Speaker Nancy Pelosi is exhibiting outstanding leadership abilities leading the lost democratic controlled congress with a whopping 9% approval rating. Now if we add Barack Obama to the mix that's change America can't afford. A vote for Obama is disaster for America. We need a leader that's going to lead from the front and not from the rear of Nancy Pelosi.

By the way President Bush's approval rating doubles that coming in at 22%.

Additioanlly, I have a special outhouse Malia Obama can decorate and the seat is even white....

you make a very good point about congress's approval rating, its sad really that in the last two years gas under the democratically controlled congress, Pelosi, who said before she was elected that she would bring down gas prices has done nothing but watch them increase almost 100% since the dems got control. They have done nothing but put up pointless resolutions to end the war but can never get enough votes to do anything. last time i checked i think they had tried around 55 times. how much time have they wasted that they could be trying to help the people of this country.

it would also have been nice if maybe the young senator from Ill. would have spent some of his first term in washington actually in his seat instead of trying to move up to the big house. maybe he could have learned something. maybe after this election when he's back in his senate seat he'll get a bit more experience and realize just how ignorant he is regarding the way the world and the economy works. Once he becomes a bit more conservative he might have a chance in 2016.

So why won't Barry just fess up (he was known as Barry Soetoro in Indonesia) and admit he is/was a Muslim and let the truth wash away his veneer of lies? No one will hate him for it. No one really cares except his campaign operation. And him.

Obama is going to make everything right in America.

http://www.aim.org/aim-column/does-obama-favo...

Everyone should remember that Obama belonged to Trinity United Church of Christ for 20 years. This is the anti-American, hate whitey give black’s reparations for slavery church.

The Obamas’ 2006 income tax return shows that they gave $22,500 to Trinity United Church of Christ.

You may buy Obamas’ BS but I do not.

Obama is one helleva dangerous guy. He does a good job of delivering a speech provided it’s written by someone else and provided he has time to rehearse it. Otherwise, he appears uncertain, searching for words and generally seems confused. The church he attended for 20 years, Trinity, has it’s roots in Black Liberation Theology. Black Liberation Theology is based on black power, socialism and Marxism. You’ve seen the Reverend Wright videos. This guy was Obama’s mentor - a man he looked up to. Obama attended this church and listened to this guy preach this stuff for 20 years. You do not do that unless you believe in it. He conveniently resigned from the church when it became apparent that his continued membership would hurt him politically. Black Liberation Theology believes that everyone should be equal - no wealthy class, no poor class. A large, central government would bring about equality by determining what everyone needs and providing it to them. If that sounds somewhat familiar to you, it should. It’s called Communism and it has failed anywhere and everywhere it’s been tried. Look at the friends Obama surrounds himself with. It’s tough to find any who are not corrupt, violent, subversive, anti-American or racist. Nearly every day a new questionable character pops up from Obama’s life . The question to ask is why is this man attracted to this type of character. Look at Obama’s voting record. Both in the Illinois State Senate and in the US Senate, he has failed to vote on hundreds and hundreds of issues. Listen to how he likes to say “I did not vote for……..“ He says that to make you think he voted against whatever issue he is speaking about. The truth is he seldom votes “against” or “for” anything. He simply doesn’t vote. And he never, never votes either way on any issue or legislation that is the least bit controversial. Obama is perhaps the greatest threat facing this nation today. If those who can see no deeper than the emotional rhetoric of this man walk blindly into the polls this November and manage to elect him, he will bring this country to its knees as it has never been before.

Why does Obama want to impose additional taxes on oil, gas and coal companies when it is well known that business s pass these additional costs on to consumers in the form of higher retail prices for gasoline and home heating oil?

Why does Obama want to give drivers’ licenses to illegal immigrants?

Why does Obama want to provide illegal immigrants with free healthcare?

Why does Obama want to block additional drilling for oil and advocate wind and solar power which are not proven to be technologically adaptable for wide scale use?

Why does Obama want to put the brakes on nuclear power when the rest of the world is embracing it and getting as much as 80 percent of their electric power from it?

Why does Obama want to send billions of our tax dollars to Africa and other foreign places to help alleviate poverty when there are American Citizens living in poverty and suffering hunger here in the United States?

Why does Obama want to raise income tax rates, the capital gains tax, the social security tax and reinstate the estate tax when these measures will hurt small businesses and the elderly living on their life savings?

do you really want to know why obama wants to do all of those things because i have a pretty good idea.

he is in the pocket of the extreme left and the environmental lobby. they are so anti-business and anti-freedom that they really and truely hate that people in this country are free to make their own decisions. They want to create a communist/marxist governemt that conrols all business and redistributes wealth so that everyone seems equal. that is why the left constantly pushes agenda disguised as social programs to get people hooked on governemt education and healthcare so that they can teach kids what they want them to know and subvert traditional family values.

its a dangerous time people. we need to get the message out.
