That's what happens when you invite a Republican relative to a family outing full of Democrats and vice versa.

Personally, I don't wish the man ill. I just wish he wasn't president. Nothing hateful about that. I was looking forward to getting Bush out of office too. What you don't seem to grasp, is that the majority of constituents don't like the current administration's policies.

Besides, look who the president would be. Biden! We've gone from stepping in dog $hit to slipping in dog $hit. We lose either way.
For another 30+ days, Pelosi is third in line. Now THAT is a REALLY scary thought. I look forward to the day she retires.

This was a Off Day, and The President was not working; Obama Was Playing Baskeball ! So Does Obama pay for the medical cost ? I Bet The American Tax Payers got Screwed once more by Obama !
You are going to have to wait a couple of years for that Christmas wish, but I'm with you there!

I hope the Republicans come up with a better option, but I can tell you straight-up, if the next presidential election gave me an option between Sarah and Barak, I'd vote for Sarah in a heartbeat. I honestly don't think she's Whitehouse material, BUT.... She's better than who we have. I'm disappointed that Pelosi, Reid and Frank kept their seats, but at least Pelosi had her gavel taken away!

I just hope Obama realizes that the Dems don't stand a chance if he seeks a second term.

I'm not opposed to crossing party lines, but I WON'T even consider it if they don't come up with a better option.

I was amused by an article a couple of days ago where they quoted a Dem Senator who suggested that Obama is a "right-leaning, moderate democrat" LOL!

Oh,,,,,boo hooooo. Get over it.

Most people don't like him.

I wished he was a much better president than he promised he would be.
It's a job. And he is an arrogant, condescending,
and inexperienced Chief of Blather.

If he had his whole mouth-hole stitched closed for a while, I promise, you people
wouldn't miss his message.

Get well soon, Mr. President.

Don't try to bring that weak s&it in here!!! I guess somebody in the family had enough of his ego and took him down a notch or two. Maybe he slipped on his prayer rug. GOOD, but come on man only twelve stitches no coma not even a broken bone those demo-lib family members can't do anything right. I've seen better games at Meerschiedt, remeber ghetto ball thursday nights back in the early 80's?
