything are all the same.

They only love highh-price of American-stock-prices.

They donot care American-budget.
They donot care American-trade-balance.
They donot care American debt.
They donot care Americans' jobs.
They donot care American National-Security.

They care stock-prices, so they love Obama's golf and Obama's shotgun-huntings.

Even American-Generals are treated as celebrities.
And, American-Generals loved the treatments.

[5]
I can understand that you hate American-Democratic-Party.

But.
Do you really love American-Republican-Party and tea-party?

[6]
Americans must anger.
Americans must rise now!

[7]
It seems to me that
American-media and top1% are exploiting Obama as excuses.
Like this.
"Even Obama too is playing rich-lives!"
"So, no one can deny us!"

Americans must anger now!
Americans must rise now!

We Americans need Occupy Wall Street only in the U.S. only for Americans now!

I DO love the U.S.! I DO love Americans!

Help me!
I am afraid that FBI would arrest me?!?!?!?

I want to be an American!
I want to live in the U.S. permanently as soon as possible.
Help me!

I will be buried in American-grave in the U.S.

Obviously you're not smart enough to be on the RIGHT side of history huh?
The republicans were the writers of the greatest document in history, the constitution, they were the party that FREED the slaves, and STOPPED Jim Crow laws in the South, the party who stood with women to END voting discrimination laws against women, the party who brought economic prosperity to people after the disastrous Carter years, the party who had a hand in ENDING the cold war, the party who defeated a dictator's reign in the GulfWar, the party who stands up for ALL RIGHTS, including those who do not have a voice. And NOW this GRAND ole party is standing up to a bloated, unread law that will destroy this country's healthcare AND economy!! I am so proud to be a part of a party who believes in true equality and prosperity!!
Are you so deeply ensconced in your ideology that you can't look at the whole picture objectively?
There was a time when I use to have respect for Republicans. Those days are long gone. In the old days, there were a few good old party Republicans, not like the ones you see today. Both parties have changed with the times, but I will still go with the Demos because they are still a few steps better then the currant lot of Republicans we now have. Everyone should have affordable healthcare - everyone. These currant politicians have some of the best healthcare in the world which is partly paid by the American taxpayers, yet they would deny others? Greed, indifference and blindly refusing to understand average Americans issues is not going to help this country move ahead or solve the problems many are so desperately experiencing. We know the mess the last president left us with. A mess that is taking a long time to recover from and some of that damage is permanent. While I do believe President Obama did not always accomplish everything he wanted, he has made some progress. When I hear Boehner and his cohorts, I know I will not vote Republican in the next election. Demos are not perfect, but a Republican president imo, would be even worse for this country. I'd rather have a president who at least attempts peace rather then to have an all out war, only to have so many people having to suffer for it; civilians and non-civilians. The money exhausted in an unnecessary war has already taken its toll, including the outsourcing of our jobs. It seems, the only people profiting in this country, have been the ultra rich corporations and greedy politicians who back them. No concern for average Americans. Well it's time for average Americans to step up to the plate before it's too late for all of us.

What do you think the fight over this shutdown is about? The Republicans WANT Government to have the SAME plan that they are inflicting on American citizens! It's one of the TWO sticking points Republicans are wanting to negotiate. The other one is that the GOP wants the PEOPLE to get the SAME healthcare exceptions that are being given to corporations IE: dem donors.

Just like most democratic voters, you are grossly uninformed!! The very things your complaining AGAINST are what the dems are fighting FOR!

And can you honestly say that a bloated, unread bill, written by big pharm and lobbyist who made sure that the law would be very profitable for MANY, none of which includes poor Americans however, is a good thing for this country?

Do a little research, take off the political goggles and try and look at things a little more objectively, you will certainly NOT be proud of being a democratic voter if you do.

The problem with our government is that it is ours. We have allowed the people in office, local and national to become the elite of our country. Way back when, old Tom and the others that signed that piece of paper that Obama hates to look at, thought they would prevent people from becoming Lords, Earls, Kings and so on. Over the years, the people we have elected and allowed to stay in office are the Lords, Kings, Queens and so, they voted themselves more goodies than what any candy store has to offer. We, as a whole, are so damn dumb we deserve the government we keep electing year after year. They all should be removed, term limits put in place and no pensions for serving just one term. How in the hell did that happen? I did not vote for it.
Nobody cares Glen.

And you actually have "respect" for the Democratic party?
This is the worse economy in 70+ years,
the most divided government,
the most Americans begging for food assistance,
the most Americans closing their family businesses,
the most Americans losing their homes,
the first time in history that America lost their A+ credit rating,
the BIGGEST debt AND deficit in history

and all of that at a time when we have

*A President who has played an unprecedented amount of golf games (more than 125, each lasting approximately 6 hours each time)

*Hosted MORE celebrity parties at the White house than any President in history.

*Taken more lavish vacations on the tax-payer's dime!

And THIS is what you're proud of???

Very nice try, but to blame the "tea party" for this nations problems and economy is beyond idiotic!!

So you're saying that PRESIDENT Obama's leadership is so ineffective that holding 2 out of three branches of government has not been enough to match the tea party's power?

Hahaha how gullible can democratic voters really get? The ALL-POWERFUL tea party is not responsible for the shut down or the economy, please turn off MSNBC and educate thyself!
